OK so. First things first: I really hope you like the new look. Back when I started this whole thing I thought, instead of people calling me from the supermarket wine aisle on a Friday afternoon wailing ‘WTF DO I BUY?!’, I’ll post a couple of wine recommendations each week on a blog. Simple. But I also wanted you to be able to search for a wine exactly as you wished, whether that’s by shop, price, colour, style – whatever, on your phone from the wine aisle if you needed to. Now, you can do just that. Click on the ‘Wine Reviews’ tab along the top of the website and off you go! There are pictures of the labels, hopefully making the wines easier to find. And in ‘KM Loves’, a few other recommendations including glasses, decanters and other non-wine, non-essential but still very lovely things. Anyway, take a look around (glass in hand if poss) and in the meantime, more wine.
Current white in the fridge: Exquisite Collection Limestone Coast Chardonnay 2014
Price: £5.99 - Buy From Aldi
The thing about Chardonnay is that, as a grape, it’s a bit like a blank piece of paper. What it tastes like in the glass depends completely on where and how it’s made. This one’s deliciously curvy, ripe and round thanks to a ton of Australian sunshine, but lovely and fresh too. It’s a good one for roast turkey, btw.
Current red in the rack: Trizanne Signature Grenache/Shiraz 2013
Price: £7.49 - Buy From Waitrose
A really good South African red, based on a classic Rhone recipe where the Shiraz grape (or Syrah as it’s known in France) is blended with another red grape, Grenache. Made in the Swartland region, it’s loaded with pleasingly plushy bramble fruits and spice thanks to a bit of oak. Good with lasagne, happily.
One word: ACE! xx
