It’s the silly season
25th Nov 2017
Christ Mass if you are a true believer
To Wet the Babies head
And if not time to remind yourself
If that was needed to stock up on wine
I am not going to be a pretentious prick
I know nothing about wines
Except the ones I like and can afford.
So that rules out the
The Italian lights
The Californian raisons
And so I am left with the Chilean Champions
Start with Aldi’s Andara Red
Merlot if you like it full bodied
Cabernet Sauvignon if you like it softer.
For a White settle for Sauvignon Blanc for a dry number
or Chardonnay if you like it sweeter but not sticky sweet.
I know its only £4 a bottle but do you have to tell your friends that
Just say its a little number you were told about on rightsandwrongs.
So you like it cheaper …..then try Tesco when they have 25% off if you buy 6 bottles
Say 3 of each – but stick with the Chilean as I described.
They charge £4.35 a bottle
but with the discount each bottle comes to £3.26 a bottle
And there you have it
Why waste more on wines.
Having just about returned from the Philippines I want to let you into a secret
To really show off to your friends –
Red Horse beer by San Miguel at 6.9 % alco.
Get it by the litre if you can but you may need
to order 24 x 330ml cans from Amazon or a Philippine Shop near you.
One litre bottle in the Philippines at the supermarket costs about £1 equivalent
But if you like a lager type beer then this is the best.
For all others Hobgoblin Heavy.
And for afters… a hang over !
