At least until tomorrow night's cocktail club!
Mr Purple Teeth was cooking while I was teaching late and as there was a hefty whack of garlic involved, I reached for the cheapest wine on my rack.
Meet Lidl's Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (£5.99 from memory).
Until I met the Master of Wine responsible for the Lidl List (he happens to be a near neighbour), I'd shied away from our newish local store. But when economy is called for, Lidl is an interesting place to explore.
Coonawarra is world renowned as the best terroir for Cabernet Sauvignon in Australia and the terra rossa soil is said to be ideal for this grape. It was an easy wine to take a punt on. Mr Purple Teeth is a huge fan of Cabernet, but I don't often indulge him because it can be harsh and drying when young or cheap.
One cannot drink good St Juliens every day.
I'd very much expected to taste a glass then leave the rest to him, but I happy helped him polish off the bottle.
If you like Cabernet, it's worth a £6 punt.
