Vinus by Paul Mas Clairette 2018, Languedoc-Roussillon, France, 12.5%, Morrisons down from £8.25 to £6.50 until 16 July  

A fresh-tasting, floral-edged, apple and citrus style of wine.  Good as an aperitif but goes well with grilled fish and salads.

La Vieille Ferme Rosé 2018, Rhône, France, 12.5%, Co-op, down from £7.75 to £6.75 until 16 July

Light, easy, crunchy raspberry fruit with a dry, clean finish.  Perfect for sunshine lunches.

Morgon Cru Beaujolais Duboeuf 2015, France, 13.5% Waitrose down from £11.99 to £8.99 until 9 July

Bigger, richer and more serious than straight Beaujolais or Villages quality but still with dark cherry fruit and a bite of freshness.  Team with duck.

Burra Brook Merlot 2018, Australia, 13%, Marks and Spencer, down from £7 to £6 until 29 July

With warm, ripe, black and redcurrant fruit and supple, food-friendly tannins, this will accompany a lamb chop, steak or roast chicken with ease.
