M&S have partnered with colouring book artist Daisy Fletcher, to create a wine label that's designed to be coloured in. Having poured yourself a glass of this fresh Sauvignon Blanc, with just the right measure of greenness and a lovely limey, tangy finish, the idea is to bring to life Fletcher's paradise and colour in the birds, flowers and insects.

A must for your autumn collection and for those who just love Rosé wine.
