Current white in the fridge: Ara Pinot Gris, 2014
Price: £10.99 - Buy From Waitress Cellar
The Pinot Gris (also known as Pinot Grigio) grape is technically grey and the colour of the wine made from it ranges enormously. Fifty shades of Gris, if you like. Anyway, this one’s from the Marlborough region in New Zealand, more famous for Sauvignon Blanc. With a pink tinge to it, think really fresh nectarine and pear flavours. Not an everyday wine at over £10 but lip-bitingly good – and refreshingly different. Memorable, too.
Current red in the rack: Tesco Finest Argentinian Malbec 2013
Price: £6.49 - Buy From Tesco
The thing about these supermarket finest/taste the difference/extra special ranges is that the wineries behind the wines are often really good. You might just have to squint to find their names on the label (and sometimes their name won’t be on there at all). This one’s made by an Argentinian producer called Catena, one of the best in the country when it comes to Malbec. And their take on Malbec is perfect for the price, full of dark berry and cherry fruit flavours and a pinch of spice. Needs meat.
