2014 Hells Heights Sauvignon Blanc Banghoek South Africa                            £11.99     6 for £60

There's Sancerre and then there's Marlbrough and somewhere in between is South African Sauvignon Blanc.  The care and attention that goes into the production of this wine is second to none.   This wine manages to balance toasty oak and spicy tropical fruit beautifully

 

2015 Leone De Castris Medaglione Primitivo Italy                                                         £12.99   2 for £25

I love the wines from the heel of Italy as they exemplify the warmth of the region.  This primitivo is soft, smooth and easy drinking and great wine for the money.  As satisfying to drink on its own or with a pasta ragu.
