  1. Fontein Ridge Pinotage Shiraz 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Fontein Ridge Pinotage Shiraz 2015

    Now £5.85

    Was £6.50


    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...

  2. Gavi Miganego 2013 Vegan and Vegetarian White Wine

    Gavi Miganego 2013

    Now £6.75

    Was £7.75


    'Oranges and lemons say the bells of St Clements,' is how the old rhyme goes. The rhyme then proceeds to get extremely dark, terrorising children with threats of heads being chopped off. Which is a shame, because Oranges and Lemons could have made for a nice analogy for Gavi Mignanego, which also says oranges lemons.

    This white wine also says lightly honeyed lemon and apple, although there isn't a set of London bells that rhymes with apple. Do let us know if we're wrong on that one though.

  3. Viña Leyda Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    Viña Leyda Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    Now £7.50

    Was £10.00


    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!

  4. Red Wine Monte Das Promessas 2014

    Monte Das Promessas 2014

    Now £7.50

    Was £8.50


    From the acclaimed 'Best Young Winemaker of Portugal' and the name behind the success story that is Bons Ventos, comes Monte das Promessas, an extremely fruity wine, with elegant structure and a well-balanced and long aftertaste. Take a sip, smack your lips, gaze into its deep violet colour and breathe in the ripe berry fruit and floral notes, whilst humming along to the famous 'Ten Green Bottles'. We'll give you a starting point. Santos Lima wines are capable of producing the equivalent to 14 million bottles in their 400ha of vineyards...

    Ahem, 'there were 14 million bottles sitting on the wall...'

  5. Tannu Bianco Di Sicilia IGT Italian White Wine

    Tannu Bianco di Sicilia IGT 2014

    Now £8.00

    Was £9.50


    If you have a raw talent, let it shine. That's what we say. Subo had a talent, she let it shine: some would say the world's better for it. Likewise David Blaine: he knew he could sit in boxes and stuff to get people's attention and he did. Fair play.

    The producers of Tannu have recognised the raw talent of their Sicilian grapes, and know that they needn't taint them with pesticides, fertilisers or fancy techniques to make great wines: they know that, left to their own devices, the grapes produce flipping lovely, crisp, lemon and pineapple-scented beauties, just like this one. They are so right. Let it shine people, let it shine.

  6. Blau Cel 2016 Vegan and Vegetarian White Wine

    Blau Cel 2016

    Now £8.40

    Was £10.50


    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!

  7. Blau Mari 2015 Vegan and Vegetarian Red Wine

    Blau Marí 2015

    Now £8.40

    Was £10.50


    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.

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

    Jean-Luc Colombo Rosé 'Les Pins Couches' 2016

    Now £8.50

    Was £10.00


    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'...

  9. Rolling Hills Shiraz 2016 - Australian Red Wine

    Rolling Hills Shiraz 2016

    Now £8.75

    Was £9.75


    In the early 1980s people discovered the virtue of the Central Rangers. What would they be? You might rightly enquire. Well, political figures named Tony, Dave & Nick dawned in tight red, blue & yellow body suits mightily morphed their supposedly opposing parties into one giant amorphous blob of political apathy, intent on fighting the evils of Lord Zedd. That was the idea anyway but then there was some lying about uranium, some referendums and some student voters in Sheffield Hallam. After all that turmoil and well, incompetence the Central Rangers thought they better turn their hand to something else. They mighty morphed one more time and became the largest cool climate wine growing region in Australia. It appeared what the Central Rangers lacked in political aptitude they made up for in aiding Debbie Lauritz ripen the grapes for this incredible Shiraz; delivering a generous forest fruit flavoured palate with subtle spice and well-integrated use of oak.

    It turns out the region is called Central Ranges not Central Rangers, please disregard all previous information. No political figures were physically harmed in the making of this tasting note... Just their feelings.

  10. Rolling Hills Chardonnay 2016 - Australian White Wine

    Rolling Hills Chardonnay 2016

    Now £8.75

    Was £9.75


    In every sport there are individuals that transcend the game; football had Pele, boxing had Ali, in darts there was Phil the Power Taylor (we always thought he should have been called 'The Precision' power had very little to do with it) and Cooper's Hill Cheese-Rolling race there is Chris Anderson. 20 wins he’s had! Who knew a man could eat that much double Gloucester? We're not ones to judge but falling down a vertical slope in pursuit of a wheel of cheese that’s reaching speeds of 70mph doesn't seem to be the smartest way to welcome in the Spring. Surely, they could do something better with that hill.

    They should take a leaf out of Debbie Lauritz book and grow some cool climate Chardonnay. That way everyone can enjoy a beautiful white wine expressive of stone fruit with a creamy texture, opposed to a cheese that just smashed into a St John's Ambulance. Debbie Lauritz; the Chris Anderson of Central Ranges winemaking.

  11. Stefanini Soave DOC Il Selese

    Stefanini Soave DOC Il Selese 2015

    Now £8.93

    Was £10.50


    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.

  12. Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Graciano Rosé 2016 Vegan and Vegetarian Wine

    Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Graciano Rosé 2016

    Now £9.00

    Was £10.00


    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...

  13. Cabaret Rosé 2016

    Cabaret Rosé 2016

    Now £9.00

    Was £10.50


    ***Silver at Decanter 2014***

    It's one thing to keep passing a business down to your children, it's quite another to keep that line going for 700 years. Yet this is exactly what the wine-making Sumeire family, in Provence, has done.

    Located at the foot of the magnificent Montagne Sainte-Victoire, which inspired artists like Cézanne, this historic winery has produced a classic Provencal rosé: feather-light and elegant, with fresh strawberry and cherry blossom notes.

  14. Manuka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine New Zealand

    Manuka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Now £9.75

    Was £10.75


    All over Marlborough unusual geysers spurt manuka honey high into the air. Although initially this was a sticky nightmare for the locals, since manuka honey joined goji berries and pink Himalayan rock salt in the mystical list of superfoods, the locals have embraced the manuka springs.

    The world renowned Sherwood Estate makes this wonderful Sauvignon Blanc in their honour. A veritable fruit salad up the nose, gooseberries, limes, guavas and passionfruits, followed by a tangy lemony slap on the taste buds.

  15. Chateau Unang Rose 2015

    Château Unang Rosé 2015

    Now £9.78

    Was £11.50


    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.

  16. Domaine de Coudoulet Pinot Noir 2016 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Domaine de Coudoulet Pinot Noir 2016

    Now £10.00

    Was £10.50


    Sometimes wine makers of yore would blame a poor crop yield on the Harrowingly Hairy Harvest Hobgoblin. The story goes that this horrid creature would send a plague of sickenss and lethargy amongst the vineyard labourers in the early hours of morn.

    Luckily with the modern technology of today Oddbins Science Dept has disproved this existance of these grape gremlins and led to the scientific study of the Hang Over. Maybe if these workers were moderately drinking this beautifully light fruity red wine they wouldn't feel the need to concoct these nasty gnomes of ficitional folk lore.

    No goblins were harmed in the making or drinking of this wine. Some facts(if any), have been somewhat playfully distorted.

  17. Ormadei Malbec 2016 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Ormadei Malbec 2016

    Now £10.75

    Was £12.75


    Bang! In your face! Let's not pussyfoot around, people like Argentine Malbec for its raw, heavyweight, power; and that's what Ormadei delivers by the sackfull, but that's not all. Big hitting, yes, but rich, fruity and smooth with it. Like getting punched in the mouth by a black cherry fist in a velvet glove. In a good way.

  18. Boer and Brit Field Marshall 2014

    Boer & Brit Field Marshall 2014

    Now £11.25

    Was £12.50


    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.

  19. Rogers & Rufus Rosé 2016 Vegan and Vegetarian Wine

    Rogers & Rufus Rosé 2016

    Now £11.50

    Was £12.50


    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!

  20. Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Argentina Red Wine

    Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Now £11.50

    Was £12.75


    This Cabernet Sauvignon was created in the lofty heights of the Cafayate Valley in the remote Salta region of Argentina. Sounds like a good location for a secret base for a league of superheroes. Lucky for us the two brothers who made this red are not muscle bound meat heads with loads of gadgets and outlandish wardrobes.

    Rafael and Osvaldo Domingo are our kind of heroes- taking grapes and shaping them into amazing wine. Rippling with raspberries, cocoa, and spices. This is the kinda full-bodied wine that'll land on your balcony dressed in red with a masterplan to save the world, fix everything in town and make sure you're safely tucked in bed before midnight.

  21. Kopfensteiner Blaufrankisch Red Wine

    Kopfensteiner Blaufrankisch Eisenberg 2014

    Now £11.90

    Was £14.00


    Thomas Kopfensteiner is oddly impressed by soil. So impressed, in fact, that he took over a patch of land in Austria because its soil was forbiddingly dense with clay. And then he was bowled over by another spot because its meagre-looking soil was full of slate and thick with iron deposits. It's hardly Gardener's World, is it? Yet by beavering about endlessly in all this gunge, he coaxed wholly natural and earthy grapes from the first patch, and concentrated and minerally fruit from the second.

    Alchemy! And then wizardry, as he put them together and hey presto! A beautifully-structured but juicy red wine, packed with fruit and speaking eloquently of the region whence it came. You wouldn't have thought, would you...?

  22. Longview The Whippet Sauvignon Blanc Australian Wine

    Longview 'The Whippet' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Now £12.00

    Was £13.50


    ***Commended at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Well. When we got into the business of selling wine, little did we imagine that we would become the go-to business for Whippet lovers nationwide. But, for obvious reasons, Longview winery’s Whippet Sauvignon Blanc has gone down a storm with the canine-loving community.

    Thankfully, it happens to be a cracking little wine too. Racier than a Whippet in a field of sheep, it is bursting with gooseberry, asparagus and nettle flavours.

  23. Vicioso Malbec 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Vicioso Malbec 2015

    Now £12.00

    Was £14.00


    Vicioso is an Argentinian dialect word which translates both to 'vicious' and 'party animal'. However, Vicioso Malbec is named in honour of the punk rock hero Siddhartha Vicioso, a party animal, a vicious political beast and a former member of Los Sexy Pistoleros. His band's biggest hit was a jolly cross number called 'God Shave The Queen', which topped the hit parade while causing the collapse of the monarchy.

    With its Queen-adorned currency now worthless, Siddhartha's country emerged as a moneyless anarchist collective where people live in mansions made of cake and ride to work on unicorns. They also drink this beautifully succulent and robust red wine, thick with cassis and leavened by a touch of lavender, while listening to Los Sexy Pistoleros only album, 'Never Mind The Cojones'.

  24. Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016 Vegan and Vegetarian White Wine

    Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016

    Now £12.00

    Was £12.75


    Klaus was head-over-heels. Granted, he'd only seen Adelheid's picture, and - of course - fallen for her witty yet engaging online dating profile. But he'd truly tumbled. The last thing he was expecting was an answer to his hopeful message. And she wanted to meet! Klaus was in wonderland! The problem was he'd somewhat 'embellished' his description of himself.

    Adelheid's message revealed she was drawn to the wit, acumen, and sagacity he made much of. She was enamoured by the thought of a clever, practical man. And Klaus was far from that. Enter the fabled 'Woman of the Nahe'. Maker of potions. Just one sip of her 'Savvy' elixir and Klaus was brimming with canniness. What's more, the potion was just as elegant, lively and racy as Adelheid claimed to be. But that remained to be seen...

  25. Viu Manent Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2015 Vegetarian White Wine

    Viu Manent Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2015

    Now £12.38

    Was £13.75


    Lady Chardonnay is the benevolent ruler of this kingdom. Whilst being one of the noble grape varieties of the world, she is also an approachable, diligent grape that'll grow in many different lands and conditions. Her Majesty provides bountiful fruit for the mineral-laden wines of Chablis to the ripe, rich wonders from California.

    One moment she joins the field workers and provides a cool drink dressed as a simple unadorned white. The next thing she appears in Viu Manet's stately form from in Colgagua, Chile. In this Grand Reserva incarnation, she embraces ripe white fleshed fruits and juicy citrus. Standing at the high table, alongside the finest dishes in the kingdom robed in french oak and silk. This Chardonnay is an aristocratic yet generous white wine.

  26. Schauer Sauvignon Blanc Sausal 2016 Austrian White Wine

    Schauer Sauvignon Blanc Sausal 2016

    Now £12.75

    Was £15.00


    Look down from Schauer's vineyards - one of Europe's highest winemaking locations - and imagine: 300 million years ago, everything you see below lay beneath a prehistoric ocean; and where you're standing was an island. Mindblowing how things evolve.

    This wine is testament to that. Sauvignon Blanc from Austria! Planted on severe slate slopes, with uncompromising character. Minerality, Alpine herbs; and crisp and clean as mountain air. An extraordinary meeting of modern and ancient. Who said time travel is impossible? Just take a sip!

  27. Villa Maria 'Cellar Selection' Syrah 2011

    Villa Maria 'Cellar Selection' Syrah 2011

    Now £12.80

    Was £16.00


    This New Zealand red caused quite a sensation amongst Oddbins' passionate staff last time this was in the range, with much hoarding and hiding of the limited stock... It's not hard to see why.

    This sumptuous Syrah combines beautiful freshness as well as a purity of deep, dark, dense fruit that will only inspire forays into urgent food preparation. A wine to drink when seeking inspiration and the reassuring comfort of something really outstandingly good...

  28. Bourgogne Blanc Posanges 2015

    Bourgogne Blanc Posanges 2015

    Now £13.00

    Was £14.00


    You might think that Burgundy is a bit stuck in its ways. There's often coats-of-arms on the bottles and wine making in the region has predated, we calculate, the invention of sound. (That was by the Burgundian Duke Lars von Metallica, in 654 BC for you history buffs.) Although, they're more advanced than you might think; recently a number of producers have pooled resources so they can fight the plight of hail storms. How? You may rightly ask. By firing rockets at the sky... "Yeah, take that clouds!" Burgundy is modern yet with a respect for its history, just like the style of this wine.

  29. Bourgogne Rouge Posanges 2015

    Bourgogne Rouge Posanges 2015

    Now £13.50

    Was £15.00


    One of Burgundy's charms is it's so difficult to get right, it's an unforgiving climate and Pinot Noir is a fragile heart. It's a bit like Stephen Fry, on his day he's elegant, nuanced and scintillatingly expressive. Yet, you get the impression if things didn't quite go the way it was supposed to, you could quite easily discover him hiding in the cloakroom of your sister's wedding. Thankfully, the gents at Remoissenet Père et Fils know how to take care of the gentle. The wine orates eloquent notes of crunchy red berries, toasted cedar and mushroom. A beautiful wine; it's clear if you're in need of some care turn to Remoissenet.

  30. Clos Bellane 'Les Echalas' Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Rouge 2012

    Clos Bellane 'Les Echalas' Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Rouge 2014

    Now £17.43

    Was £20.50


    It's well known that many indigenous people of the Rhone, like most mountain folk, are short and squat. To be born tall and thin is a boon, here; and from an early age these 'beanpoles' are singled out for specialist work, picking the higher grapes from the tops of the vines.

    Taking it's name from the French for pole, or stake, 'Éschalas' honours these gangly individuals, without whom those sun-filled grapes right at the top of the vine would never have made it into this belting Rhone blend. Honest...

  31. Pittnauer Pannobile Red Wine Austria

    Pittnauer Pannobile 2013

    Now £22.50

    Was £25.00


    Pannobile is an association of nine Austrian winemakers, devoted to producing wines that truly speak of the soil, character and climate of their region, exquisite wines made entirely from local grape varieties. The "Pannobile" wine that each winery produces every year is its finest cuvée, entirely approachable in its youth but developing a great raft of flavours with age. Pittnauer Pannobile is a perfectly striking wine, already offering a density of aromas and flavours, ripe plums, juniper, orange peel and licorice. How it will develop in years to come we can only imagine!

  32. World's End Little Sister 2010

    World's End Little Sister 2010

    Now £39.20

    Was £49.00


    If Jonathan Maltus made Merlot, it would probably be the best Merlot in the world. Oh, wait, he does... and some people might think it is.

    Made in some of the best vineyards in California, by Mr Maltus, who is hailed as a 'visionary' by critic Robert Parker, it is a fleshy, luscious Merlot, with nuanced plum, damson and black cherry fruit and an interesting green olive twist.

    Put it this way: if you put us in a room with a bottle of this and a slab of decent mature cheddar, you wouldn't see us for a long, long time...

  33. Château Gloria Saint Julien

    Château Gloria Saint Julien 2012

    Now £40.50

    Was £45.00


    Balanced. Firm. Smoky. Heady. Herby. Fruit-forward. Subtle. These are just words. Or are they? What is a word? Can a word ever sum up the life and soul and art of the winemaking process? With a wine like Château Gloria, words feel hollow. So we ask you, look not at the word, but through the word. Be at one with this wine. Relax. Light some candles. Now you are ready.

  34. World's End Against the Wind 2010

    World's End Against the Wind 2010

    Now £41.65

    Was £49.00


    Jonathan Maltus has his feet in two camps: one at Château Teyssier, where he found fame as an avant-garde, 'garragiste' winemaker, and one in the Napa Valley, where he makes the stonking World' End wines, which have a discernible French lilt, like Little Sister. This Cabernet Franc has gorgeously rounded corners, and has oceans of sweet raspberry, coffee and mocha flavours and a structure to put the Golden Gate Bridge to shame. Californian heaven.
