Have your say

After the festive excesses, a few wines this week that won’t break the bank.

If it’s not sold out by the time you read this, Trizanne Signature Grenache Shiraz 2013, Swartland (£9.99 less 25 per cent while stocks last was one of my favourite under-£10 wines of 2014. It’s fantastic value. A Rhone-style red with dark fruits, a touch of spice and herbs with a fresh black cherry finish, it would be wonderful with a sausage casserole.

Muriel Reserva 2009, Rioja (The Co-operative £9.99 on offer at £6.66 until January 13) is aged in oak for 36 months. There are undoubtedly more interesting Rioja Reserva’s available, but this is great value with red fruits, vanilla and a mellow, savoury finish which would be perfect with roast lamb after a bracing January walk.


Les Jamelles Reserve Mourvèdre 2013, Vin de Pays d’Oc

Almost the perfect wine for January – hearty, warm and great value. Mourvèdre is a grape more often found in blends from the south of France, but here, standing by itself, it has a deep colour with plenty of dark blackberry fruit, herbs and a little spice. Try this with tomato pasta or slow-cooked hearty meat dishes.

The Co-operative: £7.49 on offer at £6.49 until January 13.
