Dark Horse Sauvignon Blanc

Dark Horse Sauvignon Blanc… I always judge a book by it’s cover (I’m a designer, that’s what we do) so generally I’m drawn to wine with the prettiest label. Not normally a white wine drinker, I was extra bamboozled to say the least, I mean what’s the difference between a Sancerre and Riesling, a Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc? Oh sod it, I know it’s warm out but maybe I’ll just get red, better the devil you know. I put the joke bottle of Lambrini down I’d picked up to scare Jamie and an interesting label caught my eye. A sleek label with a clever logo that incorporated a wine glass into the silhouette of a horse. SOLD!
“I often find Sauvignon Blanc a bit too floral” said Jamie as he carefully inspected the bottle. “Willing to give it a got though”. So we bought it, drank it and loved it.
It was light, zesty and smooth which ticked a lot of boxes and was most importantly very easy drinking. So much so in fact, we finished the bottle and had to go and buy another. Well it was Saturday night (see pictures below Jamie took of me, they’re appallingly bad but we had drunk 2 bottles of wine.)
So if you’re off to a barbecue this summer and need of a bit of crowd pleaser, then Dark Horse is your man… Or horse. Dark Horse Sauvignon Blanc 75cl, £8.50 available at Sainsbury’s and Ocado.
Oh and please always drink responsibly (unlike me).

Piccini Chianti £6


Piccini Chianti £6… 
I love red wine but it doesn’t like me very much but I don’t care, I still drink it at every available opportunity (so most evenings). What? I have a stressful job, don’t judge me!
Anyway, I don’t claim to know much about wine but I do know what I like and that’s a nice easy drinking red with a smooth finish and at £6 this Chianti always makes its way into my shopping basket. So, if you’re anything like me and spend far too long in the wine isle bamboozled, then buy this crowd pleaser instead of picking the bottle with the prettiest label (don’t worry I do that too).
Piccini Chianti 75cl £6. Available at Sainsbury’s, Tesco & Morrisons
