Sunday lunch

Domaine Sainte Anne Notre Dame des Cellettes 2011

The reliable, comforting structure and deep flavours of a good Côtes du Rhône such as this are essential to help us survive the rigours of February. Get an open fire going, roast a butterfly leg of lamb with anchovies, garlic and rosemary, and savour its rich, spicy fruitiness and long finish. £14.85, hhandc.co.uk

Midweek meal

Nero d'Avola Terre Sicilian 2012

The vibrant, peppery, silky-with-a-touch-of-bitter-chocolate characteristics of Nero d'Avola are on fine display here and will refresh the soul after a long, hard day. Try with pasta Sicilian-style: sardines, pine nuts, topped with fried breadcrumbs. £7.75, jascots.co.uk

Bargain basement

A Fistful of Schist, Coastal 2012

From grapes grown on the schist soils of South Africa's Swartland region, this spicily robust blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault has more in common with the red blends of southern France and needs to be matched with an equally full-bodied casserole. £6.50, thewinesociety.com
