WINE OF THE WEEK: Pasico Bush Vine Monastrell Shiraz 2014

£6.50, Sainsbury's

A young Spanish red made without any ageing in oak so that the bright, bold flavours are all about fruit and spice - ripe berries, juicy plums, sweet red peppers and crushed black peppercorns. For the fact file: the winemaking is modern, but the vines (aka Mourvèdre and Syrah) are old and are left to grow as bushes. Cries out for meaty sausages, red meat - on the barbie if it's still fired up - or melt-in-the-mouth slow-roast pork.

Pasico Bush Vine Monastrell Shiraz, 2014, Jumilla, Spain
