I'm stocking up fpr Xmas. One of my friends has selflessly tried lots of champagne, and confidently asserts that lidl at just under a tenner is unbeatable, but as I have spend the majority of this year not drinking, what white and red recommendations does anyone have? I like dry whites (ABC Anything But Chardonnay) and heavy chewy reds, and aim to spend around 6-8 per bottle (esp when originally more expensive), will splash out on a couple of more expensive ones if they come highly recommended.

Tesco Finest Tapiwey Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a nice Chilean wine, this is currently priced at £6 per bottle and has some fruity aromas such as gooseberry.

We have had the Turner Road Reserve Merlot a few times and this I find is a nice red wine. This is currently £7.50 at Tesco as well. Smile

The Hardys Crest Sparkling Rose is also a nice wine.

It seems after looking on Tesco's website, they have culled a huge selection of wines from their range.

I have a feeling that I am going to be disappointed this Christmas!

I would stay away from the Hardys Varietal (VR) range, they do taste a little cheap to me.

Some of the Hardys stamp rage are quite nice such as Semillon Sauvignon Blanc also priced at around £6.

Wolfblass Yellow Label is another good day to day bottle so to speak although that is the Chardonnay priced around £7 which you have stated you don't like, although they do have a Red Label range where they have a Chardonnay Semillon priced around £5 which I find nice and maybe worth taking a chance on?

We use a Hardys Stamp Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon in our home made beef and mushroom pies and isn't a bad slurp either which is also another one to look out for.

These are all Australian wines BTW which I'm sure you already know. Smile

One glass is enough. Quite tasty as a bedtime drink.

Anyone remember Alice King the wine expert for the Daily Mail years ago?

She appeared on various cooking shows and remember her featuring on one of Delia Smith's Christmas Episodes.

She turned out an alcoholic in the end and lost pretty much everything which is such a shame.

So remember everyone to drink responsibly and don't spill a drop! Razz
