You’ve fashioned the flowers she’s sure to love, cinched the card, and all that’s left is to bag the right bottle to spark some joy.

After all, once her Mother’s Day message has been read and your bouquet is sitting pretty, it’s time to celebrate, reach for the crystal and make a toast to your mum.

From mood-boosting bubbles to fresh whites, rosés and reds, these stylish labels are sure to bring a smile to her face – and set the tone for the special-occasion Sunday…

1. Specially Selected Fleurs D’Eau Sparkling Brut Rosé, France, £7.99, Aldi in-store


Visually appealing with embossed glass, and a sense of style with ‘fleurs’ headlining this French fizz, it’s flowing with expectation. Fragrant with hints of blossom, and enticing summer fruit flavours with a fresh, harmonious finish, it’s delicious and over-delivers for the price point.

2. Remastered Sangiovese Wine 2022, Italy, £8.50, Tesco


With Roman sculptural busts and head vases trending big time, we’re quite taken with this funky label that offers a lot more personality than your average bottle of sangiovese… and we think your mum will be just as smitten.

Gorgeously scented with waves of morello cherries and damson, sweet and sour cherries and softly spiced raspberry fruit show elegance and length.

3. Cupiolo Pinot Grigio Blush 2022, Italy, £10.75, Tesco


A super example of how you don’t need to head to Provence for a passport to pleasure… in the realms of rosé, this blush is a beauty. Flirty and lots of fun, ripe juicy peaches with nectarine nuances unfold on the silky palate with gentle citrus notes lending plenty of freshness on the fragrant finish. Bellissima!

4. Wildflower Cuvée Blanc Reserva 2020, Cramele Recas, Banat, Romania, £14.49, Adnams

(Cramele Recas/PA)

An intriguing blend of, wait for it, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and two local grapes, adventurous wine lovers will appreciate this fresh, fragrant and engaging white. With hints of white peach, stone fruits and honeydew melon, there’s lovely complexity of flavour on the palate with more melon and citrusy flavours making themselves known, with a zesty, mouthwatering finish.

5. Mother’s Day Red Wine in Wooden Gift Box, £20.99, Virgin Wines

(Virgin Wines/PA)

A personalised gift box is just the ticket when you know your mum loves surprises. With lovely lavender fields on the label, this is a French malbec with characteristic violet aromas; richly fruited and ripe with blackcurrant and blueberry flavours, silky smooth tannins and poised finish. Sun-kissed and very inviting.

6. Ridgeview Fitzrovia Rosé NV, Sussex, England, £40


An English rosé to capture her heart, there’s no disputing Ridgeview are at the top of their game. And with the English wine scene booming, this is a wonderful example of how undeniably delicious and vivacious the brightest bubbles are. With crushed berry fruits galore, glimpses of citrus and honey among the raspberry and redcurrant fruit, balanced acidity and welcome touch of tart cherry on the lingering finish, it’s a joyous glass. Cheers!
