  1. Domaine Condamine Syrah / Mourvedre

    Domaine Condamine Syrah/Mourvèdre 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Down in the valley. Down in the valley so low, hang your hair over your shoulder, and you can hear the four winds blow. These are words once howled by Otis Redding in a voice that's hard to forget. But there's something else down in the valley, in the Rhône Valley so low, where it opens up and meets the Côtes de Thongue: Domaine Condamine l'Evêque.

    And just as Mr Redding knows how to belt out a tune, these people know how to belt out a wine: this Syrah/Mourvèdres has mouth-watering fruit purity, balanced out by savoury complexity, decent acidity and smooth tannins. This wine got soul.
  2. Domaine Condamine Viognier White Wine

    Domaine Condamine Viognier 2016

    £12.00

    £12.00

    It's a hot day, you're meandering through the picturesque streets of Nézignan-l'Evêque. A Citroen 2CV filled with fruit, preserves and wild flora trundles past you up the hill towards the market. The driver is a little French chap, you know the sort; onions, beret, cigarette and a stripy t-shirt.

    Momentarily distracted by a passing beauty he doesn't notice the steepness of the incline and opens the boot with a flourish. Produce tumbles from the vehicle down the slope. You are buried in an avalanche of apricots, peaches, honey and flowers. That's what this wine tastes like!
  3. Domaine de Coudoulet Viognier 2015

    Domaine de Coudoulet Viognier 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Roses and red, violets are blue, try this wine when you can't afford Condrieu.' In other words, this silky white wine gives you everything you want from a Viognier - without having to sell an organ to afford the dizzying prices of the premium Condrieu.

    No kidneying around here. Plenty of peach, pineapple, honey blossom and mango flavours. Also an excellent pairing with monkfish... whilst tampering with traditional nursery rhymes.
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. Miles Mossop Saskia

    Miles Mossop 'Saskia' 2013

    £19.00

    £19.00

    This is the quintessentially artisanal produced wine, following the philosophy of winemaker Miles Mossop, of hand crafted wines with as little interference as possible, showing a purity of expression.

    We wonder if he feels the same way about raising his children, who all his wines are named after! This ode to his daughter is full of honeysuckle, white peach, lime and toasted almonds with a fairly full palate and lengthy finish. I hope Kika and Max (the other two wines) have been raised as well as Saskia!
  8. Radford Dale Black Rock 2013

    Radford Dale Black Rock 2014

    £16.50

    £16.50

    Like the addition of Peter 'Swingometer' Snow to the Beeb's election night results, Black Rock is guaranteed to make even the most memorable of nights even more memorable, with added colours, fun and general swing to proceedings.

    We're just trying to visualise what a Swingometer graphic for Black Rock would look like... we're imagining it would be fabulously purple, with blueberry-coloured bar charts adorned with sprigs of lavender and dried chilli bouquets, on a background of a mountain stream bed. Probably.
  9. Secret de Viu Manent Viognier Chilean Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Viognier 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    With an already winning reputation for super-reliable reds, it's often forgotten just how good Chilean whites are now becoming. And Viognier is a good choice for the Chileanification treatment as, in a similar way to the reds, you get ripeness that is never at odds to overall balance. And in fact this is one of the more thoughtful, restrained Viogniers on the market. Viognier of this sort will make a very versatile night in standby and food all-rounder. This is full bodied with notable floral and mineral notes and a lovely mouth-watering finish.
  10. The Milkwood Shiraz Viognier 2013 Red wine

    The Milkwood Shiraz Viognier 2014

    £8.00

    £8.00

    From the youthful Grape Grinder winery in South Africa, this fruity number does not disappoint. A fine red wine showcasing exceptional red fruit flavours, combined with touches of wild herb and floral tones to lighten and lengthen the finish.
  11. Vallegarcia 'Miriade' Viognier 2016 Spanish White Wine

    Vallegarcia 'Miriade' Viognier 2016

    £12.50

    £12.50

    Nothing could be more exhilarating than galloping along astride his beloved horse 'Miriade'. Or so Garcia thought. Until one day, cantering through the hillside scrub, a most extraordinary perfume enveloped him. Honeysuckle, blossom, exotic fruits... Only a princess could smell so alluring.

    In a trance, he followed the scent to a thicket of thorns and forced his way through. There, beyond the spiky wall, was a vineyard, dripping with grapes and lavish with scent. And then he heard a voice. A beautiful maiden, trapped since childhood. Rescued from the thorns by the astonishing fragrance. This wine celebrates their marriage, but beware. It's unlikely anyone will rescue you from its spell.
  12. Vallegarcia Viognier 2015 Spanish White Wine

    Vallegarcia Viognier 2015

    £22.00

    £22.00

    You would think growing up with no one to talk to would be lonely. But the lost princess knew no different. She'd been taken away so young she had no sense of the world beyond the thorns the witch had trapped her within. She had the birds, the creatures all to bring friendship as she grew.

    Perhaps it was because she was unspoilt that the grapes she tended grew so well. A pip, brought her by a little bird, was all she had to start. But she spent years joyfully tending the growing vines, the fragrance of which - of flower blossom, fruit baskets and honey wax - was spellbinding. Little wonder, really, that scent drew a man through the thicket to rescue her. You won't have to worry about thorns though. Just have a corkscrew to hand.
  13. Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier White Wine Australia

    Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier 2015

    £15.50

    £15.50

    We'd like to know who the clever chap or chappess was who took a cutting in 1980 of Rhone-native Viognier - an all but extinct grape variety back then - took it Down Under and planted it in the cool slopes of the Eden Valley.

    If we saw them now, we'd doff our caps, because Viognier does extraordinarily well here, producing wines like this apricot nectar, lifted honeysuckle and orange oil-tinted apricot bomb and we like them very much indeed.
