We have been loving ASDA’s Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon, but this is possibly even more gorgeous: The Chilean Merlot.

Again, it is under four quids English money-pounds, but it is slurplicious!  It also has a weird label —  a couple of buses are drawn on in cream and red. It is more spicy that the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, but equally wonderful. Loving the Merlot!

Oh my! This is so delicious! By the way, some say mer’lott — others say Mer’low — hey as long as you get it, eh?

It is not on the ASDA website, (again), and it is also 12.5%vol/9.4 units/bottle.  Very drinkable on its own.
