M&S Sabroso Malbec 2022, Argentina, £6.50, M&S
This intensely juicy red wine has hints of plum, violets and blackberry with silky smooth black fruit flavours. ‘Sabroso’ translates to tasty, and this smooth, moreish wine does what it says on the tin. It’s fragrant with delightful florals, blueberries and black cherry notes. This is an open and inviting red which cries out for a steak, or all types of grilled red meat, due to its lingering smooth finish – or simply pair it with anything you fancy.

New from Vina Sol, this is a fresh, Mediterranean take on Sauvignon Blanc. It is light, pleasant, fresh and silky, and makes for an excellent aperitif. It is silky, with a fine streak of fruit acidity and a dry elegant finish that pairs ideally as an aperitif or paired with rice dishes, seafood, or fish.
WINE OF THE WEEK
Piccini Bianco Toscana 2022, Italy, £8.75, Asda
If you’re fishing for a fresh, bright white, you’ve only got to look at the label to know this is the definition of a late summer wine to wash down with seafood. With lemony, floral notes, lively citrus and stone fruit flavours, it punches above its weight. The Italian way of living life with wine with its pleasing freshness – the perfect companion to grilled seafood.
