It has a lifted floral bouquet with raspberry wine gums and wild strawberry, while the palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins, red currant and raspberry laced with vanilla towards the crisp finish. It is composed, harmonious and packs sufficient fruit to leave you satisfied at this price. Drink now till 2017. Blended with 10% Merlot and aged for 12 months in French Oak.

The texture of this wine deftly balances the richness of ripe stone fruit with the grip of fruit skins, like apple and apricot. A hint of white pepper adds subtle complexity, while the finish feels fresh and elegant. Try it with toasted almonds.

A terrific Chardonnay at a great price. The ripe orange, pineapple, tropical fruit and vanilla-cream flavors are enriched with butter and oak. What's best of all is the acidity. It's so bright and zesty, it balances all the richness, making it worth repeated sips. Editors' Choice.
