    in my quest for a cheap portable drink..................i plumbed for a wine from chile...Isle Negra...a Merlot

    it was £5.50 on special offer from the local spa..........

    poured it ...nice coulour.................gave it a sniff..............my god it was awful...it was fausty...germ riddern...bacteria infected....and to all intents and purposes smelt like a "wet terrier with a dirty bottom"

    it drank badley...was insiped...and really it didnt taste like wine........

    this one needs to be steered clear of.............(even at £5.50p)

    So after you smelt it and it was "awful" you drank it?

    Why did you not take it back for a refund?

    Get yourself into Aldi for a bottle of Kooliburra Australia Shiraz, £3.99, let it warm and breathe, no kiss of life, and then tell me l'm wrong.

    It's good wine at any price.

    Try Budgen's at Acle , they seem to have a nice selection of wines , I dont drink wine so I cant recommend any. I stick to Orange Lucozade , nice flavour , build your energy levels up , no hang over and only a pound a bottle , go on try some:good:

    In our quest to help you, your nearest Aldi is in Plumstead road Norwich, less than 10 miles from Lingwoods finest wet terrier shopping mall.

    It was the 'portable' bit that made me grin....I put it down to a thick finger, we all do it.  Potable I think you meant.  I do appreciate your wine reports though, keep 'em coming.

    I tend to buy from my local village shop/post office, some very drinkable Aussie stuff for a fiver a bottle if you buy two and I only have to drive 4 miles return.  He also does some good Prosecco as well at £7 a bottle ....a touch of sloe gin in the bottom of the glass first.  Like to keep my local shop in business.

    Many years ago I drove to a mates for a poker night and spent the evening drinking lucozade sport.  Had a splitting headache by midnight, would have felt better knocking back booze!

    Are you sure you didn't have anything in it to liven it up a bit :hmm::lol: , I must be hooked on it , I can drink a good half a bottle on a shoot day and still drive about with no ill effects :good:

    I think you must have been unlucky with that particular bottle, Simon.

    Poor storage in the shop? Bad batch?

    I've drunk that brand in the past - easy drinking and unmemorable, perhaps, but not actually bad.

    I've found most cheap Chilean wines to be OK, well certainly compared to cheap European or Australian wines, As I say, easy drinking and unmemorable.
