  1. Sauternes Castelnau de Suduiraut Half Bottle White Wine

    Sauternes Castelnau de Suduiraut 2008 - Half bottle - 375ml

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Château Suduiraut is an achingly beautiful, classically French Chateau, perched between the Ciron and the Garonne and it is the autumnal morning mist that rolls off these rivers that provides the perfect conditions for Noble Rot. "But wait, you were painting such a lovely picture!" you might wail, distraught. But, we reassure you, Noble Rot is Sauternes' best friend and allows it to develop the other-worldly marmalade, minerally, manuka honey flavours that make it so dearly-loved the world over. Happy ending after all, eh!

  2. Sauvion IGP Loire 2016

    Sauvion IGP Loire 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    What's your thought on nominative determinism? You know, the idea that if your surname is Baker you're statistically more likely to end up making bread for a living or if your names Cliff you'll have a seagull on your head? A lot of Rhubarb? Well check this out, the winemaker of this fantastically priced Loire is named Pierre-Jean Sauvion and guess what grape he uses... nope not Cabernet Franc... Sauvignon Blanc! With beautiful aromatics of lime, grapefruit, elderflower and steely minerality, it's clear that there's something to this determinism malarkey.

  3. Scala Dei Garnatxa 2015

    Scala Dei Garnatxa 2016

    £17.00

    £17.00

    Scala Dei is less of a wine and more of a mystical treasure out of Indiana Jones. Scala Dei ('Ladder to God') was the Priorat monastery where, in the 12th century, the newly established order of Carthusian Monks first planted vines.

    After eight centuries of lying fallow, Priorat was revived by some winemaking visionaries in the 1990s who recognised the potential of the steep terraces and licorella soil, which lends Priorat wines their famously mineral undertones.

    The low yielding vines of this small (60ha) site produce a limited number of boutique wines with exceptional complexity and fruit expression, which marries beautifully with the classic mineral streak.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere Chile Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    If you've not yet come across a bad Carmenere then there's a very simple reason for this. There aren't many. This is partly attributable to the grape itself, but more to do with the country within which it's grown.

    Chile is this country and its perfect growing conditions for this grape make it virtually organic by default for starters. This is a guarantee of the full-bodied, smooth, satisfying type of red that Carmenere is so well known for.

  7. Secret de Viu Manent Malbec Red Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Malbec 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Border-hopping Malbec from the other side of the peninsula in Chile. This is very South American anyway. Small wonder Chile too are turning their hand to this, the Argie-wonder grape; not that they need to prove much when it comes to winemaking.

    This Secret (or locally, Secreto) is Malbec very much as you picture it: Full and juicy, smooth and satisfying, and with the guaranteed trademark long, long length. Wine this good won't be much of a Secret for long.

  8. 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.

  9. Semeli Feast Red Wine Greece

    Semeli Feast Red 2016

    £9.00

    £9.00

    We love the Greeks. They're rebellious, they're warm-hearted and, more pertinently, they've been making wine there for well over 2,000 years but their wines are still virtually unheard of.

    Maybe their marketing has been a little lax over the last thousand years, but we feel change a-coming because, with wines like this cherry, berry and cedar flavoured Agioritiko (which happens to translate as St George), there'll be no stopping them.

    Sometimes you just want to turn the radio on and let somebody else make your mind up for you. You've made mind-bending decisions all day, you don't want to come home and choose between Stockhausen and Ornette Coleman. Just press a button and dig what comes out, you'll like it more than you expected.

    Like this wine, it's smooth, fruity and friendly, and it doesn't want you to beat yourself up looking for a greater profundity. There you go, 'don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy...' Perfect. You didn't even know the Eagles were so good. Everything is splendid.

    It's a happy little chappy is this wine. Like a gregarious mate, you can take it anywhere and it's guaranteed to quickly raise a smile with its easy charm and its bright, sunny character, full of the blissful Californian sun. Its ripe yellow plum and cantaloupe melon flavours would buddy up easily with a spicy vegetable stir-fry, ideally with a bunch of old friends, a comfy sofa and a Shirley Valentine DVD.

  13. Simon Hackett Old Vine Grenache Red Wine

    Simon Hackett Old Vine Grenache 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Hey, where d'you think you're going? Why not stick around a while? Yeah, I know, there are only two of us here, just me and my right hand man and some pumps and fermenters and whatever, and OK, the place is kinda small, but hey, just have a glass of this wine. Yeah, that's right, it's nice.

    In fact I'd say it was kinda velvety, ripe red fruit, a lot goin' on, mmm...y'know why? It's because those old vines out there have stuck around as well, and the older the vine, the more complex the wine. Usually. Those vines were pretty old when I pitched up here in 1984. What's that? Another glass? Now you're seein' sense...

  14. Sole Shiraz Feteasca Neagra

    Sole Shiraz Fetească Neagră 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Bucharest born Henri Coanda invented the jet engine in 1910. Now the jet engine has done some handy things, but what's most imprtant to us is it got wine makers get off their bottoms and visit lots of other producers.

    This red is one such beneficary of steel canary riding wine makers (See winery information below). It's a blend of the international grape Shiraz and local Romanian Feteasca Neagra. Propelled by cherry, wild strawberry and cranberry flavours. Fuelled by smooth tannin and fresh acidity. It's a wine that rockets far beyond the usual plane* fare.

    *All puns intended.

  15. Stanton and Killeen Rutherglen Muscat NV - Half Bottle - 375ml

    Stanton and Killeen Rutherglen Muscat NV - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £14.00

    £14.00

    You are what you eat, so the saying goes. And this is manifestly true in Stanton and Killeen's achingly delicious Rutherglen Muscat.

    What does the wine 'eat'? It eats up the hot Australian sun, the time-honoured techniques maintained by this family-run winery and it gobbles up the love they put into it. The result? A raisin-rich, nutty, orange blossom and lavender-flavoured amber nectar.

  16. Stefanini Soave DOC Il Selese

    Stefanini Soave DOC Il Selese 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Stefanini Soave is made from the Garganega grape. the regions indegeous varietal. The colour of the wine is straw yellow with greenish reflections. On the nose it is delicate and flowery, with notes of elderberry and hawthorn, together with juicy sensations of ripe peach, apricot and tropical fruits. It gracefully reveals the typical white flowers and almond mark of the Garganega variety. On the palate it is dry, medium-bodied and smooth with a pleasant long mineral finish.

    In ancient times France was called Gaul. Here Celtic tribes happily lived and enjoyed wine. Then came the Romans, who fancied making wine there. After some very bloody military defeats the tribes banned wine drinking and massacred the poor, local wine merchants- as the wine was blamed for their defeats on the field. This gives rise to the term ' Gauling'. Eventually this led the Celts to turn this most gauling situation to their advantage and make the best wine in the empire. If you were a thirsty Roman or Celt this is the kind of red you'd find in their taverns. Robust, black fruits, faintly leathery and spicy. A drink to settle the most vehment wine wrangling.

  18. Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Graciano Rosé 2016

    Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Graciano Rosé 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Hear the word 'tandem' and you'll think: two lovers (or maybe just good friends), pedalling together on a bicycle made for two. But in Spanish 'tandem' means "at last!" And while the winemaking team would love you to believe 'tandem' refers to the realisation (at last) of their dream to make such a chilled-out wine, it actually refers to the phrase often exclaimed at the end of the day when the bottle is finally lifted from the fridge.

    Casual, ha! These rose-flower aromas, clipped flavours of forest berries, and hints of sun-kissed red cherry don't happen by accident. It's exhausting, making something this perfectly laid back! Of course, enjoying it is far easier...

  19. Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Red 2016 Red Wine

    Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Red 2016

    Traditionally, Navarran winemakers wore formal clothing. Worsted trousers, thick cotton shirts, a waistcoat and jacket. Women or men! Given the blistering summers, it made work horrendous. Indeed, for decades, the wines of the region were recognisable through their slight briney edge, put down to the distant influence of Atlantic breezes by those unaware of the truth.

    The uncomfortable tradition persisted until one brutally hot year when levels of perspiration among the crew were such the wines this time were ruined. Disaster. But finally the old costume was abandoned. At the news, workers celebrated by cracking into a barrel of mountain Garnacha as vibrant and expressive as the clothes they were free to choose, at last! Or 'Tandem!' as they say in Spain. You can enjoy it wearing whatever you want!

    £9.50

    If you have a raw talent, let it shine. That's what we say. Subo had a talent, she let it shine: some would say the world's better for it. Likewise David Blaine: he knew he could sit in boxes and stuff to get people's attention and he did. Fair play.

    The producers of Tannu have recognised the raw talent of their Sicilian grapes, and know that they needn't taint them with pesticides, fertilisers or fancy techniques to make great wines: they know that, left to their own devices, the grapes produce flipping lovely, crisp, lemon and pineapple-scented beauties, just like this one. They are so right. Let it shine people, let it shine.

  21. Tannu Rosso Di Sicilia IGT Italian Wine

    Tannu Rosso Di Sicilia 2015

    £9.50

    £9.50

    This red is almost Tardis-like in its ability to transport its owner between worlds. Mercifully, unlike the Tardis, its layers of juicy black cherry, mocha and spice are highly unlikely to take you to a parallel universe with intergalactic aggressors but, instead, to the heavenly hills of Sicily, at an al fresco table with a view over the harbour.

    We say 'highly unlikely' but you never know. That's the risk you take with this wine.

  22. Taylors Quinta de Vargellas Port 2002

    Taylors Quinta de Vargellas Port 2002

    Now £29.00

    Was £33.00

    £29.00

    Quinta de Vargellas has gone through some changes over the years, the vineyards date back to 1820 when the wines were sold to the English market. After the vineyards were devastated by the phylloxera disease in the 1880s, a couple of blokes armed with faith and dedication decided to attempt to rebuild these vineyards.

    Now, the Vargellas vineyards produce sophisticated Ports from vines up to 75 years old, with a focus on sustainability. The 2002 vintage is particularly intense, with rich raisin-y fruit and lots of sweet spices. We say thank you, Taylor Fladgate and Yeatman, for having faith and slogging it out.

  23. Tenuta Chiccheri Valpolicella

    Tenuta Chiccheri Valpolicella 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    You couldn't make up some of the things people did before joining the wine trade. Troilus Hoplite-Gryppe, head of Kent's Bunceworth winery, was initially sent to the vineyard aged 26 by the DWP, on a work experience program. Wine blogger Fintan O'nions had a previous job writing farming reports, and fondly remembers his favourite: "the Herdwick ewe has just been tupped by a Bluefaced Leicester ram." Similarly, Giancarlo Ruffo had specialised in floor cleaning machines before purchasing a country retreat in Tregnago, where the idyllic country life turned his head to the delights of winemaking. And this joyous, youthful, perfumed, licorice-textured cherry delight proves that he's cleaned up once again!

  24. Tenuta Chiccheri Valpolicella Superiore 2010

    Tenuta Chiccheri Valpolicella Superiore 2010

    £33.00

    £33.00

    When we tell you that Valpolicella is made using dried-up grapes left for ages in a box, it doesn't sound very nice, does it? But hear us out. When they are left to dry in this temperature- and humidity-controlled environment, they acquire a delicious raisin-y quality. It's rich and concentrated like Amarone, but Valpolicella has more elegance and finesse. With Valpolicella it's all about balancing the red berry, spice and sweetness and this one is something of a diplomat, and strikes that balance perfectly.

  25. Tenuta Vigneto Di Campo Delle Strie Amarone Della Valpolicella

    Tenuta Vigneto di Campo delle Strie Amarone della Valpolicella 2010

    £55.00

    £55.00

    For most mortals, tasting a bottle of Amarone, especially one of this calibre, is a bit like how we imagine the Springwatch team would feel if Sir David Attenborough just strolled on set. You don't quite know how to approach it and feel like you should probably bow or kneel down and offer to be its humble servant from here on in.

    But don't stand on ceremony: this wine is a real joy. It has bright red fruit, rich treacle, warm spice and sweet tobacco on the palate, with enough refreshing acidity to leave your palate begging for more.

  26. Terra Noble Carménère 2015

    Terra Noble Carmenere 2015

    £7.50

    £7.50

    A while ago, a French winemaker was visiting Chile's vineyards. Striding imperiously through the vineyards and inspecting some grapes he declared 'No you peasants, this is not Merlot'.

    It was an old Bordeaux red grape variety called Carménère. In fact, Chile had thus far been bottling this grape and labelling it as Merlot. The visitor strode off into the sunset feeling very smug indeed, but Chilean winemakers had the last laugh.

    Carménère is a beautiful wine in its own right. It's full bodied, jam packed with raspberry and chocolate flavours and slightly spicy on the finish. It's since become one of this nation's most successful red wines and now a signature grape variety.

  27. Terra Noble Merlot Red Wine

    Terra Noble Merlot 2015

    £7.50

    It's already been a long day. Crawling through the strata of humanity, its voices buzzing through the electric wires, erupting onto screens, springing out of the phone lines or flashing up on texts. I dream of the couch, a movie and a glass of wine. I'm definitely dropping into the shop for a Merlot on the way home tonight!

  28. Terra Noble Reserva Syrah 2014

    Terra Noble Reserva Syrah 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    Combine Clint Eastwood's character in the seminal western 'Pale Rider' and pair it with the West African proverb: "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far." That embodies what Syrah can be like.

    This Syrah straddles the two personalities of this grape variety and the film's protagonist 'The Preacher' - sometimes brooding, dark and softly spoken. Other times a spray of bullets packed with explosive fruits, horse leather and loaded with cracked pepper and spice. Fantastic wine! Mr Eastwood's film is pretty good too.

  29. Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £7.50

    £7.50

    David 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.

    If Chardonnay was an animal it would be a household cat. Some people adore cats, others are a bit cautious around them. But once you've spent time with this friendly feline you'll fall for her winning warmth.

    Curled up on an oak barrel, lapping up cream or sunning herself by fragrant fruit trees. This wine is certainly a tabby cat. Warm and friendly. Never in a hurry to go anywhere except to go with food. All fur, no claws and absolutely determined to charm.

    When the Spanish set out for Argentina they took cattle with them. Little did they know the climate would affect the animals, filling them with wanderlust and energy. A dangerous combination, even for a cow.

    In no time, a good number of beasts had escaped, and under a general spell of romance – this was the country of tango after all – made many, many more beasts. Soon, huge herds roamed the pampas. And with livestock comes dung. So much dung, in fact, that the very pH of the soil was altered*. Happily, however, the resulting soil was perfect for growing Malbec, like this moo-tiful, example.

    *This might be a load of bull.

    Willy Wonka went to great lengths to produce Magic Hand-Fudge, which "when you hold it in your hand, you taste it in your mouth". To be honest Boekenhoutskloof make it look easy, we can literally taste the Chocolate Block as soon as we start unloading it from the trucks.

    The Garden Route Chardonnay Chenin Blanc 2016

    £5.75

    £5.75

    Sometimes, there are so many nuances in a glass of wine words fail to describe it. Yes, you could reach for the usual characteristics. 'Dry, refreshing, mouth-watering.' The usual 'apples, tropical fruits and pears.' But, frankly, that's lazy. Sometimes, a wine has you beat.

    Like this one! On first tasting there was awkward silence, broken only by thoughtful 'hmmms' and frustrated sniffs. Until, finally, a voice piped up: "It's fine boss!" Now, he meant 'fine boss.' But the boss heard 'Fynbos', the beautiful heathland associated with South Africa's famous Garden Route. Few places on Earth have such diversity! (Any glass with this wine in it being one). And so, the name was set.

  35. The Kauri Tree Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Was £10.00

    £8.00

    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.

    Antonio Flores Pedregosa is truly the nabob, the poo-bah, even the muckety-muck of Tio Pepe, one of the most esteemed wine blenders in the whole of Jerez. His father preceded him at the helm of the operation, and he grew up with Tio Pepe, he lived and breathed Tio Pepe, he was born and even conceived at the Tio Pepe winery. From an early age, then, he wanted nothing more than to be a journalist. Oh. Well, journalism's loss is our gain and instead of articles we have news of this delightful, almond-tinged, yeasty and piquant dry sherry.

    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.

  39. Tupari Late Harvest Riesling 2014 New Zealand White Wine

    Tupari Late Harvest Riesling 2014

    £17.75

    £17.75

    Once upon a time, Riesling was the Germanyist of German grapes, in all of Germany. Storming down the Autobahn in a black Mercedes-Benz, with a glove compartment full of Bratwurst, yelling 'Schnell' at poor Dutch tourists toddling a long at a mere 98mph. It's much more international now. Look at wines such as this, a classic late harvest Riesling, yet influenced by the terroir of New Zealand. Don't get us wrong, Riesling's still German, it's just a more modern German, the international jetsetter that refers to his mobile as "mein handy." We love you Riesling, whatever beautiful place you're grown in, never forget your roots!

    Sitting high upon the cliffs in the Awatere Valley in Marlborough, this wine seems to have taken on the grandeur and liberty of its surroundings. With its bright flavours and pronounced body, you can almost hear the gulls crying out as the waves pound the rocks below. It has been made with passion and expertise, at a tiny, family-run enterprise that has made full use of this exceptional terror to produce an invigorating wine. With towering stone fruit and fresh celery notes, it is a dramatic match for sea fare like Crayfish (if you can clamber down the cliffs to catch it that is).

    If you're a grape, looking for an ideal home, it's a case of location location location. The best locations will suit your climate-, altitude- and soil-based needs and be blessed with talented winemakers who know who understand you.

    The Riesling grapes in the Awatere Valley, NZ, have the ideal neighbourhood: they have lots of sunshine but particularly cool nights, so they don't get too hot, which means that have time to develop complex flavours of ripe limes and grapefruit with riverbed freshness.

    Proof that it's worth hunting before putting down roots...

    X marks the spot. The X Factor. Bacon and X. You can be sure that anything with an X in it is going to be a bit special, right? Even so, you probably won't quite be ready for a fresh, crisp white like this.

    This wine is Txakoli, and until recently, the Basque locals kept it all to themselves. They claimed they made 'only enough for the home'. X-tremely selfish, we thought. But finally, it's X-ported. Ever so slightly sparkling with a prickle of fizz; very very dry; and a civilised 11.5% alcohol. Making it the perfect option for a picnic lunch. Or Basque-ing in the afternoon sunshine.

  43. Tydy Sauvignon Blanc French White Wine

    Tydy Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £9.50

    £9.50

    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.

  44. Umani Ronchi Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2015 Italian Red Wine

    Umani Ronchi Montepulciano D'Abruzzo 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    Set against the picturesque Italian vineyards of Cupramontana, a powerful tale of age-old traditions and ancient lands emerges. Riddled with romance, scandal, betrayal, revenge, dynasties and lots and lots of... plums. Plums being our protagonist in what you'd be forgiven for thinking was the start of a good old Marian Keyes novel.

    Instead, this is the tale of Umani Ronchi, winemaking extraordinaire producing a medium bodied red wine, jam-packed with...you guessed it, ripe plummy fruit flavours. There's nothing fictional about this wine. It's a fact that it's of excellent quality and it provides one hell of a happy ending.

  45. Verdicchio Classico Casal di Serra 2016 Italian White Wine

    The court at Cupramonta once employed a veritable troop of servants whose only job was to peel grapes for the indulgently demanding Contessa. And why not? It provided a wage to many a serf, and other than being slightly tiring for the fingers, wasn't really taxing.

    But things change, and sadly economic pressures forced the court to 'downsize'. The peelers had to go. The Contessa was furious, until one of the smart advisors persuaded her there was an even more effortless way to enjoy the peachy, appley loveliness of her favourite fruit. One that didn't even require her to chew. Just sip. The Contessa was delighted. She's even been known to open the bottle herself, sometimes.

  46. Valentini Monteregio Vivoli 2013

    Valentini Monteregio Vivoli 2013

    £18.50

    £18.50

    The Valentini winery is one of the oldest in all of Italy. Old enough to have hieroglyphs on their label. Let's just be clear the hieroglyphs are a stylistic choice, the winery does not predate written language... nor does it come from Egypt. Nope, this is a pictorial representation of Homer's epic "Odysseus." The moment Odysseus distracts an angry giant with some delicious wine, then stabs him in the eye with a wooden spear. A bit aggressive but the giant was trying to eat him. We're not sure what the hieroglyph for 'awesome' is but if we did, we'd whack it on the bottle!

    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.

  48. Vallegarcia Viognier 2015 Spanish White Wine

    Vallegarcia Viognier 2015

    £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.
