Under a fiver: 2002 Leopard's Leap The Lookout Cape Mountain Red, £3.59, Tesco, reduced from £4.99 until Tuesday

A fruit salad of seven red grape varieties, this affordable Cape blend has an appealing nose with smoky oak and juicy cherryish fruit topped off by firm, robust tannins.

Under a tenner: 2003 Blind River Sauvignon Blanc, £9.99, Oddbins

Deceptively restrained for Marlborough, this subtle New Zealand sauvignon blanc displays an elegant elderflower-scented quality with plenty of textured underlying passion fruit and gooseberry-fruit intensity. One for goat's cheese melted over brioche.

Splash out: 2002 Chablis 1er Cru Sélection Brocard, £10.99, Sainsbury's

Jean-Marc Brocard won four golds at this year's International Wine Challenge. This dry white burgundy was one winner - fresh acidity, honeyed ripeness and the minerally flavours of unoaked chardonnay grown in the chalky soils of Chablis.
