Vina Albali 2009 Airen – Felix Solis

Colour: Lightly toasted straw.
Smell: Sub tropical fruit.
Taste: Lightly fruited, smooth with that hint of fermented grape to finish, a fresh wine.

What they say on the bottle: Bursting with fresh fruity flavours and bright citrus aromas.

Verdict: Well those bursting fruity flavours are a little subtle for my palate and the citrus aroma is lost on me. Still a good wine for £3.34 (Tesco 3 for £10).This Spanish wine will be a regular visitor to this kitchen.
Well what can I say, two birthdays in one day and England (Rugby) beat Australia down under, the first time in 7 years. No, we will not gloat, but a little reminder to all those who follow proper sport, we have the Ashes coming up and a one day international against Australia on Tuesday. May the best team triumph and I wish those down under an exciting Ashes Series. The less said the better.
Mika from the Middle Smiths, the Princess Royal, is very eager to see the drawing from Lily Florence, depicting the family of Middle Smiths from the Vale of Mretoria.
Celen from Cookydale has indicated that she will review this wine as an independent observer. I can only hope my review lives up to her exacting standards.
