  1. 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!

  2. Ayres de Escal Priorat

    Ayres de Escal Priorat 2012

    Now £11.93

    Was £13.25

    £11.93

    Way back when in 1194, a group of very clever monks decided to plant some Vitis Vinifera vines on the vertiginously steep slopes of Priorat. This was a great idea because the loose, granite-like 'llicorella' soil there is chuffing marvellous for Garnacha and Carignan. Fast forward 800 years to the 1990s and, after a long fallow period, a group of spunky young winemakers had the equally good idea of resurrecting the region's wine industry. They're making seriously good wine again, like this well-structured, raspberry jam-flavoured beauty. The monks would be proud.

  3. Becalm Malbec 2016 Red Wine

    Becalm Malbec 2016

    £12.50

    £12.50

    With its deep oceans of blueberry and black cherry fruit and bright, grippy tannins, this exclusive Malbec seems to resemble the starry skies above Argentina's Andes. Indeed, the team at Fincas Patagonicas (who are advised by Jean Claude Berrouet, formerly of Chäteau Petrus) were inspired by the story of the ancient constellation Argo Navis.

    According to the legend, this was the ship Jason and the Argonauts sailed in to retrieve the Golden Fleece and, like the delicately oaked Becalm, the image of this great wooden ship, gliding silently on an endless voyage through the southern skies, transports your thoughts far away so a sense of calm envelops you... So relax. Be Malbec. Becalm.

  4. 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.

  5. Bodegas Roda 'Sela' Rioja Reserva 2013

    Bodegas Roda 'Sela' Rioja Reserva 2013

    £18.50

    £18.50

    Why are there dandelions on the label? A fine question! Apparently, during the spring in Rioja, children would pick dandelions, blow off the fluffy things and wish for a good vintage. When winemaker, Augustin Santolaya tasted Sela's bright, fruit flavours and lively palate, he knew the wish had come true. Hang on, blowing dandelions tells the time, it doesn't grant wishes, this story is an absolute fallacy. O well, children shouldn't be involved in the production of wine anyway, even if it is just wish based. It's not a fallacy that this wine is magnificent, however, subtle use of oak delivers a well-balanced and modern style of Rioja; all without the help of dandelions, impressive!

  6. Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine

    Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Now £37.80

    Was £42.00

    £37.80

    A red wine with distinctive cassis influence with a cedary spine covered with dark cherry, waxy crayon earthiness, graphite and enticing undertones. On the palate it is rich with blackcurrant and firm ripe tannins indicating that this wine has at least a decade of ageing potential.

  7. Boer and Brit Field Marshall 2014 Red Wine South African

    Boer & Brit Field Marshall 2014

    Now £11.25

    Was £12.50

    £11.25

    A Mediterranean styled blended red wine, made up of alternative varietals produced in South Africa. Rich with flavours of pomegranate, cloves, pepper, ripe plums and masses of piquant spice before moving through to a lean, savoury finish.

  8. Cotes Du Rhone 'Blason' Esterzagues French Red Wine

    Côtes Du Rhône 'Blason' Esterzagues 2015 *WEB EXCLUSIVE*

    £9.75

    £9.75

    No matter how rugged someone thinks they are- everyone wants to hide under a favourite blanket at some point. This Côtes du Rhône is the red wine equivalent. Juicy red berry fruits knit together with tummy warming spices. Woven from Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre this red wine duvet is completely unfiltered, giving it an extra silky texture. A perfect tipple with friends or when you're feeling 'Rhônely'...ahem.

  9. Celler San Rafel 'Joana' Montsant 2016 Spanish Red Wine

    Cellers Sant Rafel 'Joana' Montsant 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Being a winemaker is a lonely business. Tending vines, maintaining equipment, managing the cellar. With little time for socialising, finding a partner can be complicated. At least, that's how one particular winemaker justified his preference for using personals ads. But often the partner ended up being complicated too. He wished people could be straightforward and approachable, like wine, but nevertheless, he persevered.

    He had almost given up looking for someone, when late one evening - after a rather heavy tasting session - he managed to mix his notes up. He sent his tasting notes to the local personals column, and his 'Seeking' advert to the wine label printers. "Frank, tasty, cheeky, well balanced, delicate and very pleasant", Joana was the perfect match. It's best left unsaid what got printed on the label...

  10. Château Cesseras 'Cuvée Olric' Minervois 2014

    Château Cesseras 'Cuvée Olric' Minervois 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Minervois is a region that has been making wine as far back as the Romans and beyond. In fact, the name derives from the region's city, Minerve, which in turn takes its name from the Roman goddess Minerva. Minerva was the god of wisdom, poetry, arts and magic. As art and wisdom are synonymous with great wine, we (Oddbins Historical Research Department) believe Minervois was in high cahoots with her work colleague Dionysus. He was in charge of the God's celestial wine store. Although not documented we are certain they are responsible for ensuring the almost limitless production of robust spicy reds that has flowed out from this land ever since its Minervoisation. This red wine is from Minervois la Liviniere, a place the benevolent duo made sure always made the best wines in the area. Rich black cherry, black plums smothered in herbs and spices. So when you are fortunate enough to have a glass of this red- raise your chalice to the ancient wisdom of a Roman Goddess and her vinous partner in crime!

  11. Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010

    Château Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010

    £130.00

    £130.00

    Baron Phillippe De Rothschild is not just a name on a fancy Bordeaux bottle. Along with his global success as a wine producer, he was also a Grand Prix racing car driver, writer, art patron, film producer, sailor, and poet. But what the world really remembers is his wine making innovations and his relentless pursuit of excellence. Realising Chateau Clerc Milon's quality and enormous potential he purchased this vineyard in 1970. Thus today we are treated to one of his legacies - Clerc Milon's stunning red wine. The 2010 is a full-bodied and forthright wine. Ripe red fruits, orange and chocolate notes. Framed in velvety tannins and a long finish. Rothschild was a man of many talents, but one of his best was his recognition of talent. Such as this outstanding Chateau.

  12. Château Simard St Emilion Grand Cru 2009

    Château Simard St Emilion Grand Cru 2009

    Now £20.00

    Was £25.00

    £20.00

    From the sunny southern slopes of St. Emilion Grand Cru, how appetisingly alliterative. Grown in a coveted part of Bordeaux, it may feel like that would be reason enough to buy a St. Emilion Grand Cru for less than a month's rent. Well, this astonishing wine also has the advantage of being from 2009; the King of 21st Century Bordeaux vintages. Perhaps that's premature given it's only 2017, nonetheless this is a truly fantastic right-bank Bordeaux with outstanding concentration, giving succulent flavours of ripe red plum, blackberry, cigar box and prune. One at a time please.

  13. Chateau Teyssier Montagne Saint-Emilion Red Wine France

    Château Teyssier Montagne Saint-Emilion 2008

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Have you seen the film Searching for Sugarman? If not, then we recommend you do; it's a masterpiece, but it means this tasting note won't make much sense. If you have seen it, then Château Teyssier from Montagne-Saint-Émilion is the Rodriguez of wine: sweetly melodious and timelessly classic with a compelling history and an enthralling finish. Like Rodriguez, who managed to pass most of the world by despite his brilliant, Montagne Saint-Emilion is somewhat overshadowed by its more famous neighbour, Saint-Emilion, but we think it's about time for its big-screen debut.

  14. Château Teyssier Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2013

    Château Teyssier Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2013

    Now £23.20

    Was £29.00

    £23.20

    Jonathan Maltus is the established maverick of Bordeaux - the novice Englishman who turned up at Château Teyssier in the 1990s, introduced new techniques, bought up new land and started producing stonking wine, the 'garagiste' way. This term refers to those making the bigger, bolder styles of Claret that emerged in that period, embraced by critics like Robert Parker. This Grand Cru is true to that style and is showing fine damson, plum, meaty and earthy flavours that should develop well with a few more years.

  15. Cillar de Silos Crianza Spanish Red Wine

    Cillar de Silos Crianza 2014

    £18.25

    £18.25

    It's wines like this elegant, intense, blackberry-infused Ribero del Duero, that make selling wine such an absolute pleasure. Because after the bottle is despatched and we have parted company, you, dear customer, can revel in its joys at your leisure, whilst we sit back, have a cup of tea and think happily, "our work here is done now".

    How are we so sure? Because we've yet to pour this red out and witness anything but pure pleasure. Such is its rich, intense decadent appeal. With beautiful notes of top quality oak and deep dark fruit this is a brooding beauty.

  16. Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir 2014 Marlborough Red Wine

    Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir 2014

    £29.00

    £29.00

    For a long time the world looked at those crazy Kiwis and thought "boy, these guys are charismatic but what do they actually do down there? Other than angry dances before rugby, the kiwi bird but not the fruit and Russel Crowe movies, what makes them tick?" No one asks that anymore, not since 1985 when David Hohnen started growing vines in Marlborough. We know what New Zealand is about now, it's making maddeningly delicious wine. Cloudy Bay lead the way to define New Zealand by refreshing Sauvignons and lip smacking Pinot Noir, like this one! Let's not pigeon hole them though, they still do loads of other great stuff, it's just now when you're hiding behind the sofa as the All Blacks Haka their way across your TV set, you can do it while enjoying a lovely glass of Marlborough Pinot Noir, Sweet as Bro!

  17. Domaine Schistes Cuvée Tradition 2011

    Domaine Schistes Cuvée Tradition 2011 *WEB EXCLUSIVE*

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Addressing ourselves to the obscure Lledoner Pelut grape that makes up most of this wine* In the words of David Bowie, 'Little wonder / You little wonder, you'. Seriously though, where have you been all our lives? Everybody knows and loves your cousin, Grenache, but why you've had your light under a bushel for so long, we don't know. With your soft, downy skin, petite body and capacity to make darkly spicy, juicy belters like this, we want more of you in our lives.

  18. Domaines Ott Chateau Romasson Bandol Rosé 2016 Provence Rose

    Domaines Ott Château Romasson Bandol Rosé 2016

    £35.00

    £35.00

    There's a saying in AOC Bandol; "you're either Ott or you're not!" Well, it could be a saying, they may be French speakers down there and that could actually be a quote from mediocre action movie 'SWAT' but the message of the quote holds up. Domaine Ott is in many respects the barometer by which all Provence rosé is judged. They've been making outstanding wines, decades before the Brangelinas of the world started to saignée about the South of France.

    Pale, with a smooth, full mouth-feel, expressing bright notes of pink grapefruit, raspberries and white orchard flowers; after trying this wine you may also find yourself announcing at summer soirees; "it's either Ott or it's not!"

  19. First Creek Hunter Valley Shiraz Red Wine

    First Creek Hunter Valley Shiraz 2014

    Now £12.38

    Was £16.50

    £12.38

    "Own label wine brands." Words which, rightly or wrongly, send a shiver down many a spine. A phrase which sounds like a four-word Gothic novel, but really it depends on whose own label it is. Mickey Tipton's Fowl Emporium may arouse suspicion, for instance, as might King-size Tony's Sweetbread Parlour.

    But in Hunter Valley, New South Wales, the First Creek Winery was making wine under contract for local growers. And they were so good at it that in 2008 they started a range of their own, including this gorgeously satisfying, concentrated, medium-bodied Shiraz, and within a very short time it was winning all manner of awards.

    Mickey Tipton's Château Gazunder, alas, couldn't get a Food Hygiene Certificate.

  20. Gaja Dagromis Barolo Red Wine

    Gaja Dagromis Barolo 2013

    £58.00

    £58.00

    Nick Cave to Kylie Minogue: "Do you know where the wild roses grow, so sweet, scarlet and free?" Well, Angelo Gaja the winemaker seems to have the answer. Just open this bottle, pour a glass and let it breathe for a while.

    Then just enjoy the nose of mixed aromatic herbs & spices underlining the delicate notes of rose, leading to aromas of anise and wild fennel. Drink it with roast beef and it will offer some very generous flavours of berries and a savoury feeling too.

    This is one of the most popular wines from the Piedmont region, don't miss it!

  21. Gewurztraminer Hunawihr French White Wine

    Gewurztraminer Hunawihr 2016

    £13.75

    £13.75

    You may have heard of tea picked by monkeys and coffee defecated by civets. Those are nothing, this is an exotically spiced Gewurztraminer with big fat Turkish Delight and lychee flavours, that's made by Alsatians.

    It's very rare because when it comes to winemaking, Alsatians are easily distracted by other things like licking their fur, catching their tails, chasing postmen and watching The Littlest Hobo. So grab it quick, it can't stay for long, just turn around and it's gone again.

  22. Hacienda del Carmen Arlanza 2015 Red Wine Spain

    Hacienda del Carmen Arlanza 2015

    Now £11.90

    Was £14.00

    £11.90

    A Bright cherry red tempranillo with violet tones. Perfumed with black berries and violets leaving an elegant lingering on the palate rich with black cherries and silky tannins.

  23. Colombo Cotes du Rhone Villages Le Bonne Roche

    Jean-Luc Colombo Côtes du Rhône Villages Le Bonne Roch 2013

    £11.75

    £11.75

    When winemakers make wine, they are painting. They may not wear stripy tops and live bohemian lifestyles, but are artists nonetheless and they take their inspiration and their materials from the land around them.

    In this instance, the materials are the gentle slopes of the southern Rhône, plentiful sun, which provide enough warmth for the grapes to reach ripeness. They then have the after-effects of the Mistral wind, which tears through the northern Rhône and arrives downstream, offering grapes a gentle respite from the Mediterranean sun.

    In the hands of the artists at Jean-Luc Colombo, they turn this palate into a bold, firmly-structured, fine-grained, beauty of a painting.

  24. Jim Barry Mcrae Wood Shiraz 10

    Jim Barry Mcrae Wood Shiraz 2012

    Now £30.60

    Was £34.00

    £30.60

    An opaque wine made from the popular Shiraz varietal of Australia. Rich with aromas of fresh red fruits, plums and a hint of liquorice on the nose before a well structured palate of red and black berries, topped with a touch of oak. Concentrated yet balanced.

  25. Ken Forrester Petit Pinotage 2015 Red Wine

    Ken Forrester Petit Pinotage 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    A lion's roar. A hippo's grunt. An elephant's trumpet. So much for a relaxing, tranquil drink on the verandah. Ken was tired of the racket. The thing is, nature in South Africa's so BIG. And big things make big noises. (Think jumbo jet. Or dumper truck.)

    Ken, then, decided he'd make a quiet little red that didn't stamp and shout. A wine that didn't blare it's flavours at you, but muttered gently. Mulberries. Plum pudding. Smoky bacon. Whispering on the tongue. So much more persuasive. It's the quiet ones you should watch out for, as Ken knows.

  26. Ken Forrester Roussanne 2015 South African White Wine

    Ken Forrester Roussanne 2015

    £17.75

    £17.75

    Just because you've got the body, don't try to find your worth in the red wine district. A white like you. You have class. You're elegant. Your soft gentle structure will hold its own for years to come. So don't sell yourself short. You're gorgeous. Sensuous. Just be yourself. Find the right partner.

    Actually, "I loved you since I knew ya. I wouldn't talk down to ya. I have to tell you just how I feel." I can't get you off my mind. Just like a catchy song. Oh..."Roussanne, you don't have to take on the red wines. Roussanne, you don't have to take on the red wines..."

  27. Kuru Kuru Pinot Noir

    Kuru Kuru Pinot Noir 2015

    £22.00

    £22.00

    Some wines are good. Some take good to another level. This is one of the latter. It is so good that if you spilt it on a white carpet, it would probably splash into a beautiful pattern that you would want to keep forever.

    In fact it would probably help old ladies across roads if it could. Clean fruit flavours and an epic depth. Please give this wine your undivided attention and all of your culinary skills, because it deserves it.

  28. La Folle Noir D'Ambat Red Wine France

    La Folle Noire d'Ambat 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Remember the Tim Burton films? From Beetle Juice (clearly the best) to Willy Wonka and Corpse Bride, Mr Burton is the Master of Darkness and we think he'd approve of our next wine. It looks like it could be a prop off of one of his sets, with the creepy black and white face looking like Beetle Juice himself.

    Childhood traumas aside, this little number might just attach a more pleasant connotation to the twisted world of Tim Burton. Boasting a tantalizing perfume of dark dusky cherry, it is laced with violet and smoky nuances, yum!

  29. Lat 42 Rioja Reserva Spanish Red Wine

    Lat 42 Rioja Reserva 2012

    £14.00

    £14.00

    If you ran around the circle of latitude 42 degrees north of the equator you'd visit some pretty unusual places: Corsica, Albania, Macedonia, Georgia, most of the "stans", Inner Mongolia, North Korea, the Japanese island of Hokkaido, the Oregon/California and New York/Pennsylvania borders, and loads more. But to be honest we wouldn't get much further than Torre de Oña's winery in la Rioja Alta. Their classic, elegant Rioja, with its berry aromas and creamy oak, is the kind of wine that is so good it makes you entirely forget what you were doing...

  30. Le Clos du Serres 2014 (Red Wine)

    Le Clos du Serres 2014

    Now £11.48

    Was £13.50

    £11.48

    Organic, velvety, rich, fruity and spicy, if it was a song, it would be a winsome Fleetwood Mac number. If it was a person it would be England's favourite Lefty, Tony Benn. If it was a household item it would be an intricately-designed Persian rug. If it was an item in a museum it would be the Bayeux Tapestry. Oh dear, maybe we're getting a bit tired. Point is, this is a powerful, evocative, hedonistic wine that you should all try. Every last one of you.

  31. Le Hameau des Ollieux Corbières Boutenac 2015

    Le Hameau des Ollieux Corbières Boutenac 2015

    £17.50

    £17.50

    When is an organic grape not an organic grape? When its bona fides haven't been certified by the appropriate agricultural body! Hmmm, needs a bit of work but, like many wineries, Château Ollieux Romanis follows organic viticulture methods yet leaves its options open should a vintage go awry.

    Wine quality is the overriding priority, and the smallest possible quantities of non-organic compounds will be used to rescue a crop if it's entirely necessary. Trust us, it hurts them even more than it hurts you, and it's a tiny sacrifice for this heady blend of liquorice, spice, blackcurrant and mocha.

  32. Libre Cours Rouge Red Wine France

    Libre Cours Rouge 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    "I think I'll be somebody else, or else a madman, it's no time to be 21" raged an ancient punk rocker on a record from 1977. He wouldn't have been so upset if he'd just developed a fascination for wine, like Samuel Delafont did when he was that age. Then he could have founded his own wine export agency, and established a winery to produce some of the finest wines of the Languedoc, instead of splitting his band up and becoming a folk singer. And people would have said "mmm, delicious Pinot Noir/Grenache blend, juicy and flavoursome with a lovely long finish" instead of "21 my eye, mate you must be pushing 60!"

  33. Lismore 'The Age of Grace' Viognier 2016

    Lismore 'The Age of Grace' Viognier 2016

    £20.00

    £20.00

    This wine is Oddbins contribution to Joseph Campbell's Monomyth theory. The idea that across the world, all great stories are being retold in every language and in every culture. On a recent trip to South Africa our buyers, lost and thirsty, found a mystic on the side of the road. She told them what they seek can be found at the foothills of a magnificent mountain range. After days of searching, they stumbled upon a 600-acre vineyard. Weary, they asked for a glass of wine and after tasting one of the finest Viogniers ever to touch their lips, they realised they had been rejuvenated. They had found the fountain of youth! Not really, but they did stumble on this wonderfully balanced Viognier, maybe myths are real!

  34. Luis Alegre Rioja Alavesa Magnum Red Wine

    Luis Alegre Crianza 2013 - Rioja Alavesa - Magnum

    £28.00

    £28.00

    Here at Oddbins, we know when we're on to a good thing. We like this wine, we can see that you like it too, so what did we do? We got a bigger one in.

    Yes, that's right, the heavenly, depthy, aniseed-y Luis Alegre's Crianza now comes in a ma-hoosive magnum bottle. It's like Honey I Blew Up the Kid but much, much better.

  35. Luis Alegre Koden Rioja Alavesa Red Wine

    Luis Alegre Koden Rioja Alavesa 2015

    £10.75

    £10.75

    Koden is an Aztec word meaning "the time in a woman's life when she's at her most splendid" which, we think, is an excellent name for a wine.

    And, with fragrant, red fruit and a velvety, luscious palate, this wine really does have those qualities that you'd associate with feminine beauty and fertility.

    Ahem, sorry, this all sound a bit odd now we're reading it back, but you'll see what we mean if you try it.

  36. Manz Platónico 2015

    Manz Platónico 2015

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Hand-picked from a blind tasting line-up by the winner of The Palate 2013, Chloe Dickson (pictured), this wine has ringing endorsements from every corner:

    Chloe herself says “It’s perfect for the wintry festive period, when you need something rich, hearty, jammy and souly. When I drank it I could just imagine sitting next to a crackling fire, slippers on, snow falling outside and a roast in the oven. This wine has it all, it works brilliantly. It just works” What more can we say - we concur!

  37. Marvelous Blue 2015 Red Wine

    Marvelous Blue 2015

    Now £8.78

    Was £9.75

    £8.78

    A saxophone in a lonely back street. An early morning trumpet fanfare. A piano tinkling in a shadowy bar. There's something pure in those sounds. Unapologetic. But music is about connection. Bringing things together. While they might be able to hold their own, there's always the sense an instrument playing alone is calling out for friends.

    And so! Grapes. Brilliant stand alone performers, unashamed. But now and again, don't you feel, they just want to join the band? If it wasn't what they wanted, it's unlikely this reunion of classic Bordeaux varieties would hit such high notes. Blueberry, cassis, tobacco, cedar. Ah one, two, ah one two three four...

  38. Marvelous Red 2015 Red Wine

    Marvelous Red 2015

    Now £8.78

    Was £9.75

    £8.78

    Good jazz is all about balance. Blending. Just the right amount of this, just the right amount of that. It's also about taking a little creative risk now and then. Of course, that could mean things go wrong. But when things go right, wow! That just gets your feet tapping.

    Take this ensemble of Mediterranean varieties. Good soloists, all. But brought together under the baton of an inspired winemaker, well. You better get your dancing shoes. And, of course, creativity is nothing without structure. So, let the old bush vine Cinsault handle that, while the other players go to town. Cherry, rose petals and chalk. Music to the tongue!

  39. Merino Chardonnay White Wine

    Merino Movi Limari Chardonnay 2014

    Now £10.80

    Was £12.00

    £10.80

    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!

  40. Merino Syrah

    Merino Movi Limari Syrah 2014

    Now £10.80

    Was £12.00

    £10.80

    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!

  41. Miles Mossup 'Max'

    Miles Mossop 'Max' Bordeaux Blend 2014

    You know how Bordeaux is a bit tweed jacket, red trousers, brogues and hunting? Maybe that's a little unfair, but it's certainly on the stuffier side. Well what would happen if you moved it to South Africa, gave it a dose of proper sunshine, maybe taught it to surf and then changed its name to something edgy like Max? That would be pretty cool wouldn't it? Well that's exactly what Miles Mossop, the winemaker from Tokara, has done. This is a stunning wine, with flavours of dark cherries, charcuterie and Christmas cake, and great value. Such great value, in fact, we think they may have relaxed a little too much.

  42. Ormadei Malbec 2016

    Ormadei Malbec 2016

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Bang! In your face! Let's not pussyfoot around, people like Argentine Malbec for its raw, heavyweight, power; and that's what Ormadei delivers by the sackfull, but that's not all. Big hitting, yes, but rich, fruity and smooth with it. Like getting punched in the mouth by a black cherry fist in a velvet glove. In a good way.

  43. 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!

  44. Pérez Cruz Carménère 2014 Chilean Wine

    Pérez Cruz Carménère 2015

    £16.50

    £16.50

    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.

  45. Portal da Águia DOC 2014

    Portal da Águia DOC 2014

    £9.00

    £9.00

    The Portal da Águia winery's name translates to "Eagle's Gate". Although these mighty birds of prey deserve the accolades for their work in the vineyards (they are good at crushing grapes with their talons, quickly spot problems amongst the vines and keep the vineyards free of pests), we should not forget that this is a team effort. So as you sip this gorgeous Portuguese red, spare a thought for the wise owls in accounting, the flamboyant parakeets in marketing and the pelicans in logistics. The poor birds do really struggle with those corks though.

  46. Potel-Aviron Mâcon Villages VV 2015

    Potel-Aviron Mâcon Villages VV 2015

    £13.75

    £13.75

    Macon Villages wine displays richness and depth that is signature to the wineries traditional methods. Weeks of fermentation give the wine its richness in flavours of fresh cut hay, white flower and pear fruits with notes of citrus acidity shining through. Perfect to be enjoyed now and across the next three years.

  47. Quinta de la Rosa 'Dourosa Tinto' 2013

    Quinta de la Rosa 'Dourosa Tinto' 2015

    £13.75

    £13.75

    It was an ordinary enough Sunday service in Oporto, with the usual stuff - christenings, BMWs in the car park, expensive gifts for the little treasures' 18th - vintage Champagne for Anna, tattoo removal cream for sweet little Damien and... hello, what have we got here... a whole vineyard for baby Claire Feuerheerd! Well, hang on to that one, love, even if the family flogs everything else.

    Because one day Portugal will join the EU. Then your son can start making table wine on your land, and your granddaughter can run the winery for him. And in turn, she'll explore the potential of the Douro region while making beautifully balanced, cherry, cedar and cassis-driven lovelies like this. Beats premium bonds don't it!

  48. Robert Oatley Vineyards 'Signature Series' Pinot Noir

    Robert Oatley Vineyards Signature Series Pinot Noir 2015

    £13.50

    £13.50

    History is scattered with memorable "Larrys": there's Lawrence of Arabia, DH Lawrence, Laurence Olivier, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and then there's Larry Cherubino, chief winemaker at Robert Oatley Vineyards. His ability to coax out the most fresh, delicate, wild strawberry and cocoa-y elements of the tricky Pinot Noir grape is enough to cement his place in the Larry Hall of Fame. We salute you, Larry!
