Taste the Difference Côtes du Jura Chardonnay 2016, France, 12%, Sainsbury, down £11 to £9 until 11 June

Unlike any other Chardonnay you have tasted.  Delicate floral notes with a peachy palate, then pure, linear, minerally power.  Team it with shellfish.

Zenato Villa Flora 2018, Lugana, Italy, 13%, Waitrose, down from £11.99 to £9.49 until 11 June

Delicate and floral with fresh honeydew melon fruit and a gentle touch of honey across the palate. Totally dry and perfect with summer salads.

La Gioiosa Prosecco Rosado, Italy, 11%, Morrisons down from £10 to £7.50 until 18 June

Frothy, fun and full of juicy raspberry fruit.  Perfect for a sunny day in the garden.

Helderberg Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Stellenbosch, South Africa, 14%, Marks and Spencer down from £10 to £8

Part of the new wave of permanently lower prices at M&S, this is one to snap up. It is full of deep cassis and red berry fruits. Pour alongside roast meat.
