  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. Boer & Brit The General South African Red Wine 2014

    Boer & Brit The General 2014

    £12.50

    £12.50

    An unorthodox Bordeaux blend, minus the Cabernet Sauvignon. This generous, full bodied red wine has been produced using the Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot with a touch of Merlot. Hedgerow fruits, blue berries and spice notes are intensified by velvet tannins and a touch of oak.

    We love Hannah Leadbeater. Upon being asked to write a tasting note for the wine that she discovered and fell in love with on holiday four years ago, she gathered the same friends that she's holidayed with and they sat around together, coming up with the following tasting note between them. Talk about team work!

    Here is that (very accurate, in our opinion) note on this Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec blend from the Languedoc:
    'This wine is packed full of character. The aroma is of red berries, cinnamon and vanilla. These flavours combine on the tongue with a slight pepperiness and a rounded mouth-feel. It is medium-bodied, delivering a great taste whilst being fresh on the palate. It has a long finish, making it great for savouring on its own. It also goes well with red meats, stews or lashings of French cheese!'
  4. Chateau Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur

    Château Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    The Chateau 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Chatons du Cèdre 2014 (Red Wine)

    Chatons du Cèdre 2014

    £10.75

    £10.75

    Winemaker Pascal Léon Verhaeghe is a man who fell back in love with wine, after inheriting his family's mixed-culture estate in Cahors. After an encounter with his friend Jean-Marie Guffens (who comes from Pascal's family's native Flanders, and who makes our Verget wines) he went off to do a degree in oenology and generally get skilled-up.

    He came back to his family's vineyards and proceeded to work sympathetically with the land (the vineyards are certified organic) and has low yields and a large, attentive vineyard team.

    Chaton du Cèdre is fantastically black, with liquorice, red cherry and leather notes, and a rounded palate. We're so glad he rediscovered his roots.
  7. Ventus Red Wine 2014

    Del Fin Del Mundo Ventus Red 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    The sound of splitting timber and crashing rock. The terrifying din of screaming animals. Such was the apocalyptic cacophony that woke inhabitants of Neuquén some years ago, racking them with horror, certain as they were it was Del Fin Del Mundo: the End of the World.

    Actually, it was just Manuello. For months he'd suffered terrible dyspepsia. All that rich food, those heaps of good Argentinian beef. When the indigestion finally gave, the resulting 'Ventus', or wind, was brief, but astonishing. Fearing lest Manuello placed himself and the locals in such predicament again, a local doctor prescribed him a soft, youthful, unoaked red to combat the complaint. It is available today, to all.
  8. Domaine Joel Delaunay Touraine Chenonceaux Rouge 2014 French Red Wine

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

    £16.00

    £16.00

    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.
  9. Domingo Molina Malbec 2012

    Domingo Molina Malbec 2014

    £18.00

    £18.00

    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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Le Malbec Rose Wine 2012 Vintage France

    Le Malbec Rosé 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    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.
  13. Man O' War

    Man O' War Cabernet Franc/Merlot/Malbec 2011

    £19.00

    £19.00

    Waiheke Island, off the coast of Auckland, has some of New Zealand’s most northerly wineries. You’d think that would make it a tad too tropical for Bordeaux-inspired winemaking, being flanked by the Southern Ocean, the South Pacific and the Tasmanian Sea, it is breezy to say the least.

    In the case of this Merlot/Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, which is vinified in 25 separate batches under the expert watch of winemaker Duncan McTavish, this unique climate has resulted in a beautiful wine with lifted aromas of crushed red berries and darker cassis, with hints of coffee, liquorice, clove, Mediterranean herbs and cedar.
  14. Marvelous Blue 2015 Red Wine

    Marvelous Blue 2015

    £9.75

    £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...
  15. Ormadei Malbec 2016

    Ormadei Malbec 2016

    £12.75

    £12.75

    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.
  16. Picada 15 Malbec 2016 Argentina Red Wine

    Picada 15 Malbec 2016

    £10.75

    £10.75

    A Picada is both the name of a traditional Argentine platter of meat, cheeses and pickled vegetables, but it is also the name of a dusty road that runs through the mountains of Patagonia. Perhaps a Picada was the only meal that was suitable to eat whilst walking along kicking up dust in the mountains. Well, anyway, with a bit of luck you won't be washing a mouth full of dust down while enjoying this approachable Malbec, and will be able to enjoy its soft and fine tannins with a tasty Picada from in the comfort of your own home.
  17. Pora Py'a de Argentina Malbec Red Wine

    Pora Py'ã de Argentina Malbec 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    You've splashed out on a couple of juicy rib-eye steaks for a mid-week treat, and now you're after a wine to do them justice, but still at a midweek price. Well, look no further. They certainly know a thing or two about a juicy steak in Argentina, and it's no accident that Malbec, which pairs beautifully with steak, is their signature grape.

    With Pora Py'ã you not only get all the big hitting fruit and peppery spice you'd expect of an Argentine Malbec, but it comes at a price you probably wouldn't.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Viu Manent Vibo Centenario 2013

    Viu Manent Vibo Centenario 2013

    £17.00

    £17.00

    When shock rocker Marylin Manson penned his famous cookbook 'Burning Buns for Beezlebub' he must have been sipping on this richly, dark red. Intense blackcurrant fruit, haunted forest berries and a shadow of mint. Full bodied with a hint of purple velvet jackets and black leather boots... Thankfully, there's no forlornly, frozen forests here. The wine is from the Colchagua, Chile. A bright and sunny place for Mr. Manson and Professor Alice Cooper to sample and discuss this wine's potent assembly of Cabernet, Malbec and Petit Verdot. BTW Those are grapes- not band members.
  21. Wild Rock Hawkes Bay Red 2014 Red Wine

    Wild Rock Hawkes Bay Red 2014

    £15.50

    £15.50

    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...
