€9.99 from Fresh Stores.

Fragrant, with plump rounded plum and red cherry fruits and a smooth finish. You cannot ask for more at this price.

Dangerously easy to drink and perfect for large gatherings and parties.

The label is a painting, showing the famous Number 28 yellow tram of Lisbon in the distance. This which may seem familiar to some of you; O’Briens have their Porta 6, a Portuguese red wine, featuring the same vehicle, that flies out when it is promoted at around €10 a bottle – the wine that is, not the tram. This wine is made by a different producer, but has a certain similarity in style. Apparently this is the best selling wine in all five Fresh stores.

Available from Sheridan’s Cheesemongers

Fresh and lively with delectable ripe cherry and plum fruits, a hint of spice and a smooth finish. Dangerously easy to polish off a glass.

Made primarily from Méncia, with a proportion of Alicante Bouschet from various 30-60 year old plots, this is fermented and aged in stainless steel to keep those delicious primary fruits.
