Helen McGinn tries Danaris Gruner Veltliner wine

This week Helen McGinn (pictured) Danaris Gruner Veltliner paired with Grilled white fish


Graham Norton’s Own Rosé 2017, £7.50 (normally £9.50), Tesco

Graham Norton, rarely seen without a glass on his TV chat show, launched a sauvignon blanc a few years ago. And now he’s got a rosé. Light, fresh, subtle redcurrant fruits and a touch of sweetness. Dangerously drinkable.


Danaris Gruner Veltliner 2017, £9.89, Laithwaites

Gorgeous lime-filled white made from Austria’s secret weapon, the Gruner Veltliner grape. Crisp, fresh, aromatic and refreshingly light but brilliantly memorable, this ticks so many summer white boxes.

Food pairing: Grilled white fish.


Tanners Australian Shiraz 2016, £8.95, Tanners

This is properly good value. It’s juicy and joyous, with buckets of bramble fruit flavours, finishing with a touch of black pepper. It’s selling well, so get in there quick.

Food pairing: Burgers.


Bird in Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir, £15.99, Waitrose

This bright pink fizz comes with a big dollop of strawberry and cherry fruits and carries more weight than most pink sparkling wines out there. Refreshingly modern.

Food pairing: Skips crisps.

The Knackered Mother’s Wine Club by Helen McGinn is published by Pan Macmillan at £7.99.
