  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. Mencia Alma de Tinto Mencia

    Alma de Tinto Mencia 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    Tucked away in the mountains of Spain's wild North West, hard up against the topmost corner of Portugal, Monterrei is one of Iberia's tiniest, and least known wine producing regions. Mencia is the grape native to that rugged part of the world, and, as far as we're aware, found nowhere else. The wine it produces is appropriately wild and brambly, dark and intense, but full of bright, fresh fruit that pulls it up just this side of brooding. A walk on the wild side with a spring in its step.

  3. Barbadillo Pale Cream Fortified Wine Sherry

    Barbadillo Pale Cream Sherry

    £9.50

    £9.50

    With the light fluffiness of a cloud, combined with the delicate, mesmeric nuances of almonds and freshly baked baguettes, this is a little dream of a Sherry. Hints of coconut enter the gentle fray, from the American oak used in the Solera ageing casks.

    We're not trying to psychically drive you or anything (we've been watching too much pseudo-psychoanalytical TV, clearly), but were you to serve up a desert of homemade crème brülée, this would go really rather well.

  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 Rosé d'Anjou 2016

    Bougrier Rosé d'Anjou 2016

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Ah, summertime, when the living is easy, fish are jumping and it's time for rose wine - or something along those lines. And of course, kicking back, shoes off, feet up, on the porch or a picnic blanket in the park is where pink wine comes into its own, but you know what? Why wait?

    It's great as an aperitif any time, or as an accompaniment to lightly spicy food. Or for turning a rainy Tuesday into a lazy, hazy summer Sunday...

  6. 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.

  7. Cabaret Rosé 2016

    Cabaret Rosé 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    ***Silver at Decanter 2014***

    It's one thing to keep passing a business down to your children, it's quite another to keep that line going for 700 years. Yet this is exactly what the wine-making Sumeire family, in Provence, has done.

    Located at the foot of the magnificent Montagne Sainte-Victoire, which inspired artists like Cézanne, this historic winery has produced a classic Provencal rosé: feather-light and elegant, with fresh strawberry and cherry blossom notes.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Casa Lluch Verdil Spanish White Wine

    Casa Lluch Verdil 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    This dry, delicate and very endearing Spanish white from an almost unheard of grape - Verdil - reminds one a little of Sauvignon Blanc but that's to sell its individuality short.

    If we were to make a music video to describe this wine, we would film a cowboy, chopping a pineapple seductively in an oasis in the vivid sunshine of the Arizona desert, with the chirping of crickets emanating from the lush vegetation and someone spraying themselves with a hose in the background.

    Why? Because this wine is simultaneously dry, refreshing, sexy, herby, zippy and evocative. See for yourself!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  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. Gemma Moscato d'Asti Vigna Fiorita Italian White Wine

    Gemma Moscato d'Asti Vigna Fiorita 2015

    £9.50

    £9.50

    This Moscato is a soft, gentle and charmingly sweet white wine, but saved from being sickly by fresher, sage and citrus elements. Which sounds a bit like Alan Titchmarsh, now we come to think of it.

    Indeed, much like Alan, it's maybe not the most dangerous tool in the box, but you could very happily while away an afternoon with it in an English country garden, with it a bowl of strawberries and cream.

  16. Henry Fessy Beaujolais-Villages

    Henry Fessy Beaujolais-Villages 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Well-coloured with relatively high acidity, this is a vivacious Beaujolais abundant with notes of freshly picked berries and traditional boiled sweets.

    With an exceptional amount of personality for a Beaujolais Villages, this particular character has a frank, fresh flavour, and a real liveliness on the palate which makes an ideal drinking partner for any occasion! If you're a lighter wine fan and haven't given Beaujolais a try for a while then start here.

  17. 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...

  18. Lothian Pinot Noir 2013 South African Red Wine

    Lothian Pinot Noir 2015

    £18.50

    £18.50

    South African reds are all dark, meaty and chewy as biltong right? Well no, not all of them. As Bob Dylan famously sang "the wines they are a changin'." Either way this is something new and very, very special.

    Produced by a Scottish family, this is cool-climate Burgundian elegance from the southern hemisphere. Dispel those dark thoughts and turn towards the light.

  19. Luis Alegre Rioja Blanco Viura Spanish White Wine

    Luis Alegre Unoaked Viura Blanco 2016

    £9.50

    £9.50

    And yet another wholly distinctive white from Spain. Such is the diversity and variety available you're unlikely to find wines like them elsewhere.

    If you're one of those who've become just a little too familiar with the likes of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, then Spain might be the next destination for you. The Viura grape here goes to make a distinctly different yet hugely enjoyable, aromatic white Rioja.

  20. 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.

  21. Pazo do Mar Expression Albarino

    Pazo do Mar Ribeiro 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Spain may be best known for reds, and Rioja in particular, but it's arguable that its greatest single contribution to the world of wine is a white - specifically the white wine made from the Albarino grape, native to Galicia in the country's far North-West. This unique, utterly distinctive and truly world class variety produces wine that is super crisp, vivacious and absolutely second to none as a match for seafood, and particularly shellfish. This elegant example from the rapidly emerging Ribeiro region is, as its name suggests, a pure expression of this marvellous grape.

  22. 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.

  23. Poco a Poco Tempranillo Red Wine

    Poco a Poco! Tempranillo 2015

    £8.50

    £8.50

    Incrementalism should be taught in schools. Poco-a-Poco is the way to go. Little by little. Such an approach would put an end to such self-deluding daftness as overnight change, New Year's resolutions, brand new starts and makeovers. Anyway, Poco a Poco is the name of this wine, and it's an apt one.

    This is bright, crisp and gorgeously pure-fruited wine and that is a particularly good thing in this case, as the fruit in question comes from Rioja but, being sold without the nametag, comes without the premium. Piece-by-piece, little-by-little, Poco-a-poco you are sure to fall for this wine.

  24. Robert Oatley Vineyards 'Signature Series' Pinot Noir

    Robert Oatley Vineyards Signature Series Pinot Noir 2015

    £13.50

    £13.50

    History is scattered with memorable "Larrys": there's Lawrence of Arabia, DH Lawrence, Laurence Olivier, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and then there's Larry Cherubino, chief winemaker at Robert Oatley Vineyards. His ability to coax out the most fresh, delicate, wild strawberry and cocoa-y elements of the tricky Pinot Noir grape is enough to cement his place in the Larry Hall of Fame. We salute you, Larry!

  25. 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.

  26. Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas

    Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    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!
