Miguel Torres Santa Digna Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Curicó, Chile (£7.99 Bablake Wines, Big Wines, Celtic Wines, Cotswold Vintners, Lewis and Cooper, Partridges, Portland Wines)
Crisp, restrained but confident style, with grassy lemon, grapefruit and rhubarb flavours set against pithy river pebble minerality. S-

The Society’s New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Marlborough (£8.95 The Wine Society)
Tangy citrus set alongside richer guava and passionfruit flesh, decent herby aromas, and a touch of stony character, but just a bit too rich for real class. B

Stoneburn Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Marlborough, New Zealand (£7.25 The Wine Society)
A touch of the citrus here, but also stewed (Bramley) apple giving sweet and sour tension – almost Mâcon-like Sauvignon! B+
