'The Straw Hat' Rose wine is jolly decent. Four bottles of that last night and I was well happy.

Hats off to Aldi.

This one is under £13. Extraordinary and jolly good.

Aldi's also sell Clarke's bourbon...mighty fine liquor.
And their Steinhauser lager washes it down nicely.

Working my way through a lovely bottle of Echo Falls Pinot Grigio Rose. Yum! Just right with BBQ pringles - real class!
I've got some chloroform and handcuffs, just for you.

Never tried it. Sweet tasting or dry ?

If it's Echo Falls, I presume it's on the sweeter side.

I prefer the drier Pinot Grigio Rose. The one (sorry two) I had in the pub last night was wonderful. I think the Zinfandel brand.

Problem with the sweeter ones, they go down far too easily and tempting to crack open another bottle...

I have no issue with that approach to life as long as it does not involve brandy or whiskey.
