Costly Vinegar

I was in Tesco's today, buying a few staples, viz. bread and milk; and spotted some plonk, a 2006 Cabernet Merlot from south Australia, 13.5% proof. It was reduced from nine pounds something to £4.99.

That's hardly surprising. They must have had difficulty shifting it. It's like ruddy vinegar. I shan't be buying it again.

We plopped a saccharin tablet into each glass and that has made it more palatable, at least.

Had I known, I wouldn't have paid 49p for it. :-)
