Do people actually like red wine or is it just something they say to make them sound more mature and sophisticated? As a long-term red wine hater, I would say the latter; I guess my palate just isn’t mature enough for things likes red wine, olives and strong cheese. I assumed this was the way thing would always be, that is until Aldi launched a red that even the biggest haters are guaranteed to like, and it even changed my mind. Seriously, what can’t Aldi do?
Introducing the Big Gun Spanish Red, a blend of Syrah, Tempranillo and Merlot grapes – if, like us, you don’t know what that means, it’s bold, sweet and fruity, red and doesn’t taste like crap. But seriously though, it really tasted good and I would definitely buy a bottle (or six), and for just £5.49 it would be rude not to.. The Big Gun Spanish Red launches on 18 March, but until then there are plenty of great wines to choose from. If you’re a wine aficionado or you just like a tipple, you need to hot foot it down to Aldi asap because their new-season wines are about to hit shelves and they’re all under £10.
