Marks & Spencer might not be the first place you think of looking for a wine bargain but their Terrenal garnacha from the Cariñena region of Spain is an absolute steal.
Garnacha is the same grape - and the Spanish word for - grenache so you’d expect a big generous lipsmacking red and you certainly get one. It’s the sort of wine to crack open with a pizza or a hearty spag bol. Or a burger - it’s pretty versatile.
My only thing against it is that it doesn’t come from a specific vintage - my concern being you might get a bottle that’s a bit tired - but at that price I doubt it will hang around long enough to deteriorate
At the moment it’s only available in store though you can apparently order it from Ocado with whom M & S has a new partnership (though that has apparently made getting a delivery slot even harder!)
Asda has a very similar Old Vine Garnacha Cariñena from the same region at the same price in its Extra Special range. I don’t think it’s quite as good as the M & S blend but hard to complain at the price.
