About this deal

Anyone who goes on holiday to Spain knows that Freixenet Cordon Negro Cava – in its sexy black matt bottle – is one of the best-kept secrets in supermercados and is often served as the house fizz at even the fanciest of restaurants. What’s more, the winning flavour profile is matched by impressive sustainability credentials, from the Fairtrade marque supporting local communities to the solar-powered production methods (they’re only the second winery in South Africa to be powered by the sun). As the highest calibre of the Rhône Valley – there are no more than three in total, including Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Rhône Villages – the classic Cru des Côtes du Rhône Vinsobres packs a proper punch for Sunday roasts or summer barbecues. Rich and full, it’s a concentrated explosion of summer fruits with a spicy and herby finish, pairing as wonderfully with the main event as it does with after-dinner cheese. Cassis, black cherries, coffee and dark chocolate combine in this smooth, medium-bodied cabernet sauvignon.

When in Rome is one of the best producers of the alternative format currently taking UK households by storm. Fresh red fruit and blackberry aromas with notes of vanilla and aromatic herbs combine to create a proper taste of the Med in the mouth. Rich and smooth, it’s a deep and dramatic crimson in colour for a luxurious and lipsmacking swirl in the glass, with a snazzy label to boot that hipsters will love. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you always read the actual product label carefully before using or consuming any product.The Nero d’Avola is a bold and fruity red from Sicily bursting with blackcurrant, black cherries and black pepper with just a hint of cloves. Deliciously creamy, it’s made from carefully-selected tempranillo grapes, and features charismatic red berries with a touch of oak (thanks to barrel-ageing for more than a year). The merlot is seriously soft and smooth while being full of black fruit aromas with spicy plum and raspberry flavours. With a cult following amongst eco warriors, The Hidden Sea is an Aussie label to love for its ethics alone, as they remove 10 single-use plastic bottles from the ocean for every single bottle sold. Fast fact: they’ve already removed 10 million bottles thanks, in large part, to the stamina of UK drinkers.

The result is an easy-drinking and generous sip that even the most discerning of wine snobs can’t dispense enough of (it’s a good job it contains the equivalent of three bottles). Please remember that products suitable for vegans may not necessarily be suitable for people with food allergies, as advised by The Vegan Society. Moreish and intense, there’s blackcurrant and mulberry on the nose and blueberry and black olives on the palate, making this an enticing choice for everyday drinking. We recommend that you always check the packaging for allergen advice and talk to your doctor if you need any further food allergy advice. The bouquet has a wild berry fruit character with spicy notes and violet aromas, with a very elegant finish.The bottles under The Best label from Morrisons can usually be trusted, but their Marques de los Rios Rioja Crianza is truly exceptional, even by the discerning standards of their premium range. Full-bodied, it has hints of black fruits, ripe plums, raisins, vanilla and sweet and toasted spices on the nose, while being smooth with sweet tannins on the palate.
