You can now save an impressive 25 per cent on this bottle that’s been praised for its accessibility. It’s a medium-bodied wine from the Castilla-La Mancha region in Spain and was created with meat and wine lovers in mind. Taste-wise, there’s hints of blackberry, plume and strawberry with traces of vanilla and cacao. While it’s mostly created to pair well with beef, fans of the wine have pointed out it’s also a great match for pasta, pizza and spicy dishes. We’re no stranger to the brand, as its malbec rosé made an appearance in our best malbec wines round-up.

With a third slashed off the price of a case of six, the value for money on this bottle just got a lot better. Winemaker Anselmo Martini sources grapes from hillside vinyards in Italy’s Veneto region. The dry white wine with citrus blossoms and pear aromas reveals delicate hints of lemon, almond and green olive upon tasting. It pairs well with fish and chicken dishes, as well as classic risotto recipes. As per instructions, you should consume this wine within twelve months, but we doubt you could withstand the temptation that long anyway.

Just the colour of this rosé is already promising, giving it a refreshing look. It’s made with grapes grown in the Peloponnese region in Greece and has a vibrant, crisp finish. A fruity, yet dry wine with flavours of citrus, lychee and rose petals. Enjoy it chilled on its own as an aperitif or serve with seafood, salads or charcuterie (salty cheeses in particular).

This winery was founded in 1961 and is today considered one of New Zealand’s leading winemakers. The fruit for this wine was sourced in the Malborough region, where the days are long and sunny and the nights cool and crisp, which leads to a long ripening season. This sauvignon blanc has rich gooseberry, lime and tropical fruit flavours. It goes well with oysters and fine seafood and thanks to Morrisons you can now save almost 25 per cent on your next bottle.

At a little over £20 per bottle, it’s probably one for a more special occasion rather than your new go-to table wine. The mix of grenache, syrah and mourvèdre grapes makes it an expressive wine, and it’s scored high everywhere we’ve seen it. It’s a bold, full-bodied red with dark fruit flavours and oaky hints that will probably only get better over the years. Pair it with lamb for the full experience. If it’s on your list to try, the 20 per cent discount makes this a great time to snap up a bottle.

Another gem from France, this Provence pink is a bit of a splurge, but you can now save 25 per cent when you buy a case of six at Majestic. Sacha Lichine took over the Château d’Esclans in 2006 and introduced groundbreaking techniques. This rosé is a fresh wine with a smooth finish, and notes of apple, grapefruit and peach. It would pair well with salmon, or can be enjoyed on its own.
