so says wine. Why?
do you know where your children are?
it needs a good hour to breathe at least and sometimes is even better the day after opening.
i am guessing it's crappy wine that turns to vinegar on contact with air or alternatively they're just trying to get people to chuck half-bottles that are left the next day.
it's CAVA BRUT whatever that is
I actually do want this stuff to go flat
cos even if it's really really shit, it can be mixed with lemonade, and then even sainsburys basics red wine is very drinkable
Waitrose is the shit for wine. Anything non branded in there is always pretty ok. I've had one or two duff ones, but about the £4-5 mark you can't go wrong.
although i wouldn't keep wine open too long. you can get away with a day or two though, for sure.
the better quality the wine, the longer you can keep it open. all depends on how soft your palate is. experienced wine tasters would probably notice the taste between wine that had been open 30 seconds and wine that had been open 5 minutes.
the only thing that would matter is if it was somehow harmful or went out of date or something
you just need to look properly.
this probably means i know fuck all about wine, but then again, i've never been offered a glass of £40 wine, so who cares.
some pretty decent wine in the supermarket for a fiver. morrisons actually used to do a drinkable red for £3, dunno if they still do. Sainsburys had some bilge called Fontanelles or something for £2.62, probably not anymore, it was horrid but mindblowingly cheap.
morrisons own brand vermouth is probably the best value thing i can think of if you just want to get drunk and don't care about taste.
this stuff tastes so bad I'm actually outraged LOL
had a red and white drawing of a hedgehog on it.
and i told you flat cava would be horrid :p
I want it to go flat though, I can't drink fizzy stuff
You need gin and olives.
To drink white cider all you need is desperation.
I can see where you might be coming from.
but she's on a whole Island of Wrong when it comes to this one. AMIRITE? etc etc
safe option, but it's a breadwinner.
or am I wrong? Anyway, aren't you all married to your cousins or something?
And that only happens in Wroxall :)
all you need to do is wave the martini *near* the gin...
