  1. Aymura Pinot Noir Chilean Red Wine 2013

    Aymura Pinot Noir 2015

    £15.00

    £15.00

    It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible black... Well, don't come crying to us, Dylan Thomas; if you were after stars you should have gone to Chile's Elqui Valley, 250 miles north of Santiago.

    This is not only home to Viña Mayu, whence cometh this Old World-style of Pinot Noir, which has beautiful gamey, farmyard-y notes alongside flavours of fresh, sweet red cherry, but the region is also an astrotourism centre, with at least eight internationally-renowned observatories.

    Their extremely hot days and near-freezing nights offer some of Chile's most exciting winegrowing conditions, and it has attracted an increasing number of adventurous winemakers over the past fifteen years or so. Bet you don't get that in Llareggub!

  2. Beaujolais Selection Parcellaire 2015

    Beaujolais Selection Parcellaire 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    From a region that cannot and will not be ignored, this Beaujolais...hang on a minute, don't be like that. Stick around, you'll thank us.

    As we were. This Beaujolais "Selection Parcellaire" offers a refreshing and fleshy palate with a subtle yet full-body featuring red fruit flavours. The nose is both fine and intense with floral notes of violet and peony, enhanced by the fruitiness that is characteristic of Gamay. The finish is long, refreshing and ends on a fruity note. This is a real breath of fresh air from Beaujolais. Serve slightly chilled and you'll see how 'Gamay-zing' this wine really is!

  3. Bourgogne Rouge Posanges 2015

    Bourgogne Rouge Posanges 2015

    £15.00

    £15.00

    One of Burgundy's charms is it's so difficult to get right, it's an unforgiving climate and Pinot Noir is a fragile heart. It's a bit like Stephen Fry, on his day he's elegant, nuanced and scintillatingly expressive. Yet, you get the impression if things didn't quite go the way it was supposed to, you could quite easily discover him hiding in the cloakroom of your sister's wedding. Thankfully, the gents at Remoissenet Père et Fils know how to take care of the gentle. The wine orates eloquent notes of crunchy red berries, toasted cedar and mushroom. A beautiful wine; it's clear if you're in need of some care turn to Remoissenet.

  4. Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir 2014 Marlborough Red Wine

    Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir 2014

    £29.00

    £29.00

    For a long time the world looked at those crazy Kiwis and thought "boy, these guys are charismatic but what do they actually do down there? Other than angry dances before rugby, the kiwi bird but not the fruit and Russel Crowe movies, what makes them tick?" No one asks that anymore, not since 1985 when David Hohnen started growing vines in Marlborough. We know what New Zealand is about now, it's making maddeningly delicious wine. Cloudy Bay lead the way to define New Zealand by refreshing Sauvignons and lip smacking Pinot Noir, like this one! Let's not pigeon hole them though, they still do loads of other great stuff, it's just now when you're hiding behind the sofa as the All Blacks Haka their way across your TV set, you can do it while enjoying a lovely glass of Marlborough Pinot Noir, Sweet as Bro!

  5. Dalrymple Pinot Noir Red Wine

    Dalrymple Pinot Noir 2013

    £29.00

    £29.00

    This wine is produced from the pinot noir grape, giving its deep garnet colour. On the nose it has lifted ripe black plum aroma, hints of wild blackberry and raspberry beneath highlights of fine spices derived from the gentle grained French oak.

    On the palate immediate appeal with sweetness of ripe fruits, fine fruit tannins that balance the oak to provide structure right through to the smooth lingering finish.

  6. Domaine de Bellene Bourgogne Rouge Maison Dieu 2013

    Domaine de Bellene Bourgogne Rouge Maison Dieu 2013

    £19.00

    £19.00

    When is organic wine not organic? Well, when you're too ethical to be organic of course! Wait what, isn't that like being too millennial to eat avocado? That's exactly what the guys at Domaine de Bellene have been going through. Like John Lennon sending his MBE back to the palace in a cab, Domaine de Bellene voluntarily left the certification. This was due to there being no alternative to pyrethrum in treatment against leafhopper. They felt pyrethrum was not selective enough; causing harm to all sorts of useful critters. Thus, they make fantastic Pinots with an organic philosophy but without the sticker on the back. Well done guys, making ecological choices is a reward in itself!

  7. Domaine de Coudoulet Pinot Noir 2015

    Domaine de Coudoulet Pinot Noir 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Sometimes wine makers of yore would blame a poor crop yield on the Harrowingly Hairy Harvest Hobgoblin. The story goes that this horrid creature would send a plague of sickenss and lethargy amongst the vineyard labourers in the early hours of morn.

    Luckily with the modern technology of today Oddbins Science Dept has disproved this existance of these grape gremlins and led to the scientific study of the Hang Over. Maybe if these workers were moderately drinking this beautifully light fruity red wine they wouldn't feel the need to concoct these nasty gnomes of ficitional folk lore.

    No goblins were harmed in the making or drinking of this wine. Some facts(if any), have been somewhat playfully distorted.

  8. Famille Cattin Pinot Noir

    Famille Cattin Pinot Noir 2014

    £14.25

    £14.25

    Let us set the scene: there's a family relay race that spans across hundreds of years. Each member of the Cattin family hurtles their way through acres of countryside and narrowly weaves between the vineyards, determined to hand on the baton. But as they approach the finish line and their hands connect, they exchange not a thin shaped piece of metal but a deliciously vibrant bottle of Pinot Noir. Behold... the Voegtlinshoffen Games! With luscious red fruit aromas and soft tannins, we advise you to sprint to one of our shops and keep the baton going.

  9. Frunza Pinot Noir Romanian Red Wine

    Frunza Pinot Noir 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    A Pinot Noir, at this price? From Romania? That's got to be rubbish, hasn't it? Or it's got to come with a catch. We have to admit, that's what we thought when we first got this little number in. So we cracked open a bottle straight away to prove ourselves right.

    And thank Bacchus we did: far from being rubbish, it was indeed a total bargain, and there was no catch - this is budget wine that's not just good for the money, it's just plain good. Full, rich and juicy. Down with prejudice! Up with Romanian Pinot Noir!

  10. Giesen Brothers Pinot Noir New Zealand Red Wine

    Giesen Brothers Pinot Noir 2013

    £16.50

    £16.50

    It is a brave and noble thing to travel half way around the world and set up a winery, but that is exactly what brothers Alex, Theo and Marcel Giesen did in the 1980s. Thirty years later and these intrepid brothers have not only survived the trip from Germany to New Zealand, but they have conquered. In evolutionary terms, this family is winning.

    Why are they so successful? For wines like this Pinot Noir, with its elegant, silky, tannins, lifted aromas of violet and blueberry and notes of warm, freshly turned earth and mushrooms. That's one gene pool we want to be part of.

  11. Jean-Jacques Girard Aloxe-Corton 2013 Red Wine

    Jean-Jacques Girard Aloxe-Corton 2013

    £35.00

    £35.00

    This is why you have to love Burgundy; you can say what you like about the beautiful new world Pinots of Oregon or New Zealand, but do you know when this family began making wine? 1529! Do you know what else was happening in 1529? Henry VIII was trying to negotiate his divorce from Catharine of Aragon! That's right boys and girls, this winery was formed when Henry VIII hadn't even been divorced! Never mind the beheaded, died or the divorced, beheaded, survived. Ann of Cleves was on the cover of Vogue! Greensleeves was top of the chats for the 104th straight week! If Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard can't make a good Pinot there is genuinely no hope for the rest of us. Thankfully they did, here's to 600 years of Burgundian winemakers!

  12. Jean-Jacques Girard Chorey Les Beaune 2013 Red Wine

    Jean-Jacques Girard Chorey Les Beaune 2013

    £24.00

    £24.00

    Do you not think Burgundy has too much good stuff? They've got Dijon mustard, the king of mustards! There's actual mustard seeds mixed in, so they pop in your mouth when you bite down on your mustardy baguette. They have fraggling Pinot Noir! The king of red grapes, just like this little gem; with its intense aromas of mulberry, strawberry, ripe red cherry & seductive spice. It's evident that Kings still rule in this republic... I mean Burgundy was technically a Dukedom but... you get the idea; Pinot Noir: The Duke of red wines just seems to be a disservice.

  13. Justin Girardin Santenay Clos Rousseau premier Cru 2014

    Justin Girardin Santenay Clos Rousseau Premier Cru 2014

    £25.00

    £25.00

    Twelve generations. A whole heap of winemaking knowledge. A range of fantastic wines. There's something to say for listening to your parents from time to time and we think Justin, the 13 generation of the Girardin family, would have to agree.

    Sticking with the traditions passed down to him from previous generations, young Justin has produced a fine wine filled with ripe, red fruit and soft, smooth tannins. It's one for sitting down with the family and savouring the moment.

  14. Kuru Kuru Pinot Noir

    Kuru Kuru Pinot Noir 2015

    £22.00

    £22.00

    Some wines are good. Some take good to another level. This is one of the latter. It is so good that if you spilt it on a white carpet, it would probably splash into a beautiful pattern that you would want to keep forever.

    In fact it would probably help old ladies across roads if it could. Clean fruit flavours and an epic depth. Please give this wine your undivided attention and all of your culinary skills, because it deserves it.

  15. La Closerie des Lys Pinot Noir 2015

    La Closerie des Lys Pinot Noir 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Some people, like Hobbits, like their homeland and see no reason to up sticks to pastures new (excepting the Bagginses, of course). Others are sprinkled with wanderlust and prefer to travel.

    The Collovray and Terrier families, for example, moved from Burgundy, where they make Pinot Noir to critical acclaim, to Limoux in SW France, where they have sniffed out another ideal terroir for the varietal - in the hot sun south of Carcassonne - where they are now making stonking, brilliant value wine.

  16. La Crema Pinot Noir 2013 Californian Red Wine

    La Crema Pinot Noir 2013

    £22.50

    £22.50

    Careful with the cork, now. Pop. And close your eyes. Warm scents of cherry pie and cocoa. Black tea from nearby cafés in avenues of plum and pomegranate. You're nearby the ocean, soft heat rising from the earth. Hear the wash of the waves. Water breaking gently into foam. Cream. Like the surface of fine coffee. La Crema, as they call it on the Sonoma Coast.

  17. La Girouette Pinot Noir 2015

    La Girouette Pinot Noir 2015

    £8.50

    £8.50

    Aged in stainless steel vats, this soft, well balanced wine from master winemaker Isabelle Pangault is sure not to dissapoint. It boasts notes of soft jammy blackberry and juicy plum along with the well integrated, creamy tannins.

  18. Lismore Pinot Noir 2016

    Lismore Pinot Noir 2016

    £28.00

    £28.00

    The grapes of these wines are grown on Hebridean soil, on the Isle of Lismore, in the middle of Loch Linnhe. O wait, that's a big fat lie; for one the Isle of Lismore has a population of 146 people and we're not sure you're even able to ripen potatoes there let alone grapes. Despite the fact this wine is a Pinot Noir from the Western Cape of South Africa, perhaps the link to Scotland is not such a bizarre one. The wine is rugged, tart, earthy and rich with woody spice; that sounds like a Scotsman alright. Surely this Pinot is destined to brighten the weather-beaten lives of the 146 on Lismore.

  19. Lothian Pinot Noir 2013 South African Red Wine

    Lothian Pinot Noir 2015

    £18.50

    £18.50

    South African reds are all dark, meaty and chewy as biltong right? Well no, not all of them. As Bob Dylan famously sang "the wines they are a changin'." Either way this is something new and very, very special.

    Produced by a Scottish family, this is cool-climate Burgundian elegance from the southern hemisphere. Dispel those dark thoughts and turn towards the light.

  20. Maison Albert Bichot 'Loiseau-Bichot' Gevrey-Chambertin

    Maison Albert Bichot 'Loiseau-Bichot' Gevrey-Chambertin 2012

    £43.00

    £43.00

    If you are planning a very lovely dinner party, plan your menu around this Burgundian bombshell. It has been lovingly blended by the expert sommelier, Eric Goettelmann, from the Cote d'Or restaurant, which has forged a strong partnership with the talented producer, Domaine Albert Bichot.

    Together, they have created a wine that oozes black cherries, smoky, woodland-y fragrances, with the body and firmness you'd expect from Gevrey-Chambertin. Its dream partner? We reckon a poussin wrapped in prosciutto, served with creamed butternut squash. Do we get an invite?

  21. Manuka Springs Pinot Noir 2016 New Zealand

    Manuka Springs Pinot Noir 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Everyone agreed the old horse-drawn cart was just the vehicle to transport the Pinot grapes from vineyard to winery, but they failed to take into account the antique craftsmanship. The suspension springs were fashioned from the tough, ungiving wood of the Manuka tree, and the poor Pinot was jostled so roughly the grapes began to split. As the sun hit the broken berries, a deep aroma of warm raspberries rose from the cart and the juice began to ferment. Happily, however, the resulting wine was so elegant that to this day the first crushing is done driving the grapes round in that very same old cart.

  22. Marchand Tawse Cote De Nuits Villages French Wine

    Marchand Tawse Côte De Nuits Villages 2013

    £29.00

    £29.00

    The winemaker wiped paranoid perspiration from his forehead as he typed the final words:

    'So, I've decided to take my work back underground.. to stop it falling into the wrong hands'*

    If anyone discovered this Marchand Tawse Cotes De Nuits Villages they may use it for the wrong reasons. It's fresh red fruit flavours could bribe a high-ranking diplomat to do anything a villain wanted. A rogue state may use a whole bottle to lure unsuspecting key scientists to their next meeting -Perfect Food Pairing Whilst Designing Weapons of Mass Consumption. They might even drink some whilst eating a spicy curry- that'd be utter sacrilege. They could control thousands with this wine.

    OR THEY MIGHT TELL ODDBINS- One thing is vital, don't let Oddbins know...they'll tell everyone.

  23. Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot Burgundy Red Wine

    Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot 2011

    £110.00

    £110.00

    The source of this great wine comes from within the unique, walled vineyard of Clos Vougeot. The Cistercian monks enclosed the entire area many moons ago (work completed 1336) with a dry stone wall. Hence if a wine comes from this Grand Cru than it's from a highly defined & very limited amount of grape vine.

    About 80 folks each have a plot within the walls too. All squabbling over who makes the best wine. Thus if you get your hands on a bottle of this one, you're in for a big treat.

    Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot's version is a rich red packed with dark currants and cinnamon spices. Followed by mushroom and warm, earthy notes on the finish. It can age for up to 20 years too. Incidentally, this beautiful vineyard also has a rose named after it.

    The Chateaux Clos De Vougeot Climbing rose - named after the intensely deep red robe of this remarkable Burgundian red wine.

  24. Marchand Tawse Corton French Red Wine

    Marchand Tawse Corton Grand Cru 2013

    £65.00

    £65.00

    With a cellar potential of up to 20 years this wine must look a bit like a young Bob Dylan-expressive yet possessing huge developmental potential.

    Ok so calling this wine poetic may cause some to be violently ill! But just listen to legions and fan clubs of the grape Pinot Noir next time they don't think they're being over heard. You'll think your in a 1920s speak easy or an underground jazz club.

    If these folk had a bottle of this wine you'd never shut them up... Blue berries, red cherries, dried roses, lavender ... Pinot Noir fans are actually a pretty good bunch. (Pun intended)

  25. Marchand Tawse Gevrey 1er Burgundy Wine

    Marchand Tawse Gevrey-Chambertin "La Perriere" Premier Cru 2014

    £60.00

    £60.00

    The Marchand Tawse Gevrey is a vivacious and pure red wine. The Perrière delights the palate with notes of buckthorn and crushed limestone, swirling into a lacy texture and a bright finish.

  26. Marchand Tawse Nuits Saint Georges French Wine

    Marchand Tawse Nuits Saint Georges 2013

    £39.00

    £39.00

    Want to revisit the 60s? If this wine was transposed into a song- it'd be the Beatles 'Strawberry Fields Forever'. 'Let me take you down

    'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields

    Nothing is real

    Until you know what this wine is about

    Strawberry Fields forever

    Nuits St George forever '

  27. McManis Pinot Noir 2015

    McManis Pinot Noir 2015

    £12.75

    £12.75

    For the brilliant price tag - especially given its grape and country of origin - this wine is soft, gentle, smooth, curvaceous... Probably time to stop with that metaphor.

    Anyway we're talking hallmark Pinot Noir character here with coquettish red berry fruit and just a waft of soft vanilla. A wonderful wine to tuck into after a long week on a relaxing Friday night and a great example of Pinot Noir that's easier on the wallet without the associated risks of too much acid and not enough fruit.

  28. Nuiton Beaunoy Beaune French Red Wine

    Nuiton-Beaunoy Beaune 2013

    £24.00

    £24.00

    Imagine gliding over the Côte d'Or, taking off from the rooftops of Beaune and drifting over the undulations of Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay, dreamily contemplating the miracle of the topography beneath you and the world class wines it produces.

    Thirsty work for sure, and what more fitting reward at the end of your flight than a glass of this ripe and perfumed Pinot Noir, produced by a part-time paraglider from a Côte d'Or-covering co-operative. Despite being vegan, it would certainly thank you if you'd grabbed a duck to go with it while you were up there!

  29. Bourgogne Pinot Noir Nuiton-Beaunoy Red Wine

    Nuiton-Beaunoy Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Sometimes tasting notes can seem so far-fetched you wonder whether the writer is actually taking you for a ride. If we were to say that the intense fragrance of this lovely Pinot Noir has the perfumed cedarwood spice that might best be reminiscent of the most expensive and exclusive eau de cologne, you might just baulk at the suggestion! But it's the kind of character that sets this fragrant Burgundy wine apart and makes it Pinot with personality. A wine for flashes of personal expression.

  30. Santenay Nuiton Beaunoy

    Nuiton-Beaunoy Santenay 2015

    £21.00

    £21.00

    There's an admirable note of distinction to this fine red Santenay that's hard to pin down. While it's light and quite delicate for a Burgundy, it has a beguilingly pleasant, almost sweet-scented nutty oak character. The good folk at Nuiton-Beaunoy, who grace us regularly with their presence, are quick to point out that this is a clever combination of both Beaune terroir and some good old ageing-on-the-lees action.

  31. Pinot Pinot - Pinot Noir 2016

    Pinot Pinot - Pinot Noir 2016

    £8.00

    £8.00

    To be or Pinot to be, that is the question. Poor old Hamlet just couldn't decide what to put on the table for his annual 'Safety First Near Suspicious Looking Lakes' convention. To make matters worse, Claudius and the other members had asked for Chianti or Bordeaux. Luckily his wing man Fortinbras recommended that this amazingly silky red would indeed be an excellent choice with the lamb tagine and saved the day. In fact, it was so popular there'll pinot left for later...

  32. Radford Dale Freedom 2014

    Radford Dale Freedom 2014

    £22.00

    £22.00

    Robin Hood. Ned Kelly. Billy the Kid. Pancho Villa. ...Batman. The list goes on. Heroes of the people. But few know Radford Dale, the visionary outlaw of South Africa.

    Among his many feats, Dale is renowned for liberating a generation of wine consumers from poorly made, mass-produced plonk. Combining the guile and charm of Dick Turpin with the fury of William Wallace, Dale and his band of men sabotaged barrel upon barrel of the dreadful stuff as it left wineries, saving poor defenceless drinkers from its scourge. In testament, enjoy this Pinot. Uplifting, complex and intriguing, just like the man himself.

  33. Remoissenet Gevrey Chambertin Red Wine Pinot Noir

    Remoissenet Gevrey Chambertin 2014

    £49.00

    £49.00

    Fragrant notes of red fruit and subtle gamey aromas. The palate is muscular yet with ripe tannins and very good concentration of fruit, and an amazingly long fresh finish.

  34. Remoissenet Givry Rouge Red Wine

    Remoissenet Givry 2014

    £22.00

    £22.00

    The givry offers notes of cassis buds, red berries and spice on the nose and palate with very pure, fresh finish. The wine showcases itself as a great example of one of the less know appellations of Burgundy.

  35. Ribbonwood Pinot Noir New Zealand Red Wine

    Ribbonwood Pinot Noir 2014

    £15.50

    £15.50

    ***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Pinot Noir, as any fan of Sideways will tell you, is a tricky and temperamental grape – difficult and delicate both in the growing and the wine-making. But don’t despair, or drive your car into a tree (just try getting spare parts for a Saab these days), just twist the cap off one of these rather elegant Pinots from Marlborough.

    Made from hand-picked grapes this wine is aged in French oak to give a superb balance of summery fruits and smoky undertones. Which makes us think it might just be time to light the barbeque…

  36. Ritual Pinot Noir 2015

    Ritual Pinot Noir 2015

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Agustin thought his luck was in when he was approached by an eccentric entrepreneur and asked to produce 'as much red grape juice as he could.' The entrepreneur had 'invented' an Andean people with a view to running tours to see the ruins of their ancient civilisation. (Actually, the 'ruins' consisted of a collapsed 19th century pigsty, and some building materials left over from the construction of a swimming pool.)

    To draw the crowds, the entrepreneur spiced things up a bit, claiming the extinct tribe made human sacrifices. His aim was to re-enact these rituals (employing local thespians) and for this he needed gallons of blood red liquid. As things turned out the idea was a flop. The real Andean people had a few things to say about it. Happily, however, the grape juice didn't go to waste. Made instead into wine, it really is to die for.

  37. Robert Oatley Vineyards 'Signature Series' Pinot Noir

    Robert Oatley Vineyards Signature Series Pinot Noir 2015

    £13.50

    £13.50

    History is scattered with memorable "Larrys": there's Lawrence of Arabia, DH Lawrence, Laurence Olivier, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and then there's Larry Cherubino, chief winemaker at Robert Oatley Vineyards. His ability to coax out the most fresh, delicate, wild strawberry and cocoa-y elements of the tricky Pinot Noir grape is enough to cement his place in the Larry Hall of Fame. We salute you, Larry!

  38. Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2014

    Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2015

    Now £14.00

    Was £16.00

    £14.00

    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!

  39. Sancerre Rosé Etienne de Loury

    Sancerre Rosé Etienne de Loury 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Deceptively delicate, Etienne de Loury's Sancerre Rosé will blow you clean away with its concentrated, clean red fruits and fresh-as-a-daisy, morning dew-esque minerality.

    What was it Muhammed Ali said? 'Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee'? Well this doesn't sting like a bee, rather it does a double somersault with a half twist up to you and, instead of knocking you out, lands a delicate kiss on your forehead. Lovely.

  40. Schauer Rosé Sudsteiermark 2016 Rosé Wine

    Schauer Rosé Sudsteiermark 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Stand on the steep slopes of the Schauer vineyards and absorb the view. Breathtaking. A landscape with edges like cut crystal. But imagine 300 million years ago. An Earth in turmoil. Rock and oceans, molten minerals. A world growing into the shape we know it, suffering the agonies of adolescence.

    Of course, it would only look chaotic if you sped up millions of decades to play out like a film. But then, try this wine and you won't really get a sense of the chaotic alchemy that went into its making either. Three varieties roiling, mixing, berry fruit and spice aroma. Take a sip. Sense the swirl of time.

  41. Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas

    Viña Leyda Pinot Noir Las Brisas 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    New horizons are a wondrous thing, and the Leyda Valley is exactly that. A new valley opened up by winemakers with a touch of the prospector about them, taking risks in the hope that they might strike liquid gold!

    Well, if you have a glass or three of this, you will probably agree with us that there's gold in them thar hills and Vina Leyda are bottling it for your drinking pleasure!

  42. Viña Leyda Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    Viña Leyda Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    £10.00

    £10.00

    The Humboldt Current. What can you say? It's a Pacific Ocean current that runs along the coast of Chile that, being an upwelling current, pushes cold, nutrient-rich water from the bottom of the ocean to the top, resulting in the current's ecosystem being the most productive of its kind in the world!

    It accounts for 20% of the world's fish catches and, if that's not enough, then it brings cold, wet wind to coastal wine regions like the Leyda Valley. The resulting cool climate brings a longer ripening season, so greater quality and complexity.

    Good news indeed for this juicy, red-fruit-driven Pinot Noir, which ends up with perfectly-balanced tannin and acidity that fill the mouth with radiant succulence. Well done, Humboldt Current!

  43. Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Red Wine

    Villa Wolf Pinot Noir 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    Everyone has heard the story about the boy who cried wolf, right? Well, we don't blame the poor lad because after trying this German red wine we felt like shouting (Villa) Wolf from the rooftops too.

    We simply love this classic expression of a Pfalz Pinot Noir, which owes its gorgeous mineral traits to the ideal mountain and river setting. With soft red fruits on the surface, but with earthy tannins and a spicy bite underneath, this is definitely a wolf in sheep's clothing (see what we did there?)

  44. Weingut Gaul Spatburgunder Pfalz

    Weingut Gaul Spatburgunder Pfalz 2015

    So, your family takes over a vineyard when you're a kid, you can't move for wine in your house, and your parents send you away first to work in vineyards and then to a special wine university. You'd be forgiven if your next steps were to ditch the family, move into a squat in Amsterdam and go on a journey of self-empowerment with money your dad had given you.

    Karoline and Dorothee Gaul had just that childhood, but they decided that winemaking was far better than squatting, and embarked upon a journey of vinous discovery with a winery their family had given them. And they make uniformly stunning wines, like this elegantly-structured, cherry and blackberry charmer. Power to the sisters!

  45. Wageck Fundament Spätburgunder 2013 German Red Wine

    Weingut Wageck Fundament Spätburgunder 2013

    £13.00

    Herr Wageck was one of the more notable residents of Pfalz. A lovely man. But with the heaviest, thickest eyebrows ever. So heavy, in fact, they began to weigh down his forehead, until they literally drooped over his eyes. This was no good! Wageck couldn't see his beloved, stick-thin wife.

    His neighbours set to solving the problem. Barbers failed. Gardeners failed. Lumberjacks gave up. No matter how often the bushy protuberances were cut, they simply grew back thicker. In the end, Wageck turned to the winery to see if they could help. They fashioned a Pinot Noir as pleasant and rounded as him, of such surprising persistence just one sip had him raising his eyebrows! Problem solved.

    Wild Rock Pinot Noir 2014

    New Zealand; of course, first discovered by fine English gentlemen Captain James Cook and Sir Joseph Banks. Corrr that's a long flight ay? What, must be 26 hours if you get lucky with the stop overs? Bet they could've murdered a glass of Pinot. Unfortunately, on arrival they did not find Pinot Noir. Other than of course finding a snot nosed Frodo Baggins announcing; "you're late." To which they replied "an Englishmen is never late, he arrives precisely when he means to!" They also found a bountiful land of birdlife and plants, thus the Wild Rock label pays homage to Cook & Banks' botanical chronicling.

    While he does have a great singing voice, 'Bill' Cole perhaps doesn't have the best of memories. Waking to his rich tenor, sounding through the morning fog, locals have come to know which vines the winemaker is serenading by the tune he's singing.

    When they hear the dulcet strains of "Oh, my darling, oh my darling..." they know it's the Pinot Noir, and they're certain the silky, complex nuances of Bill's voice find their way into the grapes. They just don't have the heart to tell him it's Clementine, not Columbine...

  48. Yardstick Pinot Noir 2015 Red Wine

    Yardstick Pinot Noir 2015

    £14.75

    If there is one thing we love more than anachronistic units of measurement, here at Oddbins, it's a good origin story. In 2009, through a conversation with a friend, winemaker Adam Mason realised far too many South African Pinots were overripe, over-extracted and over-oaked, he concluded something had to be done. Focusing on high altitude sights and picking earlier Adam has maintained a wonderful freshness and purity of fruit in his Pinot. The wine has expressive notes of bramble and red cherries harmonising perfectly with savoury, earthy, minerally notes. Truly divine and we'd say a couple of furlongs ahead of the rest.
