Montes Sauvignon Blanc 2009, Curicó, Chile (£6.50 www.qpwines.com)
Clean and fresh, slight lime and lemon jelly, zippy and zesty, with a touch of river pebble, a simple but honest style. C+

Montes Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Leyda, Chile (£9.40 www.qpwines.com)
A mixture of lushness, warmer and rounder, a touch of green pepper, plum and ripe citrus, maybe has lost a little freshness, but still pretty tasty. B

Snoqualmie Chardonnay 2008, Columbia Valley, Washington State, USA (~£11.50 Stratford’s Wine Agencies)
Heavy vanilla fudge, crystallised pineapple, oily, tinned fruit cocktail syrup, rather heavy and clumsy style, not very appealing. 0

Viña Mar Chardonnay Reserva 2008, Casablanca, Chile (£9.99 www.qpwines.com)
A much fresher, fruitier wine with ripe apple, peach and plum, touches of cashew nut and a creamy oatmeal finish. B(+)
