Casa Del Colores Cabernet Sauvignon, Chile, £6.70, M&S

A Cabernet Sauvignon crafted from grapes grown in Chile’s sunny Central Valley, where the grapes are ripened to fresh and fruity perfection. If you love a hint of oak and a concentrated red, this is the wine for you. Bold with expressive blackberry and blackcurrant aromas, a forest floor of fruits take flight onto the palate, supported by soft, round tannins and lingering hint of blackberry on the finish. Highly recommend this one...

Tesco Finest Torrentes 2022, Salta, Argentina, £8, Tesco

A floral-edged white to have on your radar, Torrentes may not be in the top 10 of best-known grapes – but there’s lots to love about the variety’s aromatic intensity, and it’s fast becoming Argentina’s signature white. Fragrant and fruity, this is a really nice example with ample flavours of lychee and orange peel, balanced by crisp citrus fruit and refreshing acidity. Try it and see for yourself – you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
