Two wines to try: a well-priced white and a rounded red

John Wilson’s wines for the weekend: a versatile white and a warming Côtes du Rhône

As the weather gets colder, we need wines with a bit more oomph. This week, two slightly richer wines to match more substantial foods, from Marks & Spencer.

Ken Forrester Workhorse Chenin Blanc 2018
A nice well-priced, medium-bodied wine with lightly textured creamy peaches and hints of toasted nuts and dried herbs. Try it with seafood pasta dishes or lightly spicy Thai green curries.

Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu 2018
