I have a small personal success to toast and I would really like your advice.
I need to put together a case of around 6 wines, with an average price £10-£12 to drink at home. While I am keen to explore new tastes, I am actually a TERRIBLE shopper when there are too many options, and honestly never know where to start (that applies to many things, and one reason I hate buying gifts).
I usually rely on staff or press tastings to give me ideas, but I’ve not been to any for ages. The BBQ thread was a great inspiration, but the weather has since changed and I’m feeling a bit more autumnal already.
If you could suggest a wine for me to buy, what would it be? I will put the final list together in this post, then after buying it, will reply with thoughts on each wine as I drink it. Feel free to buy your own case of course!
Can you help?
So, here is the list. Thank you all SO much for your suggestions. I’ve squeaked in just below my maximum budget of £72 (isn’t that ALWAYS the way??), so can’t be bad. I’ve kept the other wines as wishlist items for the future too, but my wife is less of a fan of off-dry Riesling than I am, so those will be for me at some stage.
I will try to remember to post wine reviews of each of these wines to the site to share the enjoyment
