  1. Palacios 'Camins Del Prioriat' 2015 (Red Wine)

    Bodegas Palacios Remondo 'Camins Del Priorat' 2015



    Full bodied, earthy, and deep purple in colour. Not the most attractive man in the world, it's fair to say. But Alvaro was an incurable romantic. And he was in love with the beautiful daughter of a goat baron. Aware his looks were unlikely to draw the maiden's eye, Alvaro instead dedicated a week of nights to building the now famous 'walk', or 'Camins' as it in in Spanish, through the vineyards of Priorat.

    The next time Anna-Maria passed through the vineyards, on her way to milk Daddy's goats, she was overwhelmed by the most extraordinary scent. Spice, black pepper, cherry, bramble. Intoxicating. As if she'd been touched by a prince. To the end of her days - her eyes being closed in reverie at the perfume - she never did know who rushed from the vines and planted a kiss on her lips

  2. Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine

    Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Now £37.80

    Was £42.00


    A red wine with distinctive cassis influence with a cedary spine covered with dark cherry, waxy crayon earthiness, graphite and enticing undertones. On the palate it is rich with blackcurrant and firm ripe tannins indicating that this wine has at least a decade of ageing potential.

  3. Carta Vieja Cabernet Sauvigon Chilean Red Wine

    Carta Vieja Cabernet Sauvignon 2016



    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.

  4. Château Cambon la Pelouse 2013 Red Wine

    Château Cambon la Pelouse 2013



    Like the teacher at school who really understood how to get the best out of you, this Bordeaux is both serious and stimulating and, underneath it all, is a bit of a softy.

    Unusually for a left bank Bordeaux, this red wine is Merlot heavy - 60% to be exact. That Merlot helps to soften the tannins and gives this deep Bordeaux a delicate, silky texture that secures your attention, whilst it educates you as to all the charms of a decent Claret. An edifying tipple.

  5. Château Capbern Gasqueton Saint-Estèphe 2012 France Bordeaux Red Wine

    Château Capbern Gasqueton Saint-Estèphe 2012



    The marvellous thing about good Saint-Estèphe is the flood of minerality that can streak through it and the ample black fruit character that balances it out. Well, this wine doesn't have any of that... Only joking (we're funny aren't we!) Don't worry, the 2012 Château Capbern Gasqueton has all that in bucket loads and, what's more, it won't attempt Dad-humour... *hangs head in shame*. This is a classy Saint-Estèphe from a Château that has stayed in the family from 10 generations no less and, in that time, they've seriously honed the art of winemaking.

  6. Chateau Carignan Cadillac 2009 Red Wine

    Château Carignan Cadillac 2012



    They might seem a fairly austere, old-fashioned lot, but Bordelais(es) tick with hidden passion. On the outside they seem elegant, carefully presented. Some even say a little stuffy. But, what counts is what's under the hood.

    Smooth and sleek on the outside, this intense blend has the structure and verve of a V8 engine. Not surprising, perhaps, given the vines are supplied with totally organic fertiliser from a herd of Limousine*. That's two classic cars in one wine.

    *Limousine cows. But for the purposes of the joke... I mean description.

  7. Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010

    Château Clerc Milon Pauillac 2010



    Baron Phillippe De Rothschild is not just a name on a fancy Bordeaux bottle. Along with his global success as a wine producer, he was also a Grand Prix racing car driver, writer, art patron, film producer, sailor, and poet. But what the world really remembers is his wine making innovations and his relentless pursuit of excellence. Realising Chateau Clerc Milon's quality and enormous potential he purchased this vineyard in 1970. Thus today we are treated to one of his legacies - Clerc Milon's stunning red wine. The 2010 is a full-bodied and forthright wine. Ripe red fruits, orange and chocolate notes. Framed in velvety tannins and a long finish. Rothschild was a man of many talents, but one of his best was his recognition of talent. Such as this outstanding Chateau.

  8. Chateau Clos l'Eglise Cotes de Castillon 2002

    Château Clos l'Eglise Cotes de Castillon 2002

    Now £12.60

    Was £18.00


    Don't you hate it when people say women (or men) are like a fine wine, they only get better with age. Sure, it's a nice sentiment but it's also cliched nonsense. Most of the time you want a fresh fruit driven wine in the same way you may want to have a conversation with a 19-year-old about the latest reality TV show that's gripping the nation.

    Although, sometimes neither of these are going to stimulate you. You're discussing the enlightening work of Voltaire with an Oxford Don and you're holding your own, you need a wine of equal sophistication. A wine such as Chateau Clos L'Eglise Cotes de Castillon, with such gracious maturity Dame Helen Mirren would envy it. An old wine isn't automatically better, then again there's times a young wine simply can't hold up.

  9. Chateau de L'Abbaye Haut Medoc Red Wine

    Château de L'Abbaye Haut Medoc 2013



    The head Abbot of Haut-Médoc was utterly fed up. The vow of silence and bowl hair cuts was getting very tedious. He had a field festooned with fat cows and multiple mushrooms in the meadows . He really wanted a decent glass of red with his meat, so the Abbey gave up the altar decor helpline service (the vow of silence wasn't working with that anyway), and decided to make this red wine. Intense blueberries, plum and oak aromas and a palate of boasting power and finesse. After the vintage, the Abbot happily sat down for a meal and contemplated the moral of this story - 'Don't get whiney, make wine!'.

  10. Chateau de Ricaud Cadillac Red Wine

    Château de Ricaud Cadillac 2012



    The Cadillac luxury car became so popular in America that the term 'The Cadillac of...' meant the best thing in that category. In 1980, Alain Thiénot bought a bottle of Château de Ricaud Cadillac in a posh restaurant in Paris. He must have been tempted to exclaim with a snigger 'This is the Cadillac of all red wines!', but instead he was so flabbergasted by the complex bouquet of strawberry, cherry and liqourice, he bought the estate! Thiénot went on to make this winery a Côtes de Bordeaux benchmark producer. True story.

  11. Château Gloria Saint Julien

    Château Gloria Saint Julien 2012

    Now £40.50

    Was £45.00


    Balanced. Firm. Smoky. Heady. Herby. Fruit-forward. Subtle. These are just words. Or are they? What is a word? Can a word ever sum up the life and soul and art of the winemaking process? With a wine like Château Gloria, words feel hollow. So we ask you, look not at the word, but through the word. Be at one with this wine. Relax. Light some candles. Now you are ready.

  12. Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepère Rosé 2014

    Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepere Rosé 2016

    Now £10.35

    Was £11.50


    This wine is a serendipitous find for Oddbins and a lovely drop it is too. It is the sister wine to Château Guilhem Cuvée Prestige Rouge, which was suggested to us via The Listing (where you can recommend wines for us to stock that you have discovered on holiday). Where the Prestige Rouge is full-on and chocolatey, the rosé is a delicate flower, with aromas of rose hip, wild strawberries and white peaches. Made entirely organically, this is an all-natural discovery. Happy days.

  13. Chateau Jalousie 2015

    Château Jalousie 2015 - Half Bottle - 375ml



    Château Jalousie have just gone straight to the to the top of our popularity list for lightening up our day with the following food matching advice for their delightful half wine bottle of Claret: "Something juicy and relatively dead would be best." It's good to see there are some funny glands that are alive and kicking in Bordeaux. Just sayin'.

  14. Chateau Leoville Barton 2011

    Château Léoville Barton 2011

    Now £76.50

    Was £85.00


    This vintage wine is a beautifully purple in colour, reflecting the high grape maturity of this red wine. It is an amazingly fresh wine with balsamic and dried citrus aromas.

  15. Chateau La Garde Pessac 2007 - Magnum

    Château La Garde Pessac 2007 - Magnum



    This red wine has the musician Tom Waits written all over it. Apparently, some of his instruments enjoy a nice claret (See above to the musical choice bit) so a magnum size would be perfect. This is a brooding Bordeaux drenched in black currant, blueberry flavours, fine-grained tannins and a brush of tobacco. Intense, expressive and offset by a gentle elegance- just like Mr. Wait's words. This wine's grapes are grown in the gravelly soils of Pessac-Léognan. Otherwise knowns as 'Graves'. Which again suits Tom's deep, gritty sonorous voice... or sometimes his song's subject matter. If Wait's isn't present to entertain, we'd recommend sampling this red, listening to Rain Dogs or Bone Machine and getting creatively cognitive with friends (trying hard not to use the word 'arty').

  16. Chateau La Pierriere Cotes de Castillon Bordeaux 2014 - Magnum

    Château La Pierriere Cotes de Castillon Bordeaux 2014 - Magnum



    This winery would fit in very well in Game of Thrones, perhaps if it was imagined by George RR Martin this wine could have been made by Runceford Redwyne, Lord of the Arbor. Was that reference too esoteric? Apologies, we'll keep it to dire wolves and cold zombies from here on in. You see, Chateau Pierriere is a castle surrounded by moats dug into the rock that could probably compete with Winterfell for its protective capabilities. Thus, this wine with intense blackcurrant and raspberry flavours balanced with silky tannins can be enjoyed safe in the knowledge, Ramsey Bolton, Cersei Lannister or the Night King himself can't get at you.

  17. Château Lalene Cuvée Prestige

    Château Lalene Cuvée Prestige 2015



    The Lalene is an elegant and complex wine rich with flavours of black fruit and fine grained velvety tannins, before a long satisfying finish.

  18. Château Les Nauds Red Wine

    Château Les Nauds 2016



    Oh spare us the "better when it was rough-and-ready" nostalgia. We remember city centres where, once upon a time, it was frankly dangerous to go out if you were a bit of a misfit. At one time, even the south-west of Bordeaux used to have stretches of mean and derelict vineland that might, if they liked the look of you, let you have a tiny amount of rough white wine.

    So hats off to the Cardarelli family for their huge and continuing investment in bringing 280 hectares of such land into the 21st century and spinning straw into gold. Now you're more than welcome to enjoy their invitingly accessible fruit-packed red wines, even if you're a punk rocker!

  19. Chateau Meyney Saint-Estephe

    Château Meyney St Estephe 2010



    It's starting to feel like 2010 was quite a long time ago; David Cameron got his first shot at Prime Ministerhood, boy has he done some stuff since then. Will and Kate got engaged; not only have they got married they also made 2 more royal humans and counting! What else, O Tiger Woods was still good at golf, yeah you feel old now don't you? 2010 was a rather significant year for the world of wine, as one of the great Bordeaux vintages was produced. Not only does this wine have the virtue of being from that honourable year but now it's got all that history bottled in it. Go on, take yourself back to 2010; it was a simpler time.

  20. Château Moulins de Citran Haut-Medoc 2010

    Château Moulins de Citran Haut-Medoc 2010

    Now £17.60

    Was £22.00


    Chateau Citran say of their old and noble house "as soon as you pass the porch, you can feel calm and harmony all over. Everything is gentleness, culture and refinement. This is the message the peacocks seem to give us while frolicking in the park of the Château..." It certainly does sound peaceful, except for the peacocks, they're so big for their boots; peacocks, they do have the propensity to put you on edge. What do they want with all their tail-feathers? At least the wine will ease the nerves; voluptuous aromas of blackcurrant, mint and cigar box are sure to inspire calm, even if you are in a garden of squawking peacocks.

  21. Chateau Peyrabon Haut-Medoc Red Wine

    Château Peyrabon Haut-Medoc 2002

    Now £14.80

    Was £18.50


    A bit like Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson during his WWE days - a big, round and powerful palate with plenty of grip. But you won't need to wrestle with this classic red from the Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux. It has delicate raspberry, subtle oak and possesses some bottle maturity, which has toned down the fruit and retained the muscle. A rock steady Cabernet Merlot blend that'll take hold and won't let you go until you call out for mummy. Sorry about that Dwayne...

  22. Château Sissan Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux 2015

    Château Sissan Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux 2016



    Don't just reserve your decanter for special occasions; nearly all wines will benefit from the special treatment. However, if decanters just aren't your thing, then pour the entire contents of this bottle into an airy jug and back into the bottle again before serving.

    This is a complex wine of great depth for the price, and this small touch will release the beautiful array of tantalizing aromas. Dark, medium-bodied, round and seductively fruity, this gets better with every breath.

  23. Chateau Teyssier Montagne Saint-Emilion Red Wine France

    Château Teyssier Montagne Saint-Emilion 2008



    Have you seen the film Searching for Sugarman? If not, then we recommend you do; it's a masterpiece, but it means this tasting note won't make much sense. If you have seen it, then Château Teyssier from Montagne-Saint-Émilion is the Rodriguez of wine: sweetly melodious and timelessly classic with a compelling history and an enthralling finish. Like Rodriguez, who managed to pass most of the world by despite his brilliant, Montagne Saint-Emilion is somewhat overshadowed by its more famous neighbour, Saint-Emilion, but we think it's about time for its big-screen debut.

  24. Château Teyssier Puisseguin-Saint-Émillion 2014

    Château Teyssier Puisseguin-Saint-Émillion 2014



    We reckon this wine ticks what we consider to be two pretty major boxes: Firstly, it's tasty: it speaks eloquently of the Puisseguin Saint-Émilion terroir and is supple, well-structured, with impressive length and surprising fruitiness.

    Secondly it's cracking value: at £13.00 it is a come-hither Claret that won't break the bank. You could plonk this on any dinner table, happy in the knowledge that they'll love it and you're not skint.

  25. Chateau Le Vieux Fort Cru Bourgeois 2013

    Chateau Le Vieux Fort Cru Bourgeois 2013

    Now £10.88

    Was £14.50


    Like the Rebel Alliance in the stupendously popular Star Wars films, this wine is part of the renegade, Cru Bourgeois. A category in Haut-Médoc that rails against the tyrannical 1855 quality classifications of Bordeaux.

    This wine's robust blackcurrant fruits, rounded body, rounded 'chewy' tannins. (cue Chewbacca's mighty roar), and subtle mint finish takes a Han Solo blast at Darth Vader and his hapless 'couldn't-hit-a-barn' crap shot croonies. Poor old Stormtroopers! You should join the Cru Bourgeois side of the Force.

  26. Chianti Sogatia Italy Red Wine

    Chianti Sogatia 2014



    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.

  27. Cigarra Rosé Wine Portugal

    Cigarra Rosé 2016



    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.

  28. Diane de Belgrave Haut-Médoc 2011

    Diane de Belgrave Haut-Médoc 2011



    A classic Bordeaux from fifth growth Château Belgrave in Haut-Médoc. A wine of depth, class and smoothness that really sings with rich fruit when decanted.

    This is the kind of wine your parents used to let you have a sip of at Christmas - austere but profound and full of the forbidden promise of adulthood. Open at a triumphant celebration of victory, or at the weekend.

    Medium-bodied, deeply complex, supple and rounded with a confident touch of wood on the finish.

  29. Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Argentina Red Wine

    Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon 2014



    This Cabernet Sauvignon was created in the lofty heights of the Cafayate Valley in the remote Salta region of Argentina. Sounds like a good location for a secret base for a league of superheroes. Lucky for us the two brothers who made this red are not muscle bound meat heads with loads of gadgets and outlandish wardrobes.

    Rafael and Osvaldo Domingo are our kind of heroes- taking grapes and shaping them into amazing wine. Rippling with raspberries, cocoa, and spices. This is the kinda full-bodied wine that'll land on your balcony dressed in red with a masterplan to save the world, fix everything in town and make sure you're safely tucked in bed before midnight.

  30. Longview 'Red Bucket' Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Longview 'Red Bucket' Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Now £10.20

    Was £12.00


    ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015*

    Founded by brothers Peter and Mark Saturno, after they tired of city life in The Big Apple and decided to return home to their homeland of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills, Australia. Whilst we are happy that they were able to retreat from the frenetic pace of New York, we’re also very pleased that they started making wine in this idyllic spot.

    Macclesfield is a tad warmer than the rest of the cool climate region of Adelaide, and this means that the Saturno brothers are able to produce wines with great depth and intensity, as well as the finesse and poise, like this rich, raspberry and game-flavoured belter. A rather nice homecoming, we say.

  31. Longview Devil's Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon

    Longview Devil's Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon 2012



    Bolt the doors and check under the stairs, for we have a spine-chilling tale to tell about the Devil's Elbow. Naaaat. This wine is only named after a hairy bit of road near the Longview Estate, not after the Dark Lord himself!

    But dark and powerful this wine certainly is... aged for 20 months in French oak and made from grapes solely grown on the estate, which has a slightly warmer microclimate that suits Cabernet Sauvignon, this has beautiful blackcurrant, clove, mint and toast characters. You might want to bolt the door just to keep it to yourself, TBH.

  32. Luzon Crianza Seleccion Red Wine Spain

    Luzón Crianza Selección 2014



    They say whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger and, for Jumilla, which was one of the last wine regions to be affected by the phylloxera bug that wiped out vineyards across Europe, that is certainly the case. After getting hit in 1989, it picked itself up, planted a heap of the native Monastrell grape and went on to become a modern, exciting region.

    Bodegas Luzón, founded in 2000, is one such winery and their Crianza is an intense (owing primarily to the low yields) wine with balsamic, rosemary and liquorice hints. Pair with a goat stew and you'll feel like you've got a second wind, too.

  33. Man O' War Ironclad

    Man O' War Ironclad 2010



    With a name like Man O' War Ironclad, you'd be forgiven if you reached for the nearest potential weapon and ran to a strategic position whilst calling for back up. But we would advise against that. We would advise you to raise a white flag and surrender yourself to this sublime piece of artistry (see what we did there).

    A blend of Bordeaux grape varieties from no less than 45 different plots, which are all handled separately in the winery to maximise their individual potential before being blended, Ironclad has huge complexity of blue and black fruits, crushed stone, chalk and wild thyme.

    The palate is very concentrated with a supple texture and a streak of minerality on the finish. Needless to say, this powerful wine will strive from victory to victory for at least a decade.

  34. Marvelous Blue 2015 Red Wine

    Marvelous Blue 2015

    Now £8.78

    Was £9.75


    A saxophone in a lonely back street. An early morning trumpet fanfare. A piano tinkling in a shadowy bar. There's something pure in those sounds. Unapologetic. But music is about connection. Bringing things together. While they might be able to hold their own, there's always the sense an instrument playing alone is calling out for friends.

    And so! Grapes. Brilliant stand alone performers, unashamed. But now and again, don't you feel, they just want to join the band? If it wasn't what they wanted, it's unlikely this reunion of classic Bordeaux varieties would hit such high notes. Blueberry, cassis, tobacco, cedar. Ah one, two, ah one two three four...

  35. Miles Mossup 'Max'

    Miles Mossop 'Max' Bordeaux Blend 2014



    You know how Bordeaux is a bit tweed jacket, red trousers, brogues and hunting? Maybe that's a little unfair, but it's certainly on the stuffier side. Well what would happen if you moved it to South Africa, gave it a dose of proper sunshine, maybe taught it to surf and then changed its name to something edgy like Max? That would be pretty cool wouldn't it? Well that's exactly what Miles Mossop, the winemaker from Tokara, has done. This is a stunning wine, with flavours of dark cherries, charcuterie and Christmas cake, and great value. Such great value, in fact, we think they may have relaxed a little too much.

  36. Ormadei Assemblage 2015

    Ormadei Assemblage 2015



    If grapes were the Royal Family of Argentina, then no doubt the bold, brambly Malbec would be the hirsute, jolly King. But, much like the British Royals, this family has stars that are also very popular with the people (ahem, Harry and Kate), including Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec, which are more usually found in Bordeaux.

    Just like Old King Malbec, which also started off in Bordeaux, they are thriving in Argentina's Uco Valley. This example is an affordable twist on this Bordeaux blend, with a voluptuous texture, dark forest fruits and sweet baking spice.

  37. Perez Cruz Waiki Cabernet Chilean Wine

    Pérez Cruz Waiki Cabernet 2014



    This wine takes its name from a curious custom in the Maipo Andes, in which new brides must go to the river, catch a fish and whisper "Wakey Wakey", before letting it go about its day.

    But this doesn't tell you much about the wine, so we'll help out: it has ripe red fruits, black pepper and vanilla flavours, underpinned by fresh aromas of tarragon and laurel. We don't know about fish, but we do know about red wine. This is one that's guaranteed to wake up your taste buds.

  38. Paseo Red Portugal Red Wine

    Paseo Red 2015



    Like the bit in Beetlejuice when the eponymous, messed-up protagonist puts a spell on his visitors, making them sing Day O (The Banana Boat Song) against their will, whatever you're doing, Paseo Red Wine is sure to fill you with Harry Belafonte-esque feelings of elation. Partly because of the marvellous price, but mostly because of the vibrant, sweet cherry and cedar wood-flavoured, critically acclaimed wine itself. Altogether now, "Day O! Me say day, me say day, me say day."

  39. Paul Roos Die Filantroop 2015 South Africa Red Wine

    Paul Roos Die Filantroop 2015



    Some people feel power from bending others to their will. Not Gus. For Gus, it's all about empowering individuals to express themselves on their own terms, and on terms that bring the best from others. It's little wonder, then, that he brings this philosophy to his wines.

    It's not about forcing character from a variety, but suggesting a little direction now and then. And what better way to broaden the character than to interact? Let the supple humour of one soften the seriousness of another; one's firm determination support another's vibrancy. Altogether quite a team. And to ensure they really perform to their potential, only 3,000 bottles are made each year.

  40. Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2013

    Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 2013

    Now £40.50

    Was £45.00


    We've fallen a little head-over-heels in love with the Penfolds Bin 389...

    This dark horse seduces your senses with aromas of dark fruits, vanilla, cinnamon and even a hint of chocolate! Enticing flavours of fruit and spices make it simply irresistible. Not to mention the juicy and succulent tannins.

    Long, lingering and ludicrously luscious. A special wine that's perfect for sharing with that special someone.

  41. Penfolds Grange 2012

    Penfolds Grange 2012



    Penfolds Grange instantly expresses its exuberance from the moment that the dense and dark liquid hits the glass.

    Offering its drinker a multitude of sweet and savoury aromas, Grange first tempts the nose with black olives, liquorice and a hint of soy. These are quickly followed by wafts of tiramisu, mascarpone and zabaglione before notes of freshly roasted hazelnut and ground coffee beans are introduced.

    This fresh and refined tipple demonstrates big and bright flavours of red liquorice, gravy reduction and black olive tapenade to mention but a few! Irresistibly deep, Grange is abundant with red fruits and the weighty wine is encrusted with dusty, softened tannins.

    Penfolds argue that Grange is Australia's most celebrated wine. A bold claim, but for a beautifully bold wine. And we can see exactly what all the fuss is about.

  42. Red Boar Bobal Spanish Red Wine

    Red Boar Bobal 2015



    *SNORT. GRUNT ... WOBBLY CANTER* Where are they? Where 'ave those berries gone? AH. There they are. *NOM NOM NOM* ... Meet Red Boar. He's a lively, happy-go-lucky boar from Galicia who boasts strong, earthy, berry and vegetal aromas, has a stout structure and is very likeable.

    Although it absolutely loves truffles, Red Boar wine is more of an everyday kind of character and would be more than content with something simple, rustled up midweek. *OINK*

  43. Ridge Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

    Ridge Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon 2011



    Now we don't want to start a bar room brawl and we are massive fans of French wine, but the British do love an underdog and the story of Ridge's Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon appeals to our sensibilities.

    The 1971 vintage was one of the Californian wines that beat its French opponents in 1976's Judgement of Paris blind tasting, which upset the apple cart somewhat over the Channel and cemented California's reputation for being world-class winemakers. The cool 2011 season turned out a pristine vintage of Monte Bello, made from Cabernet Sauvignon.

  44. Scala Dei Garnatxa 2015

    Scala Dei Garnatxa 2016



    Scala Dei is less of a wine and more of a mystical treasure out of Indiana Jones. Scala Dei ('Ladder to God') was the Priorat monastery where, in the 12th century, the newly established order of Carthusian Monks first planted vines.

    After eight centuries of lying fallow, Priorat was revived by some winemaking visionaries in the 1990s who recognised the potential of the steep terraces and licorella soil, which lends Priorat wines their famously mineral undertones.

    The low yielding vines of this small (60ha) site produce a limited number of boutique wines with exceptional complexity and fruit expression, which marries beautifully with the classic mineral streak.

  45. The Chocolate Block Magnum Red Wine

    The Chocolate Block - Magnum 2016




    As soon as Chocolate Block lands you guys go all Augustus Gloop on us: lapping up that chocolate river like a cacao shortage has just been announced. Well, we can't blame you, it is awesome.

    Willy Wonka went to great lengths to produce Magic Hand-Fudge, which "when you hold it in your hand, you taste it in your mouth". To be honest Boekenhoutskloof make it look easy, we can literally taste the Chocolate Block as soon as we start unloading it from the trucks.

  46. The Chocolate Block 2015 Red Wine

    The Chocolate Block 2016



    As soon as Chocolate Block lands you guys go all Augustus Gloop on us: lapping up that chocolate river like a cacao shortage has just been announced. Well, we can't blame you, it is awesome.

    Willy Wonka went to great lengths to produce Magic Hand-Fudge, which "when you hold it in your hand, you taste it in your mouth". To be honest Boekenhoutskloof make it look easy, we can literally taste the Chocolate Block as soon as we start unloading it from the trucks.

  47. Vinum Cabernet Sauvignon

    Vinum Cabernet Sauvignon 2014



    If there is one time of year when anything goes, this is it. In fact it's almost as if pushing the rules is actually encouraged - hooray! When else is it okay to rock scandalous shreds of clothes, trowel on the black eye liner, throw the sugar quota out of the window and encourage e-number-fuelled youths to run around the streets and light rockets in the garden?

    If you'd rather celebrate your inner ghoul with a potent red wine, wrap your taste buds around this distinctively delicious Cabernet Sauvignon, which is oozing with layers of juicy blueberry, roast coffee beans and cigar box warmth.

    It all started when Captain James Cook and Sir Joseph Banks were given a "secret mission" by the British government to seek out the "great Southern continent". They took on this "mission" and stumbled upon a wild rock formation, bountiful with birdlife, plants and rich soils blessed by the sun and rivulets of water. Absolute ideal winemaking conditions some might say.

    Hang, the British government send these chaps across the world on ostensibly, a "scientific expedition" and they just so happened to stumble upon a land perfect for winemaking? Pah! They knew what they were doing.

    They knew that this "discovery" would one day equip the world with a dark red wine with a vibrant nose of cassis, violets, boysenberry and the finest toasted oak. They knew that a richness of fruit would emerge on first taste followed by a beautifully integrated oak and fine dusty tannin creating a long and delicious finish.

    I bet they also want us to think that a "boysenberry" is a real fruit...
