  1. Bourgogne Blanc Posanges 2015

    Bourgogne Blanc Posanges 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    You might think that Burgundy is a bit stuck in its ways. There's often coats-of-arms on the bottles and wine making in the region has predated, we calculate, the invention of sound. (That was by the Burgundian Duke Lars von Metallica, in 654 BC for you history buffs.) Although, they're more advanced than you might think; recently a number of producers have pooled resources so they can fight the plight of hail storms. How? You may rightly ask. By firing rockets at the sky... "Yeah, take that clouds!" Burgundy is modern yet with a respect for its history, just like the style of this wine.

  2. Château Placelière Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie

    Château Placeliere Muscadet-Sevre et Maine Sur Lie 2016 *ORGANIC*

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Muscadet is a gentle soul; kind of like the Joni Mitchell of the wine world; and its playful floral, citrusy charm has been coaxed out expertly in the hands of the Famille Lieubeau, who have been making wine in their lovely corner of the Loire Valley for six generations.

    Much the same as you wouldn't play techno at a folk festival in rural Oxfordshire, you wouldn't serve an oyster platter with Shiraz, you would serve it with this quince, pear and wet-stone Muscadet. Whilst playing Joni Mitchell.

  3. Domaine La Tour Beaumont Haut-Poitou 2016

    Domaine La Tour Beaumont Haut-Poitou 2016

    £11.50

    If someone was to tune into The Only Way is Essex, even if they didn't know what the programme was, you can be fairly sure that they can identify the county in question. Likewise, if you were to tune into Rab C. Nesbitt, you could probably pin it down to Glasgow.

    That's because they have a strong sense of place and it's a similar thing with the Haut-Poitou Sauvignon: its gooseberry, lime and blackcurrant leaf flavours are unmistakably Loire Valley and this is one channel you'll always be glad to tune into.

  4. Huber Riesling Nussdorfer 2014

    Huber Riesling Nussdorfer 2016

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Chalk. It's good stuff. Back in the halcyon days before white boards, school kids relied on chalk to learn about isosceles triangles and other incredibly forgettable items of information. However, chalk is responsible for something else that is much more memorable.

    Yes, the chalk hills of the Traisental in northern Austria give Markus Huber's Riesling vines a healthy work out as they plunge deeper in the soil in search of water. Along the way, they pick up characterful mineral qualities, which appear alongside the citrus and apricot notes in the final wine and chalk up another victory for this most learned of winemakers. 10/10.

  5. 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.

  6. Cantina di Soave Pinot Grigio 'Della Rocca' White Wine

    Pinot Grigio Della Rocca 2016

    £8.00

    £8.00

    Della Rocca: it sounds like a kind of Italian strongman doesn't it? A muscle-clad, moustachioed hunk in silky red shorts, who could sing O Sole Mio whilst balancing on one toe and weightlifting a fir tree. The reality of this wine, however, is rather different: it's the most delicate, nuanced little thing, but its greatness lies not in muscle-power or high alcohol (it's just 11.5%), but in its subtle lemon, pear and acacia notes.

  7. Sauvion IGP Loire 2016

    Sauvion IGP Loire 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    What's your thought on nominative determinism? You know, the idea that if your surname is Baker you're statistically more likely to end up making bread for a living or if your names Cliff you'll have a seagull on your head? A lot of Rhubarb? Well check this out, the winemaker of this fantastically priced Loire is named Pierre-Jean Sauvion and guess what grape he uses... nope not Cabernet Franc... Sauvignon Blanc! With beautiful aromatics of lime, grapefruit, elderflower and steely minerality, it's clear that there's something to this determinism malarkey.

  8. Sierra Creek White Wine NV USA

    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.

  9. Tupari Pinot Gris New Zealand Wine

    Tupari Pinot Gris 2015

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Sitting high upon the cliffs in the Awatere Valley in Marlborough, this wine seems to have taken on the grandeur and liberty of its surroundings. With its bright flavours and pronounced body, you can almost hear the gulls crying out as the waves pound the rocks below. It has been made with passion and expertise, at a tiny, family-run enterprise that has made full use of this exceptional terror to produce an invigorating wine. With towering stone fruit and fresh celery notes, it is a dramatic match for sea fare like Crayfish (if you can clamber down the cliffs to catch it that is).
