Aldi Exquisite Collection Uco Valley Malbec 2011

There's only one way to describe this wine; and that's absolutely delicious. It's another Aldi bargain at just under £6. Their wine selection is really excellent and this is one of my favourites. It's actually quite expensive for Aldi, but you know you're getting your moneys worth. Pity they don't do something about their awful beer selection, as their wines are superb.

Much better to get one of these, than an average supermarket wine "on offer", often not a bargain at all but made artificially high so they can regularly put it on special.
It's smooth spicy, and blackcurrant notes are a real winner with me. I've also tried the Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in the same collection, but this one is superior.
Just go and buy it, it's a steal.
