Porrais Reserva 2017 (Simon's Wine of the Month)
Douro, Portugal 13% abv
Was £12.99 - Now £10.99

A delicious, crisp, stony white from the high sloping vineyards of Portugal's Douro Valley, famously home to deep rich reds and magnificent Ports. With its spicy peach and zingy lemon curd flavours, Porrais Reserva shows that the Douro is about much more than just port these days, the region's whites offer superb complexity and richness at very reasonable prices.

 

Domaine du Mas Ensoliellé 2018
Provence, France 13% abv
£10.99

This is a tasty new find from a small cellar in Aix en Provence and is made from Provence's finest varieties for elegant rosé, Grenache and Syrah. This pretty pink is crafted from hand picked grapes, harvested in the cool of the night. Subtle berry fruit with a classic savoury edge and bright lemony zip - this wine is as delightful on its own as it is with seafood or lighter vegetarian dishes.

 

Gran López Garnacha Rosado 2017
Campo de Borja, Spain 13.5% abv
£9.99

Spain may be best known for its oaky reds, but it'd be foolish to overlook its raft of delicious bright berry rosés. Garnacha is the mainstay grape, one that performs brilliantly in Campo de Borja. Using the free run juice of the hand picked grapes, and with up to six weeks' lees-stirring, this terrific pink is creamy yet fresh. Serve well chilled, on its own or serve with Mediterranean style dishes.

 

Un Vent du Folie 2017
Côtes Catalanes, France 14% abv
Was £14.99 - Now £10.99

A powerful, velvety, barrique-aged red using old-vine Grenache from arid Roussillon soils. Creator of this lusciously dense, blackberry spice wine is grower and winemaker Jean-Charles Duran. It's velvety and mouthfilling with kirsch, wild herbs, damson and spicy oak flavours. It's a powerful red, best decanted an hour beforehand. Enjoy with hearty meat dishes.

 

Vat 16 2017
Coastal Region, South Africa 16% abv
£12.99

At 16% Vol the wine's name speaks for itself. It certainly provides a warming, supple mouthful of fruit whenever you might need one! It's a special wine that winemaker Gerhardt Swart usually reserves as a blending component for his Flagstone range of wines. With 16%, you could imagine it would add some heft, but because it's grown at high altitude, the fruit has a lovely edge of freshness too.
