Cleanskin Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Adelaide Hills, Australia 11% abv
£10.99 (Rrp £13.99)

When it comes to mouthwatering Aussie Sauvignon, few regions compare to the Adelaide Hills. They are home to Australia's "winemaking royalty". You'll notice it's a 'cleanskin' - in other words the estate did not put their own label on the bottle. Why? Because they sold a few cases at well below the going rate (to shift stock) and they wouldn't want regular customers finding out. So bag yourself a bargain.

 

Brigando Rosé 2017
Lisbon, Portugal 11.5% abv
£8.49

For fans of top quality wines offering great value for money, Portugal is a happy hunting ground. This fresh fruity pink is from one of the top names in Portuguese wine, José Neiva.  In this mouthwatering pink he uses ripe, juicy Touriga Nacional (the same grape used for making Port) for its unmatchable summer fruit character.

Perfect for picnics, with cold meats, chicken, veggie kebabs and so much more.

 

Tenuta Fenice 2017
Sicily 13.5% abv
£9.99

This is a sumptuously rich, blackberry and spice red using Sicily's prized Nero d'Avola. Not only that, it's from one of the island's highest, oldest vineyards.

Neglected since the earthquake of 1968, it's been lovingly restored and grows top grapes. Velvety and dense with vibrant cherry and berry and rich spice it's a wine that goes well with rich pasta dishes.

 

Grand Réserve de Gassac 2016
Pays d'Herault, France 13.5% abv
£10.49

Made with a blend of Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot and Grenache grown in the tiny village of Villeveyrac in the South of France. The soil is so well drained that the vine roots must grow deep down to find nourishment and moisture, promoting unique aromas and flavours in the grapes. The wine is luscious, with ripe blackberry flavours and a deep chocolate earthiness. Perfect with garlicky roast lamb or hearty casseroles.
