6Most of the cheap stuff on the UK market nowadays seems to be the big brands that operate at the lower ends of the quality spectrum; Blossom Hill, Kumala etc. I am sure most of these find favour with someone, but I always presume that they sell rather more because of marketing budgets than on wine quality. So, I am always on the look out for honest and well made wines that can compete at low price levels. vineyards just outside RequenaIt seems that I found a bit of a winner recently – and it promises a great deal right from the start, with its modern packaging, screwcap and a Decanter World Wine Awards Silver Medal sticker.The only visual negative is that at first glance I assumed it was from Toro – one of the very best Spanish wine regions for good value – the design even resembles some Toro wines. I like Utiel-Requena, I was there a few months back and it is a beautiful place. Administratively it is part of Valencia, but geographically and historically the region is more like La Mancha – they don’t speak Valenciano and the area is a plateau quite unlike the coastal conditions. I really enjoyed visiting Requena itself, the town is very Spanish with no hint of the costas about it – and the prices of most things are cheap . It is surrounded by lovely countryside – mostly flat and covered in vines, but there are always hills in the distance and the landscape gets a bit more bumpy inland from Utiel.The quality of the modern wines was a revelation too and as a consequence they are now more widely seen on Spanish supermarket shelves as well as creeping onto the UK market.The Bobal grape is the traditional speciality here, but this wine is made from the much more famous and respected Tempranillo, which produces the great wines of Rioja as well as Ribera del Duero.2009 Toro Loco Tempranillo DO Utiel-Requena, SpainThere is nothing to dislike about this wine, unlike most at this sort of price it is not dilute, it is not over-extracted, it is not sweet, confected or jammy and at a modest 12.5% it is not over aclcoholic either.It is soft with minimal tannins, a tiny waft of spice and lots of gluggy blackberry fruit characters. I found it most agreeable with some sausages – 88/100 points.Available at £3.49 from Aldi – which must make it what Parker strangely calls ‘a value’ and what I call great value for money.I have reviewed the same producers excellent dry Bobal Rosé before, but for the 2009 vintage the have  revamped the packing to Toro Loco and lowered the price to just £3.49.These are amongst the very best cheap wines that I have tasted in a long time and I think they provide a much more pleasurable experience than most in their price bracket.I also travel widely, tasting wine and experiencing wine regions and wineries. From time to time I have things that I want to share with you. In these pages I will mention wines, wine events, trips that I make as well as details of restaurants and meals that I have enjoyed or anything about wine, food and travel that strikes me as interesting.

Even dry cleaning can produce some shrinkage. We recommend you test a 4" x 4" square of your new fabric if you are at all unsure how it will react to your chosen laundering method. If you always test the same sized square, you will be able to check the percentage of shrinkage.Fabric WeightVery Lightweight = 0 – 3.4 oz/yd²Lightweight = 3.5 – 5.9 oz/yd²Medium Weight = 6 – 7.9 oz/yd²Medium/Heavyweight = 8 – 9.9 oz/yd²Heavyweight = 10 – 11.9 oz/yd²Very Heavyweight = 12 – 25 oz/yd²Explore Fabric.comWe're here to helpDiscover Fabric.comSewing Center #MadeWithFabric
