A box of some of our greatest (value) hits as picked by local wine expert Helen McGinn, author of The Knackered Mother’s Wine Guide! From dry whites to robust reds, this mixed six is guaranteed to keep you properly entertained.
Domaine Gueguen Bourgogone Aligote 2018
The Aligoté grape is behind this lovely, perfectly crisp dry white Burgundy. Add a dash of crème de cassis and you’ve got yourself a Kir.
Mayfly Sauvignon Blanc 2019
If you like your Marlborough Sauvignons with more passion fruit than gooseberry, this is a great catch (sorry, couldn’t resist). Fridge door banker.
Funkstille Gruner Veltliner 2019
Meaning ‘radio silence’, take a moment to sit with a glass of this gorgeous Grüner Veltliner from Austria in hand. A real peach.
Felicette Grenache Rouge 2018
I swear it’s not just the cats in spacesuits on the label that makes me love this earthy southern French red so much. OK, a bit. Dangerously moreish.
Carpazo Sangiovese Toscana 2018
Made from the grape behind Chianti, this one’s full of bright cherry fruits with plenty of freshness. Just add a plate of tomato sauce-drenched pasta.
Man Meets Mountain Malbec 2018
This was in our last Christmas case but I think this one’s for life, not just for Christmas. Ripe, juicy and loaded with bramble fruit flavours.
