An early start to the weekend and why not? I have never had a Zweigelt before but found this on the Aldi shelves, last night, for £7.99 and thought that I would give it a try.
Described on the bottle as having “Deep red fruit flavours, with aromas of redcurrant, bramble and plum, touches of vanilla, mocha and floral violets and a long dry finish”, I am not sure that my description would stretch that far but it’s certainly a very gluggable wine. Quite forward on the redcurrant fruit but not overly sweet and there are enough tannins to provide some spice. Good value, I thought and a good start to the weekend.
