Current white in the fridge: Territorio Torrontes 2013, £6.49, Tesco
I was sent this Argentinian white to try (don’t cry for me). From one of the highest and driest vineyard locations in the world, in the north of Argentina. The grape is called Torrontes, not really found anywhere but here. And the style is decidedly floral, with a kind of lemony, jasmine thing going on. Light but not feeble, it’s gorgeous. And great value. Loved my crab and avocado on toast (one of my favourite quick suppers when the Husband’s away).
Current red in the rack: Vinalba Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec Merlot, £7.50 (currently on offer), Sainsbury’s
Another Argentinian wine, this time from the southernmost wine region. If you like big reds, this is one such. Made from a blend of traditional Bordeaux grapes, it’s then aged in French barrels giving it a lovely oaky flavour along with masses of brambly black fruits. Proper autumnal wine, this one. Just add a sofa, blanket and a book. Half term happiness guaranteed.
