Once again Aldi has come up with the goods, as always an eclectic range of seasonal wines and, as always, tasting much dearer than they actually cost. Don’t be fooled by the amazingly keen prices, if you are you will be really missing out on a whole lot of wholly affordable pleasure. Enjoy the journey!”
