Night In

2012 Root 1 Carmenère, Colchagua Valley, Chile

A fragrant blend of carmenère with a dash of spicy syrah from Viña Ventisquero, plenty of juicy-textured blackcurrant fruit and the fresh touch of the carmenère grape's mint. £8.99, Morrisons

Dinner party

2012 Bolfan Primus Orange Pinot Sivi, Croatia

A pretty tawny orange, this is a distinctive white made from pinot gris showing deliciously spicy apple and peachy fruitiness. £14, Marks & Spencer

Splash out

2012 Eben Sadie Sequillo White

This is one of South Africa's great white wines, whose intense stonefruit flavour is flecked with honey while a minerally acidity carries it through to a long, dry finish. £20.50, Oddbins
