  1. Château Capbern Gasqueton Saint-Estèphe 2012 France Bordeaux Red Wine

    Château Capbern Gasqueton Saint-Estèphe 2012

    £30.00

    £30.00

    The marvellous thing about good Saint-Estèphe is the flood of minerality that can streak through it and the ample black fruit character that balances it out. Well, this wine doesn't have any of that... Only joking (we're funny aren't we!) Don't worry, the 2008 Château Capbern Gasqueton has all that in bucket loads and, what's more, it won't attempt Dad-humour... *hangs head in shame*. This is a classy Saint-Estèphe from a Château that has stayed in the family from 10 generations no less and, in that time, they've seriously honed the art of winemaking.

  2. Chateau de Ricaud Cadillac Red Wine

    Château de Ricaud Cadillac 2012

    £14.00

    £14.00

    The Cadillac luxury car became so popular in America that the term 'The Cadillac of...' meant the best thing in that category. In 1980, Alain Thiénot bought a bottle of Château de Ricaud Cadillac in a posh restaurant in Paris. He must have been tempted to exclaim with a snigger 'This is the Cadillac of all red wines!', but instead he was so flabbergasted by the complex bouquet of strawberry, cherry and liqourice, he bought the estate! Thiénot went on to make this winery a Côtes de Bordeaux benchmark producer. True story.

  3. Chateau Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur

    Château Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    The Chateau de Haute-Serre Grand Vin Seigneur Malbec is very dark in colour, with highlights of crimson. This exceptional red has a noteworthy balance with an intense concentration and elegant finesse demonstrating the power of a great malbec with its complexity. From opening the bottle immediately is the powerful bouquet of Morello cherry, blackcurrant and spice. The fresh and fruity nose is reflected on the palate which has a long, silky smooth after taste, typical of the vineyard.

  4. Chateau La Vieille Cure Fronsac 2006

    Château La Vieille Cure Fronsac 2006

    £26.00

    £26.00

    What does this lovely Bordeaux and the brilliant electronic artist Aphex Twin have in common? They both use Rollands to produce their work. Aphex Twin uses a Roland keyboard and the Chateau is assisted by the Rolland laboratory...Now, this may be a tenuous link and the spelling not all there, but it's an excuse to crack open a bottle of this red and enjoy Aphex Twin's long awaited album 'Syro'! Harmonious blackcurrant, cherry and herbal notes, in tune with chocolate and oaky rhythms.

  5. Château Le Virou Carmel d'Aiguevives Côtes de Bordeaux Blaye 2012

    Château Le Virou Carmel d'Aiguevives Côtes de Bordeaux Blaye 2015

    £11.00

    £11.00

    We say the following with the utmost affection for Château le Virou, as they are clearly very capable winemakers and have certainly charmed us with this silky, blackcurrant and dark chocolate-fruited cracker... but it nearly broke us trying to work out what they were talking about when describing the Château's history.

    In their words (via that most devious of translators, Google), they say: "On the road which curves of Blaye with Saint Savin, halfway between these two cities, a severe wall does not fail to intrigue the walker, seeming to dissimulate some mysterious residence to him." Exactly.

  6. Château Plaisance-Branne Montagne-Saint-Emilion 2011

    Château Plaisance-Branne Montagne-Saint-Emilion 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    'Plaisance' means 'pleasure' in English, and boy, is that a fitting name for this Bordeaux beauty. Smooth as silk, with a plump, red fruit character that makes you think you just stumbled head-first into a fruit crumble, this is Pleasure with a capital P.

    Naturally, this red wine complements other pleasurable things such as cosying up in a warm armchair, succeeding at the crossword, and awesome cheese, to name but a few.

    Even bad cheeses, failing at crosswords and a hard stool can be made unwaveringly pleasurable with the addition of Château Plaisance-Branne. Quite a talent, we think you'll agree.

  7. Dalrymple Pinot Noir Red Wine

    Dalrymple Pinot Noir 2013

    £29.00

    £29.00

    This wine is produced from the pinot noir grape, giving its deep garnet colour. On the nose it has lifted ripe black plum aroma, hints of wild blackberry and raspberry beneath highlights of fine spices derived from the gentle grained French oak.

    On the palate immediate appeal with sweetness of ripe fruits, fine fruit tannins that balance the oak to provide structure right through to the smooth lingering finish.

  8. 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!

  9. De  Loach Heritage Reserve Zinfandel White Wine

    De Loach Heritage Reserve Zinfandel 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    Zinfandel, it's the all-American grape whose bright and bold red fruit flavours bring the Californian sun to Blighty, right? Erm, no. In the 1970s, a USA expert confirmed that the grape was genetically identical to Italy's Primitivo grape and, in 1998, the University of California launched an enquiry, now known as the 'Zinquest', that further matched Zinfandel/Primitivo's DNA profile to a grape grown to the north of the Croatian town of Split, known locally as Crljenak Kaštelanski.

    And then they found it again, south of Split, under the local name of Pribidrag. Very local indeed, in fact, as the entire growth was in an old lady's back garden! Investigations continue to this day, but in the meantime just sit back and relax in the warmth of this hearty, juicy and spice-infused down-home American red wine.

  10. De Martino Legado Carménère 2014

    De Martino Legado Carmenere 2015

    £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.

  11. Denatile Nero D'Avola Shiraz Italian Red Wine

    Denatile Nero D'Avola Shiraz 2016

    £6.75

    £6.75

    Deep red in colour, rich and well balanced. The bouquet is fruity, floral and spicy, with hints of vanilla and tobacco. Round and full on the palate, with soft tannins, this wine is ideal served with mature cheese, oven-baked pasta or roasted meats.

  12. 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!

  13. Dig This! Shiraz Merlot 2016

    Dig This! Shiraz Merlot 2016

    £7.50

    £7.50

    There were so many pirates at one point in the seas around the Cape that the nearby land became infested with escaped parrots. These parrots had a penchant for ripe, fruity grapes; and given the seasonal glut, they soon learned to bury their food for the harder months to come. The holes Klaas had half-dug, unsuccessful in his search to uncover Captain Cork's legendary horde, proved the perfect hiding place!

    But parrots, of course, are famously forgetful. It was only a matter of time before those buried grapes burst into vine. When Klaas returned to the Province to resume his search, the place was laden with ruby jewels! He just needed to harvest these riches to have his spade work pay off.

  14. Domaine Gardies 'Les Millères' Rouge

    Domaine Gardies 'Les Millères' Rouge 2014

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Not one, not two, not... actually we'll just tell you: no less than seven generations of the Gardies family have made wine in the village of Vingrau in Rousillon. But current owner Jean Gardiés is showing no signs of crumbling under the pressure; he's positively blooming, as are his vines (smooth, we know), whose small yields produce critically acclaimed wines like this intense, bright garnet-red, softly spicy beauty.

  15. 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.

  16. Emiliana Natura Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Red Wine

    Emiliana Natura Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Cabernet Sauvignon was the envy of everyone at the gym. Trim, tight tannins and deep, dark fleshed fruit meant this grape could effortlessly move to the music and the trainer's every demand. Invigorated with dynamic characters of blackcurrant, plums, damson and mint, Pinot Noir and pal Syrah could only jealously glare; they simply couldn't compete with Cab's limitless fitness and grace.

  17. Emiliana Natura Carménère 2015 Red Wine

    Emiliana Natura Carmenere 2016

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Carménére is the beautiful stranger that was always there. This enigmatic red grape came from out of nowhere a few decades back and stayed to haunt peoples tastes and memory. Its distinct red fruits, full body and herbal flavours are that intriguing character you met at dinner the other night. The old school friend you found by chance at the bar. Or the interesting traveller you blundered into on the train. You just never noticed Carménére before, until now.

  18. Emiliana Natura Viognier 2015

    Emiliana Natura Viognier 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    We all have that one friend we secretly envy and chances are she has a pretty name like, say... Emiliana. Emiliana is a big softy whose natural demeanour makes her extremely popular. And why does she always smell so good?! It's as though she bathes in papaya, apricot and honeysuckle.

    Well, whatever it is, we want it too and as much as you'd like to dislike her for being so wonderful, you've got to admit her company is always pretty refreshing. You just can't help but adore her.

  19. Famille Perrin Tavel Rose 2016

    Famille Perrin Tavel Rosé 2016

    £16.00

    £16.00

    People can be funny about Rosé, often they'll hold it up to natural light, slowly rotating the bottle like they're a noted Bond Street jeweller. Hoping to see straight through, announcing; "the paler the better!" This style is very popular and normally associated with Provence but now hang on, this wine is actually quite dark. Don't worry, it's still dry and it's still refreshing, it's just the style of Tavel wines and very good it is too! In fact, Philip IV is supposed to have travelled through Tavel, where was offered a glass of wine, which he emptied without getting off his horse. Afterwards he proclaimed Tavel the only good wine in the world. Take that Provence... and well, every other wine in the world!

  20. Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini Red Wine

    Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini Riserva 2014

    £21.00

    £21.00

    Do you remember in the 70s (probably not, you're probably a spritely young gent/madam) when Brits used to think of Chianti as the wine equivalent of ABBA: Sure, you know it and you're going to tap your feet to the beat, you might even recite a couple of lyrics of Dancing Queen but you don't really want your friends to see. Chianti came in those big round bottles, that for some reason had been whickered all-round the base and every Italian restaurant in the country used them as Candle holders. Thank the Italian heavens that those days are over. Wines like this are some of the finest to come out of Tuscany, with concentrated notes of sour cherry and tomato leaf, combined with a surprising age ability, Chianti is quickly becoming the wine equivalent of Led Zeppelin; we got a 'Whole Lotta Love'!

  21. Gaia Estate Notios Greek Red Wine 2014

    Gaia Estate Notios Red 2015

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Well it winds from Levidi to Nemea/More than 50 kilometres all the way/Get your kicks on GR66! OK, perhaps it doesn't have the same ring as Chuck Berry's Route 66, we'll grant you, but if you do take that Peloponnese trip and turn off GR66, you'll end up in Gaia Estate's winery in gorgeous Koutsi, Nemea.

    It's every bit as pretty as Oklahoma City and, while you're there you can get hip to this gorgeously elegant, red-berried and velvet-lined Agiorgitiko and Syrah blend. Or failing that, you could just come and get your kicks - and the wine - in any one of our shops!

  22. Incienso Malbec Red Wine Argentina

    Incienso Malbec 2014

    £7.50

    £7.50

    You can do a lot with £7.50. You could buy some hair dye and go strawberry blonde. You could buy a decent quality ball point pen. Or! You could buy yourself a taste of the Argentine countryside, fresh blackberries and an oomph of hot spice from the gusty plains at the foot of the Andes. And, whilst you can't beat a high quality biro, we'd take the wine any day. Obvz.

  23. Colombo Côtes du Rhône Le Vent Rouge 2014

    Jean-Luc Colombo Côtes du Rhône Le Vent Rouge 2015

    £10.00

    £10.00

    If you're considering a career winemaking, as with many things in life, there are many ways to skin a cat. But a good place to start is in the lab - as it gives you a thorough understanding of the nuts and bolts of the liquid itself - and this is just what Jean-Luc Colombo did.

    But the lab wasn't enough for Jean-Luc, who now roams freely around his vineyard instead, making beautiful, affordable wines like Le Vent Rouge, which has appealing redcurrant and bay leaf aromas and a fresh 'n' silky palate.

  24. Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2015 New Zealand White Wine

    Kumeu River Estate Chardonnay 2015

    £25.00

    £25.00

    We want to know what on earth James Bay was drinking when he started singing about holding rivers back. We mean, has he ever actually tried stopping a river? We imagine it'd be rather difficult.

    Though, we're sure he wouldn't be so keen on such a thankless job if he'd been drinking this Chardonnay instead. A rich and approachable white wine with nectarine, pink grapefruit, guava and peach; nobody in their right mind would dream of holding Kumeu River back after tasting this wonder.

    Hold your horses, James, put your feet up and crack open a bottle instead. Let Kumeu River run freely! And most importantly, keep the Chardonnay flowing...

  25. La Crema Chardonnay 2014 Californian White Wine

    La Crema Chardonnay 2014

    £18.50

    £18.50

    Careful with the cork, now. Pop. And close your eyes. Warm scents of cherry pie and cocoa. Black tea from nearby cafés in avenues of plum and pomegranate. You're nearby the ocean, soft heat rising from the earth. Hear the wash of the waves. Water breaking gently into foam. Cream. Like the surface of fine coffee. La Crema, as they call it on the Sonoma Coast.

  26. La Granja 360 Tempranillo Garnacha 2016

    La Granja 360 Tempranillo Garnacha 2016

    £7.50

    £7.50

    Not everything is black and white. Take a badger for example. That's mostly grey. But poor old zebras. Well. Yes. They pretty much are black and white. Which is fine. But what if you're a zebra with ambition? With the will to be different. What do you do about that?

    One zebra tried his best to break the pattern. He feasted on colourful flowers; nibbled bright stones; drank from crystal pools. But nothing worked. Until one night, asleep in a state of despair, the zebra dreamt he drank a glass of ruby wine. Cherries fell from the sky, and the subtle scent of incense filled the air. And when the zebra woke, to its surprise, it found the colour of its stripes had changed. All it takes is a little imagination, and this wine will transform you too.

  27. La Purisma Monastrell 2015

    La Purísima Monastrell 2015

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Bodegas has gone from strength to strength since it was founded in 1975, creating confident wines such as La Purísma Monastrell. A deep ruby in colour, with intense fruity flavours of ripe blackberry on the nose before an elegant palate leads you through to a long velvety finish. Farmers, we thank you.

  28. La Purisma Syrah Spanish Red

    La Purísima Syrah 2014

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Bodegas La Purísima was founded in in 1946 by a forward-thinking group of farmers who recognised the potential of their land to produce better quality wines. Their sustained efforts led to the creation of the coveted' Denomination Origin' of Yecla in 1975.

    Quite some achievement - and the bodegas has gone from strength to strength, these days creating confident wines such as La Purisma Syrah. A deep ruby in colour, with intense flavours of violets and flourishes of spicy black fruit. Farmers, we thank you.

  29. Lani Gewurztraminer NZ White Wine

    Lani Gewurztraminer 2013

    £16.50

    £16.50

    We understand how important winemaker Alana McGettigan is to the wineries of Europe, but we're delighted that this little bird decided to fly back to her New Zealand nest to create this home-grown beauty. Alana's talent and experience shines through in this Kiwi Gewürz and it's great to see her flourish in her stomping ground. It is balanced and restrained, singing a song of spices and far-out fruits, like star anise and guava. We're sounding like lovebirds now, but we just can't stop tweeting about it!

  30. Le Petit Haut Lafite Blanc Pessac 2015 White Wine

    Le Petit Haut Lafitte Blanc Pessac 2015

    £34.00

    £34.00

    For centuries, locals in a small corner of Pessac Leognan have followed a singular tradition to appoint apprentice winemakers. While coveted, the apprenticeship comes with responsibility, and those chosen have no say. The position is decided by fate.

    Every five years, youths gather outside the vineyard to file past the Master of Ceremonies. As they pass, an ancient beret once worn by the region's most esteemed vigneron is placed upon their head. Tiny as he was, the beret is generally too small. But, each time the beret drops snuggly on a bonce a new apprentice is proclaimed. As they say, raising a glass, "if the Haut Lafittes, wear it!"

  31. Lismore Pinot Noir 2016

    Lismore Pinot Noir 2016

    £28.00

    £28.00

    The grapes of these wines are grown on Hebridean soil, on the Isle of Lismore, in the middle of Loch Linnhe. O wait, that's a big fat lie; for one the Isle of Lismore has a population of 146 people and we're not sure you're even able to ripen potatoes there let alone grapes. Despite the fact this wine is a Pinot Noir from the Western Cape of South Africa, perhaps the link to Scotland is not such a bizarre one. The wine is rugged, tart, earthy and rich with woody spice; that sounds like a Scotsman alright. Surely this Pinot is destined to brighten the weather-beaten lives of the 146 on Lismore.

  32. Lismore Syrah 2016

    Lismore Syrah 2016

    £29.00

    £29.00

    Who hasn't dreamt of packing up their day job in California, flying half way around the world and establishing a boutique vineyard in the Western Cape, with only the wise cracking Timon & Pumbaa for neighbours. Well, while you're at your desk, starring at last quarter's performance of 2B pencils, humming "Hakuna Matata," Samantha O'Keefe is out their living it!

    To be honest, managing a vineyard probably doesn't mean "no worries for the rest of your days;" it's actually really hard work. The sun might burn all your grapes and in South Africa a Hippo might just decide to trample through your Chardonnay planting. Maybe it's a smarter idea to leave the Oenology to Samantha and simply unwind with her wonderfully smooth and elegant Syrah; that way you don't have to pack up your stuff and somehow get it to South Africa.

  33. Lothian 'Isobel' Rosé 2016

    Lothian 'Isobel' Rosé 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Isobel was different. She had bearing. Poise. She commanded the room effortlessly, without intent. Perhaps it shouldn't have been a surprise when the genealogist knocked on the winery door and announced Isobel descended from royalty. He assured her he wanted nothing for the information, other than proof his findings were true.

    They went with the age old test. But rather than a pea, they placed a ripe mourvèdre grape beneath Isobel's mattress. The following morning, there it was. Perfectly uncrushed. To mark the news, they turned the rest of the grapes to Rosé. A celebration of pomegranates, sweet anise and red fruits, as elegant and blushing as the princess herself.

  34. Lothian Pinot Noir 2013 South African Red Wine

    Lothian Pinot Noir 2015

    £18.50

    £18.50

    South African reds are all dark, meaty and chewy as biltong right? Well no, not all of them. As Bob Dylan famously sang "the wines they are a changin'." Either way this is something new and very, very special.

    Produced by a Scottish family, this is cool-climate Burgundian elegance from the southern hemisphere. Dispel those dark thoughts and turn towards the light.

  35. Luis Alegre Crianza Rioja Red Wine

    Luis Alegre Crianza 2014 - Rioja Alavesa

    £13.75

    £13.75

    Boasting a madcap building that looks like a spaceship has landed in the middle of the Rioja countryside, the Luis Alegre winery is an innovative set up that successfully contrasts the old with the new.

    Though some of the vines are over 100 years old and the winery has been around for nearly 50 years, the winemaking techniques are as current as they come. With the Crianza, vintner Pablo Martinez has made a heavenly, approachable but depthy wine that further underlines his solid reputation.

  36. Bodegas Luis Alegre Finca La Reñana 2015 vintage

    Luis Alegre Finca La Reñana 2015

    £18.50

    £18.50

    Sometimes you just can't muck about. The front page for this wine has simply to state that it is stunning. White Rioja used to be a big, occasionally confused, oaky beast of a wine. This barrel-fermented behemoth isn't shy either, but it's cleaner and more Burgundian in style.

    Plenty of fresh fruit - apple and pear, drizzled with citrus - floats on creamy oak and gorgeous vanilla custard, and the whole kaboodle lingers for even longer than it took to type that description.

    A gleaming example of a modern Spanish winery that has taken charge of every aspect of its winemaking.

  37. Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot Burgundy Red Wine

    Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot 2011

    £110.00

    £110.00

    The source of this great wine comes from within the unique, walled vineyard of Clos Vougeot. The Cistercian monks enclosed the entire area many moons ago (work completed 1336) with a dry stone wall. Hence if a wine comes from this Grand Cru than it's from a highly defined & very limited amount of grape vine.

    About 80 folks each have a plot within the walls too. All squabbling over who makes the best wine. Thus if you get your hands on a bottle of this one, you're in for a big treat.

    Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot's version is a rich red packed with dark currants and cinnamon spices. Followed by mushroom and warm, earthy notes on the finish. It can age for up to 20 years too. Incidentally, this beautiful vineyard also has a rose named after it.

    The Chateaux Clos De Vougeot Climbing rose - named after the intensely deep red robe of this remarkable Burgundian red wine.

  38. Mas Las Cabes Rosé 2016

    Mas Las Cabes Rosé 2016

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Planting, pruning, picking, perfecting. The winery was constantly manic! Surely, it couldn't do the wine any good if everyone was in such a jumble. Other than Bes. The winery's Pyrenean Mountain Dog. He was a pillar of calmness. It irked Jean. He was determined to prove it was possible to make a wine without getting stressed.

    Quietly, he went about making a bright, laid-back rose. He knew pressure was good, but only gentle pressure that crushes grapes just enough to bring out flavour, proffer a beautiful tinge. The result was perfect, chilled. And as he'd been 'As calm as Bes' when he made it, he jumbled the letters to make-up a name. But that's between you, Jean and Bes. No-one else has had the time to work the anagram out.

  39. Mas las Cabes Rouge 2014

    Mas las Cabes Rouge 2014

    £11.00

    £11.00

    A wine that Mother Earth herself would be happy to promote. Your conscience can enjoy bonus points, as every last drop is organic and hasn't given planet earth much grief at all.

    So why not go with the flow and fully embrace this wine by kicking off those shoes, letting your hair down and digging those toes deep into the cool earth. Ooh that feels good!

    Or, if that doesn't take your fancy, just crack open the wine and let its swarthy, peppery goodness invigorate your senses.

  40. 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.

  41. McManis Chardonnay

    McManis Chardonnay 2015

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Anyone hoping for a Scottish Chardonnay may have had their hopes fleetingly raised upon seeing the name on this bottle. No wineries up there yet, but give it a few years - we're living in a climate of climate change.

    This bottle is of course made in California and McManis is the family name of the vineyard from where this Chardonnay comes. This is the rich and full-bodied style of Chardonnay that true Chard-heads demand. McDougal?, McTavish?; - McManis - Chardonn-Aye!

  42. McManis Pinot Noir 2015

    McManis Pinot Noir 2015

    For the brilliant price tag - especially given its grape and country of origin - this wine is soft, gentle, smooth, curvaceous... Probably time to stop with that metaphor.

    Anyway we're talking hallmark Pinot Noir character here with coquettish red berry fruit and just a waft of soft vanilla. A wonderful wine to tuck into after a long week on a relaxing Friday night and a great example of Pinot Noir that's easier on the wallet without the associated risks of too much acid and not enough fruit.

    You only get one chance to make a first impression. And this ambitious Chenin knew she had to knock it out of the park if she wanted to be picked by the famous Miles Mossop. What grape wouldn't? She went all out! White peach, honeysuckle, brioche. A subtle little side-show of ground almonds. Not to mention gorgeous pineapples.

    But that up front hit isn't enough on its own. She also knew a little intrigue was important. Just the slightest racy edge of citrus tartness, to let everyone know she wasn't a pushover. And then, of course, a little something to leave her lingering in the mind.

    Perhaps When Chris Met Andrea doesn't have the same ring to it as When Harry Met Sally, but we think their story has all the charm. As young whippersnappers, they toured the world, working harvests in classic wine regions, until their eyes met over a vine (maybe that bit's poetic licence) and they fell in love.

    They returned to Chris' native South Africa where 'they learnt that their compatibility extended into the vineyards and cellar' and started making wines like this succulent, richly-scented blend of Rhône varieties, which is finely textured with a fresh, energizing finish that makes it the ideal match for pork belly. Yet another match made in wine heaven. Alright alright we'll stop with the cheese.

    You'll be hard pushed to find a wine that shows off its roots quite as well as Mullinieux White. It's a blend of three different grapes and the Chenin Blanc is from vines up to 80 years old; that's great but not too unusual. But, Chris and Andrea are so dedicated to showing off what Swartland has to offer that they've grown each grape variety in different soil types and only indigenous yeasts are used during fermentation. There's no questioning where this wine comes from. With so much dedication, it's no wonder they're known as one of the best wine producers in South Africa. The final product has a stony, slatey aroma with a zip of limey acidity and a rich, supple mouth-feel. Swartland tastes amazing.

    We get a similar feeling from sipping on this wine as we do from watching an episode of Inspector Montalbano.

    With sun-ripened, juicy flavours of cherries, raspberries and redcurrants, it conjures up images of hazy Italian days and, with its hint of leather and spice from its oak ageing, you feel you could almost be on the back of a Vespa with Montalbano. Happy days.

    However, unlike Montalbano, there isn't a hint of cheese (although it would probably work quite well with a good slab of Taleggio).

    Conjure the image, if you will, of a long, oak table in a conservatory in Venice. It's after dinner, the table is laden with bowls of plums, cherries and raspberries, and a steaming cafetiere of Kenyan coffee is giving off aromas that are teasing your nose. Vivaldi is playing in the background whilst beautiful children are playing in the garden outside. Are you there? Good, because this is pretty much what you get when you tuck into this Italian beauty. Bellissima!

    Some years ago, little could be seen of the Quinta de Aves vineyards. The vines were hidden under tumbling weeds. Abandoned by man, it was perfect for the rare night birds that inhabited the hills. The prolific vines produced more grapes than the birds could eat. So, as was their habit, they stowed them away for winter.

    And thus, one afternoon, a young winemaker was stopped in his tracks by an intoxicating scent of plum and figs. Savouring the alluring hint of vanilla, he followed his nose to an ancient old tree. The birds had stowed their crop in a hole in the trunk. But, facing the sun as the hole did, the fruit had started to ferment. Alberto couldn't resist. The liquid was out of this world. He just needed to bottle the stuff.
