  1. Ayres de Escal Priorat

    Ayres de Escal Priorat 2012

    £13.25

    £13.25

    Way back when in 1194, a group of very clever monks decided to plant some Vitis Vinifera vines on the vertiginously steep slopes of Priorat. This was a great idea because the loose, granite-like 'llicorella' soil there is chuffing marvellous for Garnacha and Carignan. Fast forward 800 years to the 1990s and, after a long fallow period, a group of spunky young winemakers had the equally good idea of resurrecting the region's wine industry. They're making seriously good wine again, like this well-structured, raspberry jam-flavoured beauty. The monks would be proud.
  2. Longview Yakka Shiraz Australian Wine

    Longview 'Yakka' Shiraz 2014

    £16.50

    £16.50

    ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    This wine takes its name not from the Aussie slang for hard work, although judging by its magnificently rich, sturdy and swarthy character, you’d wager they had put a lot of work into it. Nope, this wine takes its name from the striking Australian grass shrub, pictured on the label, which also reveals the producer’s love for their homeland and this, too, shines through in this terroir-driven wine, whose dense, ripe black cherry and white pepper flavours show off the warmth of the Macclesfield micro-climate.
  3. Serabel Côtes du Rhône French Wine

    Serabel Côtes du Rhône 2014

    £9.00

    £9.00

    Everything that Cave de Monterail - the tiny negociants who produce this wine - is geared towards offering outstanding value Côtes du Rhône. They have a very small, highly-skilled winemaking team who self-flagellate if their bosses catch them doing anything inefficiently.

    Er, sorry, what? No, that’s not actually true.

    But their attention to detail and outstanding skillzz have yielded a compact little spice-box of a wine that is liberally endowed with rich, black fruit and bright tannins. No self-flagellation was involved in the making of this wine.
  4. 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.
