Split Rock Sauvignon Blanc
Nelson, New Zealand, 13% abv
Was £12.99 Now £10.99

Cooling sea breezes and abundant sunshine ensure vivacious, ripe fruit in this appetising white. Split Rock is a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, packed with lemon and tropical fruit flavours. It slips down a treat on its own and perfectly partners dishes such as spicy prawns, grilled chicken or creamy pasta.

 

Laithwaite's Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Bordeaux, France 12% abv
£11.49

A deliciously appetising white, with a perfect balance of grassy freshness, lemon and light tropical fruit and terrific zip. As equally at home as a glass on its own as it is with fish, salads or spicy noodles.

 

Charles Back Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Darling, South Africa 13.5%
Was £12.49 Now £10.49.

Voted second most influential person in SA's wine industry after Nelson Mandela, Charles Back is expert in matching vines to terroir. This classic Sauvignon is from the Atlantic influenced Darling region, so is ripe with brilliant, crisp, lemony zip.

 

Don Cayetano Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Central Valley, Chile 12%
£8.99

This is a crisp, minerally, lime fresh white from the Luis Felipe Edwards estate, four-time winner of the 'Chilean Winery of the Year' award. With tropical kiwi and guava fruit flavours and plenty of lively citrus freshness, it's the perfect Summer sipper!                               

 

Bon Courage Colombard 2017
Robertson, South Africa 12.5%
£9.49

If you're looking for a 'stand by' white to keep in your fridge, you can't go wrong with this. Fresh, lifted and bursting with citrus character, it's a mouth-watering Sauvignon alternative if you're looking for something a bit different.

 

Petticoat White Zinfandel 2017
California, USA 11.5% abv
£8.99

If you're a rosé fan susceptible to the charms of fruity New World wines, Petticoat is a sure-fire hit. It's made from California's 'original Zin' (Zinfandel), a grape that produces dark, brooding, powerful reds, but also this cheeky, fresh pink. Perfect for sipping in the garden

 

Cabalié 2018
Languedoc, France 13% abv
£10.99

A mouth filling, richly spiced red with an illustrious, medal winning history. It's a Grenache charged red from very old Roussillon vines, so has gorgeous, spicy, berry fruit in abundance.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Corsiero Nero 2017
Puglia, Italy 13.5% abv
£9.99

A rare taste of Nero di Troia, one of Puglia's finest grapes. Rich and velvety with intense black fruit and spice flavours. Rich and warming Corsiero is perfect with pasta or hearty meat dishes.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Lobo e Falcão
Tejo, Portugal 14% abv
£10.99

A blend of Shiraz and Portuguese native grapes, it's very supple and smooth with ripe, red and black berry flavours and spicy oaky notes. Smooth as velvet, Lobo goes with nearly all types of stews and red meat dishes.

 

The Black Stump Shiraz Durif 2018
South Eastern Australia 14% abv
£10.99

A skilful blend of Shiraz and native Aussie grape, Durif. It's bold and smooth with black fruit flavour, dark chocolate and a liquorice tang. Smooth enough to drink on its own and great with spare ribs, steak or kebabs.

 

The Red Sedan Cabernet Shiraz 2016
South Australia 14% abv
£11.99

Cabernet and Shiraz grapes were selected from top South Australian vineyards, then fermented in small vats with regular plunging of the grape skins to extract maximum colour and flavour. Gentle ageing in oak has resulted in luscious berry fruit with underlying tones of creamy vanilla and spice. A tasty accompaniment to shepherd's pie, lamb or steak.
