Another weekend, another 25% off wine deal! This time it’s the turn of Waitrose wine offers and applies in Scotland if you buy online.
As ever, my advice is top up on your favourites and then splash out and spend what you would normally spend so you get wines that are normally out of your budget.
Go to www.waitrosecellar.com to pick up some tasty bargains!
Clearly, you know what you like best, but here are some of my recommendations for great value or just plain tasty wines…
Pujalet Pays de Gers £5.49 down to £4.11 (White Central Line). Zingy and fresh.
Viña Sol white £6.99 down to £5.25 (White Central). Your own ‘house’ wine.
Fief Guerin Muscadet £7.99 down to £5.99 (White Central). Summer seafood drinking.
Beblenheim Pinot Gris £9.99 down to £7.49 (Aromatic). Lovely aromatics for summer and spicy food.
Cuné Barrel Fermented Rioja £10.49 down to £7.86 (White Central). Creamy and richer for meatier dishes.
Springfield Estate Sauvignon Blanc £11.99 down to £8.99 (White Central). A fantastically, crisp and mean Sauvignon – less tropical than the NZ styles but really, very good.
Some of my real favourites look like they are out of stock online so here are two very different rosés.
Muga Rioja Rosado £9.99 down to £7.49 (Easy Loop). Big and gutsy, great for BBQs and tapas dishes.
Chene Bleu £17.99 down to £13.49 (Easy Loop). This is a lot for rosé and I wouldn’t spend the £17.99 but at £13.49 it’s a treat. Intense flavours with delicacy.
Les Nivieres Saumur £8.99 down to £6.74 (top of the Red Central). A lighter style red, perfect for picnics and lighter meals/cold meat platters.
Mont Gras Carmenere £8.99 down to £6.74 (Revelation). Big and ballsy, loads of fruit. Great for those wanting Malbec alternatives. Impossible to mention without the fact that it will match well with curry flavours, especially madras.
Henry Fessy Brouilly £11.99 down to £8.99 (Top of the red central line). Juicy and soft but not too sweet. Great with or without food.
Masi Campofiorin Rosso de Veronese £12.99 down to £9.74 (Rediscovery). A brilliant wine for Amazon lovers on a budget. Rich and round with loads of dark cherry and chocolate flavours.
Chateau Musar £21.99 down to £16.49 (Red Central). A Lebanese classic which will last forever. Buy now and give as a gift to a wine-loving dad for Father’s Day.
Valdo Oro Puro Prosecco £13.49 down to £10.11 (Fizz Line). A good quality Prosecco.
Cave de Lugny Blanc de Blancs £13.99 down to £10.49 (Traditional Method). Great value champagne alike. Just chardonnay so a bit smoother and fruitier than some.
Nyetimber Classic Cuvee £31.99 down to £23.99 (Traditional Method). OK, so this is a splash but it’s a great price. Having spent London Wine Week indulging in the £5 flights I remembered just how good this is. Really classy stuff!
