Top Quality Red, White and Rose Wines from Spar Wine

The SPAR wine range covers a large number of top quality wines chosen and designed by leading industry experts, from delicious reds to crisp whites, including some excellent award winning wines at great prices. I was sent a red, a white and a rose from their brand new collection to try out, and pair with some vegetarian meals.


Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

Country: Italy   Region: Abruzzo
Priced at £5.50

A smooth, rich, and delicious wine with rich spice and coffee flavours. 

red wine

This is quite honestly one of the best reds I have ever tasted. It was so smooth with a wonderful rich and deep flavour that was so easy to drink. I loved it so much I resented sharing it with Ian and made him get a beer instead! 

When it comes to food pairing, some say this is the best match for pizza, but it is also great with pasta dishes. I paired it with a Quorn bolognese and it went together really well. It was a lovely taste of an Italian summer, enjoying the pasta dish with a couple of glasses of this smooth, big flavoured red!

South African Reserve Chenin Blanc

Country: South Africa   Region: Western Cape
Priced at £6.09, on promotion at £5.50

With flavours of apple and honey, this crisp, dry white goes well with Thai curries, summer salads or antipasti. 

This is a great party drink for social occasions when serving plates of nibbles.

Rosé d’Anjou

Country: France        Region: Loire Valley
Priced at £8, on promotion at £6.50

This classic French rosé has an appetising nose of summery strawberries and cream. It has a very slight sweetness which is cut with juicy red fruit flavours on the palate. Served chilled it is refreshing and fruity and is a nice accompaniment to a meal.

This pretty pink wine is ideal with salads, mildly spiced curries and rice dishes. We served it with a Quorn and vegetable balti curry with brown basmati rice. It made a posh change to having lager!
