Silversurfers are renowned for a love of travel. If you also enjoy great wine, don’t miss this world taste tour courtesy of Laithwaite’s Wine. It’s just £6.99 a bottle – and comes with some very special FREE gift.

Your first wine is Willem the Silent, a Gold-medal red that transports you to the sunshine of southern France. Specifically, the hidden appellation of Vaucluse, which lies just to the east of the historic cities of Orange and Avignon. The vineyards here are strewn with large pudding stones that soak up sunshine during the day and radiate heat up to the vines at night. This helps produce gorgeously ripe fruit that Châteauneuf-du-Pape star Thierry Ferlay transforms into a warming red bursting with dark cherry, blackberry and wild herb flavours.

Thrilling trips Down Under could be back on the itinerary before you know it and The Black Stump gives you a super-juicy taste of Australia’s famous Big Red style. It’s been a bestseller for nearly two decades and combines the world-famous Shiraz grape with deep, dark Durif. It’s made by Big Red king Alan Kennett and delivers wave after wave of smooth, dark fruit and creamy vanilla notes.

Your final red is berry-laden Silver Route from vineyards on one of Spain’s most historic trade roads. The route ran from Seville to Gijon, cutting through remote Estremadura and this region is now renowned for great reds like this. It’s a velvety marriage of berry-scented Tempranillo and robust, spicy Syrah, and makes the perfect partner for meaty tapas dishes.

Everyone must see incredible New Zealand at least once. For now, let’s enjoy the thrilling tropical fruit flavours of The Hour Teller Sauvignon Blanc from North Island’s spectacular East Coast. While most fans of Kiwi whites know the Sauvignon of Marlborough, this gives you a chance to savour the same refreshing style from a different region. We promise you’ll love it.

Most tourists head to the big cities when they visit Australia, but Westend Estate No.1 Chardonnay takes you to the wine heartland of Riverina, New South Wales (350 miles from Sydney). It’s crafted by Bill Calabria, a winemaking veteran whose pride-and-joy Chardonnay has ripe peach and apricot flavours alongside subtle oak notes.

Zesty, elegant Visionario takes you high into the Alpine foothills of northern Italy. Cool night-time temperatures and plenty of sunshine make for a classic white style that’s very popular in the restaurants of Venice and Verona. Serve this refreshingly chilled with seafood linguine.

A great case at just £68.44 £41.94 – and it comes with a FREE bottle of Amarone-style Governo from the rolling hills of Tuscany. It’s a silky combination of Sangiovese and Merlot and is packed with dark cherry, mocha and spicy oak flavours. Plus, Delivery is FREE (together normally £24.48).
