  1. Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016 German White Wine

    Anette Closheim 'Savvy' 2016

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Klaus was head-over-heels. Granted, he'd only seen Adelheid's picture, and - of course - fallen for her witty yet engaging online dating profile. But he'd truly tumbled. The last thing he was expecting was an answer to his hopeful message. And she wanted to meet! Klaus was in wonderland! The problem was he'd somewhat 'embellished' his description of himself.

    Adelheid's message revealed she was drawn to the wit, acumen, and sagacity he made much of. She was enamoured by the thought of a clever, practical man. And Klaus was far from that. Enter the fabled 'Woman of the Nahe'. Maker of potions. Just one sip of her 'Savvy' elixir and Klaus was brimming with canniness. What's more, the potion was just as elegant, lively and racy as Adelheid claimed to be. But that remained to be seen...

  2. Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Wine

    Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Blend 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    If the tiles fall correctly in a game of Scrabble, the word "Gewurztraminer" will earn you 729 points. If you run "Riesling" off the end of it, you will get a lower score but a handy 50 bonus points for using all your letters. Larry Cherubino, a man also worth a few points, has an even more winning way of putting the two together, by blending them into a refreshingly heady, exotically spicy and rose petal-tinged bottle of loveliness, that would be the perfect foil for a mild curry and a Turkish delight dessert. Or you could ditch the Scrabble and drink it while watching Countdown and waiting for a rude word to crop up!

  3. Sancerre Bougrier 2015 white wine

    Bougrier Sancerre 2016

    £16.00

    £16.00

    This wine is so fist-thumpingly fresh, so buttock-clenchingly minerally, so eye-poppingly citrusy that, if you try it, you might for a moment mistake yourself for Brian Blessed, immediately start charging around, tearfully declaring "Gordon's alive!!" to anyone who'll listen and generally make yourself known to ear drums the world over. So, if you've ever wondered what it's actually like to be Brian Blessed, this is the wine for you.

  4. Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Vintage White Wine

    Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that you have to go to the New World to get really good value in the classic French grape varieties, like sauvignon blanc. Or is it? Here's a Loire Valley sauvignon that's as crisp, fresh and grassy as a newly mowed meadow, with elegant minerality and a subtlety and restraint that's reminiscent of classic Sancerre or Pouilly Fume, at half the price. Which sounds like pretty good value to us. So set aside pride and prejudice and leave yourself open to persuasion with this classic white wine.

  5. Bougrier Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine

    Bougrier Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    The family Bougrier were, by tradition, agricultural scientists. Their incredible achievements include the invention of a device for measuring the size of potatoes before digging them up, and a method for weighing cherries on a tree before they are picked. Their dream, however, was to find a way to lock particular aromas from the beautiful Touraine countryside into a tasty grape.

    After years of experiment they succeeded. They created a grape brimming with the clean, fresh scents of springtime hedgerows. Elderflowers, young nettles and cut grass. What's more, they discovered the flavours were even more appealing when the grapes were made into wine.

  6. Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc Wine Chile

    Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    This Sauvignon just goes from strength to strength when it comes to great valued wine. Achieving an astonishing standard for the price, this white really shows true Sauvignon Blanc character.

    Carta Vieja have a brilliant knack of getting serious zeal across in both their reds, and whites like this one. This is a crisp, clean white wine with a lovely note of elderflower. Cracking party wine. Cracking everydayer. Open it up and take some time out to relax.

  7. Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc

    Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £25.00

    £25.00

    When Marlborough first acquired its reputation for producing world class Sauvignon Blancs, that was largely down to Cloudy Bay. To this day, their vibrant white wine continues to be one of the best of this variety in the region.

    Citric aromas of zesty lemon, Kaffir lime and nectarine intermingle with orange blossom on the nose before dominating the palate with ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon. These are framed with a sleek and succulent acidity providing great structure.

  8. Coteaux Du Giennois L'Oselier White Wine

    Coteaux Du Giennois L'Oselier 2015

    £13.75

    £13.75

    The grape vines in the Loire Valley had taken a hiding the last few years. When Mother Nature finished flinging harrowing hail she summoned sizzingly searing summers. The weather gods wrath resulted in lower harvests and ...more importantly increased prices of the famous wines of Sancerre and Pouilly Fume. Fear not damsels and dudes who adore these wines! Our knight in shining amour comes galloping from the slopes of the Cote Du Giennois. Heralding shining crispness, armed with orange, pears and flinty flavours. A heroic alternative to our aforementioned, besieged friends and a Sauvignon to shield us during hard times.

  9. Ventus White Wine

    Del Fin Del Mundo Ventus White 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Someone finally got them together. It's like two friends that have always had a thing for each other but never hit it off. Ventus White is that couple that finally got together. Like that damn film Clueless. Or When Harry met Sally...or When Tropical Met Citrus Fruits finally admit love last minute in the airport departure lounge. Somehow it totally works and they both sit down for a meal and a glass of wine. This wine is our kind of 'Friend with Benefits'.

  10. Dig This! Chenin Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Dig This! Chenin Sauvignon Blanc 2017

    £7.50

    £7.50

    Of all the pirates of the Western Cape, none were more infamous than Captain Cork. Indeed, so legendary were his deeds, some believed he was simply a myth, a bogeyman. But when Klaas stumbled upon an ancient map of the Province, he was sure it pointed the way to Cork's treasure.

    He spent months digging, finding nothing, growing increasingly frustrated until he gave up. However, on returning some years later, newly determined to uncover the horde, Klaas found vines had rooted themselves in the many holes he'd half-dug. The place was dripping with golden grapes, like pieces of eight; a wealth of precious juice. He just needed to swap his spade for secateurs and the treasure was all his!

  11. Dolia Sauvignon Blanc

    Dolia Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £7.25

    £7.25

    Dolia. A refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from Gascony, SW France. But, little did we know, it is also a defunct Bishop's seat in Sardinia, founded in 1100 AD. Well, this got us interested in this Mediterranean isle and we discovered, gleefully, that the word "sardonic" comes from the result of a native herb that causes convulsive laughter in its victims. Who knew?

    Anyway, like we said, this is a clean, crisp drop of white wine and would make a good plus one at any party.

  12. Domaine La Tour Beaumont Haut-Poitou 2016

    Domaine La Tour Beaumont Haut-Poitou 2016

    £11.50

    £11.50

    If someone was to tune into The Only Way is Essex, even if they didn't know what the programme was, you can be fairly sure that they can identify the county in question. Likewise, if you were to tune into Rab C. Nesbitt, you could probably pin it down to Glasgow.

    That's because they have a strong sense of place and it's a similar thing with the Haut-Poitou Sauvignon: its gooseberry, lime and blackcurrant leaf flavours are unmistakably Loire Valley and this is one channel you'll always be glad to tune into.

  13. Dourthe Croix des Bouquets Graves 2015 White Wine

    Dourthe Croix des Bouquets Graves Blanc 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Nobody thought Pierre could actually tell which grapes had gone into any given wine just by using his nose. But that is what he boasted. Down to the very vine the grapes that made it came from.

    To throw him off the scent, sceptical colleagues mixed together crisp, grassy Sauvignon and citrussy Semillon and presented Pierre with two buckets, challenging him to tell them which was which. After a few sniffs, Pierre looked at them contemptuously and said with a Gallic shrug: 'Ha! You crossed the buckets!' They drank the mixture anyway. The blend was so delicious they continue to make it today, using only Pierre's nose to finalise the exact percentage of each batch.

  14. Etienne de Loury 'Le Petit Duc' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Etienne de Loury 'Petit Duc' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £12.50

    £12.50

    Etienne de Loury Petit Duc Sauvignon Blanc is a remarkably aromatic white wine with pleasant floral and fruit aromas of citrus, apples and gooseberries. The palate reveals the refreshing and vivacious characteristics of Sauvignon Grapes harvested at the perfect maturity.

  15. Domaine du Salvard Cheverny 'Vignes des Marnières'

    Famille Delaille Cheverny 'Vignes des Marnieres' 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    There's more to Loire valley Sauvignon than Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. Even occasionally more than just Sauvignon Blanc. This lesser known gem of a white wine delivers all the bone dry, nettles and flint crispness you'd expect from it's better known near neighbours, but with 15% Chardonnay added to this blend there's just a hint of something richer, rounder and riper that will take you pleasantly by surprise. And without a big name premium its something of a bargain to boot!

  16. Footprint Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine

    Footprint 'The Long Walk' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    There was no doubt. Grapes were going missing. Not just grapes, the best grapes. Everyone was baffled. Until one evening there was a light shower of rain, and in the softened ground the next morning, a footprint... Only Naas wore such footwear, and was duly arrested.

    Given his urgent protests, the humble grape picker was allowed a chance to prove his innocence. That night he filled his shoes with glue and left them, as he always did, outside on the step. Shortly after dark, unmentionable curses lifted through the night; and caught there in the shoe, much to Naas's delight, was a little elf*.

    Under duress, the elf let everyone taste the wine he'd made with the stolen grapes. Buckets of green apple and gooseberry zip! One sip and the elf was off the hook. As long as he promised to share...

    *And he was hopping mad.

  17. Janeil Gros Manseng Sauvignon Blanc French White Wine

    Janeil Gros Manseng Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £8.50

    £8.50

    We know 'Gros Manseng' isn't the nicest name for a grape. In fact it sounds like an unflattering description of a singer. But forget all that: its cleansing acidity and flavours of quince and white blossom make it a top companion for Sauvignon Blanc and more than compensates for its unfortunate moniker.

  18. Joss Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Joss Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £15.00

    £15.00

    If you're a regular Oddbinite you may already be familiar with Hayden Johnston's (head winemaker of Joss Bay) work; he's also behind Kuru Kuru, a wine we've been singing the praises of, long before many of us were legally allowed to drink it. Hayden ended a career in accounting and finance to start making cracking Sauvignon Blanc. The right call dare we say, we have more than enough balance-sheets and KPIs but the world can always do with a stone-fruity, grapefruity Sauvignon with a rich creamy-texture. Good on ya Hayden!

  19. Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand White

    Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £13.50

    £13.50

    In Japan "kuru-kuru" means to spin around and "kuru-kuru-pa" is a colloquialism meaning insane. Although the Kuru Kuru Sauvignon Blanc actually takes its name from a Maori ancestor of the winemaker, the Japanese seems kind of fitting as this wine is insanely good and its heady aromas and flavours will send your taste buds into a spin. New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc at its finest, each dizzyingly impressive sip will lure you spiralling back in for another.

  20. La Girouette Sauvignon Blanc

    La Girouette Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £7.75

    £7.75

    When you're choosing wine, the options can seem baffling. We have seen grown men weeping, rocking on the floor at their local corner shop for a beacon, something - anything - to guide them through the bewildering array of wines that the shop keep know nothing about. At Oddbins we try to make sure that never happens.

    One way we do this is to say 'if you like X wine, you may like this one too'. So! If you like Loire Sauvignon Blanc, you are going to love La Girouette. It delivers the tang-tastic citrus fruit of Loire Sauvignons with a little more fruit vibrancy, from the fulsome Languedoc sun.

  21. Le Bouquet de nos Vignes Blanc 2016 White Wine

    Le Bouquet de nos Vignes Blanc 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    Everyone knew Mademoiselle Renifler hated flowers. Insipid, fragile little hussies! She much preferred fruit; the ripe evening colour of white peaches; crisp apples; the languid perfection of almonds*.Why then, when she fell ill, did so many people send flowers? She could cope with the malady, but all those bunches of wilting blooms...

    Luckily, her neighbours knew better. They toyed with sending a fruit basket, but knew she was too frail to eat. So, being vignerons, they fashioned a wine, bringing together the mademoiselle's favourite fruit flavours. 'Our bouquet', they called it in jest. She loved it! So much so, she not only survived the illness, but lived to a ripe old age!

    *Which are fruit, by the way.
  22. Longview The Whippet Sauvignon Blanc Australian Wine

    Longview 'The Whippet' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £13.50

    £13.50

    ***Commended at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Well. When we got into the business of selling wine, little did we imagine that we would become the go-to business for Whippet lovers nationwide. But, for obvious reasons, Longview winery’s Whippet Sauvignon Blanc has gone down a storm with the canine-loving community.

    Thankfully, it happens to be a cracking little wine too. Racier than a Whippet in a field of sheep, it is bursting with gooseberry, asparagus and nettle flavours.

  23. Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    For the Spanish aficionados amongst you, you may be aware Los Tortolitos translates as "the Lovebirds." This name derives from Chilean harvesters observing a lone jay looking terriably blue. Depressed by his hermit existence but accepting of his lot, he turned to the age old monkish practice of assisting in the production of wine. He would pick single grapes and drop them into the harvester's baskets. One day, in a moment of decadence, he ate a grape and was so overcome with the refreshing taste of the Sauvignon Blanc grape he was inspired to invent Tindr. He swiped right on a charming young parakeet from the central valley and the rest is history. Now Tinder and Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc are helping lovebirds everywhere.

  24. Manuka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine New Zealand

    Manuka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £10.75

    £10.75

    All over Marlborough unusual geysers spurt manuka honey high into the air. Although initially this was a sticky nightmare for the locals, since manuka honey joined goji berries and pink Himalayan rock salt in the mystical list of superfoods, the locals have embraced the manuka springs.

    The world renowned Sherwood Estate makes this wonderful Sauvignon Blanc in their honour. A veritable fruit salad up the nose, gooseberries, limes, guavas and passionfruits, followed by a tangy lemony slap on the taste buds.

  25. Matetic EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc White Wine

    Matetic EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £15.50

    £15.50

    This delightful Sauvignon Blanc is certainly worth a try! Tropical fruit combines with citrus to create a delicate and complex nose. We're not sure what heaven would look like but we certainly hope its filled with as much joy and pleasure as this wine gives us when drinking it.

  26. Menetou Salon Henry Pellé 'Les Bornés' Loire France Wine

    Menetou Salon Henry Pellé 'Les Bornes' 2014

    £14.50

    £14.50

    From the producer who almost single-handedly put Menetou-Salon on the map as a serious competitor to its big-name neighbours, Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, this wine is really a delight.

    Crisp and cleansing, with brilliantly pure lemon fruit, this is what the Loire is all about and, between you and us, the prices haven't caught up yet, so now's a good time to get in there.

  27. Otter's Claw Sauvignon Blanc White wine

    Otter's Claw Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £9.50

    £9.50

    Lothian Vineyards in Elgin, South Africa are committed to making the highest quality, Burgundy-style wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but they attach equal care and importance to their day-to-day wines, Otter's Claw Sauvignon Blanc and Horny Owl Shiraz.

    We have precious little idea where otters and owls come into it - perhaps they form part of the region's almost psychedelic biodiversity - but we wouldn't blame any otter for wanting to get its claws around this Sauvignon, which is an effusive melange of lime, kiwi fruit and pineapple all coming together over a base of lingering minerality.

  28. Oveja Negra Sauvignon Blanc Carmenere Chile

    Oveja Negra Sauvignon Blanc Carmenère 2016

    £9.00

    £9.00

    Like when you walk into the garden after a long winter to discover lil' daffodils boldly bursting forth in search of sun and warmth and other heart-gladdening flora, Oveja Negra is a pleasant surprise.

    A frankly weird blend of Sauvignon Blanc and the plump yet herbaceous red grape, Carmenère, it has an intensely, marvellously refreshing grapefruit-y core, with subtle mineral characteristics and a herbal touch from the Carmenère. A wine to put a spring in your step and a smile on your face.

    You're getting hotter! Buy this wine and you could win a 7 night trip for 2 to Chile, courtesy of Oveja Negra winery. More details HERE

  29. Pascal Jolivet Attitude Sauvignon Blanc White Wine

    Pascal Jolivet Attitude Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £13.00

    £13.00

    'Less is more', the saying goes. But we're not so sure. Is one scoop really better than two? Would we rather a two day weekend or a three? The answer always seems to suggest that 'more is more'. But then this little number came along and it all made sense!

    Jolivet and his team have really mastered the art of 'less is more', with minimal intervention wine making, focusing simply on the purity of the grape, unique nuances from the terroir and allowing natures vibrancy to take centre stage.

    But then, once you've tried its delicate aromas of lime, green apple, kiwi fruit and some vegetal notes, you might end up asking yourself, is one glass really better then two?

  30. Pouilly Fume 'Pierre Louis' Guyollot 2015 White Wine

    Pouilly-Fumé 'Pierre-Louis' Guyollot 2015

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Sports fans worldwide are familiar with the Gallic cockerel, but few know its significance. Nowadays, this national symbol suggests pride and pizazz; but it's origins stem from an act of defiance. Roman invaders had besieged a small community of chicken farmers in the Loire. The farmers held out bravely, repelling the Romans with every stick, stone, shoe, and over-cooked loaf they had. Until there was nothing left to hurl.

    In desperation they turned to their chickens. Plump and properly reared as they were, it was clear their impact would be minor. Therefore, confident the flames would cause only superficial harm before being doused by the passage through the air, they set the chickens afire. And so it was. The Romans found themselves bombarded with a barrage of smouldering foul. The Poulet Fumer - 'Smokey Chicken' - of Loire legend. Oh.. hang on. Pouilly... ah.

  31. Pouilly-Fumé Petit Fumé 2015 White Wine

    Pouilly-Fumé Petit Fumé 2015

    £16.50

    £16.50

    This is called ""Petit"" Fumé but it is anything but a ""petit vin"". This comes as no surprise, as Sebastien Redde, the winemaker, is a descendant of 14 generations of wine growers, which takes us back to 1630!

    On the nose you get white fruits and fresh herb and floral notes, and on the palate you get the classic aromas of wet stone, citrus fruits and light floral notes. This wine is all about freshness. Try it with a typical French goats cheese salad and you will immediately feel like you're in France, sitting on a chair outside in a garden full of peach trees, on a sunny but fresh spring afternoon.

    You might even start to speak French fluently without even noticing, and say something like: ""Petit? Ah non, certainement pas! Ce Petit Fumé est un "grand” vin!"" You wouldn't even know what you were saying but you would be sure that it made sense...

  32. Rapaura Springs Sauvignon Blanc White Wine

    Rapaura Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Full-flavoured and exceptionally pure with sweet, juicy tropical flavours and succulent passionfruit, a lively whack of zesty citrus and freshly squeezed lime makes the finish luscious, dry and refreshing.

  33. Ribbonwood Sauvignon Blanc White Wine NZ

    Ribbonwood Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Smell plays a massive part in what you taste. That's why when your nose is all bunged up food tastes bland. If you don't believe us pinch your nose and eat a mouthful of banana, you'll notice that it tastes muted, but when you release your nostrils you get a whoosh of banana flavour.

    The Ribbonwood Sauvignon Blanc is the epitome of aromatic; drinking a glass of this wine should be renamed "arom-ercise" as it's a veritable nostril workout.

  34. Saint Clair Pioneer Block 3 Sauvignon Blanc 2014

    Saint Clair Pioneer Block 3 Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £19.50

    £19.50

    While you might be familiar with the story of Saint Clair and her extraordinary act of patience at the Vicar's tea party, you might not know that after downing the immortalised glass of perfectly chilled sparkling, the young lady walked away from the table at a peculiar angle of 43 degrees NE to SW, shedding tears of joy. Legend has it these tears were pure Sauvignon Blanc, and as they fell to the soil, fresh young vines sprouted.

    While conventional preference is to plant vines North to South, this miracle resulted in a divine wine. The grapes facing south added fresh, greener character; while those facing North blessed the wine with delicious tropical notes.
  35. Saint Clair Vicars Choice Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand

    Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    It's hard to stand out against the crowd, especially when the crowd is over-crowded. Y'know? Kiwi Sauvignon is a wine type that faces this peril. However, like a bright colour in a sea of beige, Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc shines through like a triumphant hero, waving its piercing flavours of vibrant passion fruit, zippy grapefruit and herbaceous blackcurrant leaf boldly aloft, saying 'I have a voice!' Well, luckily our Buyer Ana heard Saint Clair's cry and picked it up, giving it its rightful place on Oddbins shelves. A little character goes a long way...

  36. Salmon Run Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014 White Wine

    Salmon Run Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    The 'salmon run' usually denotes the perilous annual trip that salmon make to their natal rivers to spawn, as bears, eagles and fishermen gather hungrily at the water's edge. However, the salmon in Marlborough are more savvy and have sprouted legs so they can avoid said dangers.

    Whilst they're walking upstream, they often stop by the Giesen winery for a drop of the wine named in their honour. Zesty, strikingly bold, and racy, it is an apt tribute to this most audacious of fish.

  37. Sancerre Etienne de Loury French White Wine

    Sancerre Etienne de Loury 2016

    £20.00

    £20.00

    All the cognoscente seem to reflect positively on this well-established Loire house. An Oddbins long-stander and a label much trusted and liked, this Sancerre is clean, fresh and extremely elegant with an intense focus of flavour.

    You'll find citrus, minerality and a meadowy grassiness. Rather like happening upon a lemon tree on a rocky outcrop.... in a field. One of the best examples of this much admired classic form.

  38. Schauer Sauvignon Blanc Sausal 2016 Austrian White Wine

    Schauer Sauvignon Blanc Sausal 2016

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Look down from Schauer's vineyards - one of Europe's highest winemaking locations - and imagine: 300 million years ago, everything you see below lay beneath a prehistoric ocean; and where you're standing was an island. Mindblowing how things evolve.

    This wine is testament to that. Sauvignon Blanc from Austria! Planted on severe slate slopes, with uncompromising character. Minerality, Alpine herbs; and crisp and clean as mountain air. An extraordinary meeting of modern and ancient. Who said time travel is impossible? Just take a sip!

  39. Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Now £7.00

    Was £7.50

    £7.00

    vid Bowie loved to be musical and was a visual chameleon. Sauvignon Blanc likes to shape shift too. This white grape can change its flavour of wine according to where it's grown. From Bordeaux to New Zealand this grape has many guises across the globe.

    In Chile, Sauvignon Blanc comes out in a sparkling body suit of citrus and tropical fruits. Like our favourite Starman, Sauvignon Blanc morphs like Bowie's face and words.

  40. The Kauri Tree Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    The Kauri Tree Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Did you know that Kauri trees can stand up to 50m high?

    The immense height of these trees allows them to dominate forest canopies and makes them an effective winemaking tool for crushing grapes. Each harvest, Alan McCorkindale takes a trip to find one of the ancient giants, climbing it with his parcels of Sauvignon Blanc grapes. He then drops the grapes back down into a tank, one by one, releasing deliciously zingy juices for his wine as the impact crushes the fruit.

    Clean, crisp and refreshingly fruity, this Marlborough white wine is named in honour of the Kauri Trees' key part in this unconventional and somewhat fictional method.*

    *We confess, it's actually named after these awe-inspiring trees as a reminder of nature's magnificent capabilities, which is why McCorkindale and his team interfere with their grapes as little as possible when making their delicious wines.

  41. Touraine Chenonceaux La Vouté 2015 French Wine

    Touraine Chenonceaux La Voûte 2016

    £15.75

    £15.75

    Usually, with white wine, the grapes are whisked off the skins before fermentation, which otherwise start imparting tannins and whatnot (that's a technical term), more appropriate for red wines. However! Some vintners, like Thierry Delauney in the Loire Valley, opt to leave the skins in the mix for part of the fermentation.

    Why do we sound so excited about this? Because it can lead to incredibly exciting, supple, textured wines such as La Vouté. It is rare for Sauvignon to be so fulsome and golden, but that it is, with glorious flavours of exotic fruits, citronella and white flowers.

  42. Touraine Sauvignon Blanc Moulin des Aigremonts 2015

    Touraine Sauvignon Blanc Moulin des Aigremonts 2015

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Ooooooh! We'll repeat that: Ooooooh! You'll know what we mean when you taste this. This is what the Loire is all about, at a price that doesn't induce a panic attack. Crisply aromatic, with a great balance of freshness, attractive clean gooseberry fruit and grassy aromas.

    It's about as refreshing as sitting in a dell in the Lake District, whilst someone chucks buckets of ice-cold mountain water over you while singing Smiths songs in meandering alto. But nicer than that.

  43. Tupari Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand Wine

    Tupari Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £18.50

    £18.50

    As crisp as a Ryvita, as elegant as Audrey Hepburn and as mineral as a Loire white, this shows another dimension to the Kiwi classic. From a winemaker that brought you the legendary Dashwood Sauvignon while working at Vavasour; this beauty is a real rival for Sancerre. Extended ageing on the lees imparts a creamy citrussy depth that perfectly contrasts the refreshing white peach, orange zest, melon and passion fruit. This has summer written all over it, so try it with quiche, goats' cheese, rocket salads or asparagus.

    Winemaker Thierry Delaunay exemplifies the best of the new generation of French wine makers and, while appreciating the traditional nuances of terroir and climate, Thierry has enthusiastically embraced modern winemaking techniques and styles. In other words, it's right tidy. Tydy. In fact, if you were pressed into describing it in terms of home ware shops (this can happen), an accurate match would be Ikea. A slim little package that, when unpacked, creates a clean, refreshing ambience whatever the surroundings.

    Winemakers go a long way to make sure their grapes are taken care of. But William Cole goes an extra step. Casablancan locals thought 'Bill' had gone mad when they woke one morning to the sound of his rich tenor voice resounding through the foggy valley.

    Turns out he wasn't mad after all. Bill was singing to reassure his grapes, so they weren't made all anxious by the thick fogs that come in off the sea most evenings. Knowing their faithful winemaker was there to look after them meant the grapes could relax in the sea mist without being scared, and let the cool, refreshing 'Albamar' enhance their beautifully crisp, appley acidity.
