  1. 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!

  2. Bougrier Rosé d'Anjou 2016

    Bougrier Rosé d'Anjou 2016

    Ah, summertime, when the living is easy, fish are jumping and it's time for rose wine - or something along those lines. And of course, kicking back, shoes off, feet up, on the porch or a picnic blanket in the park is where pink wine comes into its own, but you know what? Why wait?

    It's great as an aperitif any time, or as an accompaniment to lightly spicy food. Or for turning a rainy Tuesday into a lazy, hazy summer Sunday...

    Given the poise of this unctuous, zesty dessert wine we'll forgive you for pronouncing it's name wrong. Admit it. You read it as "no bell won" didn't you? And a noble one it is indeed. However, the correct pronunciation is 'knobbly one' in reference to the shape of the grapes used to make this beauty.

    You see, the grapes stay on the vine as the season lingers, waiting for the right conditions. The right conditions being the wrong conditions, usually. Wet and warm, and perfect for fungus. Normally, you wouldn't want that. But this Botrytis fungus desiccates the grapes, concentrates the sugars, and leaves a high acidity. Turns them into knobbly little buttons full of butterscotch and quince, glacé pineapple, and citrus marmalade flavours! The grapes might be ugly, but looks aren't everything. This is one of the most awarded wines in history. Maybe we should start pronouncing it 'no bell won'.

  4. First Creek Hunter Valley Semillon White Wine

    First Creek Hunter Valley Semillon 2014

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Hunter Valley in New South Wales might not be the first place you'd think of if you wanted to plant a vineyard, even though it is Australia's oldest wine region. The weather's all wrong, the summer sky is frequently covered by cloud and it gets most of its yearly rainfall in three months of unrelieved sogginess. But there's no truth, however, in the rumour that it's been twinned with St. Helens.

    First Creek Semillon is a wonderful expression of a classic Hunter Valley grape, light and imbued with citrus and orange blossom, but developing weight and softness over five years bottle ageing. But let's not wait, eh, it's fairing up a bit, we should enjoy it while we can!

  5. Lambrusco Cialdini 2016

    Lambrusco Cialdini 2016

    £14.00

    If there’s one things those Italians do rather well it’s a good old renaissance. One second you’re in the dark ages farming turnips, the next Michelangelo’s up some scaffolding painting babies on the ceiling. Well, that’s what we learned in Oddbins history class, anyway. Lambrusco is the latest Italian to experience a renaissance. For a while you’d avoid the guest who brought you a bottle of that glorified Cherryade like they were a member of the Borgias family. No longer, wines like Villa Cialdini Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro are defining the category. Ruby red in colour, with plenty of bright bubbles. On the nose it has a fresh, pronounced and very fine fruity scent. On the palate the wine is delicate, tangy and well-balanced, with pleasant refreshing acidity, floral notes and forest fruits on the finish. A wine fit for Da Vinci!
