Under a Fiver
2007 Vin de Pays des Côtes de Gascogne
With its Atlantic-influenced climate, the zesty, tropical characters and appley bite of this colombard and ugni blanc blend from the Plaimont Co-operative almost suggest Loire Valley sauvignon blanc.
Under a Tenner
2007 Gemtree Tigers Eye Shiraz, McLaren Vale
If you're eyeing up the barbie, this superior Aussie screwcapped shiraz with its smoky, paprika-like aromas is a powerful enough red to handle the charriest of grills.
2005 Pirie Estate Pinot Noir
Andrew Pirie has spent a lifetime honing the special qualities of Tasmanian pinot noir and it shows in this elegant, aromatic red which smacks of just-picked fraises du bois.
