Saturday 15 October 2011
2010 Tesco Finest* Muscadet Sur Lie, Chateau Palatic
Sea-breezy on the nose, this is a typical Atlantic dry white whose lees-induced spritz adds a crisp, appley tang to the fruit, making it the perfect affordable dry white for shellfish. £5.99, Tesco
2006 Rioja Reserva Dos Maderas, Beronia
Beronia uses French and American oak to bring spicy undertones of vanilla to the dark fruit concentration of this fine reserva rioja with its infusion of gamey notes. £12.49, buy 2 = £9.99, Majestic
2008 Kumeu River Coddington Chardonnay, Auckland
Michael Brajkovich MW creates not just wonderful flavours but a burgundian-style complexity enhanced by a lively freshness. £19.92, Tanners (tanners-wines.co.uk; 01743 234500)
