Deeply coloured Spanish red based on the monastrell grape. Fragrant, with plenty of smooth, rounded blackberry fruitiness and a spicy, pepper character making for a smooth, fruity glugger, it's perfect for grills and barbecues.

Under a Tenner: 2002 Cave de Turckheim Grand Cru Riesling, £9.99, Booths

One of France's most reliable co-operatives produces wines that express the grape variety and character of the region, as seen in this aromatic, full-bodied, richly textured dry riesling. The ideal partner for fish, summer salads or Asian dishes.

Splash Out: 2002 Nepenthe Charleston Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir, 2 for £20, normally £14.99, Oddbins (limited availability)

This stylish cool climate pinot noir displays the classic berry fragrance of red burgundy's grape variety with a ripe, berry fruitiness that's enhanced by subtle oak maturation. Moreish stuff.
