Duo Des Deux Mers, Sauvignon-Viognier Vin de France 2013

You want aromatic? You've got hyper-aromatic here in this distinctly unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, bottled under the increasingly interesting 'Vin de France' catch-all appellation. Bursting with gooseberry, lychee and explosively juicy peach, the well-tempered palate has bags of fruit, a great thrust of lime and grapefruit to freshen and a handily moderate 12% alcohol. A terrific all-round package. - Mid April Newsletter

Combines hints of viognier's fresh pineapple with the sauvignon's gooseberry background, which together cry out to be drunk with fish. - Brian Elliott

Esporão Monte Velho Branco, Alentejano 2012

This appealing everyday white from Portugal's Alentejo region is a mix of local and little-known indigenous grapes, such as Roupeiro and Perrum, which produce a very different, tangy, invigorating wine that is suitable for all kinds of Mediterranean foods. - Terry Kirby
