Clefs Du Pontif Pays d’Oc 2014, £9.99,

Cherry red and tasting of raspberries and strawberries with a hint of liquorice here’s a French red to mark the entrance of autumn.

The grapes are Grenache and Syrah or Shiraz in equal quantities, alcohol is 13% and it comes from the southern Pays d’Oc region and specialists LGI.

Good value online from a Bristol firm founded in 1793.

Mud House Sauvignon Blanc 2014, £6.99, Morrisons

In its clear glass bottle this New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc looks supremely fresh and clean.

It tastes refreshingly of melon and grapefruit and is named after the home that the founders built themselves from the rich soil in the world-famous Marlborough region in which the grapes grew.

A dry 13% drink that is well priced and great value too.
