A toast to your roast

Co-op wine buyer Ben Cahill has the ideal bottle to go with your Sunday roast, whatever you’re cooking

1 For chicken or fish 

‘The zingy acidity and freshness of this French white is balanced by its rich texture and notes of honey. It’s perfect with white meat or seafood, but fantastic on its own too.’ Co-op Irresistible Viognier, 75cl

For roast lamb or game 

‘With its delicious aromas of black fruit and spices, this elegant red from the heart of Rioja complements the bold flavours of roast lamb or game brilliantly.’ Co-op Irresistible Rioja Crianza, 75cl

For vegetarian roasts

‘The natural sweetness of roasted vegetables pairs beautifully with this soft, smooth Italian red.’ Co-op Irresistible Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, 75cl

For hearty roast beef 

‘This classic Bordeaux, exclusive to Co-op, has flavours of dark fruits like damson and blackcurrant. It’s the perfect match for succulent roast beef and root veg.’ Château Vieux Manoir, 75cl
