Night in

2014 The Wine Atlas Tokaji

It's adventurous of Asda to list a Hungarian wine from the Tokaj region, and it pays off in a dry white with classic ginger spice notes and an appley character with chablis-like crispness. £6.67, Asda

Dinner party

2012 Errazuriz Wild Ferment Chardonnay, Casablanca, Chile

Barrel-fermented in white burgundy style by Errazuriz's Francisco Baettig, there's a subtle touch of oak in this flavoursome coastal chardonnay. £12.99, Morrisons

Splash out

2010 Morambro Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, Padthaway, South Australia

A fragrant note of mint and herb leads into a classic Coonawarra-like cabernet sauvignon with spice-tinged cassis flavours. £15.99, Waitrose
