White Wine Selection

Welcome to our white wine shop. As well as plentiful Chardonnays, much-loved Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand and some terrific Rieslings, we hope your interest will also be peaked by some of our less well-known varieties of white wine. Why not try one of our award-winning Portuguese wines, the almost unheard of Verdil from Valencia, or Assyrtiko, grown on the volcanic Greek island, Santorini? There is also a strong offering from Australia and South Africa so, whatever your white wine preferences, we are confident you will find something here.

To help narrow your search from nearly forty varieties of white wine from across the globe, use our 'Refine By' tools to either select a particular grape or filter our white wine selection by country, price and the wine's characteristics. If you still can't decide or would simply like some help, please give us a call or drop us an e-mail where one of the friendly souls at Oddbins will be more than happy to help.

  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 Chavy Chassagne-Montrachet, 'Les Chenes' 2013 France White Wine

    Alain Chavy Chassagne-Montrachet, 'Les Chenes' 2013

    £45.00

    £45.00

    While Patsy and Eddie (our old pals off of Ab Fab) may not think so, many people think that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. This Burgundy white wine has that classic simplicity. Which isn’t to say that, like a sharply tailored, ergonomic, becoming suit, it has depth of detail, class and attention to details.

    Ripe, but never over-ripened, fruit perfectly balance with a fresh acidity, stony minerality from the soils it was grown and a rich round mouth feel that exudes from the rightfully confident wine that it is, sweety darling.

  3. Domaine Chavy Puligny Montrachet French White Wine 2013

    Alain Chavy Puligny Montrachet 2013

    £45.00

    £45.00

    In 1994, the Domaine Gérard Chavy family estate was split in two between brothers Alain and Jean-Louis, who had formerly the estate together. Jean-Louis went his way and Alain went his.

    We don’t want to wade in on this French familial affair, but we do want to wade in with our opinions on Alain’s winemaking skills: he’s blooming talented! He makes this shimmying, sassy, apricot and lime-imbued jewel of a white wine in his half of the domaine and ages it in what is one of the few underground wine cellars in Burgundy, where this Pulighny-Montrachet has aged sublimely. To be savoured.

    £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.

  5. Albert Bichot Chablis french wine

    Albert Bichot Chablis 2014

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Albert Bichot’s family wine business goes back a whopping six generations. That means that they were making wine when the first plane took off, when Benjamin Disraeli was in power (both times) and when Beethoven was composing his Fifth Symphony.

    Indeed, like young Ludwig, though this wine does not possess the faculty of hearing, it is a pitch-perfect, accomplished performer that interprets its influences perfectly.

    In this Chablis’ case, that means that the limestone slopes of Chablis are conveyed as a stunningly fresh and elegant, symphony of a wine. It’s an Ode to Joy.

    Meursault is the silk-clad Prince Charming of Burgundy; it is an idyllic village, known to wine lovers everywhere for the town hall’s multi-coloured tiled roof, that makes wines of mesmeric complexity and texture.

    Romping in on a statuesque steed, it gathers you up to its creamy depths before beguiling you with white peach, toasted almonds and bursting into a zippy, lemon-fuelled gallop. You’ll be left transported and breathless.

    £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.

  8. Anna's Way Sauvignon Blanc White Wine

    Anna's Way Sauvignon Blanc 2012

    £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. Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Wine
    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!

    £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!

    Sometimes in life you just want to keep things simple. Your furniture minimalist, your walls whitewashed, your white wine crisp, clean and clear. Like a Loire Muscadet.

    Little wonder it’s famously the perfect match for oysters – after all, what could be simpler than a delicacy taken straight from the sea and consumed raw, fresh and unadulterated.

    Just a squeeze of lemon, perhaps a dash of Tabasco, and a well-chilled Muscadet, beads of condensation trickling down the wine glass. Ah, sometimes the simple things in life truly are the best…

    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.

    £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.

    Cannonball – a winery of high repute, making delicious, finely crafted wines – write of this 2012 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.

    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!

    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.

    Steeped in exciting history, this wine is like a really good Brontë novel, or maybe a Dan Brown. Dating way back to 1070, Le Chateau 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 Chateau 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

Before Baume (pronounced “Bow may”) invented the hydrometer, the amount of alcohol in a wine was somewhat left to chance. Straws were drawn, and the task of tasting wine during fermentation, through that very straw, went to the person with the shortest.

    Often, the results were devastating. Sometimes the levels of alcohol even dissolved the straw. Until Antoine, or 'The Baume', as he's fondly known amongst discerning wine makers, came up with the goods

    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.

    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.

This vintage was made at the Staffelter Hof winery, whose owners trace back directly to Carl the Great and who founded Bergrettung. The wine?

    It’s spring. The sun is just warming up over the Spanish wild meadow you are walking though. To your delight, you hear the tinkling of a stream nearby, adding a serene musical background to the firm crunch of the soil under foot.

    Sweet fragrances of fennel, bay and cereal abound, combining with fresh quince and pear notes from the orchard just ahead. This isn’t a walk we’re describing, people; this is wine. This is El Quintanal Verdejo and it’s yours for £10. Not ‘alf bad.

  42. Erdener Treppchen German Riesling White Wine

    Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 2011

    £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.

  43. Falanghina Biblos White Wine Italy

    Falanghina Biblos 2015

    The Italian region of Molise was plagued by vampires, who had rampaged through the Balkans and across the Adriatic before the Pope could bless the sea, frying them in a spray of holy water. Luckily the locals were experts in the manufacture of stakes, in Latin “falangae”, and swiftly despatched the evil horde.

    Once the task was completed the ground was littered with stakes. So the locals collected them up and used them for pinning their beloved vines in place. The name of this white wine, Falanghina, is a homage to the stakes of Molise.

  44. Falerio dei Colli Ascolani White Wine

    Falerio Saladini Pilastri 2015

    £9.50

    £9.50

    The infinite (well, 500 plus) variety of grapes to be found in Italy is a source of constant wonderment. Of these varieties – Trebbiano, Passerina and Pecorino – go particularly well together. Found in the Marche region on the east coast of central Italy, they have combined to form, in this instance, a wine with gentle chamomile and acacia flavours, apple-y acidity and surprising body. Maybe wine is just a numbers game and the more grapes you have, the more chance of lovely wine. It’s one theory anyway!

    We bet Voegtlinshoffen wasn’t exactly the first place the Wright brothers considered when conquering the airplane. However if they did, they would have discovered the birthplace of family-owned winery now belonging to Jacques and Jean Marie Cattin. They would then discover wines like this here Riesling, golden in colour with subtle notes of peach and a thirst-quenching dryness.

    So if you’re ever soaring over France, squinting down at ol’ Voegtlinshoffen, take a moment to salute those Cattin brothers for their hard work, or better yet, pick up a bottle of this delicious Riesling and prepare to take flight!

    There’s more to Loire valley Sauvignon than Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. Even occasionally more than just Sauvignon Blanc. This lesser known gem of a white wine delivers all the bone dry, nettles and flint crispness you’d expect from it’s better known near neighbours, but with 15% Chardonnay added to this blend there’s just a hint of something richer, rounder and riper that will take you pleasantly by surprise. And without a big name premium its something of a bargain to boot!

  47. Fedele Catarratto Pinot Grigio Terre Siciliane IGP 2015

    Pinot Grigio is the ugly duckling of wine grapes, and people tend to forget what a good Pinot Grigio tastes like and how refreshing they usually are.

    The Fedele is actually a blend of Catarratto, which gives some body, cream and some delicate pear and ripe melon flavours, whilst the Pinot Grigio brings some hints of peach and stoned fruit and an incredible freshness.

    Try it in summertime and you might forget that it is always a bit cloudy in the UK. Drink it during winter and you might forget about the rain.

    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...
