TOP 5 wines from BP

via Dawid Lipiec

Not everyone is aware that the BP station is a place where they also wine can be purchased. A non-trading Sunday is a major inconvenience for most Poles, for whom it is the only day off during the week. Fortunately, the solution to this problem are petrol stations where you can buy alcohol. In this article, we'll give you a hint about the best wines at the BP station and explain why you should buy them.

Buena Vista Blanco Semi Dulce

The first in our list is Buena Vista Blanco Semi Dulce, which is a white semi-sweet Spanish wine. The price is a very bargain indeed, as it costs just £18. The aroma is very simple, but at the same time it does not reject. You can sense hints of powdered candy, sweet peaches and citrus. The sugar, however, does not harmonise well with the acidity and the taste is not surprising. It should be added, however, that this is the cheapest item on the shelf and can be purchased 24/7.

Furmint Semi Sweet Henye 2013

Another semi-sweet white wine is also worth recommending, namely Furmint Semi Sweet Henye 2013. It is already a bit more expensive than its predecessor, as it costs almost 30 zlotys. Especially noteworthy is the fact that it is promoted with the name of Robert Makłowicz, who is very well known in Poland. Also noteworthy is the long ageing time in warehouses, as this is the 2013 vintage. Wine has an intense aroma and a golden colour. Notes of tropical, ripe fruit, quince come to the fore, followed by sweet flowers and honey. It is really very good and sweet, and the aroma makes a great impression and invites you to test it. It should also be mentioned that the acidity of the wine is properly marked, which works well with quite a lot of sugar. However, the taste of ripe citrus with a background of honey and quince is quite flat and it escapes from the mouth very quickly. However, it is fair to say that this is the only downside of this bottle. This does not change the fact that the whole is tasty, elegant and harmonious. This type of wine will go perfectly with a cheese board or cheesecake. Even with the petrol station mark-up, it is well worth the price. Wine selection at the BP station is huge, so everyone can find something for themselves without too much trouble.

Tarapaca Chardonnay 2018

The next wine on the list is the Tarapaca Chardonnay 2018, which is a dry white from Chile. Definitely pleasant and distinctive is the aroma of this wine. In the foreground here we have a wealth of fruity notes with citrus and also ripe peaches. A hint of buttered popcorn in the background also shines through, which is not often seen. It's fair to say that everything is at the right level here. The taste is soft and harmonious, with medium acidity. Tropical fruit, green apple peel and citrus can be sensed. This is a good quality wine that you can get at an affordable price.

Les Combeles Bordeaux

On the list of good wines of the filling stations could not miss Les Combeles Bordeaux. This is a dry red wine from France. Fans of this drink may also like the classic label with the "chateau" sketch. A very interesting aroma greets us at the outset, namely a hint of sweet melon and notes of lemon and grapefruit zest. Then a slightly grassy touch and a strongly marked minerality can be discerned. It is worth mentioning that the aroma is intense, characterful and very intriguing. The acidity is at the right level and the wine is not overly dry. The taste is citrusy and grassy, but unfortunately lingers in the mouth for a short time. There is a warming sensation in the oesophagus relatively quickly. The potential of the wine is immense and everything is balanced and fits together perfectly. It's safe to say that you won't buy anything better at this price at the station.

Campo Burgo Joven Blanco 2018

Another wine worth trying is Campo Burgo Joven Blanco 2018, which can be bought for £32.99. It has a very intense aroma that invites you to take the first sip. The aromas of citrus and green apple are fresh and clean. The first impression is very good and you can sense the aromatic background. The simple fruity taste is certainly not a drawback, as is the medium acidity. This is a really good table wine that would work perfectly for a Sunday. Last on our list of BP wines is Loess Gruner Veltliner 2016, which is by far the most expensive at £35.99. The high price makes our expectations higher as well. The aroma is not very intense, but certainly perceptible. Of the fruit, green apple and lemon zest can be mentioned, but it is the minerality that comes to the fore. The acidity is fresh and well marked, but the wine itself is not extremely dry. There is no denying that we were expecting something very different from cold Austria. The taste is very pleasant and balanced. At the beginning you can sense fresh citrus and an aftertaste of grapefruit peel. Certainly not an outstanding wine, but worth a try. It should also be added that the alcohol content is not high, at just 11.5%.
