I prefer S-04 which is an English ale yeast. Montrachet is probably the last yeast I'd use. K1V-1116 or 71B-1122 would be good if you're set on using a wine yeast.

Lots of people like the German wheat strains - Wyeast 3068

I've had success using T-58. I'm sure WB-06 the dry wheat strain would work too. Since you're in Ireland I'm assuming it'd be easier for you get Fermentis yeast than American liquid yeasts, but maybe I'm wrong.

I've used just simple Youngs brand yeast in the past, turned out pretty good. You can pick it up at Wilcos.

I used lalvin EC-1118 with my first batch of apfelwein, so I'm not a professional...yet...so from a first timer who reads allot first, it could have been the juice I used, or any # of things, but mine turned out very un-apple tasting...I have read on here in a few spots that the EC-1118 can strip the fruity flavors out of your batches...so just a heads up on what I have found...but, of course, YMMV.

I've got everything to start up two more batches, except the yeasts...I'm going to look for the Montrachet and some Nottinghams I think...hopefully I can find them around here.

good luck.
