  1. Fontein Ridge Chenin Blanc 2016 - South African White Wine

    Fontein Ridge Chenin Blanc 2016

    Now £5.85

    Was £6.50

    £5.85

    There are many fountains across the world that are famed for their superb structures and magnificent displays. This is one such fountain, or 'fontein'.

    It wows the crowds with a fount of fruity flavours with ripe apricot, peach, pear and citrus streaming through the palate right through to the end of the show. It'll have you on your feet applauding before you realise you're stood in your living room and not at the Font de Canaletes.

  2. Fontein Ridge Pinotage Shiraz 2015 - South African White Wine

    Fontein Ridge Pinotage Shiraz 2015

    £5.85

    Modern winemakers often talk about having innovative ideas and that's because they know how important it is to bring new and fresh wines to you!

    Take this South African Pinotage and Shiraz blend for example. They call it 'Fontein Ridge' because it contains fountains of juicy tannins and ripe fruit flavours with hints of vanilla and chocolate on the nose. It's almost unbelievable how they get so much into such a small bottle!

    Though, if they wanted to take it one step further we wouldn't complain if they build an actual fountain of wine. Now THAT's what we'd call innovation...

  3. Le Bouquet de nos Vignes Blanc 2016 White Wine

    Le Bouquet de nos Vignes Blanc 2016

    Now £6.59

    Was £7.75

    £6.59

    Everyone knew Mademoiselle Renifler hated flowers. Insipid, fragile little hussies! She much preferred fruit; the ripe evening colour of white peaches; crisp apples; the languid perfection of almonds*.Why then, when she fell ill, did so many people send flowers? She could cope with the malady, but all those bunches of wilting blooms...

    Luckily, her neighbours knew better. They toyed with sending a fruit basket, but knew she was too frail to eat. So, being vignerons, they fashioned a wine, bringing together the mademoiselle's favourite fruit flavours. 'Our bouquet', they called it in jest. She loved it! So much so, she not only survived the illness, but lived to a ripe old age!

    *Which are fruit, by the way.

    Marianne le Pétale was, without question, the most beautiful girl in La Vicomté. There was no doubt. Once she turned twenty she would be Flower Queen. Everyone agreed. It would be a travesty were she not. There was just one problem. Marianne had terrible Hay Fever*. And being Flower Queen meant being garlanded with blooms.

    Happily, a group of quick-thinking vignerons suggested a solution. Rather than gathering blossoms to celebrate Marian's investiture, they fashioned a wine. A wine bursting with fragrance, shimmering with deep berry colours and the violet tints of Marianne's eyes. A wine as vibrant and exuberant as the flowers that would otherwise have been presented. "Our bouquet", they commented, and winked, as the beautiful Marianne donned her crown.

    *That's why she was sometimes a bit sniffy.

  5. Viña Leyda Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    Viña Leyda Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    The Humboldt Current. What can you say? It's a Pacific Ocean current that runs along the coast of Chile that, being an upwelling current, pushes cold, nutrient-rich water from the bottom of the ocean to the top, resulting in the current's ecosystem being the most productive of its kind in the world!

    It accounts for 20% of the world's fish catches and, if that's not enough, then it brings cold, wet wind to coastal wine regions like the Leyda Valley. The resulting cool climate brings a longer ripening season, so greater quality and complexity.

    Good news indeed for this juicy, red-fruit-driven Pinot Noir, which ends up with perfectly-balanced tannin and acidity that fill the mouth with radiant succulence. Well done, Humboldt Current!

  6. IGP Cotes De Thongues Rosé Wine 2016 Vintage

    IIGP Cotes De Thongues Rosé "Le Fil A Tongs" 2016

    Now £7.65

    Was £8.50

    £7.65

    This delicate Rosé wine is composed of a mixture of Grenache and Cinsault grapes to create its wonderful flavours. On the nose it has intricate floral notes and pink grapefruit confer on this vintage freshness and elegance.

  7. Sole Shiraz Feteasca Neagra

    Bucharest born Henri Coanda invented the jet engine in 1910. Now the jet engine has done some handy things, but what's most imprtant to us is it got wine makers get off their bottoms and visit lots of other producers.

    This red is one such beneficary of steel canary riding wine makers (See winery information below). It's a blend of the international grape Shiraz and local Romanian Feteasca Neagra. Propelled by cherry, wild strawberry and cranberry flavours. Fuelled by smooth tannin and fresh acidity. It's a wine that rockets far beyond the usual plane* fare.

    *All puns intended.

  8. Luis Alegre Rosado Flores Spanish Rosé Wine

    Luis Alegre Rosado Flores 2016

    Now £8.08

    Was £9.50

    £8.08

    This wine is like a Provençal rosé that has been randomly transported to the hills of Rioja Alavesa, maybe by some freak whirlwind, like in The Wizard of Oz, into a foreign land. But, far from being an unwanted guest, the team at Bodegas Luis Alegre proudly declare "it has a beautiful, salmon-pink colour and enticing, subtle aromas of red fruits and wild flowers, as found in the best rosé from Provence". We couldn't have put it better ourselves.

  9. Mencia Alma de Tinto Mencia

    Alma de Tinto Mencia 2016

    Now £8.29

    Was £9.75

    £8.29

    Tucked away in the mountains of Spain's wild North West, hard up against the topmost corner of Portugal, Monterrei is one of Iberia's tiniest, and least known wine producing regions. Mencia is the grape native to that rugged part of the world, and, as far as we're aware, found nowhere else. The wine it produces is appropriately wild and brambly, dark and intense, but full of bright, fresh fruit that pulls it up just this side of brooding. A walk on the wild side with a spring in its step.

  10. Casa Lluch Verdil Spanish White Wine

    Casa Lluch Verdil 2015

    Now £8.29

    Was £9.75

    £8.29

    This dry, delicate and very endearing Spanish white from an almost unheard of grape - Verdil - reminds one a little of Sauvignon Blanc but that's to sell its individuality short.

    If we were to make a music video to describe this wine, we would film a cowboy, chopping a pineapple seductively in an oasis in the vivid sunshine of the Arizona desert, with the chirping of crickets emanating from the lush vegetation and someone spraying themselves with a hose in the background.

    Why? Because this wine is simultaneously dry, refreshing, sexy, herby, zippy and evocative. See for yourself!

  11. Le Malbec Rose Wine 2012 Vintage France

    Le Malbec Rosé 2015

    Now £8.29

    Was £9.75

    £8.29

    This wine is like an onion. OK it won't make you cry, and it isn't spherical (bear with us here), but... it has the pretty pink/golden colour of onion skin, layer upon layer of crisp, mildly spicy loveliness and is the cornerstone of many a successful meal.

    Don't try putting it on a wooden board and roughly chopping it à la Jamie Oliver, though; that would probably result in much pain, glass everywhere and will more than likely ruin most kitchen knives.

  12. Oveja Blanca Muscat white wine

    Oveja Blanca Muscat 2016

    Now £8.29

    Was £9.75

    £8.29

    If Spanish wine regions were bands, you could say that Rioja is Dire Straits - nobody's going to argue if you put Sultans of Swing on and nobody is going to argue if you bust out some velvety Rioja. But... sometimes you want something a bit more, ooh, Leftfield?

    In that case, Release the Pressure with Oveja Blanca Muscat - it's from that least classic of regions, Uclés, from cool vineyards at 700-900 metres altitude. Like Leftfield's tribal rhythms and canopy of electronic weirdness, this is vivifying in its freshness, interweaving lychees, grapefruit and rose petals. If this doesn't get you to your feet, nothing will.

    High up in the sky, a worried-looking coyote is clinging to a faltering Acme ‘Mars-or-Bust’ space rocket. ‘Bust’ is the clear winner. Far below him is a crazy quilt of cartoon farmland, and his look turns to one of resignation as he realises that as soon as he's fallen into it, the rocket will follow, landing on his head. Never mind, coyote, at least you're landing in Moisès Virgili's wonderfully higgledy-piggledy vineyards in Tarragona, and you can now spend your days happily running round tending to the differing needs of all the little plots, and making this aromatic, white fruited, refreshing and entirely Mediterranean organic white. It's got to be better than the Grand Canyon!

  14. Blau Mari Spanish Red Wine 2014

    Blau Marí 2015

    Now £8.40

    £8.40

    To be a good teacher, it's important to understand your class, its dynamic, who's disruptive, who's the quiet genius etc., and to respond accordingly. Well, winemaker Moisès Virgili does the same thing with his Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnatxa vines.

    He says "The vineyard blocks are small and idiosyncratic. Some face the sea, others don't, and the soil is different from one row to another, so we treat them all individually'. This approach coaxes out all the refined, noble black fruit of the Cabernet and the lush red fruit of the Garnatxa and combines them perfectly in the winery to create an A* wine.

  15. Jean-Luc Colombo Rose ‘Les Pins Couches’

    Jean-Luc Colombo Rosé 'Les Pins Couches' 2016

    Now £8.50

    Was £10.00

    £8.50

    This crisp, spicy rosé shares many traits with its nutty namesake detective, Colombo. They both have a decided twinkle in their eye and a deceptively lightness of touch that belies a lovely depth.

    And, whilst we couldn't rightly claim that they both smell of crunchy red cherries and delicate spice, we can definitely say that they both have a memorable finish that, just when you think it's over, leans and intones 'just one more thing'...

  16. Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Graciano Rosé 2016

    Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Graciano Rosé 2016

    Now £8.50

    Was £10.00

    £8.50

    Hear the word 'tandem' and you'll think: two lovers (or maybe just good friends), pedalling together on a bicycle made for two. But in Spanish 'tandem' means "at last!" And while the winemaking team would love you to believe 'tandem' refers to the realisation (at last) of their dream to make such a chilled-out wine, it actually refers to the phrase often exclaimed at the end of the day when the bottle is finally lifted from the fridge.

    Casual, ha! These rose-flower aromas, clipped flavours of forest berries, and hints of sun-kissed red cherry don't happen by accident. It's exhausting, making something this perfectly laid back! Of course, enjoying it is far easier...

  17. Marvelous Blue 2015 Red Wine

    Marvelous Blue 2015

    Now £8.78

    £8.78

    A saxophone in a lonely back street. An early morning trumpet fanfare. A piano tinkling in a shadowy bar. There's something pure in those sounds. Unapologetic. But music is about connection. Bringing things together. While they might be able to hold their own, there's always the sense an instrument playing alone is calling out for friends.

    And so! Grapes. Brilliant stand alone performers, unashamed. But now and again, don't you feel, they just want to join the band? If it wasn't what they wanted, it's unlikely this reunion of classic Bordeaux varieties would hit such high notes. Blueberry, cassis, tobacco, cedar. Ah one, two, ah one two three four...

  18. Marvelous Red 2015 Red Wine

    Good jazz is all about balance. Blending. Just the right amount of this, just the right amount of that. It's also about taking a little creative risk now and then. Of course, that could mean things go wrong. But when things go right, wow! That just gets your feet tapping.

    Take this ensemble of Mediterranean varieties. Good soloists, all. But brought together under the baton of an inspired winemaker, well. You better get your dancing shoes. And, of course, creativity is nothing without structure. So, let the old bush vine Cinsault handle that, while the other players go to town. Cherry, rose petals and chalk. Music to the tongue!

    This Slovenian Sauvignon Blanc is made using eco-friendly methods. Its soft palate offers delightful flavours of lemon, grapefruit, apples and hints of blackcurrants.

  21. Cheverny Blanc 'Les Bruyeres' 2015 White Wine

    Cheverny Blanc 'Les Bruyeres' 2015

    Now £8.93

    Was £10.50

    £8.93

    The beautiful Loire Valley has long been famous for goat cheese. (Or is it goat's cheese? Or goats cheese? Goats' cheese maybe?) But one cheese in particular, preciously guarded by the locals that produce it, is esteemed above all others. The reason, it's lately become clear, is that the goats responsible are fed purely on a diet of heather (or Bruyeres, in French).

    The challenge was to find a wine that went perfectly with such a delicious nibble. Something peary, appley, honeyed at the edge, and refreshing enough to cut through the creamy delight! A contest was launched, and ambitious winemakers from miles around set to blending the perfect tipple. The prize, of course, a goat. Made out of cheese. Decorated with garlands of heather.

  22. Stefanini Soave DOC Il Selese

    Stefanini Soave DOC Il Selese 2015

    Now £8.93

    Was £10.50

    £8.93

    Stefanini Soave is made from the Garganega grape. the regions indegeous varietal. The colour of the wine is straw yellow with greenish reflections. On the nose it is delicate and flowery, with notes of elderberry and hawthorn, together with juicy sensations of ripe peach, apricot and tropical fruits. It gracefully reveals the typical white flowers and almond mark of the Garganega variety. On the palate it is dry, medium-bodied and smooth with a pleasant long mineral finish.

  23. Wageck Riesling 'Green Label' 2016 German White Wine

    Weingut Wageck Fundament 'Green Label' Riesling 2016

    Now £8.93

    Was £10.50

    £8.93

    They say opposites attract. And attraction is the basis of love. The fundament, you could say. It's perhaps fitting then that Frau Wageck was so different from her husband. He was thickset and hirsute; she was all angles. Knobbly knees and cheekbones you could serve cheesecake with. However, she was incredibly goofy.

    She was so goofy, in fact, that her teeth didn't meet and she found eating increasingly difficult. Dentistry in Pfalz not being very advanced, Frau Wageck turned to the winery. Could they help? Of course! They made a Riesling as structured as she was, with the same up front fruitiness. But they underpinned all that with zippiness that soon had her sucking her teeth back in! Problem solved.

  24. Lothian 'Isobel' Rosé 2016

    Lothian 'Isobel' Rosé 2016

    Now £8.93

    Was £10.50

    £8.93

    Isobel was different. She had bearing. Poise. She commanded the room effortlessly, without intent. Perhaps it shouldn't have been a surprise when the genealogist knocked on the winery door and announced Isobel descended from royalty. He assured her he wanted nothing for the information, other than proof his findings were true.

    They went with the age old test. But rather than a pea, they placed a ripe mourvèdre grape beneath Isobel's mattress. The following morning, there it was. Perfectly uncrushed. To mark the news, they turned the rest of the grapes to Rosé. A celebration of pomegranates, sweet anise and red fruits, as elegant and blushing as the princess herself.

  25. Domaine Joel Delaunay Touraine Gamay 2016

    Domaine Joël Delaunay Touraine Gamay 2016

    Now £9.00

    £9.00

    Years ago, Touraine wine was transported from vineyard to market on barges, pulled along the river Loire by patient, stoic horses. It saddened Thierry to see the horses plod along the towpath, their muscles straining with effort, their breath huffing and puffing with the work-like rhythm of steam engines.

    What's needed, thought Thierry, is lighter wine. Then the horses won't be so exhausted. So he set about producing a soft, supple red, redolent with the scents and flavours of the riverbank. Strawberries, wild plums, and sun ripe cherries. Incredibly easy to enjoy, and so much easier on the horses.

    Traditionally, Navarran winemakers wore formal clothing. Worsted trousers, thick cotton shirts, a waistcoat and jacket. Women or men! Given the blistering summers, it made work horrendous. Indeed, for decades, the wines of the region were recognisable through their slight briney edge, put down to the distant influence of Atlantic breezes by those unaware of the truth.

    The uncomfortable tradition persisted until one brutally hot year when levels of perspiration among the crew were such the wines this time were ruined. Disaster. But finally the old costume was abandoned. At the news, workers celebrated by cracking into a barrel of mountain Garnacha as vibrant and expressive as the clothes they were free to choose, at last! Or 'Tandem!' as they say in Spain. You can enjoy it wearing whatever you want!

    Planting, pruning, picking, perfecting. The winery was constantly manic! Surely, it couldn't do the wine any good if everyone was in such a jumble. Other than Bes. The winery's Pyrenean Mountain Dog. He was a pillar of calmness. It irked Jean. He was determined to prove it was possible to make a wine without getting stressed.

    Quietly, he went about making a bright, laid-back rose. He knew pressure was good, but only gentle pressure that crushes grapes just enough to bring out flavour, proffer a beautiful tinge. The result was perfect, chilled. And as he'd been 'As calm as Bes' when he made it, he jumbled the letters to make-up a name. But that's between you, Jean and Bes. No-one else has had the time to work the anagram out.

    Smell plays a massive part in what you taste. That's why when your nose is all bunged up food tastes bland. If you don't believe us pinch your nose and eat a mouthful of banana, you'll notice that it tastes muted, but when you release your nostrils you get a whoosh of banana flavour.

    The Ribbonwood Sauvignon Blanc is the epitome of aromatic; drinking a glass of this wine should be renamed "arom-ercise" as it's a veritable nostril workout.

    £9.35

    Based in a region with a strong winemaking history, and recently overhauled by a company that is investing time, love and money into it, the Mediterra Winery is fighting fit and making some cracking wines from indigenous grape varieties. Made from the rarely-seen Vilana grape, this white is super crispy clean and exhibits a host of tropical and citrus fruits. Its exuberant summery fruitiness is ideal for beach barbecues. Try with BBQd red snapper.

    Château Unang Blanc 2015

    Now £9.60

    Was £12.00

    £9.60

    James King, the genius behind this delicate white wine, should change his name to James, King of Elegance. Of course, a title as grand as this must be earned...

    But we think he's rather deserving. James pours his blood, sweat and tears (not literally) in to his wines so that they deliver the perfect balance of flavour and refreshment for everyone to enjoy. The Chateau Unang Blanc, for example, offers subtle hints of star anise and paprika on the nose before fruit takes over on the palate. White peach and pineapple flavours are most prominent and follow through to the finish.

    All hail the King of Elegance!

  31. Hunawihr Pinot Blanc French White Wine

    Pinot Blanc Hunawihr 2016

    Now £9.78

    Was £11.50

    £9.78

    Interesting Fact Number 1: Did you know that historically Pinot Blanc was used in both Burgundy and Champagne and still can be used in both today, although it rarely is? We reckon those big cry-babies just couldn't make anything as good as this Alsace Pinot Blanc.

    Interesting Fact Number 2: Pinot Blanc is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir. Although we like to imagine that this means the grapes have little webbed toes, hunchbacks or pips on the outside, really it just means that they come out white!

  32. Chateau Unang Rosé Wine

    Château Unang Rosé 2015

    Now £9.78

    Was £11.50

    £9.78

    A cool glass of rosé is fast becoming the go-to summer wine and this pale coloured drop from Château Unang shows us exactly why the pink is so popular!

    Strawberry aromas lead on the nose and are accompanied by notes of lychee. The palate offers thirst-quenching citrus flavours of grapefruit and lemon, quickly followed by goosberry. And with a minerality on the finish, this refreshing drop of rosé is perfect for sharing during those long summer evenings in the garden.

  33. Famille Cattin Pinot Noir

    £9.98

    Let us set the scene: there's a family relay race that spans across hundreds of years. Each member of the Cattin family hurtles their way through acres of countryside and narrowly weaves between the vineyards, determined to hand on the baton. But as they approach the finish line and their hands connect, they exchange not a thin shaped piece of metal but a deliciously vibrant bottle of Pinot Noir. Behold... the Voegtlinshoffen Games! With luscious red fruit aromas and soft tannins, we advise you to sprint to one of our shops and keep the baton going.

    ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015*

    Founded by brothers Peter and Mark Saturno, after they tired of city life in The Big Apple and decided to return home to their homeland of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills, Australia. Whilst we are happy that they were able to retreat from the frenetic pace of New York, we’re also very pleased that they started making wine in this idyllic spot.

    Macclesfield is a tad warmer than the rest of the cool climate region of Adelaide, and this means that the Saturno brothers are able to produce wines with great depth and intensity, as well as the finesse and poise, like this rich, raspberry and game-flavoured belter. A rather nice homecoming, we say.

    Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepere Rosé 2016

    Now £10.35

    Was £11.50

    £10.35

    This wine is a serendipitous find for Oddbins and a lovely drop it is too. It is the sister wine to Château Guilhem Cuvée Prestige Rouge, which was suggested to us via The Listing (where you can recommend wines for us to stock that you have discovered on holiday). Where the Prestige Rouge is full-on and chocolatey, the rosé is a delicate flower, with aromas of rose hip, wild strawberries and white peaches. Made entirely organically, this is an all-natural discovery. Happy days.

    Herr Wageck was one of the more notable residents of Pfalz. A lovely man. But with the heaviest, thickest eyebrows ever. So heavy, in fact, they began to weigh down his forehead, until they literally drooped over his eyes. This was no good! Wageck couldn't see his beloved, stick-thin wife.

    His neighbours set to solving the problem. Barbers failed. Gardeners failed. Lumberjacks gave up. No matter how often the bushy protuberances were cut, they simply grew back thicker. In the end, Wageck turned to the winery to see if they could help. They fashioned a Pinot Noir as pleasant and rounded as him, of such surprising persistence just one sip had him raising his eyebrows! Problem solved.

  37. Roche de Bellene 'Bellenos' Rosé 2016

    Roche de Bellene 'Bellenos' Rosé 2016

    Now £10.63

    Was £12.50

    £10.63

    Legend has it that to place one's hand on the fabled Rock of Bellene is to know more of the world. It's subtle, let's say that. Rest your palm on the ancient carved symbols, and you'll feel a shift. Nothing major. Hardly tangible. Then you have to wait. The world comes more alive. Your senses sharpen. Things will have more colour.

    It was painstaking, but Nicolas pressed every grape that went into his rose to the carving, intrigued as to how it would enhance the wine. Now, only you can decide. Take a sip. Just a wine, right? But that fresh scent of herbs after early dew. The hint of cut strawberries. Peaches ripening in morning sun... Only a wine? Are you sure?

  38. Vallegarcia 'Miriade' Viognier 2016 Spanish White Wine

    £10.63

    Nothing could be more exhilarating than galloping along astride his beloved horse 'Miriade'. Or so Garcia thought. Until one day, cantering through the hillside scrub, a most extraordinary perfume enveloped him. Honeysuckle, blossom, exotic fruits... Only a princess could smell so alluring.

    In a trance, he followed the scent to a thicket of thorns and forced his way through. There, beyond the spiky wall, was a vineyard, dripping with grapes and lavish with scent. And then he heard a voice. A beautiful maiden, trapped since childhood. Rescued from the thorns by the astonishing fragrance. This wine celebrates their marriage, but beware. It's unlikely anyone will rescue you from its spell.

  39. Merino Syrah

    Merino Movi Limari Syrah 2014

    Now £10.80

    Was £12.00

    £10.80

    Don't have the wool pulled over your eyes, this is not an advert for merino jumpers. However, this Syrah would certainly keep you warm if you walked the wind swept hills of this wine's home in the Limari Valley, Chile. Rich yet elegant black berry and raspberry flavours, followed by Syrah's typical sweet spice and peppery character on the finish. Also, if you think you can taste violets- you'd be tasting the tiny addition (5%) of the white grape Viognier. No need to feel sheepish- try it out!

  40. Merino Chardonnay White Wine

    Merino Movi Limari Chardonnay 2014

    Now £10.80

    Was £12.00

    £10.80

    Born in the Limari Valley, this wine shares this land with the 'Piedras Tacitas'; ancient stones marked by the Diaguita people. These stones are carved with holes representing the constellations of the starry night sky. This stellar white wine emits lemon, tangerine and apple fruits flavours. Radiating juicy, mineral characters lead to honey and spicy oak notes. An astronomically good value white wine!

  41. First Creek Hunter Valley Semillon White Wine

    First Creek Hunter Valley Semillon 2014

    Hunter Valley in New South Wales might not be the first place you'd think of if you wanted to plant a vineyard, even though it is Australia's oldest wine region. The weather's all wrong, the summer sky is frequently covered by cloud and it gets most of its yearly rainfall in three months of unrelieved sogginess. But there's no truth, however, in the rumour that it's been twinned with St. Helens.

    First Creek Semillon is a wonderful expression of a classic Hunter Valley grape, light and imbued with citrus and orange blossom, but developing weight and softness over five years bottle ageing. But let's not wait, eh, it's fairing up a bit, we should enjoy it while we can!

    We all accumulate stuff - books, records, candelabras...whatever. Every house needs just one more shelf. Liz Silkman is the same with silverware. She'd already been gathering the gongs before 2015, when her First Creek wines garnered 30 awards in one year alone! That's two-and-a-half per month, or one every twelve days. That's more often than your humble scribe goes to the pub! Could she even pop out to lunch without coming home with a trophy?

    In deference to her shelving problems, Oddbins hereby awards Liz the Wandsworth Chardonnay Eggcup for services rendered to immaculately oaked, fresh white wine which expresses consummately its varietal characteristics. Might be at the engravers for a while, though...

    Like the Rebel Alliance in the stupendously popular Star Wars films, this wine is part of the renegade, Cru Bourgeois. A category in Haut-Médoc that rails against the tyrannical 1855 quality classifications of Bordeaux.

    This wine's robust blackcurrant fruits, rounded body, rounded 'chewy' tannins. (cue Chewbacca's mighty roar), and subtle mint finish takes a Han Solo blast at Darth Vader and his hapless 'couldn't-hit-a-barn' crap shot croonies. Poor old Stormtroopers! You should join the Cru Bourgeois side of the Force.

    'Tis an admirable, and difficult thing, we think, to make a poised, distinctive and balanced Pinot Blanc, but that is what Philipp Wittmann, of Westhofen in southwest Germany, has done. It is a grape that is notably lacking in acidity and needs its gentle nutty and orchard fruit flavours patiently coaxed out. But then Mr Wittmann does have 350 years of family history making wines in Westhofen's fertile hills on his side. Still, pretty impressive all the same.

    At Oddbins Towers we call this The Pink Panther. It bears no resemblance to the sneaky cartoon character in the title sequence of the film and its winemaker is certainly not a bumbling fool like Inspector Jacques Clouseau.

    No, we call this The Pink Panther because it's a diamond, a precious and brilliant diamond with a delicate pink hue. In fact this rosé wine is so good and has proven so popular we've had to employ Cato to protect it in our warehouse. He's just so unpredictable; half our staff are off with injuries.

    Stand on the steep slopes of the Schauer vineyards and absorb the view. Breathtaking. A landscape with edges like cut crystal. But imagine 300 million years ago. An Earth in turmoil. Rock and oceans, molten minerals. A world growing into the shape we know it, suffering the agonies of adolescence.

    Of course, it would only look chaotic if you sped up millions of decades to play out like a film. But then, try this wine and you won't really get a sense of the chaotic alchemy that went into its making either. Three varieties roiling, mixing, berry fruit and spice aroma. Take a sip. Sense the swirl of time.

    A Mediterranean styled blended red wine, made up of alternative varietals produced in South Africa. Rich with flavours of pomegranate, cloves, pepper, ripe plums and masses of piquant spice before moving through to a lean, savoury finish.

    There is a remarkable amount of stereotypes that grow up like weeds around what we drink. Rosé suffers from labels like 'summery' or 'girlie' and crap like that. A wine like this one deserves to stand free of such boring and dated imagery. Can't a wine stand on its own two flavoursome feet? This rosé doesn't wear high heels, it's got a pair of trainers on. The kind you wear on your day off when all the work is done and it's time for a glass of something crisp and refreshing!
