Helen McGinn tried a Tesco Finest Prosecco Valdobbiadene
Bargain of the week
Tesco Finest Prosecco Valdobbiadene, £8 (normally £10)
This is made from grapes grown in the smarter vineyards of the Prosecco region around the hills of Valdobbiadene and it’s delightful: light white peach and pear with a hint of lemon.
Adnams Bacchus 2018, £13.99, Adnams
An English white made for Suffolk brewers Adnams, this is a lovely Bacchus wine. The grape is widely grown across UK. Delicious and a touch floral, it’s packed with fresh grapefruit flavours.
Food pairing: Quiche.
Da Vida Garnacha, £8, Co-op
Rich, juicy red from Navarra in Spain (not far from Rioja), it’s made from the Garnacha grape. Stick this one in the fridge for up to an hour before drinking — chilling slightly will make the black cherry flavours pop.
Food pairing: Posh hot dogs.
Mirabeau Pret A Porter 25cl, £3.49, Waitrose
From the team behind the Provence wine brand Mirabeau, this is rosé-to-go. Each can holds a generous glass and a blend of Grenache, Syrah and a dollop of Merlot. It’s light and fresh with raspberry and cherry fruit.
Food pairing: Feta salad.
