  1. Williams and Humbert Alegria Manzanilla NV

    Williams and Humbert Alegria Manzanilla Sherry NV

    £5.50

    £5.50

    ***2013 IWC Gold, 2013 IWC Trophy, 2013 IWSC Silver, 2013 Decanter Bronze***
    Paola Medina Sheldon. The name might not sit at the front of your mind, although we're not sure if she's ever surfaced from her studies long enough to introduce herself.

    She's the Head Winemaker at Williams and Humbert, a post she took up after obtaining separate degrees in Chemistry and Oenology, and Masters' degrees in Viticulture, Oenology and Legislation. Blimey, our Woodwork 'O' Level certificate can come off the wall now!

    We think she's just about qualified to make this elegant, nutty and salt-tinged Manzanilla. And she'd more than likely be able to take you to the cleaners if you disagreed.
  2. Garden Route Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    The Garden Route Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    £5.75

    £5.75

    South Africa's 300 mile long Garden Route might have the second mildest climate in the World, but the flavours in this wine are a million miles from mild. Rich, ripe, blackberries and spice. But that's too simple! Such descriptions fail. The flavours here are as diverse as the Fynbos. The natural shrubland lining the wayside of the route.

    Star-apple. Sweet thorn. Rub-rub berry. Glossy current. Redhot poker. Pondblossom. Karoo num-num. Sugarbush. I've no idea what those things taste like, but they certainly sound like better things to describe the garden-full of flavours in this glass.
  3. Garden Route Chardanny Chenin Blanc 2016

    The Garden Route Chardonnay Chenin Blanc 2016

    £5.75

    £5.75

    Sometimes, there are so many nuances in a glass of wine words fail to describe it. Yes, you could reach for the usual characteristics. 'Dry, refreshing, mouth-watering.' The usual 'apples, tropical fruits and pears.' But, frankly, that's lazy. Sometimes, a wine has you beat.

    Like this one! On first tasting there was awkward silence, broken only by thoughtful 'hmmms' and frustrated sniffs. Until, finally, a voice piped up: "It's fine boss!" Now, he meant 'fine boss.' But the boss heard 'Fynbos', the beautiful heathland associated with South Africa's famous Garden Route. Few places on Earth have such diversity! (Any glass with this wine in it being one). And so, the name was set.
  4. Sierra Creek White Wine NV USA

    Sierra Creek White NV

    Now £6.08

    Was £6.75

    £6.08

    It's a happy little chappy is this wine. Like a gregarious mate, you can take it anywhere and it's guaranteed to quickly raise a smile with its easy charm and its bright, sunny character, full of the blissful Californian sun.
    Its ripe yellow plum and cantaloupe melon flavours would buddy up easily with a spicy vegetable stir-fry, ideally with a bunch of old friends, a comfy sofa and a Shirley Valentine DVD.
  5. Sierra Creek Red NV American Wine

    Sierra Creek Red NV

    Now £6.08

    Was £6.75

    £6.08

    Sometimes you just want to turn the radio on and let somebody else make your mind up for you. You've made mind-bending decisions all day, you don't want to come home and choose between Stockhausen and Ornette Coleman. Just press a button and dig what comes out, you'll like it more than you expected.
    Like this wine, it's smooth, fruity and friendly, and it doesn't want you to beat yourself up looking for a greater profundity. There you go, 'don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy...' Perfect. You didn't even know the Eagles were so good. Everything is splendid.
  6. Barbadillo Manzanilla Solear Sherry NV

    Barbadillo Manzanilla Solear Sherry NV

    £6.25

    £6.25

    We have some riddles for you.

    "Voiceless it cries, wingless flutters; toothless it bites, mouthless mutters." What is it? The wind.

    "It's salty but pleasant, dry but refreshing, small but mighty." What is it? Solear Manzanilla by Antonio Barbadillo of course!

    Yes, don't be fooled by its size, there is a whole lotta dry, nutty, sea-salty goodness in this wee bottle. One to watch Almovodar films and pick at olives with.
  7. Paseo White 2015 White Wine Lisboa Portugal

    Paseo White 2015

    £6.25

    £6.25

    Paseo White Wine, we would be so bold as to venture, lies midway between the flavour profile of Vinho Verde and Albarino and we think it has the best of both, as a bread manufacturer once said.
    It has the fresh, breezy, lemony charm of Vinho Verde in northern Portugal and elements of the tangy, tropical flavours of Albariño, from over the border and up the Spanish coast in Rías Baixas. However, this wine has a lower price than the average rate for Vinho Verde and Albariño - it's win win, basically.
  8. Paseo Red Portugal Red Wine

    Paseo Red 2015

    £6.25

    £6.25

    Like the bit in Beetlejuice when the eponymous, messed-up protagonist puts a spell on his visitors, making them sing Day O (The Banana Boat Song) against their will, whatever you're doing, Paseo Red Wine is sure to fill you with Harry Belafonte-esque feelings of elation. Partly because of the marvellous price, but mostly because of the vibrant, sweet cherry and cedar wood-flavoured, critically acclaimed wine itself. Altogether now, "Day O! Me say day, me say day, me say day."
  9. 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..."
  10. Aguila Syrah Spanish Red Wine 2012

    Aguila Red 2012

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Historically, Spain wasn't always the go-to country for affordable, fresh, good value wines, being hitherto known, on the whole, for more oaky styles but, for the past few years, it's made everyday wines something of an art form.
    Grown at high altitude in the DO of Cariñena, the Syrah grapes give rise to a clean, vibrant wine with intense aromas of dark cherry, violets and freshly-made jam.
    In vinous terms, Spain has traded sandals for Nike Airs; swapped Neil Diamond for Lily Allen; dispatched the Coronation Chicken in favour of beetroot foam; call it what you like, it changed, and we like it.
  11. Chateau Jalousie 2015

    Château Jalousie 2015 - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Château Jalousie have just gone straight to the to the top of our popularity list for lightening up our day with the following food matching advice for their delightful half wine bottle of Claret: "Something juicy and relatively dead would be best." It's good to see there are some funny glands that are alive and kicking in Bordeaux. Just sayin'.
  12. Los Tortolitos Merlot 2016 Chilean Red Wine

    Los Tortolitos Merlot 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Remember in the 90s when people would talk about Chilean Merlot, "Chilean Merlot it's so expressive, it's like nothing I've ever drunk before!" Then some clever clogs did some gene splicing or... carbon dating or... vino ultrasound? Don't get bogged down in the science, they found out what a lot of people thought was Merlot was actually, Carmenere. Great, hooray for Carmenere, but what about poor old Merlot. It's still got so much to give! We can't sit by while Merlot, in the prime of life, is shipped off to a Chilean nursing home. Thankfully, Vinedos Puertas have put good old Merlot back to work in Chile and I promise you, this time it's not actually Carmenere in a Halloween costume... probably.
  13. Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    For the Spanish aficionados amongst you, you may be aware Los Tortolitos translates as "the Lovebirds." This name derives from Chilean harvesters observing a lone jay looking terriably blue. Depressed by his hermit existence but accepting of his lot, he turned to the age old monkish practice of assisting in the production of wine. He would pick single grapes and drop them into the harvester's baskets. One day, in a moment of decadence, he ate a grape and was so overcome with the refreshing taste of the Sauvignon Blanc grape he was inspired to invent Tindr. He swiped right on a charming young parakeet from the central valley and the rest is history. Now Tinder and Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc are helping lovebirds everywhere.
  14. Fontein Ridge Chenin Blanc 2016 - South African White Wine

    Fontein Ridge Chenin Blanc 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    There are many fountains across the world that are famed for their superb structures and magnificent displays. This is one such fountain, or 'fontein'.

    It wows the crowds with a fount of fruity flavours with ripe apricot, peach, pear and citrus streaming through the palate right through to the end of the show. It'll have you on your feet applauding before you realise you're stood in your living room and not at the Font de Canaletes.
  15. Fontein Ridge Pinotage Shiraz 2015 - South African White Wine

    Fontein Ridge Pinotage Shiraz 2015

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Modern winemakers often talk about having innovative ideas and that's because they know how important it is to bring new and fresh wines to you!

    Take this South African Pinotage and Shiraz blend for example. They call it 'Fontein Ridge' because it contains fountains of juicy tannins and ripe fruit flavours with hints of vanilla and chocolate on the nose. It's almost unbelievable how they get so much into such a small bottle!

    Though, if they wanted to take it one step further we wouldn't complain if they build an actual fountain of wine. Now THAT's what we'd call innovation...
  16. 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.
  17. Denatile Grillo Chardonnay

    Denatile Grillo Chardonnay 2015

    £6.75

    £6.75

    Grillo - is that an Australian BBQ brand?! Actually, it's a native white variety to Sicily. In the past it's been mainly used for making Marsala, the famous Sicilian fortified wine. Now it's got a brave new incarnation as a dry white wine, blended with the perfect partner, Chardonnay. The Grillo gives ripe fruit and depth. The Chardonnay contributes crisp acidity and zest. Excellent value white from a new generation of Sicilian wines.
  18. Pora Py'a de Chile Merlot

    Porã Py'a de Chile Merlot 2015

    Now £6.98

    Was £7.75

    £6.98

    If it were a lonely hearts ad, we think Porã Py'a's Merlot would read something like this: I'm a young charmer with a big heart. My looks are dark and Latino, but my appeal is more than skin-deep... Give me a try and I'll woo you with generosity, a plush feel and a darkly fruity GSOH. My ideal partner would be a gregarious, fun-seeking individual who enjoys partying at the weekend (I love a party), as well as a homely mid-week dinner (we Argentines love our food).
  19. Gonzalez Byass Elegante Fino Dry Sherry

    Gonzalez Byass Elegante Fino Dry Sherry

    £6.99

    £6.99

    For a desperately long time Sherry has been the kid sitting alone in the canteen, pairing his corn beef sarnies with a good root up his nose, radiating a forcefield of uncool. Thanks Nan, you ruined Sherry for the rest of us! Or did she? Over the summer that kid has grown 12 inches, had his braces off and his voice has got deep and sexy. Go on son! Sherry's back, rolling out of cocktail and tapas bars alike; be sure that the cool kids are sipping on a chilled Fino... as well as your awesome Nanna. Good lord, drinking fortified wine's a rollercoaster.
  20. Carta Vieja Merlot Red Wine Chile

    Carta Vieja Merlot 2016

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Another major minor-miracle in the Oddbins wine range and a regular member of our bestsellers list, this is a red that keeps the customer in search of good valued wine very satisfied indeed. Minor, because of its diminutive price tag but very major when it comes to what you get for your money.
    This Chilean red's distinction is its refinement and understatement. A kind of light, softness with a freshness and vitality that easily puts it next to baby Clarets for class, balance and great food-friendliness.
  21. Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc Wine Chile

    Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    This Sauvignon just goes from strength to strength when it comes to great valued wine. Achieving an astonishing standard for the price, this white really shows true Sauvignon Blanc character.
    Carta Vieja have a brilliant knack of getting serious zeal across in both their reds, and whites like this one. This is a crisp, clean white wine with a lovely note of elderflower. Cracking party wine. Cracking everydayer. Open it up and take some time out to relax.
  22. Cigarra Portuguese Red Wine Portugal

    Cigarra Red 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Portuguese wines are increasing in popularity and, going by this example, it's little wonder. Offering extremely high quality, distinctive wines at fantastic value for money, this country certainly deserves to become as well known for its table wines as for its ports.
    This particular red is a smooth, easy-drinking blend of little-known yet fantastic grape varieties, including Castelão, Camarate, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Miúda.
  23. Cigarra Rosé Wine Portugal

    Cigarra Rosé 2014

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Casa Santos Lima seem to have the Midas touch. We have half a mind to take all our jewellery over there and see if they can turn it all a shimmering gold. This is why we are stocking as many of their wines as possible, including the best-selling Quinta de Bons Ventos.
    This rosé wine has a beguiling, deep pink hue that, on the palate, reveals intense aromas of strawberries and raspberries, with excellent structure and balanced, refreshing acidity. All for £7.
  24. Carta Vieja Cabernet Sauvigon Chilean Red Wine

    Carta Vieja Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Chile does a number of things well: it does some pretty nice mountains and it can do miraculous escapes from mines very well but, here at Oddbins, we rather like them for their oh-so affordable, brilliant, fruit-forward wines. They have a particular knack with Cabernet Sauvignon, from which they have coaxed, in this particular instance, winning aromas of black cherries and berries and a palate of bilberries, cassis and mature blackberries, supported by soft and elegant tannins.
  25. Red Boar Bobal Spanish Red Wine

    Red Boar Bobal 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    *SNORT. GRUNT ... WOBBLY CANTER* Where are they? Where 'ave those berries gone? AH. There they are. *NOM NOM NOM* ... Meet Red Boar. He's a lively, happy-go-lucky boar from Galicia who boasts strong, earthy, berry and vegetal aromas, has a stout structure and is very likeable.
    Although it absolutely loves truffles, Red Boar wine is more of an everyday kind of character and would be more than content with something simple, rustled up midweek. *OINK*
  26. Couleur De Rouge Red Wine

    Couleur De Rouge 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Claudia Serra is a specialist in the Languedoc region and produces some exceptional wines at Vignerons. All of the fruity wines produced are fresh and balanced while not to excessive in alcohol.
    The Couleur De Rouge is garnet red in colour with hints of blue. It offers a fresh and clean palate, with touches of red fruits and spice. On the finish it has fresh and mellow tannins.
  27. Couleur De Rosé Wine

    Couleur de Rosé 2016

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Another excellent rosé by well known winemaker Claude Serra. The rosé is macerated for 8 to 12 hours before being fermented before filtering.

    It is pale in colour, offering a sweet nose with flavours of strawberries complimented by pepper and menthol notes. On the palate it is crisp, with a great balance between the rich fruity aromas and freshness. It provides a long and fresh finish.
  28. Terra Noble Merlot Red Wine

    Terra Noble Merlot 2015

    Now £7.00

    Was £7.50

    £7.00

    It's already been a long day. Crawling through the strata of humanity, its voices buzzing through the electric wires, erupting onto screens, springing out of the phone lines or flashing up on texts. I dream of the couch, a movie and a glass of wine. I'm definitely dropping into the shop for a Merlot on the way home tonight!
  29. Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Now £7.00

    Was £7.50

    £7.00

    David Bowie loved to be musical and was a visual chameleon. Sauvignon Blanc likes to shape shift too. This white grape can change its flavour of wine according to where it's grown. From Bordeaux to New Zealand this grape has many guises across the globe.

    In Chile, Sauvignon Blanc comes out in a sparkling body suit of citrus and tropical fruits. Like our favourite Starman, Sauvignon Blanc morphs like Bowie's face and words.
  30. Sierra Creek White Zinfandel Rose NV

    Sierra Creek White Zinfandel Rosé NV

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Everyone is guilty of a little white lie now and then. Zimilarly, how many of uz don't commit the odd zin? But maybe it all dependz on intention. It might juzt be mizchief, or joie de vivre; or perhapz you do it to make zomeone feel better. But iz there really any harm in it?

    Of courze, big zins are different. Dark and intenze, they can often leave a bitter tazte in the mouth. Rezt azzured, though, no one iz going to hold it againzt you if you zuccumb now and then to a little white zin. Or, zhould we zay a little pink zin, perhapz?
  31. Cop de Ma Blanca  White Wine

    Cop de Ma Blanca 2014

    Now £7.20

    Was £8.00

    £7.20

    A vibrant Garnacha Blanca from Catalonia, from a producer whose name translates as 'lend a hand', with a label that refers to the Castells of Catalonia, the human pyramids that form an eye-popping attraction in so many public festivities in the region. The Castells, great symbols of co-operation, were declared by UNESCO in 2010 to be one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

    Crikey! But speaking of orals and intangibles, the region makes a remarkable amount of utterly wonderful wines, and we'd be delighted to let anybody give us a hand to drink this refreshing, creamy, green apple packed, delicious white wine!
  32. Dolia Sauvignon Blanc

    Dolia Sauvignon Blanc 2011

    £7.25

    £7.25

    Dolia. A refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from Gascony, SW France. But, little did we know, it is also a defunct Bishop's seat in Sardinia, founded in 1100 AD. Well, this got us interested in this Mediterranean isle and we discovered, gleefully, that the word "sardonic" comes from the result of a native herb that causes convulsive laughter in its victims. Who knew?
    Anyway, like we said, this is a clean, crisp drop of white wine and would make a good plus one at any party.
  33. Macon Village Aurore

    Mâcon-Villages L'Aurore 2015 - HALF BOTTLE - 375ml

    £7.25

    £7.25

    It's so cute! Aw! Look at the ickle thing! Hmm, explain myself? Well, the super-duper Burgundian co-operative, Cave de Lugny, have made teensy (37.5cl) bottles of Macon-Villages and it's seriously tasty! We know there's not always much of a bang-for-buck ratio with smaller bottled wines, but this is definitely good value. Smooth, clean, soft, gently fruity and minerally, it's all you could ever need.
  34. Quinta de Bons Ventos Red Wine Portugal

    Quinta de Bons Ventos 2015

    £7.25

    £7.25

    Nothing short of a sensation, this little red wine has been a success story at Oddbins over the past few years, such is its astonishing quality when price is considered.
    A Portuguese blend of four red varieties, this is ripe and warm with juicy flavours and is amazingly food friendly. It's usually almost impossible to find this much character and pizazz in a wine at this price but this red is truly the real deal.
  35. Pellegrino Marsala Superiore Garibaldi Dolce NV - Half Bottle 375ml

    Pellegrino Marsala Superiore Garibaldi Dolce NV - Half Bottle 375ml

    £7.50

    £7.50

    Marsala is really a wonderful thing. Made in the area around the ancient coastal town of the same name on the far west coast of Sicily, it smacks of Italian sunshine. Indeed, if you've used up all your leave this year, this could make a fine replacement for a vacanza Italiana. With figs, prunes and mesmeric caramel depths from its two years in oak barrels, this is a real delight and, at a bargainous £6.50, it is so much cheaper than a holiday.
  36. 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.
  37. Terra Noble Carménère 2015

    Terra Noble Carmenere 2015

    £7.50

    £7.50

    A while ago, a French winemaker was visiting Chile's vineyards. Striding imperiously through the vineyards and inspecting some grapes he declared 'No you peasants, this is not Merlot'.

    It was an old Bordeaux red grape variety called Carménère. In fact, Chile had thus far been bottling this grape and labelling it as Merlot. The visitor strode off into the sunset feeling very smug indeed, but Chilean winemakers had the last laugh.

    Carménère is a beautiful wine in its own right. It's full bodied, jam packed with raspberry and chocolate flavours and slightly spicy on the finish. It's since become one of this nation's most successful red wines and now a signature grape variety.
  38. Palesa Pinotage (Fair Trade) 2011

    Palesa Pinotage (Fair Trade) 2011

    £7.50

    £7.50

    Palesa, a common female name in South Africa, reflects the magnificent balance of qualities that characterise African women; strength and elegance. If they're talking about lady lions, the other characteristic this wine must embody is work ethic. Those boy lions are a bit lazy, aren't they? The ladies do the hunts, look after the cubs, pay the council tax and what are the men doing? Sitting around drinking delicious fair-trade Pinotage, when the women get in the bottles are drained! Ridiculous, they don't want to get their glorious 80s glam-rock hair styles ruined is what it is... Get a job you bums!
  39. 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.
  40. La Granja 360 Verdejo Viura 2016

    La Granja 360 Verdejo Viura 2016

    £7.50

    £7.50

    You'd think the peacock would be proud of itself, with such beautiful plumage and gorgeous looks. But it harboured a regret. It wished it could fly better. Flashy as they might be, its feathers weren't the best for travelling. The peacock also had a dream. It wished to visit foreign lands.

    One day, a warm wind from the South brought delicate floral scents and citrus aromas, so soft and languid it lulled the bird to sleep. The peacock dreamed of soaring. Of crossing hilltops, toying in the clouds. And when it woke, to its surprise, it found itself in Spain. Magic. All it takes is a little belief, and this wine will transport you as well.
  41. 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.
  42. 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!
  43. Frunza Pinot Noir Romanian Red Wine

    Frunza Pinot Noir 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    A Pinot Noir, at this price? From Romania? That's got to be rubbish, hasn't it? Or it's got to come with a catch. We have to admit, that's what we thought when we first got this little number in. So we cracked open a bottle straight away to prove ourselves right.

    And thank Bacchus we did: far from being rubbish, it was indeed a total bargain, and there was no catch - this is budget wine that's not just good for the money, it's just plain good. Full, rich and juicy. Down with prejudice! Up with Romanian Pinot Noir!
  44. La Girouette Sauvignon Blanc

    La Girouette Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £7.75

    £7.75

    When you're choosing wine, the options can seem baffling. We have seen grown men weeping, rocking on the floor at their local corner shop for a beacon, something - anything - to guide them through the bewildering array of wines that the shop keep know nothing about. At Oddbins we try to make sure that never happens.
    One way we do this is to say 'if you like X wine, you may like this one too'. So! If you like Loire Sauvignon Blanc, you are going to love La Girouette. It delivers the tang-tastic citrus fruit of Loire Sauvignons with a little more fruit vibrancy, from the fulsome Languedoc sun.
  45. Gavi Miganego White Wine from Italy

    Gavi Miganego 2013

    'Oranges and lemons say the bells of St Clements,' is how the old rhyme goes. The rhyme then proceeds to get extremely dark, terrorising children with threats of heads being chopped off. Which is a shame, because Oranges and Lemons could have made for a nice analogy for Gavi Mignanego, which also says oranges lemons.

    This white wine also says lightly honeyed lemon and apple, although there isn't a set of London bells that rhymes with apple. Do let us know if we're wrong on that one though.
  46. Frunza Pinot Grigio White Wine

    Frunza Pinot Grigio 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    Over recent years Pinot Grigio has become the definitive Italian grape for white wine, and by common consent the best Italian PGs come from the North East of that country, and the further North and East you go, the better they get. So what happens if you carry on travelling North and East beyond Italy's borders?

    Well, eventually - and very roughly - you get to Romania, where not only do you find terrific Pinot Grigio wines, but you find it at a terrific Romanian price. Well, it certainly stands to reason, but does it stand up to a taste test? Oh yes, oh yes it does.
  47. Quinta de Azevedo Vinho Verde 2016 Portugal Wine

    Quinta de Azevedo Vinho Verde 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    One of the most sought-after white styles of the moment, Portuguese Vinho Verde is a convention in its own right: one of those wines whose intrinsic quality offers that special something that certain white lovers want but can't describe. Its particular character comes from a faint twinkling almost spritz on the tip of the tongue and at just 11.5% this will slip down like a dream. Pale, dry and clean with only an ounce of delicate flavour.
  48. La Girouette Merlot Languedoc Red Wine

    La Girouette Merlot 2015

    £7.75

    £7.75

    The La Girouette Merlot is a well balanced, smooth red wine from the E.I Wines selection. It has notes of soft and jammy blackberry and juicy plum, alongside creamy tannins. An excellent companion to a hearty casserole.
