It might feel like there’s little to celebrate right now but I wanted to post one last time this year for two reasons. The first is to say a big fat thank you for making The Knackered Mother’s Wine Club such a joy to write. I absolutely love reading your comments and emails and appreciate every single one. The second is to wish you and yours lots of love and happiness for the (hopefully healthier) new year. And if there’s one thing I might be able to offer at this time it’s a couple of wine recommendations to add a little joy to proceedings, however small.
Cheers, winos x
Current white in the rack: Domaine Skouras Assyrtiko
Price: £12.99 - Buy From Majestic
If your taste buds are feeling done in after the festive period, this is the kind of white to shake everything back into focus. A crisp, bright white with buckets of citrus and a touch of green apple fruit about it from Greece. Yes, I said Greece. It’s got a groove, etc.
Current red in the rack: Tesco Finest Chianti Classico
Price: £8.00 - Buy From Tesco
I’m having a bit of a moment with Italian reds (my new book is set partly in Italy) and at the moment I’m hankering after the cherry pop of Chianti. This one’s slicker than your average Chianti Classico at under a tenner, perfect when there’s a plate of pasta in front of you. Properly great value.
