A fantastic deal this week from Aldi whose wine department you should definitely check out if you haven't already done so.
It's the Vina Decana Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon Crianza 2008, a rioja-like red from Utiel Requena in Valencia in southern Spain. With its old-fashioned presentation it's obviously designed to look like rioja, right down to the gold netting that covers the bottle but it's the taste that's so impressive - a really smooth red, with soft, ripe plummy fruit.
You could easily serve it for sniffy guests who would think it cost at least twice as much as it does. Which is just £3.99. Amazing.
It would go with a wide range of food but would be particularly good with roast lamb.
