  1. Robert Oatley Vineyards 'Signature Series' Shiraz

    Robert Oatley Vineyards Signature Series Shiraz 2014

    £13.50

    £13.50

    ***Bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    Only a fifth of the wineries in James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2012 were awarded five stars. Last year, James employed a novel judging criteria, in which he made producers perform “I’m a little tea pot”, deducting points and taking pot shots at them with a Black Widow slingshot if the performance displeased him. Robert Oatley is said to have given an Oscar-worthy rendition. We think his winery deserved its five stars even without the singing and dancing. This Shiraz is proof.
  2. Roche de Bellene 'Bellenos' Rosé 2016

    Roche de Bellene 'Bellenos' Rosé 2016

    £12.50

    £12.50

    Legend has it that to place one's hand on the fabled Rock of Bellene is to know more of the world. It's subtle, let's say that. Rest your palm on the ancient carved symbols, and you'll feel a shift. Nothing major. Hardly tangible. Then you have to wait. The world comes more alive. Your senses sharpen. Things will have more colour.

    It was painstaking, but Nicolas pressed every grape that went into his rose to the carving, intrigued as to how it would enhance the wine. Now, only you can decide. Take a sip. Just a wine, right? But that fresh scent of herbs after early dew. The hint of cut strawberries. Peaches ripening in morning sun... Only a wine? Are you sure?
  3. Rogers & Rufus Rosé Wine

    Rogers & Rufus Rosé 2016

    Now £11.25

    Was £12.50

    £11.25

    There is a remarkable amount of stereotypes that grow up like weeds around what we drink. Rosé suffers from labels like 'summery' or 'girlie' and crap like that. A wine like this one deserves to stand free of such boring and dated imagery. Can't a wine stand on its own two flavoursome feet? This rosé doesn't wear high heels, it's got a pair of trainers on. The kind you wear on your day off when all the work is done and it's time for a glass of something crisp and refreshing!
  4. Rosso di Montalcino Quercecchio Red Wine

    Rosso di Montalcino Quercecchio 2014

    £16.00

    £16.00

    What did you want to be, when you grew up? We wanted to be a wine shop, see; no regrets. Some would suggest that when this wine grows up it should be a Brunello, as in many respects it is a baby Brunello di Montalcino. I say pish, this wine has such youthful red fruit based flair and floral charm it can be whatever it damn wants to be; a pasta chef? a defender for Juventus? One of the Mario brothers? Whatever, you get out there and give 'em hell kid!
  5. Ségla Margaux French Wine

    Ségla Margaux 2009

    £40.00

    £40.00

    Château Rauzan-Ségla has an incredibly long and colourful history, dating back to 1661 and featuring Very Important Families, tragedy, intrigue and, latterly, a brilliant renaissance, spearheaded by the new owners at Chanel. They have lovingly restored the Château to its former glory and have installed new equipment and even bottle Ségla - their second wine - with a screwcap. They strike a great balance between tradition and modernity and this structured, poised, tight and intense wine is testament to that.
  6. Saint Clair Pioneer Block 14 Pinot Noir

    Saint Clair Pioneer Block 14 Pinot Noir 2015

    £21.00

    £21.00

    'What you saying? Your back's bent, your knees are nuked and you keep getting up to visit the loo in the dead of night? Well you can take that whingeing to your GP, but my name is Doctor Feelgood and I know what you need! And believe me, daddio, what you need is to fix yourself to this big-scented Pinot Noir, from deep down in Doctor's Creek, Marlborough.

    It perks you right up of red fruits, blackcurrants and spice and which has a finish that'll still be there after the last of your hair has gone grey, you with me? It don't have none of that 'proven medical value' stuff, but it'll remind you that there's a lot of beauty going down on this big old ball of rock and that's all you need, maaan'.
  7. 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.
  8. Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2014

    Saint Clair Vicar's Choice Pinot Noir 2015

    £16.00

    £16.00

    The ridonculously talented Matt Thompson, at Saint Clair, featured on one of our 'Inspire-themed posters, saying 'I became a winemaker because, as a wine drinker, I needed to find a way to make it tax-deductible'. We like his style.

    But, when he made this red, he didn't just get a tax break on Pinot Noir, he created something beautiful: a gentle giant, with mellow Morello cherry, pine needles and hints of smoke. Take that, taxman!
  9. 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...
  10. Salena Organic Cabernet Sauvignon

    Salena Organic Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    £10.00

    £10.00

    The Brits call em Wellingtons. The Aussies call em gumboots. Either way this wine wears a big pair of these at all times. Even in the bath. Big bold blackcurrants walk right up and boot in your front door...in an over enthusiastic wine descriptive kinda way though, not in a scary door thumping kinda way.

    But there is a gentle side with a subtle, waxy eucalyptus note on the finish. Could there be a little essential oil in that bath Mr Cabernet?
  11. Salena Overland Petit Verdot Red Wine

    Salena Overland Petit Verdot 2014

    £10.00

    £10.00

    A cracking Australian red that's somewhat of a trampoline (or sling shot?)! Firstly, get ready to be plunged into layers of velvety forest fruit & black cherries. Then bounce back into fresh bracing acidity, tart violets and spices. A brilliant red wine. Just mind where you aim that thing ok?
  12. Salice Salentino Borgo dei Trulli 2013

    Salice Salentino Borgo dei Trulli 2013

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Salice Salentino is perfect with hard cheese. What kind of hard cheese? The hard rock kind of cheese of course. In the shower singing to Final Countdown by Europe. Jumping into a time machine to see a live gig of White Snake at the height of their plectrum powers. Or running around the block with Eye of The Tiger providing your very own exercise montage. Phew...after all that it must be time for a glass of this Salice Salento. Intense, elegant, earthy aromas of blackcurrants, candy coloured guitars, white pepper and spices. The palate is full-bodied, with wide shoulder pads, velvety and rich, with soft focus tannins and a long and persistent spandex finish. WE BUILT THIS CITY ON A CHEESY ROLL!
  13. Salice Salentino Terra di Sava 2011

    Salice Salentino Terra di Sava 2011

    £10.50

    £10.50

    1976; what a year. The first commercial Concorde flight, Microsoft and Apple were created, Viking 1 landed on Mars, "Rocky" won best picture, Olympic legend Chris Hoy was born (however so was Sabrina, The Teenage Witch star Melissa Joan Hart) and the cracking Salice Salentino wines from Puglia received DOC status.

    It was a lot to pack in, but it was a leap year so we guess they had an extra day. Relive '76 with a glass of Oddbins exclusive Terre di Sava's "Nero" Salice Salentino and a bit of Bohemian Rhapsody.
  14. 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.
  15. Salomon Groovey Grüner Veltliner Austrian White Wine

    Salomon Groovey Gruner Veltliner 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Once in while a wine comes along whose anonymity sells it to those who want to be drinking something that no one else is drinking. Now this doesn't always guarantee a good wine but in this case we have an absolute winner.

    Characterised by its own hallmark style but still crisp, dry, fruity and approachable this is a wine with really remarkable appeal. A dry white with that lovely hard-to-grasp balance that every white drinker wants. This fish deserves a bigger pond!
  16. 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.
  17. Sancerre Rosé Etienne de Loury

    Sancerre Rosé Etienne de Loury 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Deceptively delicate, Etienne de Loury's Sancerre Rosé will blow you clean away with its concentrated, clean red fruits and fresh-as-a-daisy, morning dew-esque minerality.

    What was it Muhammed Ali said? 'Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee'? Well this doesn't sting like a bee, rather it does a double somersault with a half twist up to you and, instead of knocking you out, lands a delicate kiss on your forehead. Lovely.
  18. Sandeman LBV

    Sandeman LBV Port 2011

    £16.75

    £16.75

    Quandries over the many LBV Ports on the market will no doubt leave you needing a glass of...well, LBV Port. But be assured that Sandeman's version is no flash in the pan, no fair-weather friend, oh no... These guys have been going for more than 200 years and, in 1805, became the first Port company to brand a cask with an iron brand, giving the wine a guarantee of quality. That quality has continued through the ages and is manifest in this surprisingly bright, red and blackcurrant knock-out Late Bottled Vintage Port.
  19. Sandeman Vau Vintage 1999

    Sandeman Vau Vintage 1999

    £26.50

    £26.50

    One in a long list of alternative Port styles that offer those who can't wait, or can't afford, the chance to sample a piece of something special.

    This is considered Sandeman's second label in a declared vintage year, and unlike their straight-up vintage, this in-between Port style can be enjoyed now or after ageing. Rich, juicy, intense and sweet, if you're looking for a memorable Port for a memorable evening, we can certainly Vau-ch for this!
  20. Sassicaia 2014 Red Wine

    Sassicaia 2014

    £145.00

    £145.00

    Its creator, Mario Incisa Della Rochetta, first made the pioneering decision to plant cabernet sauvignon here in the 1940s. Although cultivating cabernet in Italy was almost unheard of, Mario was a great claret fan, and he realised that the climate and soils of Bordeaux were similar to those of part of his estate. Using grafts from Château Lafite, he planted the vines by the family fortress, where they would be protected from the sea breezes.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere Chile Wine

    Secret de Viu Manent Carmenere 2014

    £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.
  25. 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.
  26. 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.
  27. Semeli Feast Red Wine Greece

    Semeli Feast Red 2015

    £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.
  28. Serabel Côtes du Rhône French Wine

    Serabel Côtes du Rhône 2014

    £9.00

    £9.00

    Everything that Cave de Monterail - the tiny negociants who produce this wine - is geared towards offering outstanding value Côtes du Rhône. They have a very small, highly-skilled winemaking team who self-flagellate if their bosses catch them doing anything inefficiently.

    Er, sorry, what? No, that’s not actually true.

    But their attention to detail and outstanding skillzz have yielded a compact little spice-box of a wine that is liberally endowed with rich, black fruit and bright tannins. No self-flagellation was involved in the making of this wine.
  29. Sierra Creek Red NV American Wine

    Sierra Creek Red NV

    Now £6.08

    Was £6.75

    £6.08

    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.
  30. Sierra Creek White Wine NV USA

    Sierra Creek White NV

    Now £6.08

    Was £6.75

    £6.08

    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.
  31. Sierra Creek White Zinfandel Rose NV

    Sierra Creek White Zinfandel Rosé NV

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Everyone is guilty of a little white lie now and then. Zimilarly, how many of uz don't commit the odd zin? But maybe it all dependz on intention. It might juzt be mizchief, or joie de vivre; or perhapz you do it to make zomeone feel better. But iz there really any harm in it?

    Of courze, big zins are different. Dark and intenze, they can often leave a bitter tazte in the mouth. Rezt azzured, though, no one iz going to hold it againzt you if you zuccumb now and then to a little white zin. Or, zhould we zay a little pink zin, perhapz?
  32. 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.
  33. Southern Right Pinotage South African Red

    Southern Right Pinotage 2016

    £15.50

    £15.50

    This wine has a very strong sense of place, which shines through when you drink it. Firstly, Pinotage is a classic flag-bearing wine for South Africa and, secondly, it is named after the majestic Southern Right Whale, that lives exclusively in the southern oceans. Basically if this was a game of Guess Who, this would be a pretty easy guess. And, with such a strong identity, what does it taste like? Soft, supple, gamey, with a firm, balanced structure and drenched in ripe berry flavours: the perfect Pinotage.
  34. 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.
  35. 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.
  36. Syrah 'Collines Rhodaniennes' 2015

    Syrah 'Collines Rhodaniennes' 2015

    Now £10.35

    Was £11.50

    £10.35

    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.
  37. Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Graciano Rosé 2016

    Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Graciano Rosé 2016

    Now £9.00

    Was £10.00

    £9.00

    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...
  38. Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Red 2016 Red Wine

    Tandem 'Casual' Garnacha Red 2016

    £11.50

    £11.50

    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!
  39. Tannu Bianco Di Sicilia IGT Italian White Wine

    Tannu Bianco di Sicilia IGT 2014

    £9.50

    £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.
  40. Tannu Rosso Di Sicilia IGT Italian Wine

    Tannu Rosso Di Sicilia 2014

    £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.
  41. Tapiz Bonarda 2014

    Tapiz Bonarda 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    If you've ever climbed Ben Nevis or Snowdon, then their summits are around the height that you'll find the Bonarda grapes that go into this wine. However, these vines are in the Uco Valley in Argentina and the combined altitude, latitude create a wine that is both ripe and fresh, bold and soft.

    Originating from southeast France, Bonarda is also planted in California (where it is known as Charbono) and in Jura, where it is known as Corbeau. So it's travelled a fair bit, but it seems it's found a home from home in the foothills of the Andes.
  42. 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!
  43. 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.

    Terra Noble Carmenere 2015

    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.

    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.

    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!
  47. 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.
  48. Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Terra Noble Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    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.
