How about a chilled Galician Albarino (tilde on the "n")?

It was smoked but uncooked, the strangest thing ever mate, but oh my god, my mouth was doing somersaults!!

The owner suggested we had the white Rioja with it and he wasn't wrong.

in fact so infinitely drinkable there's none left in the fridge & I had to just fish an empty out of my recycling box to check the spelling

Hi ya, can't go wrong with homemade sangria, you can it make exactly how you like it, trouble is it is different each time, cos after drinking it you can't remember what quantities of whatever you put into it!! Good innit!
Also people are quite gullible when they think of sangria on a hot sunny day with good company, music and the sun, they automatically think it will be very much alcoholic, therefore psychological sangria is the cheapest as it has no alcohol, but the effects are the same, very funny to watch.

psychological sangria, that's a good one!
Sangria made with a cognac kick is lethal, for me anyways...

Yep, really good albarino. Might want to try lagar de cervera if you can't get hold of martin codax.

Thanks, Lochy. I'll write down these names; however, if the price is more than 10 euros, my taste buds go on strike!
Do you not miss a Laphroaig?

By 10 euros I presume you mean a case.
