A couple of Fridays ago I tweeted an *extra Friday night tip*, on top of my usual daily tip for mums and dads, which said when you choose wine, make sure you go for ones with a screwcap because they’re easy to open one-handed – just grip the bottle between your knees. Which quite a few parents seem to have identified with (thanks for the comments!)…
Co-blogger Helen McGinn is an ex-supermarket wine buyer and wine guru (check out her brilliant blog www.knackeredmotherswineclub.com where she recommends one great red and one very slurpable white every week plus shares insights on her life as a knackered mother) and she’s kindly offered to share her favourite screwcap wines with me to share with you every Friday. Hurrah!
So, without further ado, this Friday’s screwcap wine is:
Waitrose New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, £6.99 on offer (normally £9.49) and available here. This one is made for Waitrose by renowned winery Villa Maria, so it’s a great wine but with an own label on it. Gorgeous, fresh lime-filled fruit flavours, perfect pre-prandial drinking, so buy some posh crisps to go with it. (Failing that a mini breadstick would just about do it.)
