Wine of the Week
Workhorse Chenin 2011, South Africa (M&S, £7.99) Think peachy, think honey, think dazzling and revel in this perfect summertime wine.
House Pinot Noir NV, Romania (Sainsbury’s, £4.49) A light cherry-ish red to pair with grilled tuna, veg or mildly spiced burgers – or simply to sip on its own.
La Umbra Merlot 2010/11, Romania (Waitrose, £6.49) Cracking value with enough structure for a brilliant barbecue all-rounder.
Errazuriz The Blend Limited Edition 2008, Chile (Waitrose, £17.99) This is posh Chilean wine that’s full of deep flavour and immense for pairing with the big red meats of your Barbecue Royale.
Marsanne 2011, France (Asda, £4.00) An easy-drinking peachy white with a soft texture and plenty of refreshment.
