Under a fiver: 2005 Valdivieso Sauvignon Blanc, Central Valley

The cool, Casablanca Valley fruit in this tropical blend make this Chilean a most convincing example of the grape. £4.99, Oddbins

Under a tenner: 2004 Smithbrook Pemberton Sauvignon Blanc

Halfway between the pungency of New Zealand and the restraint of Sancerre, this grapefruit-pithy sauvignon manages to combine richness and refreshing dryness. £7.33, Wine Rack

Splash out: 2000 Gewürztraminer Herrenweg, Domaine Zind-Humbrecht

Yellow gold with an exotic pot-pourri scent of rosewater and Turkish Delight - a powerful, spicy Alsace white. £16.99, Tesco (selected 90 stores only)
