A few 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. And so Friday’s Screwcap Wine was born…
Award-winning blogger Helen McGinn is an ex-supermarket wine buyer and all-round 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!
Helen says, “This Friday’s screwcap wine is Villa Maria Private Bin Riesling 2011, Marlborough, Majestic £9.49 (or £7.59 if you buy 2). Made by one of the most dependable and quality-driven wine producers in New Zealand. It comes with a big dollop of lime, capable of kicking even the coldest tastebuds into action. Put with a coriander-flecked Thai curry, and thank me afterwards.”
