  1. Aguila Macabeo 2012 White Wine Spain

    Aguila White 2012

    £6.50

    £6.50

    If Aguila White Wine was a person, it'd have to be the Prince of Cool, Will Smith. Whether he's keeping it fresh in Bel Air or regulating extra-terrestrial life of earth, this dude is chilled, but wacky, with a dry wit that cheers you up no end, which pretty much sums up this modern, fresh, fruity but dry Macabeo, we thinks.
    Altogether now, "In West Philadelphia, born and raised, on the playground is where I spent most of my days, chillin' out max and relaxin', all cool and all shootin' some b-ball outside the school..."
  2. Alain Geoffroy Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2015

    Alain Geoffroy Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2015

    £22.00

    £22.00

    Domaine Alain Geoffroy have let Oddbins in on a little-known secret about a certain singer-songwriter and this Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy.

    Way back when she visited the Domain on a holiday, Natasha Bedingfield understandably fell a little head-over-heels in love with this voluptuous white wine. She was so enamoured by its pale golden colour, floral aromas and fresh, fruity flavours that she couldn't stop singing about bottles full of sunshine.

    Rumour has it she had to change the lyrics for legal reasons and so she started singing about pocketsful of sunshine instead - a bit of a leap if you ask us. But your secret is out now, Natasha, and quite honestly we love the original version almost as much as we love this Chablis; we dare you to try singing it without it getting stuck in your head!

    'I got a bottle, Got a bottle full of sunshine, I've got a love and I know that it's all mine...'
  3. Alain Geoffroy Petite Chablis White Wine France

    Alain Geoffroy Petite Chablis 2016

    £13.50

    £13.50

    Imagine (insert here your favourite actor) dressed in white linen emerging from an orchard swinging a basket of freshly picked apples and lemons. Probably should make that actor someone French to authenticate the vision? Anyway, they are chewing on one of these crisp apples and you're invited to the house to make homemade lemonade. Suddenly a whole river- a really clean one from New Zealand wooshes past and sweeps the two characters away (You're including in this now) and plonks them down on top of a hill of fossil-rich clay. There you have it- This Petit Chablis. Apples, citrus, clean crispness and fresh minerality. Plus a couple of soggy Thespians that got saturated by the sudden intrusion of that river. But they are happy- this wine ain't too chablis at all.
  4. Albert Bichot Saint-Romain 2012 French White Wine

    Albert Bichot Saint-Romain 2012

    £26.00

    £26.00

    And very saintly it is too! It is incredibly approachable, with a natural grace that seems to shine down from above. A seriously appealing streak of elderberry and citrus peel notes on a mineral background bring it back down to earth, however, which is handy, as you'll need it down here if you're going to serve it with a creamy chicken and tarragon pie.

    Full-bodied with discreet oak adding warmth and creamy notes, this wine's supple, fleshy texture reminds you that, while saintly, it is definitely of this world.
  5. Albert Bichot Viré-Clessé 2015

    Albert Bichot Viré-Clessé 2015

    £16.00

    £16.00

    The first traces of the Bichot family track back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. The family's coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche). Yep, you read that right, you just have to trust a winery that's coat of arms is older than most countries. Albert Bichot's coat of arms was around before America was a mere glint in Columbus' eye! We reckon they've got a secret handshake that predates the concept of commerce... probably learnt it form a woolly mammoth. Regardless, they have had a fair amount of time to hone their skill over at Bichot and it's very apparent in their wine. The Vire-Clesse has wonderfully intense aromas of lemon, peach and mango with subtle minerality on the finish. A timeless classic.
  6. Alma de Blanco Godello Spanish Wine

    Alma de Blanco Godello 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    A few years ago, Rias Baixas, and Albarino were the region and grape names to drop to prove your wine aficionado credentials. These days, those names have become almost mainstream, and it's the tiny neighbouring region of Monterrei - and Albarino's doppelganger Godello - that you need to be talking about to show off your esoteric knowledge. Like Albarino, Godello is crisp, fresh and so friendly to seafood it risks an injunction. Snap it up while it's still an undiscovered (and under valued) gem.
  7. Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016 German White Wine

    Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016

    £12.75

    £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...
  8. Anette Closheim Riesling 2016 Germany White Wine

    Anette Closheim Riesling 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    A trail of failed relationships behind her; one disappointing beau after another. In desperation one weepy evening, Beatrice turned to an online dating site. Surely the right gentleman was out there somewhere. However, so thick were her tears she failed to notice her phone autocorrect one of the key words as she typed her profile. Instead of calling for a man with a good sense of reason, it altered it*. A man with a good sense of Riesling.

    Eckard thought his luck was in! More than taken with Beatrice's titivating profile pic, he dashed off to the 'Woman of the Nahe', maker of potions, to secure one of the most persuasive Rieslings she could muster. It only remained to be seen whether Beatrice was as sharp witted and exotically fruity as the wine!

    *Perhaps she typed that word in quite a lot...
  9. Anna's Way Sauvignon Blanc White Wine

    Anna's Way Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    "Anna's Song" was recorded by Marvin Gaye while he was going through his divorce with Berry Gordy's sister, Anna. "Anna's Way" can also be interpreted as being about the marriage of two of the main valleys of the Marlborough region though - the Awatere and Wairau Valleys.

    This classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc offers an intense nose of passion fruit and gooseberries with subtle floral notes. It's quite green and therefore the wine is dry to taste but sweetened by the juicy flavours of citrus, passion fruit and gooseberries. Its lingering finish makes you feel the same way as Marvin Gaye, who obviously doesn't want his relationship with Anna to end.

    The song finishes with the words: ""Anna, Anna, Anna, this is Anna's song, loving you all night long!"" I can assure you, you too will sing the song after a sip of Anna's Way!
  10. Anxo Martin Spanish White Wine

    Anxo MartÍn 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Sometimes we desperately lust for a relaxing getaway and a dose of healthy vitamin D, but often lack the finance for it. We at Oddbins have a solution for this - just crack open a bottle of this liquid sunshine! You will immediately be teleported to a beach: juicy mango in hand and white flowers in your hair. Surrounding you are passion fruit trees heavy with ripe fruits, and the sun above you shines golden. Breathe in and get lost in a world of exotic wonders... This is the magic Anxo Martín brings!
  11. Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Wine

    Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Blend 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    If the tiles fall correctly in a game of Scrabble, the word "Gewurztraminer" will earn you 729 points. If you run "Riesling" off the end of it, you will get a lower score but a handy 50 bonus points for using all your letters. Larry Cherubino, a man also worth a few points, has an even more winning way of putting the two together, by blending them into a refreshingly heady, exotically spicy and rose petal-tinged bottle of loveliness, that would be the perfect foil for a mild curry and a Turkish delight dessert. Or you could ditch the Scrabble and drink it while watching Countdown and waiting for a rude word to crop up!
  12. Bibo Runge Riesling 2015 German White Wine

    Bibo Runge Riesling 2015

    £16.75

    £16.75

    Born into nobility, Bibo Runge had no choice but to follow the path his ancestry determined and take arms as Knight Errant. Given his predecessors, much was expected of him, and he excelled, even against their legendary feats. But Bibo felt something was wrong. Why should he exercise his ability merely in the pursuance of personal fame?

    Choosing to throw off the outdated chivalric code, he made the protection of common people his crusade, installing himself in a quiet town in the guise of a humble blacksmith. It must have been instinct. For the Devil, intending to ride out, sent his horse to the town to be reshod. Other blacksmiths would have quailed and bent to the task; but Bibo sent the horse packing, battling him with his bare hands. This wine celebrates Bibo, displaying all the intensity, purity and steel of the man himself, with a finish that lingers as long as the tales.
  13. Blau Cel 2015 White Wine Spanish

    Blau Cel 2016

    £10.50

    £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!
  14. Palacios 'Placet' Rioja Blanco 2014 Spanish White Wine

    Bodegas Palacios Remondo 'Placet' Rioja Blanco 2014

    £17.50

    £17.50

    To be born into a well-regarded winemaking family might seem a boon, but for youngest son Rafa it was a double-edged sword. Yes, he inherited a passion to make outstanding Rioja; but he also wanted to assert his individuality. And, as always, that caused ructions. Family opinion was split.

    Rafael wanted to fashion a Blanco. A wine of such elemental elegance it would sit shoulder to shoulder with the family's reds. A white capturing the character of the region. Marrying the scrubland scents of Holm oak, thyme and rosemary with flavours of white peach and pear. A modern wine, but with deference to tradition. One taste, and the family gave their assent. You can decide for yourself.
  15. Le Cigare Volant Bonny Doon Vineyards American White Wine

    Bonny Doon Vineyards Le Cigare Volant Blanc 2013

    £30.00

    £30.00

    It's one thing to have a knack for something, but Californian vintner Randall Grahm has a very peculiar knack for bringing traditional and more out-there techniques together to create a kind of beautiful third dimension. Whilst he studiously replicates the grape blends of France's Rhône Valley - earning himself the nickname 'The Rhône Ranger' - he also calls upon the astronomical calendar when attending to his beloved vines. Like a Zen master, he doesn't interfere with the process, preferring to let nature (wild yeasts) to do the work (fermentation). In the case of this white Rhône blend, this has resulted in transcendent finesse, with mystical aromas of lavender and quince, leading to a palate of mango and pear. Out of this world.
  16. Bougrier Anjou Chenin Blanc White Wine

    Bougrier Anjou Chenin 2016

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Like the Clan MacLeod in epic 1980s sci-fi/fantasy, Highlander, the Bougrier family have been around for a long time. But, thankfully, they don't have that nasty Kurgan bloke bothering them at every turn because otherwise they'd have no time at all to make such delicious wines.

    This delightful Chenin is the perfect way to discover slightly sweeter styled wines. The touch of fruity sweetness is tempered by lovely crisp acidity and is bursting with fresh peach and orange blossom loveliness. Take that, Kurgan!
  17. Sancerre Bougrier 2015 white wine

    Bougrier Sancerre 2016

    £16.00

    £16.00

    This wine is so fist-thumpingly fresh, so buttock-clenchingly minerally, so eye-poppingly citrusy that, if you try it, you might for a moment mistake yourself for Brian Blessed, immediately start charging around, tearfully declaring "Gordon's alive!!" to anyone who'll listen and generally make yourself known to ear drums the world over. So, if you've ever wondered what it's actually like to be Brian Blessed, this is the wine for you.
  18. Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Vintage White Wine

    Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that you have to go to the New World to get really good value in the classic French grape varieties, like sauvignon blanc. Or is it? Here's a Loire Valley sauvignon that's as crisp, fresh and grassy as a newly mowed meadow, with elegant minerality and a subtlety and restraint that's reminiscent of classic Sancerre or Pouilly Fume, at half the price. Which sounds like pretty good value to us. So set aside pride and prejudice and leave yourself open to persuasion with this classic white wine.
  19. Bougrier Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine

    Bougrier Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    The family Bougrier were, by tradition, agricultural scientists. Their incredible achievements include the invention of a device for measuring the size of potatoes before digging them up, and a method for weighing cherries on a tree before they are picked. Their dream, however, was to find a way to lock particular aromas from the beautiful Touraine countryside into a tasty grape.

    After years of experiment they succeeded. They created a grape brimming with the clean, fresh scents of springtime hedgerows. Elderflowers, young nettles and cut grass. What's more, they discovered the flavours were even more appealing when the grapes were made into wine.
  20. Cannonball Chardonnay

    Cannonball Chardonnay 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Cannonball - a winery of high repute, making delicious, finely crafted wines - write of this 2014 Chardonnay that it "offers a sophisticated nose of lemon custard", which paints a rather silly picture.

    If anyone would like to send us their depiction of what "a sophisticated nose of lemon custard" looks like, we'd be most interested.

    Anyhoo, back to the wine. It's gorgeous. It balances zesty Granny apple and peaches with a vanilla pod creaminess, with a hint of buttery short crust pastry. Yowzer.
  21. 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.
  22. Casa Lluch Verdil Spanish White Wine

    Casa Lluch Verdil 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    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!
  23. Chateau de la Roulerie Anjou Blanc Wine France

    Château de la Roulerie Anjou Blanc 2016

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Steeped in exciting history, this wine is like a really good Brontë novel, or maybe a Dan Brown. Dating way back to 1070, Le Château de la Roulerie is a staggeringly beautiful, ivy-clad property that has one of the gently-sloped Loire Valley's few terraced vineyards. It is thought to take its name from a 14th century knight, Chevalier Raoul.

    Its more recent history has seen its winemaking facilities return to the Château after 20 years, under the supervision of current owner, Philippe Germain. Fashioned 100% from one of our favourite white grapes, this is a bracing, exotic wine that more than does justice to its idyllic surroundings.
  24. Chateau de la Roulerie Coteaux du Layon 2013 White Wine

    Château de la Roulerie Coteaux du Layon 2013

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Chateau de la Roulerie Coteaux Du Layon shows a beautiful golden colour, it is elegant, delicate and filled to the brim with jammy fruit aromas. A fresh and balanced white wine from the Loire Valleys with an enticing array of blood oranges, fig, peach, ginger and apricots both on the nose and the palate.
  25. Château Placelière Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie

    Château Placeliere Muscadet-Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2016 *ORGANIC*

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Muscadet is a gentle soul; kind of like the Joni Mitchell of the wine world; and its playful floral, citrusy charm has been coaxed out expertly in the hands of the Famille Lieubeau, who have been making wine in their lovely corner of the Loire Valley for six generations.

    Much the same as you wouldn't play techno at a folk festival in rural Oxfordshire, you wouldn't serve an oyster platter with Shiraz, you would serve it with this quince, pear and wet-stone Muscadet. Whilst playing Joni Mitchell.
  26. Chateau Unang Blanc White Wine

    Château Unang Blanc 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    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!
  27. Chablis Jules Billaud Burgundy Wine

    Chablis Jules Billaud 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    There's a lot of fuss in Chablis about a precocious new talent called Samuel Billaud, of Billaud-Simon fame. He's regarded as one of the best wine producers in the region and definitely one to keep an eye on.

    Luckily for us (and possibly down to a family feud... but we're staying out of it) he has decided to branch out on his own, so we're ecstatic to introduce the Jules Billaud Chablis, made by Samuel exclusively for Oddbins under his eldest son's name. It's guaranteed to grab you firmly by the Chablis.
  28. Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux 2015

    Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux 2015

    £29.00

    £29.00

    So Chablis. Right, it's bone dry, no oak, you might even say steely. Fetch it from a posh Premier Cru vineyard and then what happens? Tell you what, let's have a glass of that Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux then, made especially for Oddbins by Samuel Billaud, and find out.

    OK: all your white flowers and lime are there on the nose, but there's something else, on the palate - it's more delicate and balanced, with a subtle fruitiness. It's, well, elegant. A bit like you in your best frock/suit, sweetheart.

    So that's the difference, we suppose - normal Chablis: designer casuals, Premier Cru: that perfectly fitted dress/sharply tailored suit you only wear when you're really out to slay them. Sorted!
  29. Cheverny Blanc 'Les Bruyeres' 2015 White Wine

    Cheverny Blanc 'Les Bruyeres' 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    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.
  30. Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc

    Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £25.00

    £25.00

    When Marlborough first acquired its reputation for producing world class Sauvignon Blancs, that was largely down to Cloudy Bay. To this day, their vibrant white wine continues to be one of the best of this variety in the region.

    Citric aromas of zesty lemon, Kaffir lime and nectarine intermingle with orange blossom on the nose before dominating the palate with ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon. These are framed with a sleek and succulent acidity providing great structure.
  31. Cop de Ma Blanca  White Wine

    Cop de Ma Blanca 2014

    Now £7.20

    Was £8.00

    £7.20

    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!
  32. Coteaux Du Giennois L'Oselier White Wine

    Coteaux Du Giennois L'Oselier 2015

    £13.75

    £13.75

    The grape vines in the Loire Valley had taken a hiding the last few years. When Mother Nature finished flinging harrowing hail she summoned sizzingly searing summers. The weather gods wrath resulted in lower harvests and ...more importantly increased prices of the famous wines of Sancerre and Pouilly Fume. Fear not damsels and dudes who adore these wines! Our knight in shining amour comes galloping from the slopes of the Cote Du Giennois. Heralding shining crispness, armed with orange, pears and flinty flavours. A heroic alternative to our aforementioned, besieged friends and a Sauvignon to shield us during hard times.
  33. Dalrymple Cave Block Chardonnay White Wine

    Dalrymple Cave Block Chardonnay 2013

    £25.00

    £25.00

    Immediately upon opening are the delicious aromas of apple blossom and white peach, complimented by hints of crushed caper and cinnamon. Notes of fresh quince and spice add to the wines complexity. The palate is well structured and complex thanks to ageing in French barriques, leading to a clean fresh finish.
  34. De Loach Heritage Reserve Chardonnay 2013

    De Loach Heritage Reserve Chardonnay 2013

    £14.00

    £14.00

    And it's nil-nil at half time here at the Britannia Stadium, where Stoke City are playing Biodynamo Moscow. And what's going on here - the Moscow keeper has dug a hole in his penalty area and taken out a cow's horn full of dried poo. Oh my goodness, he's now spreading it all over Biodynamo's half of the pitch, and while we wait for kick-off he's planting vicia to bring rejuvenating nitrogen to the soil.

    Well, Brian, after twenty years of football commentary I have never witnessed this kind of behaviour during an international friendly. The keeper's miles away from his goal, but that doesn't matter because Stoke City can't get past his luxurious crop of vines!

    And at the full-time whistle it's off to the changing rooms to enjoy a glass of the Stadium's delicious house white wine. It's a Chardonnay, with gorgeous tropical fruit flavours enriched with orange blossom and melon. Now that's what I call a result!
  35. 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.
  36. Ventus White Wine

    Del Fin Del Mundo Ventus White 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Someone finally got them together. It's like two friends that have always had a thing for each other but never hit it off. Ventus White is that couple that finally got together. Like that damn film Clueless. Or When Harry met Sally...or When Tropical Met Citrus Fruits finally admit love last minute in the airport departure lounge. Somehow it totally works and they both sit down for a meal and a glass of wine. This wine is our kind of 'Friend with Benefits'.
  37. Dig This! Chenin Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Dig This! Chenin Sauvignon Blanc 2017

    £7.50

    £7.50

    Of all the pirates of the Western Cape, none were more infamous than Captain Cork. Indeed, so legendary were his deeds, some believed he was simply a myth, a bogeyman. But when Klaas stumbled upon an ancient map of the Province, he was sure it pointed the way to Cork's treasure.

    He spent months digging, finding nothing, growing increasingly frustrated until he gave up. However, on returning some years later, newly determined to uncover the horde, Klaas found vines had rooted themselves in the many holes he'd half-dug. The place was dripping with golden grapes, like pieces of eight; a wealth of precious juice. He just needed to swap his spade for secateurs and the treasure was all his!
  38. Dolia Sauvignon Blanc

    Dolia Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £7.25

    £7.25

    Dolia. A refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from Gascony, SW France. But, little did we know, it is also a defunct Bishop's seat in Sardinia, founded in 1100 AD. Well, this got us interested in this Mediterranean isle and we discovered, gleefully, that the word "sardonic" comes from the result of a native herb that causes convulsive laughter in its victims. Who knew?
    Anyway, like we said, this is a clean, crisp drop of white wine and would make a good plus one at any party.
  39. Domaine Condamine Viognier White Wine

    Domaine Condamine Viognier 2016

    £12.00

    £12.00

    It's a hot day, you're meandering through the picturesque streets of Nézignan-l'Evêque. A Citroen 2CV filled with fruit, preserves and wild flora trundles past you up the hill towards the market. The driver is a little French chap, you know the sort; onions, beret, cigarette and a stripy t-shirt.

    Momentarily distracted by a passing beauty he doesn't notice the steepness of the incline and opens the boot with a flourish. Produce tumbles from the vehicle down the slope. You are buried in an avalanche of apricots, peaches, honey and flowers. That's what this wine tastes like!
  40. Domaine de Coudoulet Viognier 2015

    Domaine de Coudoulet Viognier 2016

    Roses and red, violets are blue, try this wine when you can't afford Condrieu.' In other words, this silky white wine gives you everything you want from a Viognier - without having to sell an organ to afford the dizzying prices of the premium Condrieu.

    No kidneying around here. Plenty of peach, pineapple, honey blossom and mango flavours. Also an excellent pairing with monkfish... whilst tampering with traditional nursery rhymes.

    Domaine La Tour Beaumont Haut-Poitou 2016

    £11.50

    If someone was to tune into The Only Way is Essex, even if they didn't know what the programme was, you can be fairly sure that they can identify the county in question. Likewise, if you were to tune into Rab C. Nesbitt, you could probably pin it down to Glasgow.

    That's because they have a strong sense of place and it's a similar thing with the Haut-Poitou Sauvignon: its gooseberry, lime and blackcurrant leaf flavours are unmistakably Loire Valley and this is one channel you'll always be glad to tune into.
  42. Domaine Parisse Macon Fuisse 2015 White Wine

    Domaine Parisse Mâcon Fuissé 2015

    £19.00

    £19.00

    Now, we're going to tell you something but you need to promise not to scream... Macon-Fuisse is made with Chardonnay, in fact virtually all white Burgundy is. We know, we know this must be terriably harrowing. What has Chardonnay ever done to deserve this reputation. Snooty guys standing around wine bars declaring, "I follow the drinking rule ABC... anything but Chardonnay, hahaha." Bad snooty guy, that's not funny and it's terriably misinformed! The fact is, white Burgundy is one of the finest wine styles in the world and Macon-Fuisse Parisse is no exception. With it's lovely, creamy texture and intense notes of white peach and honeysuckle, wines like this will bring Chardonnay back into fashion faster than platform shoes!
  43. Donnafugata Anthilia 2014 white wine

    Donnafugata Anthilia 2014

    £13.50

    £13.50

    Donnafugata means 'fleeing woman'; a reference to Queen Maria Carolina, who escaped to Sicily during the French Revolution. This survival spirit continued at Donnafugata, where, as sales of Marsala started to drop off in Marsala, they began making top quality 'table' wines instead. Championing local grapes such as Catarratto and Ansonica - which appear alongside Viognier and Chardonnay in this white - they are total pros at coaxing out grape characteristics. With summery fragrances of Mediterranean vegetation, mingling with jasmine notes and peachy fruit, we're sure glad they survived to make Anthilia.

    Nobody thought Pierre could actually tell which grapes had gone into any given wine just by using his nose. But that is what he boasted. Down to the very vine the grapes that made it came from.

    To throw him off the scent, sceptical colleagues mixed together crisp, grassy Sauvignon and citrussy Semillon and presented Pierre with two buckets, challenging him to tell them which was which. After a few sniffs, Pierre looked at them contemptuously and said with a Gallic shrug: 'Ha! You crossed the buckets!' They drank the mixture anyway. The blend was so delicious they continue to make it today, using only Pierre's nose to finalise the exact percentage of each batch.
  45. Dry by Tokaj 2013 Hungarian White Wine

    Dry by Tokaj 2013

    £12.50

    £12.50

    There are two 'wowzer' elements to this white. Firstly, it's Hungarian, which is as rare as hen's teeth on UK wine shelves. Secondly, it's a dry version of the world-renowned amber nectar that is Tokaj dessert wine.

    The grape in question - Furmint - is usually left to go mouldy and 'botritise', which concentrates the sugars. But what happens if you don't let the wine go mouldy and you make a dry wine in the usual fashion?

    Well, Dry Furmint is a new phenomenon and we are happy to say that Dry by Tokaj is leading the way with this crisp, mineral, quince and orange blossom firecracker.
  46. Dry Riesling Bergrettung Trocken Mosel White Wine Germany

    Dry Riesling Bergrettung Trocken Mosel 2014

    £17.50

    £17.50

    This wine has a fantastic story. It comes from a collaboration between 10 wineries to save historic vineyards in particularly steep sites in Germany's beautiful Mosel Valley. The group's name, Bergrettung, takes its name from Berg (= mountain) and Rettung (= rescue). This vintage was made at the Staffelter Hof winery, whose owners trace back directly to Carl the Great and who founded Bergrettung. The wine? Impressively pure and super concentrated, this essentially dry Riesling balances pronounced wet slate minerality, with a zesty, acidic core and fantastic lime, mango and white peach fruit.
  47. Emiliana Natura Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Emiliana Natura Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Rick Blaine may claim he went to Casablanca for the waters, but we're pretty sure he would have been much less disappointed if someone had informed him of all the amazing wines made there instead. After all, we don't know about any waters that will give you zesty lime aromas and crunchy fruit flavours like this lively and zippy Sauvignon Blanc does.

    Move the gin aside, Rick, and forget about Ilsa. It's about time you set your sights on a new love and there's a new girl in town; Emiliana.
  48. Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 2015 White Wine

    Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 2015

    £18.00

    £18.00

    Erden is a village on the banks of the Mosel river. Treppchen literally means staircase, and refers to the terrace steps cut into the precipitous slopes of the valley opposite, on which the good people of Erden cultivate some of the finest Riesling grapes to be found anywhere in the World.

    And the wine they make from it is proper Riesling. Full of exotic floral and fruit aromas, a heady whiff of petroleum and, yes, sweetness, too. This is proper Riesling, the way it should be. Wine for grown ups.
