  1. Becalm Malbec 2016 Red Wine

    Becalm Malbec 2016

    £12.50

    £12.50

    With its deep oceans of blueberry and black cherry fruit and bright, grippy tannins, this exclusive Malbec seems to resemble the starry skies above Argentina's Andes. Indeed, the team at Fincas Patagonicas (who are advised by Jean Claude Berrouet, formerly of Chäteau Petrus) were inspired by the story of the ancient constellation Argo Navis.

    According to the legend, this was the ship Jason and the Argonauts sailed in to retrieve the Golden Fleece and, like the delicately oaked Becalm, the image of this great wooden ship, gliding silently on an endless voyage through the southern skies, transports your thoughts far away so a sense of calm envelops you... So relax. Be Malbec. Becalm.

  2. Chateau Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur

    Château Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    The Château de Haute-Serre Grand Vin Seigneur Malbec is very dark in colour, with highlights of crimson. This exceptional red has a noteworthy balance with an intense concentration and elegant finesse demonstrating the power of a great malbec with its complexity. From opening the bottle immediately is the powerful bouquet of Morello cherry, blackcurrant and spice. The fresh and fruity nose is reflected on the palate which has a long, silky smooth after taste, typical of the vineyard.

  3. Chateau Lafleur de Haute Serre Cahors

    Château Lafleur de Haute Serre-Cahors 2015

    £13.75

    £13.75

    Chateau Lafleur de Haute-Serre is gives such pleasure to the consumer, much like a fine novel it is a wine that you want to see right through to the end. It is a powerful, well built red with lovely expressions of earthiness and black truffle on the nose. Softness and elegance dominate the palate with a wonderful balance between acidity, tannins and red fruits.

  4. Domaine Joel Delaunay Touraine Chenonceaux Rouge 2014 French Red Wine

    Domaine Joël Delaunay 'L'esprit des Dames' Touraine Chenonceaux Rouge 2014

    Now £13.60

    Was £16.00

    £13.60

    Thierry was often saddened when he saw the ladies in the winery. They looked so drab and miserable, as if their work was a chore. Surely that wasn't good for the wine. Their tired looks must affect the end result, and make it bitter and sharp.

    What's needed, thought Thierry, is some glamour. Then they'll feel much better. So he set about producing a youthful, sensuous red the ladies could rub on their cheeks. A rouge to brighten up proceedings, and bring about a blushing vibrancy. The plan worked a treat. Even if the wine didn't work for everyone as make-up, drinking it put a smile upon their face. One taste, and you can tell.

    Sometimes we wish we had more than words with which to convey our wines to you. If we could, we'd take you into a saddlery, clad you in the softest purple velvet and then crush some freshly-picked red cherries, blackberries in a pestle and mortar, add a twist of schezuan pepper and present it to you, saying "this. This is what you are buying if you buy this wine." We have to sadly accept the reality that we can't do that, but we hope you get the picture.

  6. Incienso Malbec Red Wine Argentina

    Incienso Malbec 2014

    £7.50

    £7.50

    You can do a lot with £7.50. You could buy some hair dye and go strawberry blonde. You could buy a decent quality ball point pen. Or! You could buy yourself a taste of the Argentine countryside, fresh blackberries and an oomph of hot spice from the gusty plains at the foot of the Andes. And, whilst you can't beat a high quality biro, we'd take the wine any day. Obvz.

  7. Le Malbec Red Wine France

    Le Malbec 2014

    £9.75

    £9.75

    In keeping with the cultural terminology as memorably described by Jules and Vincent in Pulp Fiction, if the French do a take on a foreign product, all they do is stick "Le" in front of it, as in "Le Big Mac". So it is with Argentina's No. 1 grape, which winemaker Boris Kovac simply calls "Le Malbec".

    Boris, we commend you. Though it must noted that this spicy, brambly, black fruit-flavoured grape actually originates in France. Don't think this is true of the Big Mac though.

  8. Le Malbec Rose Wine 2012 Vintage France

    Le Malbec Rosé 2015

    This wine is like an onion. OK it won't make you cry, and it isn't spherical (bear with us here), but... it has the pretty pink/golden colour of onion skin, layer upon layer of crisp, mildly spicy loveliness and is the cornerstone of many a successful meal.

    Don't try putting it on a wooden board and roughly chopping it à la Jamie Oliver, though; that would probably result in much pain, glass everywhere and will more than likely ruin most kitchen knives.

    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...

  10. Ormadei Assemblage 2015

    Ormadei Assemblage 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    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.

    Bang! In your face! Let's not pussyfoot around, people like Argentine Malbec for its raw, heavyweight, power; and that's what Ormadei delivers by the sackfull, but that's not all. Big hitting, yes, but rich, fruity and smooth with it. Like getting punched in the mouth by a black cherry fist in a velvet glove. In a good way.

  12. Secret de Viu Manent Malbec Red Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Malbec 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Border-hopping Malbec from the other side of the peninsula in Chile. This is very South American anyway. Small wonder Chile too are turning their hand to this, the Argie-wonder grape; not that they need to prove much when it comes to winemaking.

    This Secret (or locally, Secreto) is Malbec very much as you picture it: Full and juicy, smooth and satisfying, and with the guaranteed trademark long, long length. Wine this good won't be much of a Secret for long.

    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 on...so, 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...
