Aldi - they've got the nicest wine

20 July 2015

wine Are you a fan of wine? Do you drink loads of it, but feel like you're not a borderline alcoholic because each glass is 'deserved' or 'cheeky'? Well, if you want some really nice wine, you need to get yourself to Aldi.

At the International Wine Challenge, Aldi came up trumps with their £6.99 own-label plonk called 'The Exquisite Collection Clare Valley Riesling', and apparently, it actually doesn't taste like indigestion in a fancy bottle.

The International Wine Challenge is a made up of an experienced panel of judges, who are all really good at rolling wine around their mouths and making impenetrable notes on the whole thing. Rest assured, the review you're interested in is that it is 'really nice'.

And at £6.99, you don't need to be a wine connoisseur to get stuck into a bottle.

Tony Baines, Aldi's managing director for corporate buying, said: "We are delighted to have received a Great Value Champion award. It reinforces our core principles of offering our customers great tasting, world class wines at affordable prices, and making the exciting world of wine accessible to all."

Aldi know what they're doing. They won the title of 'Multiple Wine Retailer of the Year' from their posho mates at Waitrose in February 2015. So even if the bottles of The Exquisite Collection Clare Valley Riesling have sold out, you'd be advised to chance your arm - and your liver - on something else from their shelves.
