Tasting table

Two sips from the southern Rhône and South Australia

Caves Saint-Pierre, 2006


Supplier: Thierry's

Apple and citrus notes burst from this pale gold, summer slurper. Clean and fresh on the palate with a subtle minerality. Great value for the around-£5 price point. RE

Shingleback McLaren Vale

Cellar Door Shiraz 2005

Supplier: Raisin Social

Lovely packaging and wine that's equally classy. A smooth, cool and velvety wine that has an elegance you might not expect. (I expected more viscosity.) Try it slightly chilled. GH
