AL12241 AL12241 Pinot Blanc, Mise du Printemps, Josmeyer 2014

A great wine with fish and shellfish, grilled prawns and oriental flavours such as ginger and lime. - Paul Gracey

IT20111 IT20111 Cirò Rosso Gaglioppo, Santa Venere 2013

Another gem from the Wine Society's current good-value Italian range – punching well above its weight, a lovely, rounded, medium-bodied red from Gaglioppo grapes, organically grown in Calabria in the deep south of Italy. For all tomato-based pasta dishes and the first casseroles of autumn. - Terry Kirby

SA9731 SA9731 De Morgenzon DMZ Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch 2014

A gem of an all-round weeknight white that’s worth every penny. - Olly Smith

AL11511 AL11511 Riesling, Trimbach 2012

A definite dry style, with white peach and crisp red apple flavours, backed by lean, crisp, minerally crunch. Fish is the classic combination for this, but I enjoy Alsace wines with lightly spiced Thai dishes. - Christine Austin

NZ8241 NZ8241 Seresin Raupo Creek Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

No surprise to find The Wine Society has snapped up my second favourite of the Seresin pinot noirs. Raupo Creek is the biggest of the vineyards and about 500 cases of this oak-aged pinot are made. It’s not Rachel, but it does have a lovely fragrance and sense of joy. - Victoria Moore

CE8131 CE8131 Matetic Corralillo San Antonio Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The Matetic winery is based in a stunning setting in Rosario valley, a sub-region of the San Antonio wine region.  The vineyards – all farmed organically - are all surrounded by acres of farmland.  Just inland from the coast, they benefit from cool ocean breezes so it is ideal here for the Sauvignon Blanc grape.  Juicy fresh green apple and grapefruit notes, savoury undertones – a very fresh appealing aperitif. - Rose Murray Brown

CE5151 CE5151 The Society's Chilean Chardonnay, Limarí 2014

Star value buy: One of the cheapest Chilean Chardonnays we tasted – but it hit the jackpot with its delicious refreshing zippy palate.  Hints of nuttiness, citric fruit flavours and a touch of oak (from 10% oak) remind you that this is a Chardonnay – but it does have a certain zesty sleekness you often find more in Sauvignon Blanc.  A great price for an easy going Chilean quaffer. - Rose Murray Brown

BW5121 BW5121 Château Martinon, Entre-Deux-Mers 2014

There are light pineapple and lemon aromas from this fruity white - a pleasing cool drink on a hot evening by itself or with a seafood supper. The blend is mostly semillon plus 25% sauvignon blanc, 15% sauvignon gris and 5% muscadelle. - Peter Homer

CB4391 CB4391 Château Pey La Tour Réserve du Château, Bordeaux Supérieur 2011

Classic Bordeaux; dark plum fruit and good structure with some aged complexity - an athletic-yet-deft rugby player of a wine. - Tom Lewis

( Cambridge Wine Blogger 10th Sep 2015 )

SH341 SH341 Hidalgo Pastrana Manzanilla Pasada

Age has given it a rounder character and savoury depth, yet it is still bone dry and so versatile alone or with food. Again there are lots of stockists, but the Wine Society's price of £10.50 is hard to beat. - Liz Sagues
