BARGAIN OF THE WEEK

Castillo de Monterey Godello 2016, £7.50 (normally £9.50), M&S

Put some tropical fruit into your glass with a splash of this, made from the Godello grape grown in the Galicia region in north-west Spain, bordering Portugal. It’s so fresh and ripe it adds instant zip.

ROSE WINE 

Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc Rosé, £9.99, Waitrose

It’s New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, but not as we know it. A dollop of Merlot from the North Island’s Hawkes Bay region has been added to Marlborough Sauvignon, giving it a touch of pink colour. Too good to save until the sun comes out.

Food pairing: Crab linguine.

RED WINE 

Tesco Finest Barossa Shiraz 2016, £10

This wine, from one of Australia’s oldest wine regions, is deliciously rich and full-bodied, packed with juicy black fruit flavours and black pepper. Best with food or a box set!

Food pairing: Bangers and mash.

SPARKLING WINE 

Veuve Monsigny Champagne Brut NV, £10.99, Aldi

This champagne is great value, has real toasty character and lots of fresh, light, citrus fruit flavours. It is worth stocking up on if you’ve got a celebration on the horizon — like getting to the end of dry January.

Food pairing: Crisps and dips.
