Wine: A refreshing, light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc... with hints of peach, melon and citrus
McGuigan Reserve Shiraz, was £7, now £6 until Oct 27, Sainsbury's
This Reserve Shiraz is a complex wine, with red berry aromas. Gentle oak ageing complements the fruit flavours adding subtle spice. Goes well with most foods and holds its own with strong flavours... but equally good to drink on its own.
Tesco Finest Chablis 2019, £13, Tesco
A bright Burgundy and model of unoaked Chardonnay, this citrus scented Chablis has the all-important stony minerality (derived from the mineral-rich, chalky soil) we look for, with citrus and apple flavours backed by subtle acidity. Stylish with a persistent finish, it's one for oysters and shellfish.
