Supermarket wines to try: Two German whites and an unusual Malbec rosé

Wines for the Weekend: highly regarded producer from the Mosel in Germany is producing good value wines

Lidl have a mini wine offer to coincide with Easter. The promotion includes an off-dry Riesling feinherb from Markus Molitor (€12.99), a German sparkling rosé (€24.99) and something a little unusual – a rosé made from Malbec (Suelo Malbec Rosé €9.99), as well as the more usual red below.

Markus Molitor is a highly regarded producer from the Mosel in Germany, and owner of a number of top vineyards. Both the Riesling, and the sauvignon below are worth trying out.

Markus Molitor Mosel Sauvignon Blanc Trocken 2022

Classic zesty, floral sauvignon aromas with racy peach and apple fruits, finishing dry. Good on its own or with salads. Abv 12.5%, €13.99.

Suelo Argentino Malbec 2022

A medium-bodied Malbec with clean plum and other dark fruits. Supple enough to drink on its own, this would go nicely with pork dishes or roast chicken. Abv 13% , €9.99.
