North & South America: 'wines of the moment'

2012 Catena Zapata 'High Mountain Vines' Malbec – Mendoza (13.5%) - Quite expensive but definitely a superior version of Malbec. £12.79 WineMark
2012 Viñalba Malbec-Syrah Bodegas Fabre – Patagonia (14.5% abv) - Very good value and fairly serious too. £8.98 Asda

2012 Tannat Bodega Garzón (14% abv) - Again fairly expensive but a good example of this solid characterful red. £12.99 The Vineyard (Belfast).

2014 Casablanca Valley Sauvignon Blanc Viña Errázuriz (13% abv) - Pretty classic Sauvignon style, more elegant too. £8 Sainsbury's “Taste the Difference.”
2014 Secano Estate Pinot Noir Rosé - Leyda Valley (13.5% abv) - One of my favourite rosés around: deep coloured, fruity and creamy, full-on and dry. £9 Marks & Spencer

2013 The Honourable Riesling Charles Smith – Washington State (12.5% abv) - Quite classy dry Riesling style, zingy and lime fruity. £12 Marks & Spencer
2012 Buena Vista Zinfandel – Sonoma County, California (13.5% abv) - Forget all those nasty sweet Zin rosés etc, this is the real deal: very red, rich and earthy. £13 Marks & Spencer
