Christmas has finally hit us with it annual ‘cripes it’s here already’! This year our good friends in the supermarkets have kept their wine offers flowing.
SuperValu continues to give us (up to the 26th) Buy 6 Bottles and Save an additional €10 on a huge number of wines. The trick here is to recognise good value at the shelf price and then go for the tenner off!
Right now (if they have any left) the box of 6 SELECCIÓN REY LIMITADA is fabulous value. This was flash priced at €50 before the €10 offer was announced. So now you get it for €40! The SuperValu note is good for this: … we give you this Gold Medal Winning Wine voted “The Best Spanish Red Wine.” A blend from Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Monastrell which shine in the glass in brilliant ruby colour. The wine exudes a rich, fruity aroma, dominated by dark berries with spicy notes and vanilla flavours all complemented by aging in small oak barrels giving a pleasant full-body palate, with a very fine texture and delicate spice finish.
Others that are well worth looking out for include the Portuguese Fado Friendship Reserva. €10 nets back to €8.33 a bottle. This is a fabulous blend of Tinta Roriz, Alicante Bouschet & Syrah . Portuguese wines are a wow!
Villa Maria continues to be yardstick for a quality Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. It also nets back to €8.33. Whatever your tipple is – such as the Albert Glas Pinot Noir: very good with turkey! – you can get the €10.00 off when you buy six bottles. Top class from a retailer that brings us a better and better selection year on year every year.
