Yalumba Oxford Landing 2007 Chardonnay

This is terrific for the price, with nice crisp fruit flavours in a bright and zingy wine that has seen just a touch of oak. If you like your chardonnays fresh and clean with rich, tropical fruit flavours on the palate then you'll enjoy this. $8.

Rutherglen Estates 2006 Mourvedre Shiraz Greenache

It's easy to fall in love with this juicy, fruity red from a winery that specialises in Rhone varieties. You'll find hints of pepper and spice, some savoury notes and subtle oak - but most of all this is gloriously gluggable with pizza or pasta. $16.
