2008 Les Andides Saumur
An affordable dry Loire Valley white wine made from chenin blanc, this is a consistent performer for Waitrose; crisp and appley with a lingering bone-dry finish.
£4.99, down from £6.49, until 18 August, Waitrose
2006 Domaine Vistalba Viñalba Malbec/Syrah
The best red on Asda's shelves at the price, this is an aromatic example with the opulent black cherry flavour only Argentina seems to manage with malbec; a Patagonian blend of rare distinction.
2008 Forty Knots Sauvignon Blanc
From South Island's Awatere Valley, this Kiwi sauvignon hits the spot with its passion-fruit flavours and the green-pepper characters of this cool climate Marlborough sub-region.
£12.99, Marks & SpencerReuse content
