Wine: Something for the weekend

 

Couch potato

Lindauer Rosé, NV, New Zealand

It's a superior classy pink fizz from New Zealand, whose yeasty aromas and raspberry ripple-style mousse display a complexity akin to that of champagne. On special offer at £7.99 until 12 March, Majestic, £11.99 thereafter

Dinner party

2009 Aglianico, Terredora, IGT Campania

Scented with dark berry fruits tinged with spice and etched with a bramble fruit freshness, if robust on the aftertaste, this is a fruity and fresh 'Barolo of the South'. £12.95, Jeroboams/ Laytons shops

Splash out

2007 Mas d'Auzières , Sympathy Pour Les Stones, Coteaux du Languedoc

This devil of a southern French syrah is smoky, spicy and full of blackberry fruit. £12.78-£15, OW Loeb, The Good Wine Shop, Hangingditch, The Wine Tasting Shop
