Errazuriz Merlot 2010, £8.99, Sainsbury’s.

I’ve had a soft spot for Errazuriz ever since my backpacking daughter was given a VIP vineyard tour when she called in at the historic estate in Chile 15 years ago.

‘Chilean Merlot’ have become the bywords for good value red wine.

This varietal is smooth but rich in blackberry and cassis.
