  1. 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.
  2. Alma de Blanco Godello Spanish Wine

    Alma de Blanco Godello 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    A few years ago, Rias Baixas, and Albarino were the region and grape names to drop to prove your wine aficionado credentials. These days, those names have become almost mainstream, and it's the tiny neighbouring region of Monterrei - and Albarino's doppelganger Godello - that you need to be talking about to show off your esoteric knowledge. Like Albarino, Godello is crisp, fresh and so friendly to seafood it risks an injunction. Snap it up while it's still an undiscovered (and under valued) gem.
  3. Blau Cel 2015 White Wine Spanish

    Blau Cel 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    High up in the sky, a worried-looking coyote is clinging to a faltering Acme ‘Mars-or-Bust’ space rocket. ‘Bust’ is the clear winner. Far below him is a crazy quilt of cartoon farmland, and his look turns to one of resignation as he realises that as soon as he's fallen into it, the rocket will follow, landing on his head. Never mind, coyote, at least you're landing in Moisès Virgili's wonderfully higgledy-piggledy vineyards in Tarragona, and you can now spend your days happily running round tending to the differing needs of all the little plots, and making this aromatic, white fruited, refreshing and entirely Mediterranean organic white. It's got to be better than the Grand Canyon!
  4. Bougrier Anjou Chenin Blanc White Wine

    Bougrier Anjou Chenin 2016

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Like the Clan MacLeod in epic 1980s sci-fi/fantasy, Highlander, the Bougrier family have been around for a long time. But, thankfully, they don't have that nasty Kurgan bloke bothering them at every turn because otherwise they'd have no time at all to make such delicious wines.

    This delightful Chenin is the perfect way to discover slightly sweeter styled wines. The touch of fruity sweetness is tempered by lovely crisp acidity and is bursting with fresh peach and orange blossom loveliness. Take that, Kurgan!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Chianti Sogatia Italy Red Wine

    Chianti Sogatia 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    This is an impressively neat little bargain Chianti that's on the bodysome, flavoursome side of this classic Italian style. This slightly more buxom red is moreishly drinkable, soft and lip-smackingly ripe. The palate is still classic though - with dark cherry and plum. This really is the wine to match with your takeaway pizza and a good classic gangster movie.
  10. Cigarra Rosé Wine Portugal

    Cigarra Rosé 2016

    £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.
  11. 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.
  12. Dolia Sauvignon Blanc

    Dolia Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Jean Luc Colombo Le Vent Blanc France

    Jean-Luc Colombo Côte du Rhône 'Le Vent Blanc' 2015

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Jean-Luc Colombo's wines provide exceptional quality for every day Rhône drinking. The affectionate nickname for husband, father, winemaker and charismatic figurehead, Jean-Luc, is 'the winemaking wizard of the Rhône Valley' and this sassy, swaggeringly-fruited blend of Clairette Blanche and Rousanne really does feel like it's sprinkled with magic.
  21. 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.
  22. Les Cabotines Touraine Rosé Wine

    Les Cabotines Touraine Rosé 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Dry, crisp and delicate, this rosé wine is practically summer in a glass! Exibiting a delightful 'pelure d'oignon' (onion skin) pale pink colour, with fruity, spicy nose.

    This delightfully aromatic yet elegant nose leads to clean, refreshing flavours and ends with a lingering finish that sings on the palate. A great choice for the garden...
  23. 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.
  24. Madeira Barbeito Boal Reserva

    Madeira Barbeito Boal Reserva

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Just as you (probably) wouldn't choose to watch a saccharin sweet rom-com packed to the rafters with needy American teenagers who really should just count their blessings, but nor would you (probably) want to watch a four-part documentary on paint drying, you don't want your Madeira to be cloying, and you don't want it to be too dry.

    Vinhos Barbeito are experts at striking this balance and this marmalade and cane sugar-flavoured - yet moreishly refreshing - Madeira Boal is testament to that.
  25. Manz Pomar do Espirito Red Wine

    Manz Pomar do Espirito Santo 2014

    £16.50

    £16.50

    We all should perhaps take a leaf out of Andre Manz book when it comes to quality over quantity and appreciate the little things in life. Lucky for us there is enough of this stunning wine to go around, for us to fully appreciate the high quality that Manz has worked so hard on.

    Pomar do Espirito has a harmonious aromatic complexity, fresh acidity and a natural freshness allowing for great ageing potential.
  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. Miles Mossop Saskia

    Miles Mossop 'Saskia' 2013

    £19.00

    £19.00

    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!
  29. 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.
  30. Bourgogne Pinot Noir Nuiton-Beaunoy Red Wine

    Nuiton-Beaunoy Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2013

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Sometimes tasting notes can seem so far-fetched you wonder whether the writer is actually taking you for a ride. If we were to say that the intense fragrance of this lovely Pinot Noir has the perfumed cedarwood spice that might best be reminiscent of the most expensive and exclusive eau de cologne, you might just baulk at the suggestion! But it's the kind of character that sets this fragrant Burgundy wine apart and makes it Pinot with personality. A wine for flashes of personal expression.
  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. 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.
  33. 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.
  34. 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.
  35. 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!
  36. Sancerre Rosé Etienne de Loury

    Sancerre Rosé Etienne de Loury 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Deceptively delicate, Etienne de Loury's Sancerre Rosé will blow you clean away with its concentrated, clean red fruits and fresh-as-a-daisy, morning dew-esque minerality.

    What was it Muhammed Ali said? 'Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee'? Well this doesn't sting like a bee, rather it does a double somersault with a half twist up to you and, instead of knocking you out, lands a delicate kiss on your forehead. Lovely.
  37. 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.
  38. Tannu Bianco Di Sicilia IGT Italian White Wine

    Tannu Bianco di Sicilia IGT 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    If you have a raw talent, let it shine. That's what we say. Subo had a talent, she let it shine: some would say the world's better for it. Likewise David Blaine: he knew he could sit in boxes and stuff to get people's attention and he did. Fair play.

    The producers of Tannu have recognised the raw talent of their Sicilian grapes, and know that they needn't taint them with pesticides, fertilisers or fancy techniques to make great wines: they know that, left to their own devices, the grapes produce flipping lovely, crisp, lemon and pineapple-scented beauties, just like this one. They are so right. Let it shine people, let it shine.
  39. 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.
  40. 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.
  41. Viña Leyda 'Canelo' Syrah 2014

    Viña Leyda 'Canelo' Syrah 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    ***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.
  42. Viña Leyda Falaris Chardonnay Chilean White Wine

    Viña Leyda Falaris Chardonnay 2015

    £11.75

    £11.75

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

    What a difference a subtle misspelling can make. Falaris is probably the best value Chardonnay we’ve ever tasted, the kind that scares the bejesus out of Burgundy. Phalaris was a Sicilian tyrant who allegedly ate babies and roasted people alive inside a bronze bull statue.

    So,be careful. Because that error on your shopping list could take your dinner party down a very different route. We recommend going with the “F” spelling, which will give you a wonderfully crisp cool-climate Chardonnay packed with lemon, tangerine, almond, cream and salty mineral flavours.
  43. Villa Wolf Dry Riesling German White Wine

    Villa Wolf Dry Riesling 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    You: 'Doctor Loosen, help me! I need a Riesling that's crisp and balanced, with delicate flavours of peach and nectarine, wrapped up in a cool mineral cloak!' Dr Loosen (producer of Villa Wolf Dry Riesling 2014: 'Sure, zis is my pleasure. Just take a sip of zis Riesling and you vill be mozt happy wiz ze results.'

    This is the kind of scenario that we envisage happening and we feel it's only responsible to stock Villa Wolf Dry Riesling 2014 in case you can't find Dr. Loosen in time. Just doing our job, folks.
