AA1761 AA1761 Rainer Wess Wachauer Grϋner Veltliner 2014

Schooled in Austria, Wess cut his teeth at assorted properties in Bordeaux before returning to his homeland and establishing his eponymous operation in 2003. This is aromatic, graceful and vivid grüner showing lovely tension, dried herbs and an abundance of citrus fruit. - Christelle Guibert

AL12241 AL12241 Pinot Blanc, Mise du Printemps, Josmeyer 2014

Pinot blanc doesn't get the respect it deserves, but when made by the well-respected Josmeyer, the result is exquisite. Spring blossom and white peach aromas open up to a moreish palate with a fleshy texture and refreshing acidity, Ripe apple and honey lift the finish. - Christelle Guibert

SA10611 SA10611 De Morgenzon DMZ Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch 2015

Great value for the quality, this is aromatic with bright flavours of pear drops, citrus fruit and white peaches. There’s a hint of apple pie here, too. It’s an inviting young chenin that combines richness and freshness. - Jamie Goode

AU17331 AU17331 Jamsheed La Syrah 2013

Terrific for the price. First in my tasting notes is the word ‘crozy’ – a wine so elegant it reminded me of top-notch French Crozes-Hermitage with impressively scented sleekness and fragrance. Not the sort of beefy Aussie red that might be more familiar to you but one that shows enthrallingly honest yet sophisticated winemaking. - Olly Smith

AU17611 AU17611 Blind Spot Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Amazingly elegant pinot for under a tenner made by super-talented Mac Forbes. Seize it at once. - Olly Smith

BW5081 BW5081 Château Reynon Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux 2013

Gooseberry freshness on the nose evolves into crisp citrus and other tart fruit in the mouth and shot through with a thread of spice. It has a pleasantly astringent, cleansing finish. Complements delicate goat’s cheese well and perfect with a Provençal salad. - Peter Morrell

IT19501 IT19501 Fiano Mandrarossa Sicilia IGT 2014

Zesty, crisp and delightfully dry… this aromatic, sophisticated Sicilian white mixes tangy tropical and citrus flavours on a rich, complex palate before a brisk discreetly acidic finish. It went wonderfully well with warm chicken, potato and dill salad. - Raymond Gleugh

IT2471 IT2471 The Society’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2013

Bargain-priced, stuffed with red berry fruit and also smooth and easy to glug, this is a wickedly enticing central Italian red with serious levels of flair and energy. Drinking perfectly right now, this is a cracking all-purpose red for entertaining. - Matthew Jukes

AR3211 AR3211 The Society's Exhibition Mendoza Malbec 2013

A classic malbec… a delicious accompaniment to a full-flavoured onglet and chimichurri. - Rachel Walker

On a par with Champagne. - Fiona Beckett
