My favourite Argentinian Malbec has gone up in price from 6 to 7.50

https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-G...ucts/264534413

Because of our new booze tax. This is one of my favourite cheapish wines. I drink half with my tea then save the rest for the next day.

Don't think it has anything to do with the booze tax as its that price here

Well, it was 6, perhaps that was a promotion - it probably has around 13 units of alcohol in it. I have noticed in the small shop that's below me that they have bottles of strong cider for 8...I suspect most of them will go unsold. What will the street drinkers drink now?

Malbec is lovely and you'll surely know that Mendoza is some of the best.

Pop down to your local Majestic. They have a wide range of Malbecs to choose from.

You can get this one:

Santa Ana Malbec 2017 Mendoza

for 5.99 a bottle if you buy 6 or more.

With your health problems, should you be drinking it anyway?

I drink rarely, perhaps every 2 weeks I'll have a bottle of wine over 2 days. I've got to have some indulgences.

Rather sorry I didn't include one in my online grocery shop.

The shop below me sells wine, but it's mostly rubbish and any good wine he does have is way overpriced.

That one looks good - I'll keep an eye out for it.

When I was having treatment for cancer, I was told to avoid alcohol. It certainly doesn't help when they are putting poison into you body to destroy the cancer cells.... and you have said that you have previously had problems with drinking alcohol.
