TIM!!! I'm disappointed in the Don Darias! If you have an Asda near you and you want a bottle of cheap n good red, try the Asda Crianza at 2.96 a bottle!

fav reds are...

Also from ASDA is their Argentinian Red - I learned to like red wine with this one!!

I think I got a bit of a bargain last week. Bought 6 bottles of Koonunga Hill Chardonnay and 6 of Rawsons Retreat Shiraz / Cabernet at 4.49 a bottle. Unfortunately (?) needed to buy 12 bottles as it was from Majestic Wines. However also splashed out on a rather nice bottle of Chassagne Montrachet at a price that I didn't think I'd ever go for... don't ask...

Good value at the moment is a South African Red at Sainsbury's for about 4.49 (I think).

Mostly I like the Ausralian Reds although Chilean is pretty good too. I'm not all that great on subtlety!!

If you like your red wine dry, try some German wine like those made from the dark red Dornfelder grape (if you can find any over there that is) or semi-dry Spaetburgunder. Suuuuuuper!

While I was out in Ox I fell in with a bad lot and we drank a fair quantity of the red stuff.
Long Flat red - their cheep sh*te was about £1.30 a bottle,( not too bad) and some stuff from the Barossa at £5.00 was simply out of this or any other world.. and NO HANGOVER!!!!

One that's v. v. v. v. v. bad for giving you a hangover is Banrock Station - I think it's Australian (I am 110% sure that the amount I drank had absolutely nothiging to do wth the hangover...)

Jon - Rosemounts are on offer in some shops at the moment. Excellent wine.

I forgot to say I felt like a real alky this morning as I was in ASDA buying a bottle of red at 8am (other half is offshore so I thought I'd make sure we had enough in for when/if he comes home)
It's amazing how this thread started as childrens sweets and has developed onto adults "sweeties"
