Most Wanted Albariño 2015 12.5%
Sainsbury’s £8.00 (25% when you buy 6) or £7 at Love Wine. Also at Co-op and Bargain Booze.
Peachy aromas, quite textured in the mouth but with a real vibrant zippiness about it. From Galicia known as ‘green Spain’ in the north-west, the small region quality of Rias Baixas produces world-class whites.
Food match: olives, fish and salads as you’d expect but would also work well with light spicy dishes.
Dandelion Vineyards Lion’s Tooth of McLaren Vale 2014
Loki Wine £12.99 (Love Wine show price £11.49)
Aussie Shiraz at its juicy best. A hint of Riesling adds pretty aromas and tones down the Shiraz beast in the mouth. This is massively aromatic – cherries, ripe blackberries and spice. Then it’s opulent, larger than life, rich and lush on the palate. Big and bold yet velvety smooth and soft too.
Food match: Chili Con Carne, Moroccan Lamb
