Weekend Wines for Mother’s Day

3rd March 2016

Innocent Bystander Moscato £8.99/75cl
It’s great to celebrate Mother’s Day with a bottle of fizz, but Champagne won’t go with the scones, cream and jam. Ideal with afternoon tea, this vibrant pink, flowery moscato has a sweetness that works with the jam and just enough zest to cut through the cream. It’s fairly low in alcohol too, making it perfect for afternoon drinking.

Drink it with... Scones with clotted cream
Fill your teacups with the pink fizz and serve alongside these buttery bakes
Get the recipe in this week’s Waitrose Weekend, free to pick up from your local Waitrose.
