  1. Bodegas Aster Ribera del Duero Crianza 2013 Spanish Red Wine

    Bodegas Áster Ribera del Duero Crianza 2013

    £19.00

    £19.00

    One of those red wines that is so good it is likely to instantly convert many into lifelong devotees of Spanish wine. This is full-bodied with a deep, swirling whirlpool of dark Tempranillo character and an inspirational vanilla-tinged reminder of top quality oak. An excellent treat to keep in the kitchen for an unexpected special night in after a tough week - but way, way too good to add to anything that requires stirring.
  2. Cillar de Silos Crianza Spanish Red Wine

    Cillar de Silos Crianza 2014

    £18.25

    £18.25

    It's wines like this elegant, intense, blackberry-infused Ribero del Duero, that make selling wine such an absolute pleasure. Because after the bottle is despatched and we have parted company, you, dear customer, can revel in its joys at your leisure, whilst we sit back, have a cup of tea and think happily, "our work here is done now".

    How are we so sure? Because we've yet to pour this red out and witness anything but pure pleasure. Such is its rich, intense decadent appeal. With beautiful notes of top quality oak and deep dark fruit this is a brooding beauty.
  3. Torresilo Ribera del Duero

    Cillar de Silos Torresilo 2014

    £37.00

    £37.00

    Like the Royal Family at the moment, Cillar de Silos just go from strength to strength, and they don't even have Kate Middleton on their team.

    The Aragón family has made wine for personal consumption for as long as records go, but in the 1970s Amalio Aragón started acquiring top vineyard sites in Ribera del Duero.

    His grandson, Óscar, is now head winemaker and is known for making incredible wines, like this deep, meditative, luscious and minerally Tempranillo. Who needs Kate?
  4. Hacienda del Carmen Arlanza 2015 Red Wine Spain

    Hacienda del Carmen Arlanza 2015

    Now £12.00

    Was £14.00

    £12.00

    A Bright cherry red tempranillo with violet tones. Perfumed with black berries and violets leaving an elegant lingering on the palate rich with black cherries and silky tannins.
  5. La Granja 360 Tempranillo Garnacha 2016

    La Granja 360 Tempranillo Garnacha 2016

    £7.50

    £7.50

    Not everything is black and white. Take a badger for example. That's mostly grey. But poor old zebras. Well. Yes. They pretty much are black and white. Which is fine. But what if you're a zebra with ambition? With the will to be different. What do you do about that?

    One zebra tried his best to break the pattern. He feasted on colourful flowers; nibbled bright stones; drank from crystal pools. But nothing worked. Until one night, asleep in a state of despair, the zebra dreamt he drank a glass of ruby wine. Cherries fell from the sky, and the subtle scent of incense filled the air. And when the zebra woke, to its surprise, it found the colour of its stripes had changed. All it takes is a little imagination, and this wine will transform you too.
  6. Luis Alegre Crianza Rioja Red Wine

    Luis Alegre Crianza 2014 - Rioja Alavesa

    £13.75

    £13.75

    Boasting a madcap building that looks like a spaceship has landed in the middle of the Rioja countryside, the Luis Alegre winery is an innovative set up that successfully contrasts the old with the new.

    Though some of the vines are over 100 years old and the winery has been around for nearly 50 years, the winemaking techniques are as current as they come. With the Crianza, vintner Pablo Martinez has made a heavenly, approachable but depthy wine that further underlines his solid reputation.
  7. Luis Alegre Koden Rioja Alavesa 2015

    Luis Alegre Koden Rioja Alavesa 2015

    £10.75

    £10.75

    Koden is an Aztec word meaning "the time in a woman's life when she's at her most splendid" which, we think, is an excellent name for a wine.

    And, with fragrant, red fruit and a velvety, luscious palate, this wine really does have those qualities that you'd associate with feminine beauty and fertility.

    Ahem, sorry, this all sound a bit odd now we're reading it back, but you'll see what we mean if you try it.
  8. Luis Alegre Rosado Flores Spanish Rosé Wine

    Luis Alegre Rosado Flores 2016

    £9.50

    £9.50

    This wine is like a Provençal rosé that has been randomly transported to the hills of Rioja Alavesa, maybe by some freak whirlwind, like in The Wizard of Oz, into a foreign land. But, far from being an unwanted guest, the team at Bodegas Luis Alegre proudly declare "it has a beautiful, salmon-pink colour and enticing, subtle aromas of red fruits and wild flowers, as found in the best rosé from Provence". We couldn't have put it better ourselves.
  9. Luis Alegre Unoaked Tempranillo - Rioja Alavesa

    Luis Alegre Unoaked Tempranillo 2016 - Rioja Alavesa

    £9.00

    £9.00

    The Joven style of Spanish red is an all too often overlooked and undervalued one. Let's not forget Spain is an essentially hot and dry country and with that heat comes the need for refreshment. With Joven you get a more mouthwatering, refreshing, unoaked style of red that, heat or not, is surprisingly versatile and incredibly meal-time friendly. This medium-bodied red is a brighter, crisper, cleaner, crunchier style of red Rioja.
  10. Luzon Crianza Seleccion Red Wine Spain

    Luzón Crianza Selección 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    They say whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger and, for Jumilla, which was one of the last wine regions to be affected by the phylloxera bug that wiped out vineyards across Europe, that is certainly the case. After getting hit in 1989, it picked itself up, planted a heap of the native Monastrell grape and went on to become a modern, exciting region.

    Bodegas Luzón, founded in 2000, is one such winery and their Crianza is an intense (owing primarily to the low yields) wine with balsamic, rosemary and liquorice hints. Pair with a goat stew and you'll feel like you've got a second wind, too.
  11. Musica en el Camino Rioja 2011

    Musica en el Camino Rioja 2012

    £10.50

    £10.50

    OK so we can't provide the keys to a brand new Chevrolet El Camino and tell you it's sitting out in your drive, waiting to be taken for a spin by yours truly, but we can provide a gorgeous bottle of red, which shares the same name. But this is no time to feel disappointed, dear customer, for we believe the decadent richness, plush velvety finish and vibrant red flavours will give you a ride that is equally as smooth and far less cheaper to run. See, aren't you glad we chose the wine instead!
  12. Noctua Ensamblaje 2014 Red Wine

    Noctua Ensamblaje 2014

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Some years ago, little could be seen of the Quinta de Aves vineyards. The vines were hidden under tumbling weeds. Abandoned by man, it was perfect for the rare night birds that inhabited the hills. The prolific vines produced more grapes than the birds could eat. So, as was their habit, they stowed them away for winter.

    And thus, one afternoon, a young winemaker was stopped in his tracks by an intoxicating scent of plum and figs. Savouring the alluring hint of vanilla, he followed his nose to an ancient old tree. The birds had stowed their crop in a hole in the trunk. But, facing the sun as the hole did, the fruit had started to ferment. Alberto couldn't resist. The liquid was out of this world. He just needed to bottle the stuff.
  13. One 1 Ribera del Duero Reserva Spanish Red

    One 1 Ribera del Duero Reserva 2012

    £13.25

    £13.25

    One can at once see why this one is called One. The definitive article. That's to say, the benchmark to which many other Spanish reds might be looking. This Ribera del Duero is deliciously full-bodied with great length and truly lovely oak character. If you have not yet visited the spectacular wines from this new darling of the Spanish regions, there's no better place to start. This one. The One. One 1 Ribera...
  14. Poco a Poco Tempranillo Red Wine

    Poco a Poco! Tempranillo 2015

    £8.50

    £8.50

    Incrementalism should be taught in schools. Poco-a-Poco is the way to go. Little by little. Such an approach would put an end to such self-deluding daftness as overnight change, New Year's resolutions, brand new starts and makeovers. Anyway, Poco a Poco is the name of this wine, and it's an apt one.

    This is bright, crisp and gorgeously pure-fruited wine and that is a particularly good thing in this case, as the fruit in question comes from Rioja but, being sold without the nametag, comes without the premium. Piece-by-piece, little-by-little, Poco-a-poco you are sure to fall for this wine.
  15. Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva, La Rioja Alta 2010

    Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva La Rioja Alta 2011

    £18.25

    £18.25

    This wine is like falling head over heels in love. It is all encompassing, completely mesmerising and totally distracting. Its beauty makes you feel slightly light-headed and its perfection gives you butterflies.

    You will wonder what you did before it came along and worry a little about what you would do if it ever left. It is complicated (red berries, oak, coconut, coffee, vanilla and savoury notes) and when it's finished you'll be heartbroken... until another comes along!
  16. Vina Amezola Rioja Reserva 2010 Red Wine

    Viña Amézola Rioja Reserva 2010

    £19.00

    £19.00

    Rioja is the ultimate comfort wine. It's like raiding the kitchen before hitting the hay.

    The trempranillio grape gives generously ripe red fuits- strawberry and cherry flavours, like the guiltily secreted dessert found at the back of the fridge. Fragrant spicy notes smell of an old book and silky textured like well worn pyjamas.

    The wine's kept in an oak barrel endowing it with soft fluffy vanilla flavours. Like a massive pillow and duvet. Night night...
  17. Vina Amezola Gran Reserva 2006 Red Wine

    Viña Amezola Gran Reserva 2006

    £32.00

    £32.00

    This Gran Reserva is a wine for when you want when you want to show a favourite film but without dramatizing things. Its leather, spicy, tobacco character is like Humphrey Bogart looking over your shoulder from his arm chair in Hollywood golden years. Classic like Clark Gable yet with fine elegance of Grace Kelly. It's a wine that carries age with poise and distinction.

    Mr Bogart once said- 'The problem with the world is that everyone is a few drinks behind'.
  18. Viña Ardanza Rioja Alta 2008

    Viña Ardanza Rioja Alta 2008

    £27.75

    £27.75

    Alta means 'high' in Spanish and, while this may actually refer to the higher aspect of La Rioja Alta, it is also very 'alta' in our estimation. We are head over heels in love with its classic wine, mellow Rioja characteristics of coconut, vanilla, hazelnut and chocolate.

    In fact, we'd say it's so 'alta' it's like drifting off on a silky, enveloping cloud of warm flavours, drifting towards the hills of Rioja. Aaaaand relax.
