2013 The Ned Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough

( £9.99, 12.5%, Majestic, Waitrose )

Brent Marris’ well-distributed Sauvignon tends to be on a deal more often than not, but even at its full retail price it delivers in the glass, unfurling flavours of passion fruit, gooseberry and melon. Flavoursome stuff at a fair price.
