  1. 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.
  2. Château La Garde 2005

    Château La Garde Pessac Leognan 2008

    £30.00

    £30.00

    So beautiful is this wine, that grown men and women have been known to drop to their knees and weep, not quite knowing what to do with all the silky, supply, velvety liquid that is contained in this bottle.

    They just weren't prepared for the red cherry and plum purity, the oceanic depths of pure fruit, and the sweet mint and myriad spices that danced across their palates like elves in a forest. They just weren't ready. Are you?
  3. Pecchenino San Luigi Bricco Botti Dolcetto di Dogliani 2012

    Pecchenino San Luigi Bricco Botti Dolcetto di Dogliani 2012

    £22.00

    £22.00

    Like Romeo and Juliet or Antony and Cleopatra, Pecchenino Dolcetto di Dogliani and lamb ragu were born to be with each other. Yes, they are delicious on their own: the San Luigi's criminally pure morello cherry, raspberry and cocoa-y flavours are a sheer joy any time but, pair it with some very slowly stewed lamb ragu, with fresh thyme, rosemary and black olives, ideally made by an Italian Mama, and the pair are exalted into a love story so beautiful that it could have been penned by The Bard himself.
  4. 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.
  5. Pora Py'a de Chile Merlot

    Porã Py'a de Chile Merlot 2015

    Now £6.98

    Was £7.75

    £6.98

    If it were a lonely hearts ad, we think Porã Py'a's Merlot would read something like this: I'm a young charmer with a big heart. My looks are dark and Latino, but my appeal is more than skin-deep... Give me a try and I'll woo you with generosity, a plush feel and a darkly fruity GSOH. My ideal partner would be a gregarious, fun-seeking individual who enjoys partying at the weekend (I love a party), as well as a homely mid-week dinner (we Argentines love our food).
  6. Radford Dale Chardonnay South Africa

    Radford Dale Chardonnay 2016

    £16.50

    £16.50

    Whoever did the paperwork for this wine didn't write one person's name in the box marked "Winemaker", but instead wrote "Team Effort", which we particularly like. It sums up the unassuming, community-based ethos of this fantastic winery.

    But even though we like their ethos, we like their wine even better... This is a subtle, charming Chardonnay that exhibits crisp, limey flavours and elegant minerality, with well-integrated oak. Team, we salute you.
  7. Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2014

    Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2015

    £16.00

    £16.00

    The ridonculously talented Matt Thompson, at Saint Clair, featured on one of our 'Inspire-themed posters, saying 'I became a winemaker because, as a wine drinker, I needed to find a way to make it tax-deductible'. We like his style.

    But, when he made this red, he didn't just get a tax break on Pinot Noir, he created something beautiful: a gentle giant, with mellow Morello cherry, pine needles and hints of smoke. Take that, taxman!
  8. Southern Right Pinotage South African Red

    Southern Right Pinotage 2016

    £15.50

    £15.50

    This wine has a very strong sense of place, which shines through when you drink it. Firstly, Pinotage is a classic flag-bearing wine for South Africa and, secondly, it is named after the majestic Southern Right Whale, that lives exclusively in the southern oceans. Basically if this was a game of Guess Who, this would be a pretty easy guess. And, with such a strong identity, what does it taste like? Soft, supple, gamey, with a firm, balanced structure and drenched in ripe berry flavours: the perfect Pinotage.
