A Tricolour of Tipple

Just as the leaves of the trees have started to shift in colour, so does this month’s selection of recommended wines. This tricoloured bunch is perfect both for those last Indian summer days and for when you want a good autumn warmer.

You think Pecorino is a cheese? Think again. Well, it is a cheese, but it’s also a New Wave Italian white – sappy, stony, with the dry twist of a fresh Granny Smith apple and a beguiling whiff of cedar.

2013 Pecorino
Morrisons, £7.99





Cinsault is an unsung red grape from southern France – pale and mellow by nature with no hard edges. So it’s the perfect grape to use for this light, soft, ultra-fresh, apply pink.

2013 Montgravet Cinsault Rosé 
Waitrose, £5.99




Some very good stuff has come from the Co-op recently. This Chilean Malbec is led by intense blackcurrant and pepper, followed
by mint and lime.

2012 Truly Irresistible Bio Bio Malbec
Co-op, £6.99
