La Fortezza Vermentino 2017, Sicily, Italy, 12%, Marks and Spencer, down from £7 to £6 until 26 August

Terrific quality and value from Sicily where Vermentino grapes develop herb-scented, crisp Granny Smith apple and lively citrus notes.  Try with fish and chips.

Zalze Bush Vine Chenin Blanc 2018, South Africa, 13%, Morrisons £7.25 down to £6 until 3 September 

Zesty lemon and lime flavours with a twist of guava make this a great partner for fish.

Taste the Difference Bordeaux Rosé 2018, France, 12.5%, Sainsbury down from £8 to £6.50 until 13 August

Packed with the soft fruity flavours of Merlot with fresh, lively acidity on the finish.  This goes perfectly with cold roast chicken or a salmon quiche.

Château Maris Les Vieilles Vignes Organic Minervois 2018,  France, 14%, Waitrose down from £10.99 to £7.99 until 13 August

Chunky fruit and smooth tannins with just a whiff of sage and thyme. Great with tomato-based dishes, red meat and cheese.
