Co-op wines for Father's Day
If you are doing a family meal for Dad on Father's Day, these two Co-op wines should keep a general audience very happy indeed - tasty and inexpensive wines to match with a family roast dinner.
They both improve with a bit of air - especially the Rioja, so dust off the decanter and give them a couple of hours' breathing.
Wolf Blass Yellow Label Chardonnay (£9.99, reduced to £6.99 from June 8 - 21) Ripe melon and pineapple fruit with stone fruits and a creamy nuttiness. Clean, fresh and rounded, very adept.
You could drink this versatile wine all the way through a meal; fresh enough for a quaffer, it will also match with fish starters, roast white meats and even the cheese course.
Muriel Reserva Rioja 2011 (£8.99) Ripe berry fruit with earthy-woodsiness, sweet vanilla and oaky, peppery spice; fresh with a supple texture.
Match with roast red meat, especially garlic and rosemary lamb; and with the cheese course if you've finish off the Chardie.
