A handful of unoaked white wines

A wide variety of five good-value unoaked white wines originally featured on WineWriting.com on Facebook (more photos there):
The Winery of Good Hope Chardonnay 2021, South Africa (12.5% abv). Flavoursome textbook unoaked Chardonnay from the western Cape: £8.50 The Wine Society.
Tingleup Riesling 2021 Howard Park Wines, Great Southern Australia (12.5% abv). Far southwest Aus climate delivers this tasty lively complex dry Riesling: £9 Tesco 'Finest'.
The Society's Falanghina del Sannio 2021, Campania Italy (13.5% abv). Classy example of one of southern Italy's best kept secrets: £9.25 The Wine Society.
Filos Estate Assyrtiko Single Vineyard 2021, Greece (13% abv). Probably a one-off parcel so buy it if you see it: €10 Aldi Ireland.
Château Courac Laudun Côtes du Rhône Villages 2020 (14% abv). About £10 on offer The Wine Society, the '20 is now gone so keep an eye out for the 2021. Stylish weighty and different from most dry white wines on the shelf, made from the Clairette variety.
