Grand Mayne Côtes de Duras Sauvignon 2015, South West France (£9.95 from the vineyard)
A wine that manages to be crisp and tangy, yet quite rich at the same time. Lots of zesty apple and citrus fruit with green characters – herbs, grass, nettles – to add further interest, but there’s a core of ripe flesh that make you think this is for more solid fishy fare than just simple seafood. B+

Domaine du Grand Mayne Côtes de Duras Réserve White 2012, South West France (£12.95 from the vineyard)
Sadly corked – shame as the wine behind the taint looked good…
