Sunday lunch

Skouras Saint George, Nemea 2011

This wonderfully balanced bottle is simple proof of the massive advances in Greek wine-making in recent years – succulent, medium-bodied, with some smoky, mouth-filling, raspberry and cherry fruits. The obvious choice for moussaka or any grilled lamb with rosemary. £13.30, tanners-wines.co.uk

Midweek meal

Les Grands Chemins Marsanne Viognier 2013 Pays d'Oc

In contrast to other blends of these two very different grapes, the creamy but spicy Marsanne here dominates the Viognier, which provides a floral underpinning of apricots and honeysuckle. Scallops are the ideal match, but this also works with Asian-style fish or chicken dishes. £8.99, virginwines.co.uk

Bargain basement

Rocca Vecchia Falanghina 2013

A white from Puglia that is, like most of the reds for which the area is better known, excellent value for money. Surprisingly full-bodied, very refreshing and very dry, it is bursting with lemon-edged flavours of melons, apples and pears, with a subtle, herby touch. £6.99, Co-op stores
