  1. Aymura Syrah Chilean Red Wine 2013

    Aymura Syrah 2013

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Elqui Valley, Chile. Giorgio Flessati, a winemaker from the mountains of Northern Italy, is standing in a barrel room, gazing with satisfaction at the Aymura Syrah he has made for Viña Mayu. In five months it will be bottled and all who cross its path will be impressed by the thick, red fruit flavours which underpin its heady whirl of black pepper, smoke and leather.

    While the wine ages, Giorgio will fly back to Trentino, to catch up with family and friends and generally enjoy La Dolce Vita. During his flight he will doze, and dream about the wine he has made over the years in Bordeaux, Sicily, even Australia.

    Cambridgeshire, England. Dave Conkers, a factory supervisor from Peterborough, is standing in his garage, smiling wistfully at a row of demijohns. Mmm, this year should be the best yet. Hush now, Dave is dreaming too. Let him fly.

  2. Cesar a Sumeire Rosé Wine France

    César à Sumeire Rosé 2016

    £28.00

    £28.00

    In the world of Provencal rosés, as with Victorian make-up, the general rule is the paler the better. This doesn't mean that they are wan wallflowers (as we imagine Victorian women) but, as with Cesar, they can be thrilling, vivacious, flavour-packed and racy wines.

    With an elegant nose of jasmine and wild rose and an ample palate of cranberries and lemon peel, there isn't a trace of sober Victoriana. Er, which isn't to say you shouldn't be sober at all times, officer.

  3. Cotes Du Rhone 'Blason' Esterzagues French Red Wine

    Côtes Du Rhône 'Blason' Esterzagues 2015 *WEB EXCLUSIVE*

    £9.75

    £9.75

    No matter how rugged someone thinks they are- everyone wants to hide under a favourite blanket at some point. This Côtes du Rhône is the red wine equivalent. Juicy red berry fruits knit together with tummy warming spices. Woven from Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre this red wine duvet is completely unfiltered, giving it an extra silky texture. A perfect tipple with friends or when you're feeling 'Rhônely'...ahem.

  4. Château Cesseras 'Cuvée Olric' Minervois 2014

    Château Cesseras 'Cuvée Olric' Minervois 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Minervois is a region that has been making wine as far back as the Romans and beyond. In fact, the name derives from the region's city, Minerve, which in turn takes its name from the Roman goddess Minerva. Minerva was the god of wisdom, poetry, arts and magic. As art and wisdom are synonymous with great wine, we (Oddbins Historical Research Department) believe Minervois was in high cahoots with her work colleague Dionysus. He was in charge of the God's celestial wine store. Although not documented we are certain they are responsible for ensuring the almost limitless production of robust spicy reds that has flowed out from this land ever since its Minervoisation. This red wine is from Minervois la Liviniere, a place the benevolent duo made sure always made the best wines in the area. Rich black cherry, black plums smothered in herbs and spices. So when you are fortunate enough to have a glass of this red- raise your chalice to the ancient wisdom of a Roman Goddess and her vinous partner in crime!

  5. Chateauneuf Du Pape Domaine des Senechaux Red Wine

    Châteauneuf Du Pape Domaine des Senechaux 2013

    £35.00

    £35.00

    If this Chateauneuf Du Pape was a mythical beast it would be the Panther, a mighty cat from greek folk lore. With it's sleek yet full bodied, powerful dark berry fruit and liqourice flavours. This creature's charm is so irresistible that when it roared all things would fall prey to it's call. Equally as appropiate - the story goes the Panther is the favoured stead of Dionysus- God of the harvest, wine, festivitals and good times! A special wine for memorable occasions...or toga parties?

  6. Clos Bellane "Altitude" Côtes du Rhône Rosé Wine 2013

    Clos Bellane "Altitude" Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    At Oddbins Towers we call this The Pink Panther. It bears no resemblance to the sneaky cartoon character in the title sequence of the film and its winemaker is certainly not a bumbling fool like Inspector Jacques Clouseau.

    No, we call this The Pink Panther because it's a diamond, a precious and brilliant diamond with a delicate pink hue. In fact this rosé wine is so good and has proven so popular we've had to employ Cato to protect it in our warehouse. He's just so unpredictable; half our staff are off with injuries.

  7. Clos Bellane 'Les Echalas' Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Rouge 2012

    Clos Bellane 'Les Echalas' Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Rouge 2014

    £20.50

    £20.50

    It's well known that many indigenous people of the Rhone, like most mountain folk, are short and squat. To be born tall and thin is a boon, here; and from an early age these 'beanpoles' are singled out for specialist work, picking the higher grapes from the tops of the vines.

    Taking it's name from the French for pole, or stake, 'Éschalas' honours these gangly individuals, without whom those sun-filled grapes right at the top of the vine would never have made it into this belting Rhone blend. Honest...

  8. Cortes de Cima Red Wine Portugal

    Cortes de Cima 2013

    £13.75

    £13.75

    It feels like this was destined to become an Oddbins wine. In 1988 a sailboat carrying a Dane and an American arrived in Portugal. These two set up camp, ignored local advice, threw the rule book out of the window and made this chunky red wine out of about a billion grape varieties.

    Although the label may only attract those with a penchant for earthenware, we have every confidence that the award winning contents will win many supporters. We are extremely proud to introduce: Cortes de Cima.

  9. Couleur De Rosé Wine

    Couleur de Rosé 2016

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Another excellent rosé by well known winemaker Claude Serra. The rosé is macerated for 8 to 12 hours before being fermented before filtering.

    It is pale in colour, offering a sweet nose with flavours of strawberries complimented by pepper and menthol notes. On the palate it is crisp, with a great balance between the rich fruity aromas and freshness. It provides a long and fresh finish.

  10. Denatile Nero D'Avola Shiraz Italian Red Wine

    Denatile Nero D'Avola Shiraz 2016

    £6.75

    £6.75

    Deep red in colour, rich and well balanced. The bouquet is fruity, floral and spicy, with hints of vanilla and tobacco. Round and full on the palate, with soft tannins, this wine is ideal served with mature cheese, oven-baked pasta or roasted meats.

  11. Dig This! Shiraz Merlot 2016

    Dig This! Shiraz Merlot 2016

    £7.50

    £7.50

    There were so many pirates at one point in the seas around the Cape that the nearby land became infested with escaped parrots. These parrots had a penchant for ripe, fruity grapes; and given the seasonal glut, they soon learned to bury their food for the harder months to come. The holes Klaas had half-dug, unsuccessful in his search to uncover Captain Cork's legendary horde, proved the perfect hiding place!

    But parrots, of course, are famously forgetful. It was only a matter of time before those buried grapes burst into vine. When Klaas returned to the Province to resume his search, the place was laden with ruby jewels! He just needed to harvest these riches to have his spade work pay off.

  12. Arnesque Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Capelane French Red Wine 2014

    Domaine de L'Arnesque Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Capelane 2014

    £26.50

    £26.50

    Châteauneuf is a classic. And this is as breathtaking an example as you're likely to come by at this outstandingly reasonable price tag. With this vintage of Cuvée Capelane outscoring renowned competitors at twice the price in many a contest, Domaine de l'Arnesque really are showcasing their virtuosity here. Smooth, rich and profound, this is a really unmissable must-try expression of this exalted style of red wine.

  13. Dos Dedos de Fente 2010  Red Wine

    Dos Dedos de Frente 2014

    £22.00

    £22.00

    Dos Dedos de Frente is a contraction of 'no tiene dos dedos de frente'. This translates literally as 'he doesn't have two fingers of forehead' but is actually a Spanish idiom meaning 'he isn't the brightest button in the haberdashers', or a modern equivalent. You're worried now, aren't you?

    Well don't be, because all you really need to know is that this is a deliciously intense wine with a cassis and violet nose and a full, black fruit palate thickened with well-integrated oak. But it'll be a while before you can find that out for yourself, because you're not even thinking about the wine yet, are you?

    Instead, you've got your fingers on your forehead, and you're wondering if your forehead begins at the top of your nose, or just above your eyebrows. Stop it, just pick the glass up!

  14. Elderton Estate 'Greenock Two' GSM

    Elderton Estate 'Greenock Two' GSM 2013

    £22.00

    £22.00

    We all need a little TLC now and then. A bit of pampering. A brief brush with luxury sometimes to make us feel special. Well, FYI, this GSM is an easy way to get yourself feeling that way ASAP. Plush, rich, velvety textures; seductive aromas of violet and anise; sumptuous rounded tones.

    Feel waited on hand and foot by a team of grapes. Our warm, earthy Mourvedre; gentle Grenache; and bold Shiraz. There's no need to DIY BTW. Just relax. Let the wine do the work, and let your worries go AWOL a while.

  15. First Creek Hunter Valley Shiraz Red Wine

    First Creek Hunter Valley Shiraz 2014

    £16.50

    £16.50

    "Own label wine brands." Words which, rightly or wrongly, send a shiver down many a spine. A phrase which sounds like a four-word Gothic novel, but really it depends on whose own label it is. Mickey Tipton's Fowl Emporium may arouse suspicion, for instance, as might King-size Tony's Sweetbread Parlour.

    But in Hunter Valley, New South Wales, the First Creek Winery was making wine under contract for local growers. And they were so good at it that in 2008 they started a range of their own, including this gorgeously satisfying, concentrated, medium-bodied Shiraz, and within a very short time it was winning all manner of awards.

    Mickey Tipton's Château Gazunder, alas, couldn't get a Food Hygiene Certificate.

  16. Font Sereine Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2014

    Font Sereine Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2014

    £21.50

    £21.50

    70 hectares. That's 175 acres, or about two thirds of Liverpool's resplendent Sefton Park. Only it's in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in the Southern Rhône Valley, an area of such beauty that the Pope once fancied having himself a new castle there.

    It's from this particular 70 hectare expanse that we get this fabulous red wine, with its berry and liquorice nose and its cherry, cassis and herb-medley-ed palate. No wonder the 'Vaudieu' is a contraction of the French for 'Valley of God'.

    Mind you, Echo and the Bunnymen once played in Sefton Park and we're not sure the same can be said for the Rhône Valley...

  17. Fontein Ridge Pinotage Shiraz 2015 - South African White Wine

    Fontein Ridge Pinotage Shiraz 2015

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Modern winemakers often talk about having innovative ideas and that's because they know how important it is to bring new and fresh wines to you!

    Take this South African Pinotage and Shiraz blend for example. They call it 'Fontein Ridge' because it contains fountains of juicy tannins and ripe fruit flavours with hints of vanilla and chocolate on the nose. It's almost unbelievable how they get so much into such a small bottle!

    Though, if they wanted to take it one step further we wouldn't complain if they build an actual fountain of wine. Now THAT's what we'd call innovation...

  18. Serabel Gigondas Red Wine France

    Gigondas Dom Des Fontnobles 2014

    £18.00

    £18.00

    The name Gigondas is derived from the Latin 'Jocunditas', meaning great enjoyment and pleasure. What more appropriate name could there be for a place dedicated to the production of wine?

    And when that place is in the southern Rhône and producing wines that rival the best of those of its more celebrated near neighbour, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, at prices that even your bank manager might see as cause for celebration, then it's not hard to see where the great enjoyment and pleasure might be derived.

    "Fiat bonis revolvet", as the Romans might have said... (That's 'let the good times roll' in Latin)

  19. Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz 2013 Australian Red Wine

    Glaetzer Amon-Ra Shiraz 2013

    £67.00

    £67.00

    Amon-Ra: Powerful, compelling, almighty and worshiped in his home country and numerous places the world over.

    Now to play a guessing game, were we referring to the Egyptian 'King of Gods' or Ben Glaetzer's succulent red wine? (Hint: it was both!)

    With supremely rich aromas and flavours of dark stone fruits, hints of coffee, blackberries and a touch of cracked pepper, this dark purple Shiraz truly lives up to its name. The wines brooding complexity and multi-layered structure is simply captivating in an elegant drink that's fit for a Deity.

  20. Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz

    Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz 2014

    £28.00

    £28.00

    This wine was so named because it can only move diagonally. We therefore recommend that when setting the table, the wine be placed in the centre with diners arranged obliquely to it. Which should also maintain the harmony, because this is a quite remarkable drop from the Aussie master Ben Glaetzer. Intense, complex and with impressive cellaring potential this red is always in severe demand. Our bestseller for the Aussie crowd when sending special gifts to their nearest and dearest in the UK, this Bishop has the stamp of approval of a whole nation.

  21. Heartland Directors' Cut Shiraz

    Heartland Directors' Cut Shiraz 2013

    £22.00

    £22.00

    According to winemaker Ben Glaetzer, in films, the 'director's cut' is regarded as the definitive version, subject to no compromises. Although some critics say it represents an exercise in self-indulgence, frankly, we don't really give a damn... What is fine wine, after all but an extremely enjoyable indulgence? So if winemakers as talented as Glaetzer and his co-Directors want to make no compromise in presenting us with this definitive version of a really very fine Aussie shiraz, you won't find us complaining...

  22. Colombo Cotes du Rhone Villages Le Bonne Roche

    Jean-Luc Colombo Côtes du Rhône Villages Le Bonne Roch 2013

    £11.75

    £11.75

    When winemakers make wine, they are painting. They may not wear stripy tops and live bohemian lifestyles, but are artists nonetheless and they take their inspiration and their materials from the land around them.

    In this instance, the materials are the gentle slopes of the southern Rhône, plentiful sun, which provide enough warmth for the grapes to reach ripeness. They then have the after-effects of the Mistral wind, which tears through the northern Rhône and arrives downstream, offering grapes a gentle respite from the Mediterranean sun.

    In the hands of the artists at Jean-Luc Colombo, they turn this palate into a bold, firmly-structured, fine-grained, beauty of a painting.

  23. Colombo Crozes-Hermitage 'La Tuiliere' Red Wine

    Jean-Luc Colombo Crozes-Hermitage 'La Tuiliere' 2015

    £14.75

    £14.75

    We'd really like to talk about this wine. But we'd prefer to do it à la Jean-Luc Picard, of the Star Ship Enterprise, if we may (the winemaker's called Jean-Luc, we're immature, what can we say...)

    Captain's Log, stardate 9357.6. Our destination is Rhône, where our sensors have detected signs of red fruits and gentle spice. Not just that; Spock says there appears to be a tight structure in place. Curious. Nothing has changed in Rhône for generations and their time-honoured traditions make it greatly interesting to us. Wait, they've locked their phasers onto us! Red (wine) alert!

  24. Jean-Luc Colombo Rose ‘Les Pins Couches’

    Jean-Luc Colombo Rosé 'Les Pins Couches' 2015

    £10.00

    £10.00

    This crisp, spicy rosé shares many traits with its nutty namesake detective, Colombo. They both have a decided twinkle in their eye and a deceptively lightness of touch that belies a lovely depth.

    And, whilst we couldn't rightly claim that they both smell of crunchy red cherries and delicate spice, we can definitely say that they both have a memorable finish that, just when you think it's over, leans and intones 'just one more thing'...

  25. Jim Barry Mcrae Wood Shiraz 10

    Jim Barry Mcrae Wood Shiraz 2012

    £34.00

    £34.00

    An opaque wine made from the popular Shiraz varietal of Australia. Rich with aromas of fresh red fruits, plums and a hint of liquorice on the nose before a well structured palate of red and black berries, topped with a touch of oak. Concentrated yet balanced.

  26. Jim Barry PB Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

    Jim Barry PB Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Now £34.20

    Was £38.00

    £34.20

    Whether it's shaving off a few seconds at the finish line in a three-legged race at your offspring's sports day or an all-night Breaking Bad marathon, we all aim to excel in beating our own Personal Best.

    Peter Barry however, wasn't even competing when he created his own Personal Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Shiraz, but his friends and family loved it so much that they urged him to create more, thus creating his own PB trademark wine.

    Bold, bulky and bursting with vibrant fruits of black cherry and plum, we can only thank his family for offering such sage advice.

  27. The Armagh

    Jim Barry The Armagh Shiraz 2009

    £130.00

    £130.00

    Jim Barry's legendary Armagh is a forceful, powerfully tannic yet majestically elegant wine that will have no problems seeing out another 15-20 years in a lovely, cool dark cellar. You might even feel tempted to go down there and stand vigil over it, to make sure nobody disturbs its evolution. But beware, it is seriously enjoyable even now in its infancy, with flavours of red currants, black cherries and blueberries and an undercurrent of freshly turned earth and truffles, so you may find yourself proving a slightly useless guard.

  28. La Purisma Syrah Spanish Red

    La Purísima Syrah 2014

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Bodegas La Purísima was founded in in 1946 by a forward-thinking group of farmers who recognised the potential of their land to produce better quality wines. Their sustained efforts led to the creation of the coveted' Denomination Origin' of Yecla in 1975.

    Quite some achievement - and the bodegas has gone from strength to strength, these days creating confident wines such as La Purisma Syrah. A deep ruby in colour, with intense flavours of violets and flourishes of spicy black fruit. Farmers, we thank you.

  29. Las Colinas del Ebro Syrah/Garnacha 2014

    Las Colinas del Ebro Syrah/Garnacha 2014

    Now £8.33

    Was £9.25

    £8.33

    Purity. It's a desirable quality. People will pay much money for water transported in from an unadulterated Greenlandic cloud and such like, but Las Colinas del Ebro offers something much tastier: fruit purity.

    Made solely from the 'free-run juice', this wine has fewer tannins and fresh, vibrant blueberry and blackberry fruit. Like cloud-sourced Greenlandic water, 'tis best enjoyed when young and, possibly unlike cloud-sourced Greenlandic water, has some keen spices and would be a fabulous match for a Catalan lamb stew.

  30. Le Bouquet de nos Vignes Rouge Red Wine

    Le Bouquet de nos Vignes Rouge 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    Marianne le Pétale was, without question, the most beautiful girl in La Vicomté. There was no doubt. Once she turned twenty she would be Flower Queen. Everyone agreed. It would be a travesty were she not. There was just one problem. Marianne had terrible Hay Fever*. And being Flower Queen meant being garlanded with blooms.

    Happily, a group of quick-thinking vignerons suggested a solution. Rather than gathering blossoms to celebrate Marian's investiture, they fashioned a wine. A wine bursting with fragrance, shimmering with deep berry colours and the violet tints of Marianne's eyes. A wine as vibrant and exuberant as the flowers that would otherwise have been presented. "Our bouquet", they commented, and winked, as the beautiful Marianne donned her crown.

    *That's why she was sometimes a bit sniffy.

  31. Le Hameau des Ollieux Corbières Boutenac 2014

    Le Hameau des Ollieux Corbières Boutenac 2014

    £17.50

    £17.50

    When is an organic grape not an organic grape? When its bona fides haven't been certified by the appropriate agricultural body! Hmmm, needs a bit of work but, like many wineries, Château Ollieux Romanis follows organic viticulture methods yet leaves its options open should a vintage go awry.

    Wine quality is the overriding priority, and the smallest possible quantities of non-organic compounds will be used to rescue a crop if it's entirely necessary. Trust us, it hurts them even more than it hurts you, and it's a tiny sacrifice for this heady blend of liquorice, spice, blackcurrant and mocha.

  32. Longview 'Red Bucket' Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Longview 'Red Bucket' Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    £12.00

    £12.00

    ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015*

    Founded by brothers Peter and Mark Saturno, after they tired of city life in The Big Apple and decided to return home to their homeland of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills, Australia. Whilst we are happy that they were able to retreat from the frenetic pace of New York, we’re also very pleased that they started making wine in this idyllic spot.

    Macclesfield is a tad warmer than the rest of the cool climate region of Adelaide, and this means that the Saturno brothers are able to produce wines with great depth and intensity, as well as the finesse and poise, like this rich, raspberry and game-flavoured belter. A rather nice homecoming, we say.
  33. Longview Yakka Shiraz Australian Wine

    Longview 'Yakka' Shiraz 2014

    £16.50

    £16.50

    ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    This wine takes its name not from the Aussie slang for hard work, although judging by its magnificently rich, sturdy and swarthy character, you’d wager they had put a lot of work into it. Nope, this wine takes its name from the striking Australian grass shrub, pictured on the label, which also reveals the producer’s love for their homeland and this, too, shines through in this terroir-driven wine, whose dense, ripe black cherry and white pepper flavours show off the warmth of the Macclesfield micro-climate.
  34. Lothian Vineyards 'Horny Owl' Shiraz South African Wine

    Lothian Vineyards 'Horny Owl' Shiraz 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    We are quite sure that there is a more profound meaning attached to this South African Shiraz, but we're just going to admit that we are finding it hard not to let our inner teenager snigger at the name.

    Pathetic and immature, yes, BUT, remember, this is Oddbins and we are allowed to be ridiculous. Mm kay? Just don't bring this wine to the first meeting with your super conservative in-laws to be, like someone did, ahem.

    Idiocy aside, the tantalizing aromas of dark brooding fruits and spice-laden goodness should leave you in a tip top mood. It might even put you in another kind of mood altogether...
  35. Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah 2013

    Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah 2013

    £33.00

    £33.00

    If you're a world-class winery, you will be in possession of a few things, including a gifted winemaker and a well-placed vineyard. Man O' War have both of these. Their winemaker, Duncan McTavish is basically a grape-whisperer and the vineyard where the Syrah vines grow might as well have an X marking the spot on the map. It has a well-angled slope, which means the vine can catch the sun for the longest amount of time, and a cooling sea breeze, which means the grapes don't get hot under the collar. All of which leads to a breath-taking wine, with smoky peat notes draped over the overt blueberry and pepper aromas. Concentrated yet well-balanced, with vibrant acidity and a streak of almost salty minerality, it would be perfect with wood-fired pigeon.
  36. Manz Pomar do Espirito Red Wine

    Manz Pomar do Espirito Santo 2014

    £16.50

    £16.50

    We all should perhaps take a leaf out of Andre Manz book when it comes to quality over quantity and appreciate the little things in life. Lucky for us there is enough of this stunning wine to go around, for us to fully appreciate the high quality that Manz has worked so hard on.

    Pomar do Espirito has a harmonious aromatic complexity, fresh acidity and a natural freshness allowing for great ageing potential.
  37. Marvelous Red 2015 Red Wine

    Marvelous Red 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    Good jazz is all about balance. Blending. Just the right amount of this, just the right amount of that. It's also about taking a little creative risk now and then. Of course, that could mean things go wrong. But when things go right, wow! That just gets your feet tapping.

    Take this ensemble of Mediterranean varieties. Good soloists, all. But brought together under the baton of an inspired winemaker, well. You better get your dancing shoes. And, of course, creativity is nothing without structure. So, let the old bush vine Cinsault handle that, while the other players go to town. Cherry, rose petals and chalk. Music to the tongue!
  38. Merino Syrah

    Merino Movi Limari Syrah 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Don't have the wool pulled over your eyes, this is not an advert for merino jumpers. However, this Syrah would certainly keep you warm if you walked the wind swept hills of this wine's home in the Limari Valley, Chile. Rich yet elegant black berry and raspberry flavours, followed by Syrah's typical sweet spice and peppery character on the finish. Also, if you think you can taste violets- you'd be tasting the tiny addition (5%) of the white grape Viognier. No need to feel sheepish- try it out!
  39. Message in a Bottle Red Wine By Sting

    Message in a Bottle 2013

    £16.00

    £16.00

    A wine made in Tuscany that comes from the estate owned by musician sting and producer Trudie Styler.

    The nose displays aromas of cherries, wild blackberries and spices.The palate has a richness of fruit but one that is balanced both by careful use of oak and a refreshing acidity.

    Cherrywood, tea leaves and bramble fruits can all be found on the palate. Supple fine grained tannins provide a lovely structure to this long and satisfying wine.
  40. Michelas St Jemms Cornas Les Murettes 2013

    Michelas St Jemms Cornas Les Murettes 2013

    £39.00

    £39.00

    Cornas, some may be surprised to learn is in fact, a renowned winegrowing region in the Northern Rhone and not the plural of the protective outer layer of the eye… That would be corneas. Ironically, the wines of Cornas are said to be so beautiful that to look upon them you can go temporarily blind. This example from Michelas St-Jemms is no exception. Made from 100% Syrah it has complex flavours of dark forest fruit, mocha and a subtle suggestion of roasted meat. There is tremendous depth and concentration, with a lovely balanced structure and long finish. You obviously won’t go blind but you may well be struck dumb. 
  41. Crozes Hermitage Michelas 2016

    Michelas St Jemms Crozes-Hermitage La Chasseliere 2016

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Originally established by Robert and Yvette Michelas, the domain is now run by their four children. Most impressive that they have worked side-by-side for 30 years without letting sibling rivalry enter the vineyards. Claudius couldn’t even make it to the opening seen of Hamlet without bump of his brother. Yet, unity is definitive in this Crozes-Hermitage; with lively acidity perfectly balancing the powerful body and the ripe dark fruits harmonising with the subtle spice notes gained from the oak. Here’s to 30 more years of exceptional sibling winemaking!
  42. Red Wine Monte Das Promessas 2014

    Monte Das Promessas 2014

    From the acclaimed 'Best Young Winemaker of Portugal' and the name behind the success story that is Bons Ventos, comes Monte das Promessas, an extremely fruity wine, with elegant structure and a well-balanced and long aftertaste. Take a sip, smack your lips, gaze into its deep violet colour and breathe in the ripe berry fruit and floral notes, whilst humming along to the famous 'Ten Green Bottles'. We'll give you a starting point. Santos Lima wines are capable of producing the equivalent to 14 million bottles in their 400ha of vineyards... Ahem, 'there were 14 million bottles sitting on the wall...'

    Like the portal on Stargate, or the moment lightning strikes the clock tower, sending Marty McFly Back to the Future, you can yield incredible results when you can align elements in just the right way.

    Combine, for example, an alluvial plateau of old oak trees, 50-year-old Grenache vines, 2,500 hours of sunlight (or thereabouts), the expertise of a renowned winemaker... and something magical is created.

    One sip will have you floating off to a forest glade on a flying picnic rug, picking at ripe red fruits, freshly baked cinnamon buns and delicate, herb-crusted game.

    Perhaps When Chris Met Andrea doesn't have the same ring to it as When Harry Met Sally, but we think their story has all the charm. As young whippersnappers, they toured the world, working harvests in classic wine regions, until their eyes met over a vine (maybe that bit's poetic licence) and they fell in love.

    They returned to Chris' native South Africa where 'they learnt that their compatibility extended into the vineyards and cellar' and started making wines like this succulent, richly-scented blend of Rhône varieties, which is finely textured with a fresh, energizing finish that makes it the ideal match for pork belly. Yet another match made in wine heaven. Alright alright we'll stop with the cheese.

    Carmenere is the forgotten one of the six Bordeaux grape varieties. But like an incredibly athletic and intrepid mole it has popped its head up in Chile. Here it produces some incredibly potent and complex reds like this one.

    Perez Cruz's Carménère is a riotous carnival of a wine, ripe black berry fruits mingle with more dried and baked fruit flavours and some lovely green herby notes. There's so much going on here it's impossible not to just get swept along with the party.

    This wine takes its name from a curious custom in the Maipo Andes, in which new brides must go to the river, catch a fish and whisper "Wakey Wakey", before letting it go about its day.

    But this doesn't tell you much about the wine, so we'll help out: it has ripe red fruits, black pepper and vanilla flavours, underpinned by fresh aromas of tarragon and laurel. We don't know about fish, but we do know about red wine. This is one that's guaranteed to wake up your taste buds.

    Some people feel power from bending others to their will. Not Gus. For Gus, it's all about empowering individuals to express themselves on their own terms, and on terms that bring the best from others. It's little wonder, then, that he brings this philosophy to his wines.

    It's not about forcing character from a variety, but suggesting a little direction now and then. And what better way to broaden the character than to interact? Let the supple humour of one soften the seriousness of another; one's firm determination support another's vibrancy. Altogether quite a team. And to ensure they really perform to their potential, only 3,000 bottles are made each year.

    Penfolds take their red wines very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that there's hardly anything about the Bin 138 that isn't 'red'. Its deep, luscious colour is accompanied by distinctive aromas of raspberry, plum, red liquorice, dark red berries...even their name on the label is red!

    And it doesn't stop there. Hints of kirsch can be found on the palate along with maraschino cherries, accompanying white chocolate and mocha flavours. Medium to full-bodied, this delectable wine offers softened and rounded tannins.
