With a dash of tocai friulano for extra freshness and bite, this opulent, full-flavoured peachy dry Argentinian white from the Lurton's cool Uco Valley is flecked with honey and balanced by a twist of refreshing, citrusy acidity.

Under a tenner: 2003 Clos de los Siete, £9.99, Majestic, Oddbins

A blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and syrah, the second vintage from Michel Rolland's ambitious new Argentinian project entices with opulent blackberry fruit and a smooth sheen of oak adding complexity and finesse.

Splash out: 2002 Chacayes, £34.95, Roberson, London W14 (020-7271 2121)

In its first vintage, Bodega Lurton's top of the range malbec with a dash of cabernet sauvignon is an intensely flavoured, richly concentrated, new-wave Argentinian blend full of liquorice spice and powerful mulberry fruitiness.
