1. The Adnams Selection Pinot Grigio 'La Corte'

£8.99, cellarandkitchen.adnams.co.uk

A clean, fresh and lively palate and finishes on a twist of citrus. A treat with mushroom risotto.

2. El Guia Blanco 2011 Vino de Mesa Spain

£3.99, waitrosedirect.com

Fresh and light wine is made with a splash of verdejo and sauvignon blanc and is astoundingly good, given the price tag.

3. Tesco Finest Marlborough Autumn Picked Riesling 2011

£9.99, tesco.com

Slightly sweet, with a hint of melon and raisins, but alongside that rich, fruity taste there's a citrus zing – like a crunchy apple.

4. Castelnau de Suduiraut Sauternes 2007

£12.75 half bottle, fromvineyardsdirect.com

Nectar, particularly with apple crumble or rhubarb fool, at a fraction of the price you'd expect.

5. Elegant Frog Viognier

£8.49, sainsburys.co.uk

Viognier is a fantastic partner to roast chicken, guinea fowl, tagines and mild curries, so what better time of year to crack open a bottle? Silly name but a stunner.

6. Godello Alma de Blanco, Galicia

£7.75, oddbins.com

Medium-bodied wine is concentrated, but nicely balanced. Boasting luscious aromas of tropical fruits, pear and apricot.

7. Fortnum's Pouilly Fuisse Terres de Pierres, Verget

£18.50, fortnumandmason.com

Specially made for F&M, it has terrific minerality and fruit intensity, while still crisp and fresh.

8. Vega de la Reina Verdejo 2011

£5.99, majestic.co.uk

Great with rice or seafood pasta dishes. It's as crisp and refreshing as sauvignon blanc, but with softer melon and petal touches.

9. Golden Valley Grasevina, Croatia 2011

£6.99, marksandspencer.com

A heart-warming partner for roast chicken and pork with crackling, this generous white is from the hills of Kutjevo in Croatia.

10. 2011 War Horse Chenin Blanc, South Africa

£8.60, jascots.co.uk

Explosively refreshing and cleansing. Pair it with food as it easily has enough vibrancy and freshness.
