Wirra Wirra Mrs Wigley Moscato 2011, McLaren Vale, Australia (£9-£10 per 50cl Slurp, Oxford Wine Company, Flagship Wines, Oddbins, Whalley Wines, Amps Fine Wines)
Breakfast wine – think freshly crushed grapes and strawberries with topped up with Lucozade. Maybe could do with a little more zip, but alarming gluggable. B

Domaine du Tariquet ‘Les Dernières Grives’ IGP Côtes des Gascogne 2010, South West France (£13.95 The Wine Society for the 2009)
Manages to be voluptuous yet crisp, combining honeyed toffee apple and cooked apple richness with a more taut pine and herb freshness and pounce. Intense, but never too sweet, and beautifully balanced. S(+)

Las Moras Late Harvest Viognier 2009, San Juan, Argentina (£9.99 per 37.5cl Virgin Wines)
Gentle cooked apple, juicy, but almost underplays the exotic notes of Viognier in order to retain some citrussy freshness. The finish is a bit hard, but decent enough. B
