A red to go with your red nose

LETTER OF THE DAY: Underlying the housing crisis is the rocketing price of building land

Have your say

Tomorrow is Comic Relief, an opportunity to sit in a bath of baked beans or do something else crazy.

But how about just watching the antics on TV with a glass of ‘Wine Relief’ wine?

Several retailers are offering a selection of ‘Wine Relief’ wines that will all contribute 10 per cent of the sale price to Comic Relief. It couldn’t be easier or more comfortable!

There are some really good wines in the mix. I love Australian Riesling and Knappstein Hand Picked Riesling 2010, Clare Valley (Majestic £8.99) is a lovely example. M’Hudi Merlot 2008, Elim (M&S £7.99) is good honest, easy drinking South African red with red fruits – to go with a red nose.

Whither Hills Pinot Gris 2010, Marlborough

Hints of honeysuckle and apricots, just off dry and would work really well with a chicken stir fry.
