Under a Fiver
2006 Coteaux du Tricastin, Delas
Well worth taking advantage of, this Easter discount, which started yesterday, offers the chance to pick up the Rhône wine merchant Delas' powerfully spicy, peppery blend of grenache, syrah and cinsault at a less than full-bodied price.
£6.99, buy 2 = £4.99, to 7 April, Majestic
Under a Tenne
2007 Sincerely Sauvignon Blanc, Neil Ellis
The tongue-in-cheek label is a wry dig at the Sancerre, the dry Cape sauvignon blanc itself displaying assertive green bean and capsicum aromas and refreshingly zingy gooseberryish fruitiness in a style that's not a million miles from the famous Loire Valley appellation.
2006 Rogers & Peterson Schoolhouse Block Yarra Valley Pinot Noir, Victoria
From Philglas's own Mike and Karen Rogers, this classic Victorian cool climate, single vineyard pinot noir shows fragrant cherryish undertones and an opulent smooth middle of ripe strawberry fruit and spicy oak in a modest framework of 13 per cent alcohol.
£17.99, Philglas and Swiggot, Battersea, Richmond and Marylebone (020 7402 0002. www.philglas-swiggot.co.uk
