Radio WM Recommendations

 La Garnacha 2014 Salvaje del Moncayo 13.5% Majestic £7.99 (mixed 6 price) and The Wine Society £7.75 This is a steal. Garnacha (or Grenache as it’s also known) has really lovely jammy aromas and flavours. This one also has a bracing freshness. The wild red fruitiness mingles perfectly with just a hint, but a very […]

Days of Summer Torres 2015 12%  £6.99 Co-op, £7.49 Majestic (6 bottle price) This is 100% Muscat. The unusual thing about Muscat is that it actually has hints of grapey aromas unlike almost all other varieties. It also smells enticingly of orange blossom, white peach and exotic fruits. It is light, just off dry, with […]

Majestic Moët 2006

Celebrate the sunshine with this bargain from Majestic. You have to buy a case of six but don’t worry if Champagne isn’t your daily tipple, it’ll keep for a few years. It has a rich, generous peachy and pastry flavour; the fizz is long and soft, the finish elegant and refined. It certainly stood out […]

Dryish Jan

For me to recommend a dry January is as likely as Donald Trump suggesting that the USA should have a gun amnesty. It’s not going to happen. My children refer to me as the opposite of the alcohol police. Before anyone complains to the NSPCC, my children are all over 18 and, of course, it goes without […]


Drink Pink

I am not alone. 11% of the wine we drink in this country is rosé. We spend around £3.3m on it. So quite a few of us must be pretty keen. Personally, I love rosé – a phrase you won’t find many wine professionals shouting from the roof tops – but with caveats. It shouldn’t […]
