The perfect summery patio sipper, this is delightfully jasmine-like in its fragrance with a juicy quality of lychee-like fruit cut by orange peel freshness. Around £8.29, Waitrose, Tesco.com, Tanners
2009 Château Sénéjac, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux
There's a veneer of aromatic liquorice and vanilla spice behind the dark cherry and blackcurrant of this medium-bodied cru bourgeois. £12.99, Co-op
2011 Robert Oatley Margaret River Finisterre Chardonnay
This vibrant wine has underlying nutty characters and limey freshness that bring balance and a meursault-like complexity to its opulent fruit. £18.99, Waitrose
