Here’s an idea. Next time you’re in Waitrose (don’t protest, I know you’re always in there. You’re so middle class.), snag yourself the pair of wines depicted above. Both of them are on offer (yes, yes, my pretties) — 25% off, I think — and both of them are bloody good.
Both are zingy and dry and gob-enlivening as you like. The Vina Taboexa Albarino is all zest and candied lemon and crisp spring mornings; the Domane Wachau Gruner Veltliner is stonier, leaner, less fruited. Both of them are goddamn delicious. If this sodding rain would ever stop, you’d be entirely sensible to sneak out into the evening sunshine with a bottle of either.
Snap them up (potentially in bulk) while they’re ludicrously cheap. That is, in the next two days.
BUT STAY AWAY FROM WAITROSE IN PUTNEY. Those’n’s are mine.
One thought on “Winsome White Wines from Waitrose”
Wasnt too keen on the Albarino last time I tried it but the Gruner is rather decent especially at that price.
Looks like i’m middle class then… living in a small county market town, shop at waitrose etc etc. Good.
