These two wines are on special offer from The Co-op from 16 March to 5 April 2016 inclusive - they are good wines for the money at full price and even better value on discount.
Torres Vina Sol 2014, Spain (reduced to £4.99 from £6.99) fresh floral aromas with ripe citrus fruit and a saline-minerality; a well-made and enjoyable light, versatile quaffer.
Drink as an aperitif or with lighter foods.
Chateau Vieux Manoir 2014, Bordeaux (reduced to £6.49 from £7.49) one does not normally think of buying wines from the Co-op to lay down - especially those under a tenner; waiting until the weekend is about as long as it gets.
Straight from the bottle (and even with an hour or so in the decanter) this Bordeaux feels a little thin. But a day or three later, it has all settled down into something really harmonious and enjoyable; bramble fruit, cool mint and pencil shavings freshness and a supple texture.
Match with roast red meats and be sure to open well ahead of time if you don't feel like giving this at least a few months' cellaring in a cool, dark place.
