  1. 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..."
  2. Sancerre Bougrier 2015 white wine

    Bougrier Sancerre 2016

    £16.00

    £16.00

    This wine is so fist-thumpingly fresh, so buttock-clenchingly minerally, so eye-poppingly citrusy that, if you try it, you might for a moment mistake yourself for Brian Blessed, immediately start charging around, tearfully declaring "Gordon's alive!!" to anyone who'll listen and generally make yourself known to ear drums the world over. So, if you've ever wondered what it's actually like to be Brian Blessed, this is the wine for you.
  3. Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Vintage White Wine

    Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that you have to go to the New World to get really good value in the classic French grape varieties, like sauvignon blanc. Or is it? Here's a Loire Valley sauvignon that's as crisp, fresh and grassy as a newly mowed meadow, with elegant minerality and a subtlety and restraint that's reminiscent of classic Sancerre or Pouilly Fume, at half the price. Which sounds like pretty good value to us. So set aside pride and prejudice and leave yourself open to persuasion with this classic white wine.
  4. 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.
  5. Chablis Domaine Alain Geoffroy 2015

    Chablis Domaine Alain Geoffroy 2016

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Far and away the most successful Chablis in our range over the past few years, this white wine is loved and adored by all who try it, like it, and come back for more.

    A guarantee of respectability, with its white table cloth dinner party tone and classic presentation you'll need no further help with ideas for take-round bottles or presentable offerings.

    This has everything you'd expect from a Chablis: dry, restrained and delicately laced with flavour and minerality.
  6. Chablis Jules Billaud Burgundy Wine

    Chablis Jules Billaud 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    There's a lot of fuss in Chablis about a precocious new talent called Samuel Billaud, of Billaud-Simon fame. He's regarded as one of the best wine producers in the region and definitely one to keep an eye on.

    Luckily for us (and possibly down to a family feud... but we're staying out of it) he has decided to branch out on his own, so we're ecstatic to introduce the Jules Billaud Chablis, made by Samuel exclusively for Oddbins under his eldest son's name. It's guaranteed to grab you firmly by the Chablis.
  7. 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.
  8. Clos Bellane "Altitude" Côtes du Rhône Rosé Wine 2013

    Clos Bellane "Altitude" Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    At Oddbins Towers we call this The Pink Panther. It bears no resemblance to the sneaky cartoon character in the title sequence of the film and its winemaker is certainly not a bumbling fool like Inspector Jacques Clouseau.

    No, we call this The Pink Panther because it's a diamond, a precious and brilliant diamond with a delicate pink hue. In fact this rosé wine is so good and has proven so popular we've had to employ Cato to protect it in our warehouse. He's just so unpredictable; half our staff are off with injuries.
  9. Domaine Condamine Viognier White Wine

    Domaine Condamine Viognier 2016

    £12.00

    £12.00

    It's a hot day, you're meandering through the picturesque streets of Nézignan-l'Evêque. A Citroen 2CV filled with fruit, preserves and wild flora trundles past you up the hill towards the market. The driver is a little French chap, you know the sort; onions, beret, cigarette and a stripy t-shirt.

    Momentarily distracted by a passing beauty he doesn't notice the steepness of the incline and opens the boot with a flourish. Produce tumbles from the vehicle down the slope. You are buried in an avalanche of apricots, peaches, honey and flowers. That's what this wine tastes like!
  10. Domaine La Tour Beaumont Haut-Poitou 2016

    Domaine La Tour Beaumont Haut-Poitou 2016

    £11.50

    £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.
  11. Domaine du Salvard Cheverny 'Vignes des Marnières'

    Famille Delaille Cheverny 'Vignes des Marnieres' 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    There's more to Loire valley Sauvignon than Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. Even occasionally more than just Sauvignon Blanc. This lesser known gem of a white wine delivers all the bone dry, nettles and flint crispness you'd expect from it's better known near neighbours, but with 15% Chardonnay added to this blend there's just a hint of something richer, rounder and riper that will take you pleasantly by surprise. And without a big name premium its something of a bargain to boot!
  12. FP Branco by Filipa Pato Portuguese Wine

    FP Branco by Filipa Pato 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Luis Pato is one of Portugal's leading winemakers. Comparing him to Darth Vader seems cruel, but the force is very strong with his offspring. His daughter, the rebellious Princess Filipa Pato produces the FP Branco using Bical and Arinto (indigenous Portuguese grape varieties, not moons of Tatooine).

    It cuts a line as clean as a lightsaber and explodes on the palate like a proton torpedo in a Death Star exhaust vent. Please note Filipa isn't an actual princess and has no affiliation with George Lucas. However, judging by this wine she'll soon become as legendary as Star Wars.
  13. 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.
  14. Gavi Produttori del Gavi White Wine Italian

    Gavi Produttori del Gavi 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    A daydream-awakening pinch of oneself may be needed when you see the price of this smart little Gavi. However the reality is that we've found another one of those true odd bins that give this company its name. And in this case, one for which the price has worked out particularly favourably.

    This is actually very true to Gavi in the way you'd expect and surprisingly good. Fresh and clean and superbly balanced at just 11% alcohol, this delicate wine slips down exceptionally well. The perfect finishing touch to a relaxing evening.
  15. 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.
  16. Janeil Gros Manseng Sauvignon Blanc French White Wine

    Janeil Gros Manseng Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £8.50

    £8.50

    We know 'Gros Manseng' isn't the nicest name for a grape. In fact it sounds like an unflattering description of a singer. But forget all that: its cleansing acidity and flavours of quince and white blossom make it a top companion for Sauvignon Blanc and more than compensates for its unfortunate moniker.
  17. Jean-Luc Colombo Rose ‘Les Pins Couches’

    Jean-Luc Colombo Rosé 'Les Pins Couches' 2015

    £10.00

    £10.00

    This crisp, spicy rosé shares many traits with its nutty namesake detective, Colombo. They both have a decided twinkle in their eye and a deceptively lightness of touch that belies a lovely depth.

    And, whilst we couldn't rightly claim that they both smell of crunchy red cherries and delicate spice, we can definitely say that they both have a memorable finish that, just when you think it's over, leans and intones 'just one more thing'...
  18. Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand White

    Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £13.50

    £13.50

    In Japan "kuru-kuru" means to spin around and "kuru-kuru-pa" is a colloquialism meaning insane. Although the Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc actually takes its name from a Maori ancestor of the winemaker, the Japanese seems kind of fitting as this wine is insanely good and its heady aromas and flavours will send your taste buds into a spin. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc at its finest, each dizzyingly impressive sip will lure you spiralling back in for another.
  19. L'Aurore Mâcon-Villages 2015 - HALF BOTTLE - 375ml

    L'Aurore Mâcon-Villages 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.
  20. Longview The Whippet Sauvignon Blanc Australian Wine

    Longview 'The Whippet' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £13.50

    £13.50

    ***Commended at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Well. When we got into the business of selling wine, little did we imagine that we would become the go-to business for Whippet lovers nationwide. But, for obvious reasons, Longview winery’s Whippet Sauvignon Blanc has gone down a storm with the canine-loving community.

    Thankfully, it happens to be a cracking little wine too. Racier than a Whippet in a field of sheep, it is bursting with gooseberry, asparagus and nettle flavours.
  21. Luis Alegre Unoaked Tempranillo - Rioja Alavesa

    Luis Alegre Unoaked Tempranillo 2016 - Rioja Alavesa

    £9.00

    £9.00

    The Joven style of Spanish red is an all too often overlooked and undervalued one. Let's not forget Spain is an essentially hot and dry country and with that heat comes the need for refreshment. With Joven you get a more mouthwatering, refreshing, unoaked style of red that, heat or not, is surprisingly versatile and incredibly meal-time friendly. This medium-bodied red is a brighter, crisper, cleaner, crunchier style of red Rioja.
  22. Lyme Bay Bacchus British White Wine

    Lyme Bay Sandbar 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    Lyme Bay Sandbar is a delicious off-dry, crisp wine made with the bacchus grape that displays refreshing characters of grapefruit, nettle & elderflower, with an exceptionally long finish.
  23. Mâcon-Lugny Eugène Blanc Cave de Lugny White Wine

    Mâcon-Lugny Eugène Blanc Cave de Lugny 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    ***Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards 2014***

    An absolutely delicious classic white Burgundy, with the broad, exuberant charm typical of its 100% Chardonnay-based content. This is a lively number, which benefits from its relatively high acidity yet presents a decent, full-bodied flavour, reminiscent of apples gently warmed by the sun. A really good, mouth-watering, easy drinking dry white.
  24. Manuka Springs Pinot Noir 2016 New Zealand

    Manuka Springs Pinot Noir 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Everyone agreed the old horse-drawn cart was just the vehicle to transport the Pinot grapes from vineyard to winery, but they failed to take into account the antique craftsmanship. The suspension springs were fashioned from the tough, ungiving wood of the Manuka tree, and the poor Pinot was jostled so roughly the grapes began to split. As the sun hit the broken berries, a deep aroma of warm raspberries rose from the cart and the juice began to ferment. Happily, however, the resulting wine was so elegant that to this day the first crushing is done driving the grapes round in that very same old cart.
  25. Manuka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine New Zealand

    Manuka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £10.75

    £10.75

    All over Marlborough unusual geysers spurt manuka honey high into the air. Although initially this was a sticky nightmare for the locals, since manuka honey joined goji berries and pink Himalayan rock salt in the mystical list of superfoods, the locals have embraced the manuka springs.

    The world renowned Sherwood Estate makes this wonderful Sauvignon Blanc in their honour. A veritable fruit salad up the nose, gooseberries, limes, guavas and passionfruits, followed by a tangy lemony slap on the taste buds.
  26. Martin Codax Burgans Albarino Spanish White wine

    Martín Códax Burgans Albariño 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    This little gem is really, really worth knowing about. There is a distinctive style of fresh, sea-licked, zesty-white in Galicia that, frankly, makes us wildly excited. We defy anyone who serves this wine with some simply-cooked seafood and a dose of sunshine, to not fall in love, ditch their current boyfriend/girlfriend/mates/dog and move to Spain to shack up with Martin Codax. To know it is to love it.
  27. Menetou Salon Henry Pellé 'Les Bornés' Loire France Wine

    Menetou Salon Henry Pellé 'Les Bornes' 2014

    £14.50

    £14.50

    From the producer who almost single-handedly put Menetou-Salon on the map as a serious competitor to its big-name neighbours, Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, this wine is really a delight.

    Crisp and cleansing, with brilliantly pure lemon fruit, this is what the Loire is all about and, between you and us, the prices haven't caught up yet, so now's a good time to get in there.
  28. Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 2013 South African White Wine

    Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £11.00

    £11.00

    A white that caused great excitement last time we had it in stock; this is the Sauvignon Blanc made by Mulderbosch, one of the most respected wineries of South Africa. In fact it's been said by some to be the very best of white producers in South Africa full stop! A Sauvignon with great presence, fruit and balance this has steadily become a mainstay of our South African range. Dry with a fruity start but a clean, fresh finish.
  29. Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling Australia White Wine

    Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling 2016

    £14.50

    £14.50

    The Eden Valley is one of those rare places in the world that has nigh on perfect conditions for growing the delicate, choosy Riesling grape. It has it all: altitude (the Pewsey Vale vineyard is 500 metres above sea level), undulating hills and sandy loam soils with some clay sub-soils.

    This might not sound jaw-droppingly exciting but it's pretty much paradise on earth for Riesling and means that winemaker Louisa Rose can access the grape's intense crushed stone and lemon/lime fruit flavours, with hints of dried rosemary.
  30. Picpoul de Pinet Camp de Rousse 2013 white wine

    Picpoul de Pinet Camp de Rousse 2016

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Get ready for a crashing tidal wave of people claiming they've known about Picpoul for years, have always known about it, and insist it's the only white wine they'll ever drink. But the wannabes might soon have to find a new darling to boast about as this useful dry white appellation has gradually come to the attention of a wider audience. Picpoul the wine is made from Picpoul the grape - and this is a clean and dry affair, but not too plain and simple, with just the right amount of subtle fruit. Perfect balance.
  31. Hunawihr Pinot Blanc French White Wine

    Pinot Blanc Hunawihr 2016

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Interesting Fact Number 1: Did you know that historically Pinot Blanc was used in both Burgundy and Champagne and still can be used in both today, although it rarely is? We reckon those big cry-babies just couldn't make anything as good as this Alsace Pinot Blanc.

    Interesting Fact Number 2: Pinot Blanc is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir. Although we like to imagine that this means the grapes have little webbed toes, hunchbacks or pips on the outside, really it just means that they come out white!
  32. Ribbonwood Sauvignon Blanc White Wine NZ

    Ribbonwood Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Smell plays a massive part in what you taste. That's why when your nose is all bunged up food tastes bland. If you don't believe us pinch your nose and eat a mouthful of banana, you'll notice that it tastes muted, but when you release your nostrils you get a whoosh of banana flavour.

    The Ribbonwood Sauvignon Blanc is the epitome of aromatic; drinking a glass of this wine should be renamed "arom-ercise" as it's a veritable nostril workout.
  33. Salomon Groovey Grüner Veltliner Austrian White Wine

    Salomon Groovey Gruner Veltliner 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Once in while a wine comes along whose anonymity sells it to those who want to be drinking something that no one else is drinking. Now this doesn't always guarantee a good wine but in this case we have an absolute winner.

    Characterised by its own hallmark style but still crisp, dry, fruity and approachable this is a wine with really remarkable appeal. A dry white with that lovely hard-to-grasp balance that every white drinker wants. This fish deserves a bigger pond!
  34. Sancerre Etienne de Loury French White Wine

    Sancerre Etienne de Loury 2016

    £20.00

    £20.00

    All the cognoscente seem to reflect positively on this well-established Loire house. An Oddbins long-stander and a label much trusted and liked, this Sancerre is clean, fresh and extremely elegant with an intense focus of flavour.

    You'll find citrus, minerality and a meadowy grassiness. Rather like happening upon a lemon tree on a rocky outcrop.... in a field. One of the best examples of this much admired classic form.
  35. Semeli Feast White Wine

    Semeli Feast White 2016

    £9.00

    £9.00

    'THUS UZ SPAAARRGHHHTAA!!!!!!!' So bellowed Gerard Butler at a troublesome guest in the film '300', which tells the tale of Greece's King Leonidas overcoming the Persians at Thermopylae with just 300 men. Well, fast-forward 2,493 years, and Sparta is a much more welcoming place and you can find another, more gentle Leonidas, seeing to his vines in Mantinia, from which he makes this fresh, rose-petal and lychee flavoured beauty. Dry, but with an abundance of floral perfume, this is a superb choice for a dry white drinker looking for something a bit different.
  36. Tannu Rosso Di Sicilia IGT Italian Wine

    Tannu Rosso Di Sicilia 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    This red is almost Tardis-like in its ability to transport its owner between worlds. Mercifully, unlike the Tardis, its layers of juicy black cherry, mocha and spice are highly unlikely to take you to a parallel universe with intergalactic aggressors but, instead, to the heavenly hills of Sicily, at an al fresco table with a view over the harbour.

    We say 'highly unlikely' but you never know. That's the risk you take with this wine.
  37. 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).
  38. Tupari Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Wine

    Tupari Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £18.50

    £18.50

    As crisp as a Ryvita, as elegant as Audrey Hepburn and as mineral as a Loire white, this shows another dimension to the Kiwi classic. From a winemaker that brought you the legendary Dashwood Sauvignon while working at Vavasour; this beauty is a real rival for Sancerre. Extended ageing on the lees imparts a creamy citrussy depth that perfectly contrasts the refreshing white peach, orange zest, melon and passion fruit. This has summer written all over it, so try it with quiche, goats' cheese, rocket salads or asparagus.
  39. Xerolithia White 2014 Greece White Wine

    Xerolithia White 2016

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Based in a region with a strong winemaking history, and recently overhauled by a company that is investing time, love and money into it, the Mediterra Winery is fighting fit and making some cracking wines from indigenous grape varieties. Made from the rarely-seen Vilana grape, this white is super crispy clean and exhibits a host of tropical and citrus fruits. Its exuberant summery fruitiness is ideal for beach barbecues. Try with BBQd red snapper.
