Wine recommendations

I would like to make my own wine tasting gift hamper for a colleague. I am a complete wine Neanderthal though as I dont drink the stuff myself, so am completely lost as to what to include. Please can anyone recommend a couple of bottles of reasonably priced wine, Im thinking one white, one red that I could include please? Thank you.

I have no idea about Reds sorry

For a white at a reasonable price I would suggest Mud House Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Down from 9 to 7 in Asda.

Second choice would be Kiwi Cove Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Also down in Asda from 8 to 6

I was going to suggest pretty much the same; a NZ Sauvignon Bland of some kind. Most are excellent.

I don't drink red, but my husband likes the Campo Viejo range; Tempranillo, or the orange label.

25% off in Sainsburys if you buy 6 at the moment I think...

I was hoping to keep it to 10 or under per bottle.

If it is for a hamper gift how about a selection of miniatures. You can then have a nice variety. Asda have a good selection of them, each bottle contains one glassful.

The wine is 25% if 6 bottles in Asda too. Dont think it works on the small bottles.

I also like the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.( Thanks Mr TM I will get down to Asda if theres an offer on !) Husband drinks red and chooses Malbec but this is much too strong a taste for me.

Do you have a Waitrose near you? They have a great offer on at the moment. Fine wines down to 10. I bought a lovely Argentinian Malbec (usual price 17.49) and my new favourite Mirabeau Rose, down from 15.

My favourite reds are Cabernet Sauvignon, or Temperanillo, both easy to drink and fruity. Aldi is my go to shop for wine, they have a great selection!
Great gift by the way.
