  1. Clos Bellane 'Les Echalas' Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Rouge 2012

    Clos Bellane 'Les Echalas' Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Rouge 2014

    Now £17.43

    Was £20.50


    It's well known that many indigenous people of the Rhone, like most mountain folk, are short and squat. To be born tall and thin is a boon, here; and from an early age these 'beanpoles' are singled out for specialist work, picking the higher grapes from the tops of the vines.

    Taking it's name from the French for pole, or stake, 'Éschalas' honours these gangly individuals, without whom those sun-filled grapes right at the top of the vine would never have made it into this belting Rhone blend. Honest...

  2. Heumann Lagona Villany

    Heumann Lagona Villany 2013



    "Are we Heumann or are we dancers?" We always thought they were odd lyrics, those ideas aren't mutually exclusive! We don't know if the Killers have noticed but Strictly Come Dancing isn't just a dressier Crufts; that's a person doing the Viennese Waltz not a handsome young German Shepherd (although if a German Shepherd were to ballroom dance it'd probably Waltz). You can be both a dancer and a human.

    Just as you can be Heumann and an astonishing Hungary based winery. Want proof? Just try this wine, a classic Bordeaux blend with the addition of the local varietal Kekfrankos, the wine displays an elegant nose of sour cherries, dark forest berries, baking spices and tobacco that follows onto the palate backed by a great structure and well-integrated tannins. Now, just don't get us started on Mr. Brightside.

  3. Las Moradas 'Senda' 2013 Vegan Red Wine

    Las Moradas 'Senda' 2013

    Now £12.00

    Was £14.50


    For years, the foothills of the Sierra de Gredos mountains were riddled with bandits. One night, they kidnapped the baby daughter of the local judge who had promised to rid the region of their scourge. As well as taking the baby, they plundered his precious vines, stripping them of fruit. The judge should know his place. He was, of course, heartbroken.

    Trackers scoured the area, but the rough terrain and mountain scrub yielded no clues as to where the baby had been taken. Until years later. Wandering the hills ever hopeful, the judge noticed familiar vines growing along a barely defined track. They were unmistakably descended from pips the bandits must have scattered as they fled with his daughter. The path led right to her. This wine is made in celebration of their reunion, from those grapes that lined the way.

  4. Longview 'Red Bucket' Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Longview 'Red Bucket' Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2013



    ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015*

    Founded by brothers Peter and Mark Saturno, after they tired of city life in The Big Apple and decided to return home to their homeland of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills, Australia. Whilst we are happy that they were able to retreat from the frenetic pace of New York, we’re also very pleased that they started making wine in this idyllic spot.

    Macclesfield is a tad warmer than the rest of the cool climate region of Adelaide, and this means that the Saturno brothers are able to produce wines with great depth and intensity, as well as the finesse and poise, like this rich, raspberry and game-flavoured belter. A rather nice homecoming, we say.

  5. Longview 'Yakka' Shiraz 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Longview 'Yakka' Shiraz 2015



    ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    This wine takes its name not from the Aussie slang for hard work, although judging by its magnificently rich, sturdy and swarthy character, you’d wager they had put a lot of work into it. Nope, this wine takes its name from the striking Australian grass shrub, pictured on the label, which also reveals the producer’s love for their homeland and this, too, shines through in this terroir-driven wine, whose dense, ripe black cherry and white pepper flavours show off the warmth of the Macclesfield micro-climate.

  6. Lothian Vineyards 'Horny Owl' Shiraz South African Wine

    Lothian Vineyards 'Horny Owl' Shiraz 2014

    Now £9.00

    Was £9.50


    We are quite sure that there is a more profound meaning attached to this South African Shiraz, but we're just going to admit that we are finding it hard not to let our inner teenager snigger at the name.

    Pathetic and immature, yes, BUT, remember, this is Oddbins and we are allowed to be ridiculous. Mm kay? Just don't bring this wine to the first meeting with your super conservative in-laws to be, like someone did, ahem.

    Idiocy aside, the tantalizing aromas of dark brooding fruits and spice-laden goodness should leave you in a tip top mood. It might even put you in another kind of mood altogether...

  7. Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah 2013 Vegan Red Wine

    Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah 2013



    If you're a world-class winery, you will be in possession of a few things, including a gifted winemaker and a well-placed vineyard. Man O' War have both of these. Their winemaker, Duncan McTavish is basically a grape-whisperer and the vineyard where the Syrah vines grow might as well have an X marking the spot on the map. It has a well-angled slope, which means the vine can catch the sun for the longest amount of time, and a cooling sea breeze, which means the grapes don't get hot under the collar. All of which leads to a breath-taking wine, with smoky peat notes draped over the overt blueberry and pepper aromas. Concentrated yet well-balanced, with vibrant acidity and a streak of almost salty minerality, it would be perfect with wood-fired pigeon.

  8. Man O' War Ironclad 2010 Vegan Red Wine

    Man O' War Ironclad 2010



    With a name like Man O' War Ironclad, you'd be forgiven if you reached for the nearest potential weapon and ran to a strategic position whilst calling for back up. But we would advise against that. We would advise you to raise a white flag and surrender yourself to this sublime piece of artistry (see what we did there).

    A blend of Bordeaux grape varieties from no less than 45 different plots, which are all handled separately in the winery to maximise their individual potential before being blended, Ironclad has huge complexity of blue and black fruits, crushed stone, chalk and wild thyme.

    The palate is very concentrated with a supple texture and a streak of minerality on the finish. Needless to say, this powerful wine will strive from victory to victory for at least a decade.

  9. Miles Mossop Saskia

    Miles Mossop 'Saskia' 2013



    This is the quintessentially artisanal produced wine, following the philosophy of winemaker Miles Mossop, of hand crafted wines with as little interference as possible, showing a purity of expression.

    We wonder if he feels the same way about raising his children, who all his wines are named after! This ode to his daughter is full of honeysuckle, white peach, lime and toasted almonds with a fairly full palate and lengthy finish. I hope Kika and Max (the other two wines) have been raised as well as Saskia!

  10. Ormadei Assemblage 2015 Vegetarian Wine

    Ormadei Assemblage 2015



    If grapes were the Royal Family of Argentina, then no doubt the bold, brambly Malbec would be the hirsute, jolly King. But, much like the British Royals, this family has stars that are also very popular with the people (ahem, Harry and Kate), including Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec, which are more usually found in Bordeaux.

    Just like Old King Malbec, which also started off in Bordeaux, they are thriving in Argentina's Uco Valley. This example is an affordable twist on this Bordeaux blend, with a voluptuous texture, dark forest fruits and sweet baking spice.

  11. Perez Cruz Waiki Cabernet 2014 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Pérez Cruz Waiki Cabernet 2014



    This wine takes its name from a curious custom in the Maipo Andes, in which new brides must go to the river, catch a fish and whisper "Wakey Wakey", before letting it go about its day.

    But this doesn't tell you much about the wine, so we'll help out: it has ripe red fruits, black pepper and vanilla flavours, underpinned by fresh aromas of tarragon and laurel. We don't know about fish, but we do know about red wine. This is one that's guaranteed to wake up your taste buds.

  12. Penfolds Grange 2012

    Penfolds Grange 2012



    Penfolds Grange instantly expresses its exuberance from the moment that the dense and dark liquid hits the glass.

    Offering its drinker a multitude of sweet and savoury aromas, Grange first tempts the nose with black olives, liquorice and a hint of soy. These are quickly followed by wafts of tiramisu, mascarpone and zabaglione before notes of freshly roasted hazelnut and ground coffee beans are introduced.

    This fresh and refined tipple demonstrates big and bright flavours of red liquorice, gravy reduction and black olive tapenade to mention but a few! Irresistibly deep, Grange is abundant with red fruits and the weighty wine is encrusted with dusty, softened tannins.

    Penfolds argue that Grange is Australia's most celebrated wine. A bold claim, but for a beautifully bold wine. And we can see exactly what all the fuss is about.

  13. Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2013

    Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2013



    RWT: Rather Wonderful and Terrific.*

    A bright, deep red in colour, Penfolds RWT Shiraz is abundant with fruit and spice aromas. Initially, the nose is treated to boysenberry and mulberry, followed by Moroccan spices laced with malt and mustard seed. Then, hints of nuts and cedar oak intermingle with the scents of freshly glazed figs and brandy snaps.

    This fruitiness follows onto the palate where luscious cranberry and blueberry flavours are found. Stylish, balanced and persistent, the wine provides pronounced tannins that are accompanied with a flow of Barossa fruits.

    *RWT actually stands for Red Winemaking Trial but fortunately for us it made it past the trials and on to our tables back in 2000!

  14. Primitivo Borgo dei Trulli 2015

    Primitivo Borgo dei Trulli 2016



    This rich Italian red is a bit like walking into your most-loved cafe. Not a grease spoon one, nor a super trendy one - nothing wrong with them but that FAVOURITE place!

    Aromas of exotic spices, vanilla, coconut and dried fruits. (They serve a healthy breakfast here!). Followed by rich blackcurrant, chocolate cake and exotic spice flavours. With, of course, fresh coffee on the finish!

    This Cafe is licensed too - after all this health food I think a warming glass of Primitivo is in order! A large one, please.

  15. Prince Stirbey Negru de Dragasani

    Prince Stirbey Negru de Dragasani 2016



    This wine is made by the family-owned Prince Stirbey winery, whose predecessors (i.e. the Prince) used to make wine in a palace in Bucharest, from the 17th century onwards, that was served in restaurants including that on the Orient Express. Stirbey was appropriated by the communist party in 1949 and then returned to the family over 50 years later in 2001.

    That (wipes brow) is the first part of this wine's story. The second part is that a previous vintage of Negru de Dragasani was chosen from a blind line-up by Steve Saunders, the winner of The Palate 2014 as the wine that he wanted Oddbins to stock. This is what the affable Bristolian had to say about his (fantastic) choice:
    "One taste of this and you'll know Romanian wine is firmly back on the map. Full of rich blackberry and cherry fruit with fine tannins and a wonderfully smooth finish that goes on and on. Like reclining on a bed of silk pillows while angels dance on your tongue, this is a truly sumptuous drop."
    With the same dense cherry and berry flavours and velvety tannins, this vintage is just as great! Treat yourself to this bottle of luxury and be a Prince (or Princess) for a day whenever you like.

  16. Secret de Viu Manent Malbec 2015 Vegan Red Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Malbec 2015

    Now £10.00

    Was £11.50


    Border-hopping Malbec from the other side of the peninsula in Chile. This is very South American anyway. Small wonder Chile too are turning their hand to this, the Argie-wonder grape; not that they need to prove much when it comes to winemaking.

    This Secret (or locally, Secreto) is Malbec very much as you picture it: Full and juicy, smooth and satisfying, and with the guaranteed trademark long, long length. Wine this good won't be much of a Secret for long.

  17. Secret de Viu Manent Viognier 2015 Vegan White Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Viognier 2015



    With an already winning reputation for super-reliable reds, it's often forgotten just how good Chilean whites are now becoming. And Viognier is a good choice for the Chileanification treatment as, in a similar way to the reds, you get ripeness that is never at odds to overall balance. And in fact this is one of the more thoughtful, restrained Viogniers on the market. Viognier of this sort will make a very versatile night in standby and food all-rounder. This is full bodied with notable floral and mineral notes and a lovely mouth-watering finish.

  18. Vallegarcia 'Miriade' Viognier 2016 Spanish White Wine

    Vallegarcia 'Miriade' Viognier 2016



    Nothing could be more exhilarating than galloping along astride his beloved horse 'Miriade'. Or so Garcia thought. Until one day, cantering through the hillside scrub, a most extraordinary perfume enveloped him. Honeysuckle, blossom, exotic fruits... Only a princess could smell so alluring.

    In a trance, he followed the scent to a thicket of thorns and forced his way through. There, beyond the spiky wall, was a vineyard, dripping with grapes and lavish with scent. And then he heard a voice. A beautiful maiden, trapped since childhood. Rescued from the thorns by the astonishing fragrance. This wine celebrates their marriage, but beware. It's unlikely anyone will rescue you from its spell.

  19. Viña Leyda 'Canelo' Syrah 2014

    Viña Leyda 'Canelo' Syrah 2014



    ***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Like an alpine orchid, this is a rare beauty from a vertiginous landscape, whose high altitude home and seemingly adverse conditions are the very thing that make it so beautiful, as the plant strives to survive and thrive.

    Ee bah gum we’ve gone a bit Davey Attenborough haven’t we! What do we do? Oh yes, sell wine.

    Ahem, well: this one has the signature cool-climate Syrah traits of black pepper, violets and tart red raspberry and blueberry overtones. A serious mountaineer.

  20. Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas

    Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas 2014



    New horizons are a wondrous thing, and the Leyda Valley is exactly that. A new valley opened up by winemakers with a touch of the prospector about them, taking risks in the hope that they might strike liquid gold!

    Well, if you have a glass or three of this, you will probably agree with us that there's gold in them thar hills and Vina Leyda are bottling it for your drinking pleasure!

  21. Viña Leyda Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    Viña Leyda Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    Now £7.50

    Was £10.00


    The Humboldt Current. What can you say? It's a Pacific Ocean current that runs along the coast of Chile that, being an upwelling current, pushes cold, nutrient-rich water from the bottom of the ocean to the top, resulting in the current's ecosystem being the most productive of its kind in the world!

    It accounts for 20% of the world's fish catches and, if that's not enough, then it brings cold, wet wind to coastal wine regions like the Leyda Valley. The resulting cool climate brings a longer ripening season, so greater quality and complexity.

    Good news indeed for this juicy, red-fruit-driven Pinot Noir, which ends up with perfectly-balanced tannin and acidity that fill the mouth with radiant succulence. Well done, Humboldt Current!
