Sick of Sauvignon Blanc? Aldi’s wine expert and Mistress of Wine, Sam Caporn, suggests fans of the popular white should try something new this summer; Aldi’s Baron Amarillo Rueda Verdejo (£5.29, 75cl).
Scooping a BRONZE medal accolade from this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards1, Sam explains why this Spanish delight is likened to Sauvignon Blanc and why it is the new shining star of the wine world:
“Sometimes we can find ourselves in a wine rut, reaching for the same bottle again and again. For anyone looking to branch out this summer, Verdejo is a great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc as they have a lot of characteristics in common.
“It’s one of Spain’s most planted grape varieties, it offers citrussy notes along with lime and grapefruit, balanced by mouth-watering juicy acidity.
“It pairs beautifully with chicken, fish, seafood and salad, making it the ideal summer go-to. If you’re getting tired of the same old Sauvignon Blanc, give Aldi’s Verdejo a chance – it has the flavour and at just over a fiver it’s great value. You won’t be disappointed!”
The wine was also reviewed and approved by the supermarket’s panel of Wine Club members, appointed following a nationwide hunt for thirty budding wine enthusiasts to trial, test and review Aldi’s range of delicious wines.
The Baron Amarillo Rueda Verdejo was a firm favourite across the panel, with one member calling it out as “one to watch” describing it as “sweet but dry with an amazing lightness that is unexpected!”
Another described it as, “the perfect compromise between Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio!”
Aldi’s Baron Amarillo Rueda Verdejo (£5.29, 75cl) is available in stores and via Click & Collect now.
