Under a Fiver

2006 Les Andides Saumur Blanc
Although this chenin blanc from the Loire is already good value at its list price of £5.99, its tropical rich peachy fruit and touch of honey make it one of the summer's bargains.
£4.79 from 6-28 August, Waitrose

Under a Tenner

2007 Otra Vida Malbec
From the Argentinian giant Trivento, itself an offshoot of Concha y Toro, this is a plummy malbec whose red berry fruitiness and rustic tannins make it the ideal drink for summer barbecues.
£5.99, Sainsbury's

Splash Out

2006 Tesco Finest Yarra Valley Pinot Noir, Victoria
From Australia's "little Burgundy", this stylish red displays a sweet perfume, juicy, cherryish pinot noir with well-judged oak and a full-bodied opulence balanced by acidity and elegance.
£13.49, Tesco
