  1. Borghetto Chianti Riserva Italian Red Wine

    Borghetto Chianti Riserva 2013

    £10.50

    £10.50

    It was that old cad, Hannibal Lector, who told Clarice that he 'ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti' in The Silence of the Lambs. So we suggest that a far more reasonable food match for this velvety, cherry-laden, supple red wine would be a simple tomato and fresh basil spaghetti dish. Lovely.

    What we're saying is, stick to a vegetarian dish, because Hannibal has kinda ruined meat matches with Chianti. The cad.
  2. Bodegas Luis Alegre Finca La Reñana 2013 vintage

    Luis Alegre Finca La Reñana 2014

    £18.50

    £18.50

    Sometimes you just can't muck about. The front page for this wine has simply to state that it is stunning. White Rioja used to be a big, occasionally confused, oaky beast of a wine. This barrel-fermented behemoth isn't shy either, but it's cleaner and more Burgundian in style.

    Plenty of fresh fruit - apple and pear, drizzled with citrus - floats on creamy oak and gorgeous vanilla custard, and the whole kaboodle lingers for even longer than it took to type that description.

    A gleaming example of a modern Spanish winery that has taken charge of every aspect of its winemaking.
  3. Luis Alegre Rioja Blanco Viura Spanish White Wine

    Luis Alegre Unoaked Viura Blanco 2016

    £9.50

    £9.50

    And yet another wholly distinctive white from Spain. Such is the diversity and variety available you're unlikely to find wines like them elsewhere.

    If you're one of those who've become just a little too familiar with the likes of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, then Spain might be the next destination for you. The Viura grape here goes to make a distinctly different yet hugely enjoyable, aromatic white Rioja.
  4. Madeira Barbeito Malvasia Reserva

    Madeira Barbeito Malvasia Reserva

    £15.00

    £15.00

    The ethos of Ricardo Diogo, the winemaker at Vinhos Barbeito, is that 'small is beautiful'. We think he is absolutely right. Take Ronnie Corbett. OK maybe 'beautiful' isn't quite the word, but he certainly knows how to make the most of what he has: Ronnie Barker's line "I look up to him [John Cleese] because he is upper class, but I look down on him [Corbett] because he is lower class", followed with Corbett saying: "I know my place", wouldn't really be the same if Corbett was of an average height. So 'be small and proud', we cry!
