This Valentine, we’ve pooled together some fine wines for you to enjoy. Whatever your choice find the obligatory romantic red (or blush) touch. Oh, ok we’ve thrown in a white for those of you who will insist!

Below – from left to right


Le Coeur des Anges Sauvignon Gris Rose France Bordeaux AOC abv 12.5%.

This delicately coloured wine is fully packed with light red fruit flavours which are belied by the demure hint of blush. Images of white lace and pearls spring to mind. Enjoy with shellfish or white meats. Available for £9.99.

Petticoat White Zinfandel 2011 USA California 10.0 abv %.

Get your flirt up! We liked this bottle for its cheeky emblem! This wine has a regular rose tone but the watermelon overtones are oh so sweet and different. Pair with stir fries or fish dishes. Just £6.99.

South Ridge Cuvee Merret Rose 2009 United Kindgdom Sussex 12.5% abv

We’re delighted to bring you a British contender among our pack. This sparkler is produced in west Sussex and the result is a wine packed full of cherries and plums. The fizz gives it a cheerful lift which we think you’ll agree is great as an aperitif. Buy for £16.99.

Il Papavero Papaverone – from Italy, Sicilia IGT, 15% abv.

The dark seductive one with the red flower emblem. Packing a punch at 15%, there is no let up with heavy plums and blackcurrant flavours weaving between a spicy nose. Has a long intense finish. Savour alone (if you dare) or with rich red meats. Romantic perfection for £15.99

The Optimist old vine Semillon 2011  Australia, South Eastern, 13% abv

Chill down with a pale white and its creamy palette of gooseberries and intense citrus. Note the hints of floral on the nose. Like most whites it is light and refreshing and the perfect pick me up. Recommended uncluttered without food. Just £7.99.
