on the grapevine; SAM WYLIE-HARRIS ON... INVIGORATING WHITE WINES TO SIP THIS SUMMER.

WHEN the heat is on and a warm wind whips up, nothing spells summer like a sun-bleached white to dive into or chill out with and take it easy.

3 SAINSBURY'S TASTE THE DIFFERENCE SPANISH ALBARINO 2017, SPAIN (PS8.50, Sainsbury's) FOR a lasting sense of freshness, you can't go wrong with this coastal white from Galicia. There's a hint of sea spray behind its fresh, lemony acidity with floral scents lifted by a hint of apricot with lime, peach and apple flavours, mineral notes and a breezy, lifted finish. Delicious with anything plucked from the sea.

4 TESCO FINEST TINGLEUP RIESLING 2018, WESTERN AUSTRALIA (PS9, Tesco) WITH a lovely whiff of lemony, floral freshness, there's depth and intensity to the ripe citrusy, limey flavours of this wine, with hints of stone fruits complementing the citrus fruit and a dry, stony, minerally finish. Aromatic grapes thrive Down Under and this refreshing riesling is excellent on its own but even better with a spicy Thai noodle salad.

5 KALFU MOLU CHARDONNAY 2017, CASABLANCA VALLEY, CHILE (PS10.25, Frontier Wines) AN easy, breezy, cool-climate chardonnay, fresh and beautifully balanced. Tropical and citrus flavours vie for attention and blend with well-balanced acidity, oceanic notes and a lively, expressive finish. A great catch with smoked sweet chilli salmon.
