Australian Riesling; Tasmanian Pinot Noir; New Zealand Sauvignon

 

Night in

2013 The Exquisite Collection Clare Valley Riesling

From the ever-reliable Taylor's, aka Wakefield, in south Australia's Riesling-producing Clare Valley, it is aromatic and scrumptiously zingy. Good with fish. £6.99, Aldi

Dinner party

2012 Tamar Ridge Devil's Corner Pinot Noir, Tasmania

With its berry-like perfume, this could be from Burgundy's Savigny-lès-Beaune, only there's more opulent spice and fruit. £13-15, Rannoch Scott, Bon Coeur, Hawkshead Wines

Splash out

2012 Cloudy Bay Te Koko

The Graves-style brother to New Zealand's iconic sauvignon. The fresh herb and gooseberry qualities here are intense and have a creamy richness. Around £30, Jeroboams, Hedonism, Ocado
