Guest post from SourGrapes.ie: Wine for €5!
Big thanks to our pal Lar Veale of sourgrapes.ie, who has provided us with this guest post about a good wine for only €5 from Aldi. I’m always on the lookout for the finest cheapest booze, so this tip is very welcome indeed.
Bushland Reserve Shiraz – wine for a fiver from Aldi
A €5 wine may not need any more introduction than its pricetag. But when you think that almost half the price tag goes to our beloved or beleaguered government, it’s amazing that it’s even safe to drink let along tasty. Heck, it works out around the same as many of the fancier spring waters out there.
Anyway, this is not the big blockbuster Barossa style of Shiraz, but don’t let that put you off. It’s made in the Hunter Valley area of New South Wales and what you get for your €5 is layers of chocolate and coffee with intense raspberries and strawberries topped off with some subtle black pepper spice.
For a fiver, it’s very hard to beat.
Do you have any wine recommendations from Aldi or Lidl?
