Kir-Yianni Kitma Yianakohori Hills 2012 (Greece)
$19.95 (Vintages #419234)
If you want to try something different in the way of a red wine, pick up a bottle of Kir-Yianni Kitma Yianakohori Hills. This blend of Xinomavro, Merlot and Syrah is dense purple-ruby in colour with a spicy, cedary nose of plums and black cherries; medium to full-bodied, it's dry and firmly structured with ripe tannins.
Food match: barbecued meats; aged cheddar

Villa Maria Cellar Selection Pinot Gris 2015 (New Zealand)
$19.95 (Vintages #447490)
Regular readers of these wine reviews will be familiar with my indifference to Pinot Gris but recently I tasted this one that could make me change my mind. Almost water white in colour but it has lots of flavour. The nose is minerally, peach pit and you experience well-extracted flavours of white peach and lemon. **** (88)
Food match: cold chicken; salmon

Pala I Fiori Vermentino di Sardegna 2015 (Sardinia)
$14.95 (Vintages #52068)
Pale straw in colour with a smoky, minerally nose of apples with a floral grace note; Medium-bodied and dry, the wine has great length finishing on a grapefruit zest note. ****½ (89)
Food match: seafood; grilled halibut
