LeftField Nelson Sauvignon Blanc ($14.65, reduced from $16.65)

One of our favourite NZ Sauvignon Blancs, it is less acidic with more tropical fruit than most of its counterparts. Easy drinking and a good shellfish companion.

Raymond Family Classic Chardonnay ($14.85, reduced from $16.85)

Lots of personality here, gentle and fresh with abundant tastes of oak, butter, vanilla, pears apples and melons, versatile and easy drinking. Pair with summer salads or just plain sipping.

ABV 13.5%, 5 g/L residual sugar.

Wits End Luna Shiraz ($15.95, reduced from $17.95)

Australia: McLaren Vale

Vivino Rating: 3.8

From the best Australian region for Shiraz, look for bold flavours of dark fruits, oak, vanilla and smoke. Dry but smooth and easy to drink, it pairs well with slightly spicy foods.

ABV 14.0%, 2 g/L residual sugar.

Banrock Station Pink Moscato Rose ($10.95, reduced from $12.45)

Australia: South Australia

Vivino Rating: 3.8

If you like a low alcohol wine in the summer heat or enjoy a sweeter wine with spicy foods then this one is for you. Terrific value.

ABV 6.0%, 121 g/L residual sugar.

Henry of Pelham Baco Noir VQA ($13.95, reduced from $15.95)

Canada: Niagara

Vivino Rating: 3.9

Last but definitely not least, Canada’s answer to Shiraz has put our own Baco Noir grape on the map.

Pronounced dark fruits, tobacco and oak with a slightly sweetish peppery finish make it an ideal pairing with grilled Korean style beef ribs.

ABV 13.0%, 17 g/L residual sugar.
