LO14451 LO14451 Pouilly-Fumé, Domaine Seguin 2017

I like the effect [Greenfields Grace's Goat's Cheese] it has on Pouilly-Fumé, using one of my favourites from The Wine Society, Domain Seguin to demonstrate how a restrained French white, with as much herbal quality as fruit, will suddenly burst into life with delicious citrus fruit when paired with this cheese. - Colin Burbidge

AU21711 AU21711 Foundstone Australian Merlot 2018

Sunny-side-up Aussie reds make great summer swigs, as their natural fruit sweetness and power make them the perfect partner with everything from barbecued meats to a lunchtime ploughman’s. Lap up this rare, single-varietal merlot, with oodles of rich, velvety, gamey, beefy fruit. - Jane MacQuitty

… made from the cinsault grape, a very pure and direct hit of fruit and a backbone of spice ...a very helpful screw-top. And it certainly demonstrates that fancy bottles and celebrity associations are not always needed to produce excellent wines. - Terry Kirby

SP14511 SP14511 El Casetero Garnacha, Campo de Borja 2017

Campo de Borja’s budget-beating, old-vine garnacha reds, from Aragon in northeast Spain, should be in every summer wine rack. Bodegas Frontonio is only a decade old, yet already even this, its entry-level garnacha, bursts with brilliant, minty, herby, dried strawberry fruit. - Jane MacQuitty

BJ7871 BJ7871 Jean-Paul Brun, Terres Dorées Beaujolais L'Ancien 2017

A cracker from the 'Pierres Dorées' or golden stone area of Beaujolais where village buildings have a sparkling yellow colour because of the iron oxide in the limestone rock used to build them. Once past the earthy 'forest floor' nose it's a wine with layers of velvety fruit from the bright bite of raspberries to cherry and red plum. Considering that this wine is not a cru Beaujolais it offers a surprising level of complexity as well as classic Beaujolais charm. - Andy Cronshaw

FC36041 FC36041 Domaine Laborie, Pays d'Oc 2018

Snap it up. It's rare to find wines to appreciate at this very modest price. This one, from the sunny south of France is very good value with plenty of ripe and juicy flavour for the price. It's made by blending the classic Languedoc grape varieties of grenache, carignan and syrah. Drink with nibbles. - Sally Easton

SP14611 SP14611 Señorio de Sarrίa Rosado, Navarra 2018

I expect refreshing acidity and delicate summer berry fruits from a Rosé. And the Señoria de Sarria Rosado gives just that. Summer berries, strawberries, just a touch of sweetness and plenty of mouth-watering acidity. Bodegas Sarria is based in Navarra, just north of Rioja, where the cooler than most parts of Spain climate offers ideal growing conditions. Sarria are based in the northern part of this region, close to the famous town of Pamplona. At just £6.95 from The Wine Society, this is a great value glugger, just as easily partnering lighter food like salmon. - Colin Burbidge

IT27791 IT27791 Barbera d'Alba, GD Vajra 2017

A very grown-up way to enjoy tomato dishes, especially for deeper and richer concoctions. I’m in love with the freshness of this wine. It’s all about the texture – the fresh acidity is balanced by ripe and concentrated black-fruit flavours, as well as 14-16 months ageing in a mixture of French and Slavonian oak. It’s a wine I keep coming back to again and again for Italian dishes – another fine example of growing together and going together. - Peter Ranscombe

SH1192 SH1192 Half bottle of Solear Manzanilla, Barbadillo

High-acid soups like gazpacho need a high-acid wine like a Manzanilla or Fino sherry for balance. Fino and Manzanilla are the two driest types of sherry and are both made from the Palomino white grape, with Fino produced in the town of Jerez itself and Manzanilla in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, which is closer to the sea. Manzanilla sherries have a slight salty tang mixed in with their fresh green apple and lemon flavours, which I think works especially well with gazpacho soup and other tomato-based sauces. Barbadillo’s Solear is a reliable brand and is aged for six years before going on sale; it’s also marketed as an ideal match for fish and chips. - Peter Ranscombe

AL14171 AL14171 The Society’s Vin d’Alsace 2017

Wine of the week: Made expressly for The Wine Society by the fabled Hugel family – producers of fine wine since 1639 – this is the perfect introduction to the vinous delights of Alsace. A blend (a rarity in the region) of several noble varieties but chiefly sylvaner, it’s aromatic, creamy and complex with a long, dry, deeply satisfying finish. In short, it’s pretty much the perfect summer aperitif. - Jonathan Ray

SG1651 SG1651 Crémant du Jura Brut, Domaine de Montbourgeau NV

This is a stunning bargain bottle of bone-dry (zero dosage) French traditional method fizz from an appellation created in just 1995 that punches gloriously above its price. Orchard and white fruits ring with an urgency across saliva-inducing acidity, combining with wet stone minerality. No room for argument, this is a very good wine to drink with smoked salmon, seafood risotto, fish and chips or ceviche. - James Viner
