AL12611 AL12611 Sylvaner, Léon Beyer 2014

This white has pear aromas, apple flavours, a hum of honey, a savoury note and just enough acidity to complement all. I'd cooked chicken stuffed with lemon and herbs and it was a perfect match. - Jane Clare

AU18391 AU18391 Blind Spot Frankland River Riesling 2015

Star buy: Our tasters loved this cool, sleek, very dry riesling with its limey aromas and vibrant natural acidity. They found it poised, with good length for the price. It could benefit from more time in the bottle. - Rose Murray Brown

PW5571 PW5571 Altano, Douro Branco 2015

A bright white from Symington Family Estates, better known as a key Port producer. The wine is a blend of fina, viosinho, rabigato, coda de larinho and moscatel galego grown in the Douro Valley. It has vibrant aromas of peach and pear, and in the mouth those same stone fruit flavours sing with juiciness and a decent acidity is a good counter-balance. A summer night must-have. - Jane Clare

PW5571 PW5571 Altano, Douro Branco 2015

I can't imagine there are too many other wines at this price that can boast the same quality. This is the only white made by the Symington Family Estate … High altitude helps reveal the freshness in the grapes here and that's very evident in this wine. Lemon zesty and aromatic, there is also plenty of ripeness in the palate with a slight hint of an almond nuttiness. - Andy Cronshaw

SP11611 SP11611 Scala Dei Pla des Àngels Garnacha Rosado 2015

This incredible wine arrives this week and it comes from a legendary Spanish estate famed for making massive reds.  The delicate, haunting, rose petal perfume of this rosé is remarkable and this sensual aroma is backed up with a firm, long, masterful palate.  It’s worth every penny! - Matthew Jukes

SP11261 SP11261 Gaba do Xil Godello, Valdeorras 2015

Bravo to The Wine Society for finding this racy, silky, pristine and glorious old-vine godello from granite soils in mountainous Valdeorras DO. It's made by the renowned and talented Telmo Rodriguez and has purity and energy in every sip, with flavours of citrus, white peach and melon. You will be shocked at the complexity and stunning depth of flavour. It's sheer heaven with fish pie or roast chicken and an altogether rounder alternative to fashionable albariño. Particularly seek it out if you're a fan of white Burgundy. The sweet mystery is the price: It's one of the bargain fine wines of the year: a rare treat. Stock up for the end of summer. - James Viner
