from France. It is a thoroughly moreish and juicy wine with bright apricots, waxy lemon and a gorgeous, subtle whiff of dried herbs and verbena. It is a rather obscure grape variety but well worth stepping off piste for. We thought it was worth £9.00 but it is just £8.00

Tesco are also making an appearance with their lip-smackinly lovely Tesco Finest Cotes de Gascogne 2012 from France
. We have long been proponents of this fabulous region in the South West of France. One of the main reasons for their success is the magic of their local grape Gros Manseng which adds a wonderful zingy caramelised pineapple note to the wine giving it both zip and richness. This example is blended with a touch of lovely grassy Sauvignon Blanc. We thought it was worth £7.00 but at £6.00
it really will put a smile on your face. Click here to buy
Sneaking a little rosé into the mix, the Monferrato Chiaretto Rosé 2014 from Northern Italy
is a wonderful fresh, dry, crunchy, cranberry filled wine which really comes into its own with food such as salami, Iberico ham or cold turkey and cranberry sauce. We thought it was a really impressive wine worth £8, but at £7.50 M&S
are making sure it is really good value. Click here to buy
