Wine: Something for the weekend
Saturday 26 November 2011
2009 Nerello Mascalese, Sicily
From the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily, the nerello mascalese grape hints at the red berry-fruit quality of pinot noir, yet brings a strawberryish succulence that's entirely its own. £5.99, Marks & Spencer
2011 Craggy Range Avery Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough
Scents of grapefruit and passionfruit lead to a glassful of grapefruit freshness, which can vie with Sancerre for quality. £9.99, down from £12.99, until 6 December, Waitrose
2006 Bodegas Roda Rioja Reserva
Ultra-modern rioja from the brilliant Roda stable whose silky quality of tempranillo is textured with light toasty oak and intensely mulberryish fruit that sets great rioja apart from the common-or-garden. £24.99, Sainsbury's Fine Wine
