Not content with calling this screwcap dry white "Finest" and "Reserve", Tesco uses the trendier Italian name "pinot grigio" rather than the French "pinot gris". Is this the ultimate in marketing speak?

Under a tenner: 2003 Terrunyo Sauvignon Blanc, Block 28 (hillside), El Triangulo Vineyard, Casablanca Valley, £7.50-£7.99, The Wine Society, Thresher, Wine Rack

From one of the best Chilean locations for sauvignon, this vibrant, aromatic wine has satisfying richness and thirst-quenchingly fresh acidity.

Splash out: 2001 Meursault, Domaine Michelot, £21.49, Oddbins

A beautifully crafted chardonnay from Burgundy's Côte de Beaune. Intensely flavoured with peach and pineapple fruit, it has a minerally, savoury undertone and crisp acidity - mouthwatering. Buy a case if you can as it will improve with three to six years' age.
