There are a few stunners out there at the moment.Ahead of everyone is Waitrose with a superb Spanish producer called El Guia. Both the red and rose are lovely and a steal at £3-99. The Waitrose Barossa shiraz , made by the sublime St Hallett winery , is on promotion now for £7-49. It is massive and long and alcoholic but tasty.
Marks and Spencer is generally a disappointment but their French froglet red and rose are not expensive (about £6) and if you buy any 6 bottles of wine before september 3rd you get a useful 25% discount.I also rate their Macon Uchizy , a luscious white.
Tesco finest Cote Du Rhone is fabulous and under £8.If you like fizz then some stores stock Francois Dubois which until recently was over £30 but i got one last week for £14-99. It is as good as Bollinger and £5 cheaper than Tesco own label which is brilliant too but many shy away from a Tesco badged bottle.
