John Wilson: Four great-value limited-edition wines from Aldi’s new line-up


Wines for the Weekend: Tempting bottles from Portugal, Australia and Lebanon

Last week I featured four French wines new to Aldi’s range. Today, four more bottles, this time from Portugal, Australia and Lebanon. All are very well-priced, especially the Lebanese wine. There are limited quantities of these wines, so you’ll need to move fast.

Alvarinho 2020, Mimo Moutinho, €8.99
Light and refreshing, with good intensity of flavour, rounded green-apple fruits and lemon zest, with a lively acidity. Drink solo or with grilled sardines.

Dão Touriga Nacional, Mimo Moutinho, €7.99
Rounded plum and dark-cherry fruits, a savoury touch and light tannins on the finish. Drink alongside grilled pork chops or maybe a vegetarian chilli.

Kooliburra Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Australia, €8.99
Rich and powerful, with ripe dark fruits overlaid with dark chocolate and a hint of eucalyptus. This calls for a grilled steak or a gourmet burger.

Lebanese Red 2019, Bekaa Valley, €10.99
Sweet, ripe red-cherry fruits with a touch of leather and spice, and light tannins on the finish. Pair it with a spicy lamb stew or Levantine braised chickpeas.
