Marks & Spencer Mineralstein Riesling 2014 £10.00 12%
A crisp, refreshing and moreish white, not at all in the style of the German wines your Nan drank back in the day. This is a modern mouth-tingling joy; heady floral aromas, yet dry and taut, lively and zingy.
Food match: Sushi, smoked fish and Thai food.
ASDA Extra Special El Meson Rioja Gran Reserva 2010 £9.98 13.5%
Deliciously smooth, oaky, chocolatey, intensely black-fruit-and-caramelly – huge amounts of punch for your pound (i.e. great value).
Food match: red meats, Mushroom Stroganoff
AA Badenhorst Secateurs Rosé 2015 SWIG £11.50 12.5%
Described by Swig as ‘bouncy’ – not sure what that means – but it will make you feel uplifted when you drink it! Enticing aromatically, reminiscent of English strawberry and cherries, dry and dynamic in the mouth with a complexity unusual in a rosé.
Food match: Bouillabaisse, BBQs
