    Its ripe yellow plum and cantaloupe melon flavours would buddy up easily with a spicy vegetable stir-fry, ideally with a bunch of old friends, a comfy sofa and a Shirley Valentine DVD.

    Lemons are great. You can squeeze them on fish to make the fish more lovely and you can put them in water to make a nice little hand wash. However, they are blimming sharp.
    So, what we prefer is a WINE that TASTES like lemons, but doesn’t make you screw your face up and wince! Plus, it has other flavours, like quince and pear, which are awesome. Overall, we think that’s Cigarra 1: Lemons 0.

    A vibrant Garnacha Blanca from Catalonia, from a producer whose name translates as ‘lend a hand’, with a label that refers to the Castells of Catalonia, the human pyramids that form an eye-popping attraction in so many public festivities in the region. The Castells, great symbols of co-operation, were declared by UNESCO in 2010 to be one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

    Crikey! But speaking of orals and intangibles, the region makes a remarkable amount of utterly wonderful wines, and we'd be delighted to let anybody give us a hand to drink this refreshing, creamy, green apple packed, delicious white wine!

    Jean-Luc Colombo's wines provide exceptional quality for every day Rhône drinking. The affectionate nickname for husband, father, winemaker and charismatic figurehead, Jean-Luc, is ‘the winemaking wizard of the Rhône Valley’ and this sassy, swaggeringly-fruited blend of Clairette Blanche and Rousanne really does feel like it’s sprinkled with magic.

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.

    ‘Like a rainy day that is not wet/like a gambling fiend that does not bet/like Dracula without his fangs/like the boogie-to-the-boogie without the boogie bang’ rapped the Sugarhill Gang in 1979, on the frankly long version of Rapper's Delight. ‘What is?’ enquired your then teenage scribe, who never actually found out.

    He might have been talking about this paradoxical yet utterly delicious non-fizzy Prosecco, which has all the flavour of its sparkling siblings but without a bubble to be seen.

    Green apple aromas meet floral touches on the way to a full and luscious, spumante-spurning palate. ‘Like toil and trouble without the double double/like Prosecco wine that doesn't have the bubbles,’ they may have added. Maybe they did. Maybe the song kept writing itself, a twelve-inch enormo-mix ending only at the beginning in an infinite loop. Who knows..?

    ***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2014***

    Five. That’s how many reasons there are to love this wine. Let us begin:
    1) De Bosman is a passionate, fifth generation family-owned winery, having first moved to the Lelienfontein farm in 1798.
    2) Their 250 workers own 30% of the estate so are very invested in every aspect of production.
    3) They use solar panels and everything from grafting the vines to picking the wines is done by hand.
    4) It is fair trade.
    5) This red has fantastic sense of place, with the classic Wellington Merlot flavours of rich chocolate and pepper underpinning the lush red and black fruit. Yee-haw.

    When winemakers make wine, they are painting. They may not wear stripy tops and live bohemian lifestyles, but are artists nonetheless and they take their inspiration and their materials from the land around them.

    In this instance, the materials are the gentle slopes of the southern Rhône, plentiful sun, which provide enough warmth for the grapes to reach ripeness. They then have the after-effects of the Mistral wind, which tears through the northern Rhône and arrives downstream, offering grapes a gentle respite from the Mediterranean sun.

    In the hands of the artists at Jean-Luc Colombo, they turn this palate into a bold, firmly-structured, fine-grained, beauty of a painting.

    It’s really incredible, but this Port actually has its own song.

    ‘What’s that then?’, we hear you cry. Well, *clears throat and bows exaggeratedly*… “Mr Sandeman has brought me a dream. He’s made the cutest Port that I’ve seen. If you put it to your lips, it tastes like roses and clover. And when you try it your stilton’s lonesome nights are over.”

    As we say, incredible, although we’ll admit that this Port doesn’t really taste that much of clover, but more like cassis and cedar. We wonder what clover tastes like…

    Macrocarpa is like the old childhood friend you grew apart from, whom you meet years later and hit it off with all over again. Because, like child hood friends, there are many out there, but only a few that stand out and this isn’t just another New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

    But what sets it apart? We’re betting on the 20 per cent oak which gives a rounder mouth-feel and a more boosted body. Complex and feisty with a habit of keeping you coming back time and time again, that’s our mate Macrocarpa. We’re not letting this one slip through our fingers again.

    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...

    A Rioja from a declared vintage! Not really, but nearly. This is a step up from normal Reserva and is only possible in an exceptional year.Glorioso, if you don't know, has a markedly more elegant house style (hinted at by the Burgundy-shaped bottle) and this is a very capable food-pair Rioja. Medium-bodied and very smooth this is really rather special.

    We’d really like to talk about this wine. But we’d prefer to do it à la Jean-Luc Picard, of the Star Ship Enterprise, if we may (the winemaker’s called Jean-Luc, we’re immature, what can we say…)

    Captain’s Log, stardate 9357.6. Our destination is Rhône, where our sensors have detected signs of red fruits and gentle spice. Not just that; Spock says there appears to be a tight structure in place. Curious. Nothing has changed in Rhône for generations and their time-honoured traditions make it greatly interesting to us. Wait, they’ve locked their phasers onto us! Red (wine) alert!

  18. Bercher Spatburgunder QbA Trocken Holzfass Germany Red Wine 2013

    Weingut Berchers Spätburgunder Trocken Holzfass 2013

    Now £16.65

    Was £18.50

    £16.65

    If you dissect the name ‘Spätburgunder’ – the German name for Pinot Noir – you can deduce two things: it ripens late (‘spät – think Spätlese; ‘late harvest’), and it was brought over to Germany from a certain wine-making region in France (guess which one).

    Turns out this thin-skinned beauty absolutely thrives in the volcanic Kaiserstuhl region. Here it picks up a mineral edge that sets it aside from its Burgundian brother, and arguably makes it the cooler of the two.

    Berry-scented and balanced, this red wine shows that Germany is definitely a home from home for this Gallic grape.

  19. Pecchenino Langhe Nebbiolo Red Wine

    Pecchenino Langhe Nebbiolo 2014

    £19.00

    £19.00

    Think vineyards, and you think sun-bathed slopes, green canopies, and beautiful views. You'd be right, usually, to imagine that. But not with this wine. Many years ago, heavy fog coincided with harvest. The grapes were perfect, picking was scheduled, and Old Pecchenino was a stickler for ripeness. So he sent his team out despite the fog, or 'nebbia' as it is in Italian.

    Picture, therefore, a misty hillside. Picking only by feel. The snip of pruning sheers. The self-contained bump of grapes dropping into wicker baskets... The harvest was brought in on instinct and faith, and rarely was a wine more delicious. So delicious, fresh and aromatic in fact, that from that day the Peccheninos wait for the fog. And only then harvest, on instinct and faith.

    Drinking port can be like opening up those tradional, wooden russian dolls. As you open each doll you reveal another one, another style of port. The first one is like trying basic ruby port-ok not bad, then the next you discover LBV port- which is much better.

    After some generous soul gives you a glass of single vintage port-it's brilliant and you think you have hit the last doll. But then you discover there is one more. The last one.

    A fine tawny port. Silky butterscotch, dried fruits and nutty flavours- completely new flavours compared to the previous ones. You really can't get any further than that.

    We’re trying to think of ways to describe this well-aged Pedro Ximenex that don’t have us cooing and gushing like some over-excitable newlyweds. Darn it, we just can’t help it: we are in love with this wine and we want the world to know!

    Here are some words we think of, as we gaze into the rich, dark depths in our glass: cocoa, liquorice, tobacco pouch, rosemary, black olives, Arabic coffee, vanilla and cinnamon. But how feeble words sound compared to the immeasurable depth of feeling in our hearts. We need to sit down.

    Quinta de Vargellas has gone through some changes over the years, the vineyards date back to 1820 when the wines were sold to the English market. After the vineyards were devastated by the phylloxera disease in the 1880s, a couple of blokes armed with faith and dedication decided to attempt to rebuild these vineyards.

    Now, the Vargellas vineyards produce sophisticated Ports from vines up to 75 years old, with a focus on sustainability. The 2002 vintage is particularly intense, with rich raisin-y fruit and lots of sweet spices. We say thank you, Taylor Fladgate and Yeatman, for having faith and slogging it out.
