  1. Aymura Carmenere Red Wine Chilean 2014

    Aymura Carménère 2014

    £12.75

    £12.75

    250 miles north of Santiago lies Chile's Elqui Valley, which may well have been formed by the work of singer Elkie Brooks. The area has only recently found favour with winemakers initially cautious (with only 15 days precipitation per year, there's nothing but Sunshine After the Rain, but you'd be a Fool if You Think It's Over just because of that).

    Mitigating all of that sunshine are cool night-time temperatures which means that, instead of sweet and heady Lilac Wines, you can make bold, full-bodied, complex and dark chocolate-tinged Pearls like this (enough already! - Ed).
  2. Aymura Pinot Noir Chilean Red Wine 2013

    Aymura Pinot Noir 2015

    £15.00

    £15.00

    It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible black... Well, don't come crying to us, Dylan Thomas; if you were after stars you should have gone to Chile's Elqui Valley, 250 miles north of Santiago.

    This is not only home to Viña Mayu, whence cometh this Old World-style of Pinot Noir, which has beautiful gamey, farmyard-y notes alongside flavours of fresh, sweet red cherry, but the region is also an astrotourism centre, with at least eight internationally-renowned observatories.

    Their extremely hot days and near-freezing nights offer some of Chile's most exciting winegrowing conditions, and it has attracted an increasing number of adventurous winemakers over the past fifteen years or so. Bet you don't get that in Llareggub!
  3. Aymura Syrah Chilean Red Wine 2013

    Aymura Syrah 2013

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Elqui Valley, Chile. Giorgio Flessati, a winemaker from the mountains of Northern Italy, is standing in a barrel room, gazing with satisfaction at the Aymura Syrah he has made for Viña Mayu. In five months it will be bottled and all who cross its path will be impressed by the thick, red fruit flavours which underpin its heady whirl of black pepper, smoke and leather.

    While the wine ages, Giorgio will fly back to Trentino, to catch up with family and friends and generally enjoy La Dolce Vita. During his flight he will doze, and dream about the wine he has made over the years in Bordeaux, Sicily, even Australia.

    Cambridgeshire, England. Dave Conkers, a factory supervisor from Peterborough, is standing in his garage, smiling wistfully at a row of demijohns. Mmm, this year should be the best yet. Hush now, Dave is dreaming too. Let him fly.
  4. Carta Vieja Cabernet Sauvigon Chilean Red Wine

    Carta Vieja Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Chile does a number of things well: it does some pretty nice mountains and it can do miraculous escapes from mines very well but, here at Oddbins, we rather like them for their oh-so affordable, brilliant, fruit-forward wines. They have a particular knack with Cabernet Sauvignon, from which they have coaxed, in this particular instance, winning aromas of black cherries and berries and a palate of bilberries, cassis and mature blackberries, supported by soft and elegant tannins.
  5. Carta Vieja Merlot Red Wine Chile

    Carta Vieja Merlot 2016

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Another major minor-miracle in the Oddbins wine range and a regular member of our bestsellers list, this is a red that keeps the customer in search of good valued wine very satisfied indeed. Minor, because of its diminutive price tag but very major when it comes to what you get for your money.
    This Chilean red's distinction is its refinement and understatement. A kind of light, softness with a freshness and vitality that easily puts it next to baby Clarets for class, balance and great food-friendliness.
  6. Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc Wine Chile

    Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    This Sauvignon just goes from strength to strength when it comes to great valued wine. Achieving an astonishing standard for the price, this white really shows true Sauvignon Blanc character.
    Carta Vieja have a brilliant knack of getting serious zeal across in both their reds, and whites like this one. This is a crisp, clean white wine with a lovely note of elderflower. Cracking party wine. Cracking everydayer. Open it up and take some time out to relax.
  7. De Martino Legado Carménère 2014

    De Martino Legado Carmenere 2014

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Legado is Spanish for legacy, something handed down by an ancestor or a predecessor. De Martino have got this red wine spot on, but questions need to be asked about the name.

    One taste and nobody in their right mind would ever want to give it away to a member of a younger generation, however much you love them. They just wouldn't appreciate something this elegant, sophisticated, would they? Nope, we think that De Martino Stockpile Selfishly Carménére would be a far more fitting name.
  8. De Martino Legado Chardonnay 2015

    De Martino Legado Chardonnay 2015

    £11.00

    £11.00

    The goats of the Limari Valley live the good life. The weather's a bit cooler, so they don't get too hot, there are cacti to scratch your itches on and hillsides to gambol up.

    There was also an abundance of delicious grapes, until De Martino realised that those limestone slopes and that cool climate were perfect for making wine.

    The goats got over the loss of the grapes though, because they found they love nothing better than putting their hooves up with a chilled glass of citrusy, mineral Chardonnay.
  9. Los Tortolitos Merlot 2016 Chilean Red Wine

    Los Tortolitos Merlot 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Remember in the 90s when people would talk about Chilean Merlot, "Chilean Merlot it's so expressive, it's like nothing I've ever drunk before!" Then some clever clogs did some gene splicing or... carbon dating or... vino ultrasound? Don't get bogged down in the science, they found out what a lot of people thought was Merlot was actually, Carmenere. Great, hooray for Carmenere, but what about poor old Merlot. It's still got so much to give! We can't sit by while Merlot, in the prime of life, is shipped off to a Chilean nursing home. Thankfully, Vinedos Puertas have put good old Merlot back to work in Chile and I promise you, this time it's not actually Carmenere in a Halloween costume... probably.
  10. Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    For the Spanish aficionados amongst you, you may be aware Los Tortolitos translates as "the Lovebirds." This name derives from Chilean harvesters observing a lone jay looking terriably blue. Depressed by his hermit existence but accepting of his lot, he turned to the age old monkish practice of assisting in the production of wine. He would pick single grapes and drop them into the harvester's baskets. One day, in a moment of decadence, he ate a grape and was so overcome with the refreshing taste of the Sauvignon Blanc grape he was inspired to invent Tindr. He swiped right on a charming young parakeet from the central valley and the rest is history. Now Tinder and Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc are helping lovebirds everywhere.
  11. Matetic Corrallilo Gewurztraminer White Wine

    Matetic Corrallilo Gewurztraminer 2015

    £14.50

    £14.50

    The Alsatian grape variety Gewurtztraminer sounds like one of the nonsense words in Lewis Carroll's poem 'The Jabberwocky'. Perhaps its flavours could be described as one of the creatures in the scene with Alice and the Mad Hatter? A girl in a floral dress chomping on apples, lychees and cinnamon cakes, conversing with animals sipping rose water from tea cups? What could we call this? Alsace in Wonderland?
  12. Matetic EQ Chardonnay White Wine

    Matetic EQ Chardonnay 2013

    £15.50

    £15.50

    Lots of people reckon they don't like Chardonnay, but this Chardonnay is made in San Antonio Valley and the valley's namesake, Saint Anthony, is the patron saint of finding lost things. The combined magic of this saint and the divinely rich power of this wine will guide these lost lambs out of the wilderness and back to the truth. That Chardonnay is one of the BEST wines in the world! Well at the very least it will inspire you dig up your DVD of Lost Boys.
  13. Matetic EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc White Wine

    Matetic EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £15.50

    £15.50

    This delightful Sauvignon Blanc is certainly worth a try! Tropical fruit combines with citrus to create a delicate and complex nose. We're not sure what heaven would look like but we certainly hope its filled with as much joy and pleasure as this wine gives us when drinking it.
  14. Merino Chardonnay White Wine

    Merino Movi Limari Chardonnay 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    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!
  15. Merino Syrah

    Merino Movi Limari Syrah 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    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!
  16. Oveja Negra Cabernet Franc Carmenere

    Oveja Negra Cabernet Franc Carmenère 2015

    £9.00

    £9.00

    Oveja Negra, if you hadn't gathered from the black sheep on the label, translates as 'Black Sheep' and that's exactly why we love these guys - they don't follow the herd with their wines.

    Cabernet Franc and Carmenère is an unusual blend, but it works really well - Cab Franc's light body, finesse and peppery quality balance out the fuller, more ample fruit of Carmenère. We always thought it was a good idea not to try to fit in and this is further evidence thereof. Yeah boy!

    You're getting hotter! Buy this wine and you could win a 7 night trip for 2 to Chile, courtesy of Oveja Negra winery. More details HERE
  17. Oveja Negra Sauvignon Blanc Carmenere Chile

    Oveja Negra Sauvignon Blanc Carmenère 2016

    £9.00

    £9.00

    Like when you walk into the garden after a long winter to discover lil' daffodils boldly bursting forth in search of sun and warmth and other heart-gladdening flora, Oveja Negra is a pleasant surprise.

    A frankly weird blend of Sauvignon Blanc and the plump yet herbaceous red grape, Carmenère, it has an intensely, marvellously refreshing grapefruit-y core, with subtle mineral characteristics and a herbal touch from the Carmenère. A wine to put a spring in your step and a smile on your face.

  18. Pérez Cruz Carménère 2014 Chilean Wine

    Pérez Cruz Carménère 2014

    Now £15.50

    Was £16.50

    £15.50

    Carmenere is the forgotten one of the six Bordeaux grape varieties. But like an incredibly athletic and intrepid mole it has popped its head up in Chile. Here it produces some incredibly potent and complex reds like this one.

    Perez Cruz's Carménère is a riotous carnival of a wine, ripe black berry fruits mingle with more dried and baked fruit flavours and some lovely green herby notes. There's so much going on here it's impossible not to just get swept along with the party.
  19. Perez Cruz Waiki Cabernet Chilean Wine

    Pérez Cruz Waiki Cabernet 2013

    Now £11.00

    Was £12.25

    £11.00

    This wine takes its name from a curious custom in the Maipo Andes, in which new brides must go to the river, catch a fish and whisper "Wakey Wakey", before letting it go about its day.

    But this doesn't tell you much about the wine, so we'll help out: it has ripe red fruits, black pepper and vanilla flavours, underpinned by fresh aromas of tarragon and laurel. We don't know about fish, but we do know about red wine. This is one that's guaranteed to wake up your taste buds.
  20. Pora Py'a de Chile Merlot

    Porã Py'a de Chile Merlot 2015

    Now £6.98

    Was £7.75

    £6.98

    If it were a lonely hearts ad, we think Porã Py'a's Merlot would read something like this: I'm a young charmer with a big heart. My looks are dark and Latino, but my appeal is more than skin-deep... Give me a try and I'll woo you with generosity, a plush feel and a darkly fruity GSOH. My ideal partner would be a gregarious, fun-seeking individual who enjoys partying at the weekend (I love a party), as well as a homely mid-week dinner (we Argentines love our food).
  21. Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere Chile Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    If you've not yet come across a bad Carmenere then there's a very simple reason for this. There aren't many. This is partly attributable to the grape itself, but more to do with the country within which it's grown.

    Chile is this country and its perfect growing conditions for this grape make it virtually organic by default for starters. This is a guarantee of the full-bodied, smooth, satisfying type of red that Carmenere is so well known for.
  22. Secret de Viu Manent Malbec Red Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Malbec 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Border-hopping Malbec from the other side of the peninsula in Chile. This is very South American anyway. Small wonder Chile too are turning their hand to this, the Argie-wonder grape; not that they need to prove much when it comes to winemaking.

    This Secret (or locally, Secreto) is Malbec very much as you picture it: Full and juicy, smooth and satisfying, and with the guaranteed trademark long, long length. Wine this good won't be much of a Secret for long.
  23. Secret de Viu Manent Viognier Chilean Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Viognier 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    With an already winning reputation for super-reliable reds, it's often forgotten just how good Chilean whites are now becoming. And Viognier is a good choice for the Chileanification treatment as, in a similar way to the reds, you get ripeness that is never at odds to overall balance. And in fact this is one of the more thoughtful, restrained Viogniers on the market. Viognier of this sort will make a very versatile night in standby and food all-rounder. This is full bodied with notable floral and mineral notes and a lovely mouth-watering finish.
  24. Terra Noble Carménère 2015

    Terra Noble Carmenere 2015

    £7.50

    £7.50

    A while ago, a French winemaker was visiting Chile's vineyards. Striding imperiously through the vineyards and inspecting some grapes he declared 'No you peasants, this is not Merlot'.

    It was an old Bordeaux red grape variety called Carménère. In fact, Chile had thus far been bottling this grape and labelling it as Merlot. The visitor strode off into the sunset feeling very smug indeed, but Chilean winemakers had the last laugh.

    Carménère is a beautiful wine in its own right. It's full bodied, jam packed with raspberry and chocolate flavours and slightly spicy on the finish. It's since become one of this nation's most successful red wines and now a signature grape variety.
  25. Terra Noble Chardonnay

    Terra Noble Chardonnay 2016

    Now £8.50

    Was £9.00

    £8.50

    If Chardonnay was an animal it would be a household cat. Some people adore cats, others are a bit cautious around them. But once you've spent time with this friendly feline you'll fall for her winning warmth.

    Curled up on an oak barrel, lapping up cream or sunning herself by fragrant fruit trees. This wine is certainly a tabby cat. Warm and friendly. Never in a hurry to go anywhere except to go with food. All fur, no claws and absolutely determined to charm.
  26. Terra Noble Merlot Red Wine

    Terra Noble Merlot 2015

    Now £7.00

    Was £7.50

    £7.00

    It's already been a long day. Crawling through the strata of humanity, its voices buzzing through the electric wires, erupting onto screens, springing out of the phone lines or flashing up on texts. I dream of the couch, a movie and a glass of wine. I'm definitely dropping into the shop for a Merlot on the way home tonight!
  27. Terra Noble Reserva Syrah 2014

    Terra Noble Reserva Syrah 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    Combine Clint Eastwood's character in the seminal western 'Pale Rider' and pair it with the West African proverb: "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far." That embodies what Syrah can be like.

    This Syrah straddles the two personalities of this grape variety and the film's protagonist 'The Preacher' - sometimes brooding, dark and softly spoken. Other times a spray of bullets packed with explosive fruits, horse leather and loaded with cracked pepper and spice. Fantastic wine! Mr Eastwood's film is pretty good too.
  28. Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Now £7.00

    Was £7.50

    £7.00

    David Bowie loved to be musical and was a visual chameleon. Sauvignon Blanc likes to shape shift too. This white grape can change its flavour of wine according to where it's grown. From Bordeaux to New Zealand this grape has many guises across the globe.

    In Chile, Sauvignon Blanc comes out in a sparkling body suit of citrus and tropical fruits. Like our favourite Starman, Sauvignon Blanc morphs like Bowie's face and words.
  29. Viña Leyda 'Canelo' Syrah 2014

    Viña Leyda 'Canelo' Syrah 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    ***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Like an alpine orchid, this is a rare beauty from a vertiginous landscape, whose high altitude home and seemingly adverse conditions are the very thing that make it so beautiful, as the plant strives to survive and thrive.

    Ee bah gum we’ve gone a bit Davey Attenborough haven’t we! What do we do? Oh yes, sell wine.

    Ahem, well: this one has the signature cool-climate Syrah traits of black pepper, violets and tart red raspberry and blueberry overtones. A serious mountaineer.
  30. Viña Leyda Falaris Chardonnay Chilean White Wine

    Viña Leyda Falaris Chardonnay 2015

    £11.75

    £11.75

    ***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    What a difference a subtle misspelling can make. Falaris is probably the best value Chardonnay we’ve ever tasted, the kind that scares the bejesus out of Burgundy. Phalaris was a Sicilian tyrant who allegedly ate babies and roasted people alive inside a bronze bull statue.

    So,be careful. Because that error on your shopping list could take your dinner party down a very different route. We recommend going with the “F” spelling, which will give you a wonderfully crisp cool-climate Chardonnay packed with lemon, tangerine, almond, cream and salty mineral flavours.
  31. Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas

    Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    New horizons are a wondrous thing, and the Leyda Valley is exactly that. A new valley opened up by winemakers with a touch of the prospector about them, taking risks in the hope that they might strike liquid gold!

    Well, if you have a glass or three of this, you will probably agree with us that there's gold in them thar hills and Vina Leyda are bottling it for your drinking pleasure!
  32. Viu Manent Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2015 Chilean White Wine

    Viu Manent Gran Reserva Chardonnay 2015

    £13.75

    £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.
  33. Viu Manent Vibo Centenario 2013

    Viu Manent Vibo Centenario 2013

    £17.00

    £17.00

    When shock rocker Marylin Manson penned his famous cookbook 'Burning Buns for Beezlebub' he must have been sipping on this richly, dark red. Intense blackcurrant fruit, haunted forest berries and a shadow of mint. Full bodied with a hint of purple velvet jackets and black leather boots... Thankfully, there's no forlornly, frozen forests here. The wine is from the Colchagua, Chile. A bright and sunny place for Mr. Manson and Professor Alice Cooper to sample and discuss this wine's potent assembly of Cabernet, Malbec and Petit Verdot. BTW Those are grapes- not band members.
  34. William Cole Albamar Sauvignon Blanc 2011

    William Cole Albamar Sauvignon Blanc 2011

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Winemakers go a long way to make sure their grapes are taken care of. But William Cole goes an extra step. Casablancan locals thought 'Bill' had gone mad when they woke one morning to the sound of his rich tenor voice resounding through the foggy valley.

    Turns out he wasn't mad after all. Bill was singing to reassure his grapes, so they weren't made all anxious by the thick fogs that come in off the sea most evenings. Knowing their faithful winemaker was there to look after them meant the grapes could relax in the sea mist without being scared, and let the cool, refreshing 'Albamar' enhance their beautifully crisp, appley acidity.
  35. William Cole Columbine Reserve Pinot Noir 2011

    William Cole Columbine Reserve Pinot Noir 2011

    £9.50

    £9.50

    While he does have a great singing voice, 'Bill' Cole perhaps doesn't have the best of memories. Waking to his rich tenor, sounding through the morning fog, locals have come to know which vines the winemaker is serenading by the tune he's singing.

    When they hear the dulcet strains of "Oh, my darling, oh my darling..." they know it's the Pinot Noir, and they're certain the silky, complex nuances of Bill's voice find their way into the grapes. They just don't have the heart to tell him it's Clementine, not Columbine...
