[Wine] 2 wines to try from Aldi

I've been sampling a lot of Aldi wine recently, and it's fair to say that they are offering some great value for money at the moment. Out of all the bottles I've tried, two have stood out as bottles that I am happy to recommend to you. 

First up is a barrel-fermented Limoux Chardonnay from Langudedoc legend and wine producer Jean Claude Mas. It's a rich, full-bodied wine with crisp lemons and apples, a touch of honey, underpinned by a luscious buttery, nutty oak finish. The heavy bottle is uniquely attractive in its own right. This is a cracker served cold on its own, or with a Sunday roast chicken. Plus, it scored an impressive 90 points on a recent Decanter tasting



For my red wine recommendation, I'm hopping across continents, all the way down to Australia in fact. Barossa Valley is famous for its Shiraz vines, and this Iron Horse example is a great way to get acquainted with the style. It's rich and deep with juicy blackberries and black fruit, a touch of pepper and deep chocolatey notes. Look out for its distinctive label featuring a yellow vintage tractor. High end Shiraz often costs €20+ and while this bottle doesn't quite scale great heights, it's fantastic value at €9.99.
