  1. Domaine Schistes Cuvée Tradition 2011

    Domaine Schistes Cuvée Tradition 2011 *WEB EXCLUSIVE*

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Addressing ourselves to the obscure Lledoner Pelut grape that makes up most of this wine* In the words of David Bowie, 'Little wonder / You little wonder, you'. Seriously though, where have you been all our lives? Everybody knows and loves your cousin, Grenache, but why you've had your light under a bushel for so long, we don't know. With your soft, downy skin, petite body and capacity to make darkly spicy, juicy belters like this, we want more of you in our lives.
  2. Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Rose Cotes de Provence Wine France

    Domaines Ott Clos Mireille Rosé 2015

    £37.00

    £37.00

    A premium pale pink robe with eglantine highlights. On the nose are mourvèdre aromas and notes of citrus fruit, as well as very fresh touches of liquorice. On the palate there is a fine balance between freshness and liveliness, with aromas of white fleshy fruits. It is typified by a sharp texture - fresh, silky and long-lasting.
  3. Domingo Molina Malbec 2012

    Domingo Molina Malbec 2014

    £18.00

    £18.00

    Sometimes we wish we had more than words with which to convey our wines to you. If we could, we'd take you into a saddlery, clad you in the softest purple velvet and then crush some freshly-picked red cherries, blackberries in a pestle and mortar, add a twist of schezuan pepper and present it to you, saying "this. This is what you are buying if you buy this wine." We have to sadly accept the reality that we can't do that, but we hope you get the picture.
  4. Donnafugata Anthilia 2014 white wine

    Donnafugata Anthilia 2014

    £13.50

    £13.50

    Donnafugata means 'fleeing woman'; a reference to Queen Maria Carolina, who escaped to Sicily during the French Revolution. This survival spirit continued at Donnafugata, where, as sales of Marsala started to drop off in Marsala, they began making top quality 'table' wines instead. Championing local grapes such as Catarratto and Ansonica - which appear alongside Viognier and Chardonnay in this white - they are total pros at coaxing out grape characteristics. With summery fragrances of Mediterranean vegetation, mingling with jasmine notes and peachy fruit, we're sure glad they survived to make Anthilia.
  5. 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!
  6. Dourthe Croix des Bouquets Graves 2015 White Wine

    Dourthe Croix des Bouquets Graves Blanc 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Nobody thought Pierre could actually tell which grapes had gone into any given wine just by using his nose. But that is what he boasted. Down to the very vine the grapes that made it came from.

    To throw him off the scent, sceptical colleagues mixed together crisp, grassy Sauvignon and citrussy Semillon and presented Pierre with two buckets, challenging him to tell them which was which. After a few sniffs, Pierre looked at them contemptuously and said with a Gallic shrug: 'Ha! You crossed the buckets!' They drank the mixture anyway. The blend was so delicious they continue to make it today, using only Pierre's nose to finalise the exact percentage of each batch.
  7. Dry by Tokaj 2013 Hungarian White Wine

    Dry by Tokaj 2013

    £12.50

    £12.50

    There are two 'wowzer' elements to this white. Firstly, it's Hungarian, which is as rare as hen's teeth on UK wine shelves. Secondly, it's a dry version of the world-renowned amber nectar that is Tokaj dessert wine.

    The grape in question - Furmint - is usually left to go mouldy and 'botritise', which concentrates the sugars. But what happens if you don't let the wine go mouldy and you make a dry wine in the usual fashion?

    Well, Dry Furmint is a new phenomenon and we are happy to say that Dry by Tokaj is leading the way with this crisp, mineral, quince and orange blossom firecracker.
  8. Dry Riesling Bergrettung Trocken Mosel White Wine Germany

    Dry Riesling Bergrettung Trocken Mosel 2014

    £17.50

    £17.50

    This wine has a fantastic story. It comes from a collaboration between 10 wineries to save historic vineyards in particularly steep sites in Germany's beautiful Mosel Valley. The group's name, Bergrettung, takes its name from Berg (= mountain) and Rettung (= rescue). This vintage was made at the Staffelter Hof winery, whose owners trace back directly to Carl the Great and who founded Bergrettung. The wine? Impressively pure and super concentrated, this essentially dry Riesling balances pronounced wet slate minerality, with a zesty, acidic core and fantastic lime, mango and white peach fruit.
  9. Duas Quintas Portuguese Red

    Duas Quintas 2014

    £13.50

    £13.50

    We have a recipe for you. Take one world famous Port house (Ramos Pinto) and one incredibly prestigious Champagne producer (Louis Roederer). Add two very different vineyards in the Douro Valley, one hot, one cool. Stir in an even mix of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and simmer gently in the Portuguese sunshine. Transfer part to French oak barrels and leave to relax for at least 12 months. The result is Duas Quintas. A red wine served heaped with praise and seasoned with medals and scores of 90/100.
  10. El Puno Garnacha 2011

    El Puno Garnacha 2011

    £21.00

    £21.00

    This wine makes us want to do star jumps and cartwheels for joy, as it represents so much of what is exciting about Spanish wine. First off, it comes from Calatayud - a lesser-known wine region whose quality, like the rest of the Aragon region, has improved in leaps and bounds over the past couple of decades. Secondly, it is made by the vinicultural wizard that is Norrel Robertson MW. Scotsman Norrel has been making wine in Spain for 12 years and has qualifications and accolades coming out of his ears. No surprise, then, that this Garnacha, made with grapes from old vines (giving concentration), using local yeasts for fermentation (which suit the local grapes) and lightly-toasted re-used French Oak barrels (lets the wine's crushed violets and black cherry flavours shine), is an absolute belter.
  11. 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.
  12. Emiliana Natura Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Red Wine

    Emiliana Natura Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Cabernet Sauvignon was the envy of everyone at the gym. Trim, tight tannins and deep, dark fleshed fruit meant this grape could effortlessly move to the music and the trainer's every demand. Invigorated with dynamic characters of blackcurrant, plums, damson and mint, Pinot Noir and pal Syrah could only jealously glare; they simply couldn't compete with Cab's limitless fitness and grace.
  13. Emiliana Natura Carménère 2015 Red Wine

    Emiliana Natura Carmenere 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Carménére is the beautiful stranger that was always there. This enigmatic red grape came from out of nowhere a few decades back and stayed to haunt peoples tastes and memory. Its distinct red fruits, full body and herbal flavours are that intriguing character you met at dinner the other night. The old school friend you found by chance at the bar. Or the interesting traveller you blundered into on the train. You just never noticed Carménére before, until now.
  14. Emiliana Natura Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Chilean White Wine

    Emiliana Natura Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Rick Blaine may claim he went to Casablanca for the waters, but we're pretty sure he would have been much less disappointed if someone had informed him of all the amazing wines made there instead. After all, we don't know about any waters that will give you zesty lime aromas and crunchy fruit flavours like this lively and zippy Sauvignon Blanc does.

    Move the gin aside, Rick, and forget about Ilsa. It's about time you set your sights on a new love and there's a new girl in town; Emiliana.
  15. Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 2015 White Wine

    Erdener Treppchen Riesling Spatlese 2015

    £18.00

    £18.00

    Erden is a village on the banks of the Mosel river. Treppchen literally means staircase, and refers to the terrace steps cut into the precipitous slopes of the valley opposite, on which the good people of Erden cultivate some of the finest Riesling grapes to be found anywhere in the World.

    And the wine they make from it is proper Riesling. Full of exotic floral and fruit aromas, a heady whiff of petroleum and, yes, sweetness, too. This is proper Riesling, the way it should be. Wine for grown ups.
  16. Eszenia Old Vine Garnacha Aragón Organic 2015

    Esenzia Old Vine Garnacha Aragón Organic 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    Why are we always trying to defy Father Time? After all, old vines make better wines. Just as old heads have more wisdom, old vines have more character. They might be gnarled and bent, but that doesn't mean they can't make bright and youthful wine. Each grape is a fresh new thing. Just as ideas are. And minds with a little more mileage often have the best ideas.

    So! Let's agree. Experience makes things better, as long as you keep a sense of play. Then you can enjoy getting older, like the more senior vines behind this wine. Complex, but brimming with a youthful essence. We can't guarantee drinking it will keep you young, but then, you wouldn't be allowed to drink it if you were!
  17. Eternum Viti Toro 2013

    Eternum Viti Toro 2013

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Eternum Viti Toro or "Eternal Viti Toro," of course referencing the formation of the 12th Century fountain of youth in Toro, north of Madrid. Historians of Medieval Spain largely agree that the fountain formed when a drug corporation dumped a large amount of waste multivitamins or "Viti" in the river Douro. Since then, the men and women of Toro have been damn attractive well into their 70s & their wine has never gone bad. This is why Columbus took Toro wines to discover America, or India or wherever that dude thought he was going.
  18. Etienne de Loury 'Le Petit Duc' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Etienne de Loury 'Petit Duc' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £12.50

    £12.50

    Etienne de Loury Petit Duc Sauvignon Blanc is a remarkably aromatic white wine with pleasant floral and fruit aromas of citrus, apples and gooseberries. The palate reveals the refreshing and vivacious characteristics of Sauvignon Grapes harvested at the perfect maturity.
  19. Falanghina Biblos White Wine Italy

    Falanghina Biblos 2015

    £13.50

    £13.50

    The Italian region of Molise was plagued by vampires, who had rampaged through the Balkans and across the Adriatic before the Pope could bless the sea, frying them in a spray of holy water. Luckily the locals were experts in the manufacture of stakes, in Latin "falangae", and swiftly despatched the evil horde.

    Once the task was completed the ground was littered with stakes. So the locals collected them up and used them for pinning their beloved vines in place. The name of this white wine, Falanghina, is a homage to the stakes of Molise.
  20. Falerio dei Colli Ascolani White Wine

    Falerio Saladini Pilastri 2015

    £9.50

    £9.50

    The infinite (well, 500 plus) variety of grapes to be found in Italy is a source of constant wonderment. Of these varieties - Trebbiano, Passerina and Pecorino - go particularly well together. Found in the Marche region on the east coast of central Italy, they have combined to form, in this instance, a wine with gentle chamomile and acacia flavours, apple-y acidity and surprising body. Maybe wine is just a numbers game and the more grapes you have, the more chance of lovely wine. It's one theory anyway!
  21. Famille Cattin Dry Riesling 2016 French White Wine

    Famille Cattin Dry Riesling 2016

    £11.50

    £11.50

    We bet Voegtlinshoffen wasn't exactly the first place the Wright brothers considered when conquering the airplane. However if they did, they would have discovered the birthplace of family-owned winery now belonging to Jacques and Jean Marie Cattin. They would then discover wines like this here Riesling, golden in colour with subtle notes of peach and a thirst-quenching dryness.

    So if you're ever soaring over France, squinting down at ol' Voegtlinshoffen, take a moment to salute those Cattin brothers for their hard work, or better yet, pick up a bottle of this delicious Riesling and prepare to take flight!
  22. Famille Cattin Pinot Noir

    Famille Cattin Pinot Noir 2014

    £14.25

    £14.25

    Let us set the scene: there's a family relay race that spans across hundreds of years. Each member of the Cattin family hurtles their way through acres of countryside and narrowly weaves between the vineyards, determined to hand on the baton. But as they approach the finish line and their hands connect, they exchange not a thin shaped piece of metal but a deliciously vibrant bottle of Pinot Noir. Behold... the Voegtlinshoffen Games! With luscious red fruit aromas and soft tannins, we advise you to sprint to one of our shops and keep the baton going.
  23. Domaine du Salvard Cheverny 'Vignes des Marnières'

    Famille Delaille Cheverny 'Vignes des Marnieres' 2015

    £12.50

    £12.50

    There's more to Loire valley Sauvignon than Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. Even occasionally more than just Sauvignon Blanc. This lesser known gem of a white wine delivers all the bone dry, nettles and flint crispness you'd expect from it's better known near neighbours, but with 15% Chardonnay added to this blend there's just a hint of something richer, rounder and riper that will take you pleasantly by surprise. And without a big name premium its something of a bargain to boot!
  24. Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini

    Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    The estate of Fattoria di Bagnolo dates back to 1419 and in fact, for some time was owned by Machiavelli, which we think is bloomin' cool. He famously said of his vineyard; "grapes should either be caressed or crushed. If you do them minor damage they will get their revenge; but if you squash the grapes, there is nothing they can do. If you need to injure a grape, do it in such a way that you do not have to fear their vengeance." He didn't seem like a great winemaker, he seemed far too concerned the grapes were plotting to over throw him... Thankfully, today the estate is run by Marchesi Barolini Baldelli, who is passionately devoted to viticulture and is in no way encourages despot winemaking.
  25. Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini Red Wine

    Fattoria Bagnolo Chianti Colli Fiorentini Riserva 2014

    £21.00

    £21.00

    Do you remember in the 70s (probably not, you're probably a spritely young gent/madam) when Brits used to think of Chianti as the wine equivalent of ABBA: Sure, you know it and you're going to tap your feet to the beat, you might even recite a couple of lyrics of Dancing Queen but you don't really want your friends to see. Chianti came in those big round bottles, that for some reason had been whickered all-round the base and every Italian restaurant in the country used them as Candle holders. Thank the Italian heavens that those days are over. Wines like this are some of the finest to come out of Tuscany, with concentrated notes of sour cherry and tomato leaf, combined with a surprising age ability, Chianti is quickly becoming the wine equivalent of Led Zeppelin; we got a 'Whole Lotta Love'!
  26. Fedele Catarratto Pinot Grigio Terre Siciliane IGP 2015

    Fedele Catarratto Pinot Grigio Terre Siciliane IGP 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    Pinot Grigio is the ugly duckling of wine grapes, and people tend to forget what a good Pinot Grigio tastes like and how refreshing they usually are.

    The Fedele is actually a blend of Catarratto, which gives some body, cream and some delicate pear and ripe melon flavours, whilst the Pinot Grigio brings some hints of peach and stoned fruit and an incredible freshness.

    Try it in summertime and you might forget that it is always a bit cloudy in the UK. Drink it during winter and you might forget about the rain.
  27. First Creek Hunter Valley Chardonnay

    First Creek Hunter Valley Chardonnay 2015

    £14.50

    £14.50

    We all accumulate stuff - books, records, candelabras...whatever. Every house needs just one more shelf. Liz Silkman is the same with silverware. She'd already been gathering the gongs before 2015, when her First Creek wines garnered 30 awards in one year alone! That's two-and-a-half per month, or one every twelve days. That's more often than your humble scribe goes to the pub! Could she even pop out to lunch without coming home with a trophy?

    In deference to her shelving problems, Oddbins hereby awards Liz the Wandsworth Chardonnay Eggcup for services rendered to immaculately oaked, fresh white wine which expresses consummately its varietal characteristics. Might be at the engravers for a while, though...
  28. First Creek Hunter Valley Semillon White Wine

    First Creek Hunter Valley Semillon 2014

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Hunter Valley in New South Wales might not be the first place you'd think of if you wanted to plant a vineyard, even though it is Australia's oldest wine region. The weather's all wrong, the summer sky is frequently covered by cloud and it gets most of its yearly rainfall in three months of unrelieved sogginess. But there's no truth, however, in the rumour that it's been twinned with St. Helens.

    First Creek Semillon is a wonderful expression of a classic Hunter Valley grape, light and imbued with citrus and orange blossom, but developing weight and softness over five years bottle ageing. But let's not wait, eh, it's fairing up a bit, we should enjoy it while we can!
  29. 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.
  30. Fleur du Thénac Rouge

    Fleur du Thénac Rouge 2012

    £16.00

    £16.00

    Weirdly Thénac is famous for the Lascaux Caves (faded graffiti of fat horses), truffles (a fungus that is a favourite snack for swine but inexplicably costs humans a fortune), foie gras (the delicious side of animal cruelty) and its unspoilt countryside (yay, look another tree, yawn). In our opinion this is all wrong. The real flower of Thénac is this aptly named wine. The Fleur du Thénac is a modern French red that puts many of its limelight-hogging famous neighbours in Bordeaux to shame, proven by it being chosen to be served on Virgin Atlantic Upper Class flights.
  31. Fonseca Bin 27 Finest Reserve Port

    Fonseca Bin 27 Finest Reserve NV

    £14.00

    £14.00

    This shopping malarky is getting ridiculous. I could be standing here for hours. But a decision needs to be made now. The shop's tasting notes say that Fonseca Bin 27 Finest Port is 'The best blended port you're gonna find today or ever.' Well, that's easy for them to say...

    Suddenly a lovely old lady sticks a bony elbow in my innards, shoves past and grabs a bottle. Then a spotty student also ducks in whilst exclaiming to his mate. 'That's totes dads fav'.

    I turn to start ranting about that bloody none existent word 'totes'. Before I open my mouth a bank robber politely steps past to buy a bottle with his new earnings. Turning around I find that my friend has already asked the staff and bought the same one.

    Bin 27 Finest Port. 'Come on J-dog. The staff here said they tasted it last night. Apparently, it's totes amazeballs dude'
  32. Fonseca Crusted Port NV

    Fonseca Crusted Port NV

    £18.00

    £18.00

    Fictional WW1 fighter pilot ace Biggles would have definitely favoured port. Especially this crusted port. It's a traditional, rare style of port blended from full bodied wines & aged in oak casks for four years.

    Its powerful dark berry and dried fruit flavours would have kept his tummy warm as he bravely traversed enemy territory in his sopwith camel aeroplane. The subtle eucalyptus finish would also comfort him as he hopped into bed, in his flannel pyjamas, after a good day thrashing Erich von Stalhein's forces.

    One things for sure, if Biggle was in a pickle. He'd have a bottle of this crusted port stowed away in his flying togs.
  33. 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...
  34. Fontein Ridge Chenin Blanc 2016 - South African White Wine

    Fontein Ridge Chenin Blanc 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    There are many fountains across the world that are famed for their superb structures and magnificent displays. This is one such fountain, or 'fontein'.

    It wows the crowds with a fount of fruity flavours with ripe apricot, peach, pear and citrus streaming through the palate right through to the end of the show. It'll have you on your feet applauding before you realise you're stood in your living room and not at the Font de Canaletes.
  35. 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...
  36. Footprint Merlot 2016 Red Wine

    Footprint 'The Long Walk' Merlot 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    It's not the most conventional way of employing an expert winemaker, but when Naas used his glue-filled boot to catch the thieving little elf responsible for stealing grapes, it was the beginning of a beautiful new relationship.

    When the elf was forced to share the wine he'd made from the contraband grapes, his otherworldly talent was impossible to ignore. Rather than punish the little guy, the winemaking team encouraged him to join them. The elf agreed on one condition: he got to crush the grapes by bouncing on them standing in Naas's shoe. Genius. The gentlest crushing, releasing magical flavours of plum and mulberry, and just a hint of spice*.

    *Which absolutely has nothing to do with the musky aroma of Naas's footwear, we're certain.
  37. Footprint Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine

    Footprint 'The Long Walk' Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £8.50

    £8.50

    There was no doubt. Grapes were going missing. Not just grapes, the best grapes. Everyone was baffled. Until one evening there was a light shower of rain, and in the softened ground the next morning, a footprint... Only Naas wore such footwear, and was duly arrested.

    Given his urgent protests, the humble grape picker was allowed a chance to prove his innocence. That night he filled his shoes with glue and left them, as he always did, outside on the step. Shortly after dark, unmentionable curses lifted through the night; and caught there in the shoe, much to Naas's delight, was a little elf*.

    Under duress, the elf let everyone taste the wine he'd made with the stolen grapes. Buckets of green apple and gooseberry zip! One sip and the elf was off the hook. As long as he promised to share...

    *And he was hopping mad.
  38. FP Branco by Filipa Pato Portuguese Wine

    FP Branco by Filipa Pato 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Luis Pato is one of Portugal's leading winemakers. Comparing him to Darth Vader seems cruel, but the force is very strong with his offspring. His daughter, the rebellious Princess Filipa Pato produces the FP Branco using Bical and Arinto (indigenous Portuguese grape varieties, not moons of Tatooine).

    It cuts a line as clean as a lightsaber and explodes on the palate like a proton torpedo in a Death Star exhaust vent. Please note Filipa isn't an actual princess and has no affiliation with George Lucas. However, judging by this wine she'll soon become as legendary as Star Wars.
  39. Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon American Wine

    Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    £38.00

    £38.00

    If you want a proper pork pie, you get it from Melton Mowbray. If you want a handmade alpaca-wool scarf, you get it from Peru. If you want a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, you go the Médoc in Bordeaux, Coonawarra in Australia or Rutherford Bench in the Napa Valley. OK there are many other places too, but these names stand as benchmarks of quality. Frog's Leap's founder John Williams wanted a piece of the Rutherford pie and, following a decade-long pursuit, by Jove he got it. Now that he has it, he is seriously making the most out of it. Topped up with Cabernet Franc and Merlot, this Cabernet Sauvignon has the gorgeous 'Rutherford Rust' minerality, earthy warmth and intensity that make this region's wines so desirable.
  40. Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - Magnum

    Frog's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - Magnum

    £74.00

    £74.00

    One small leap for a frog. One quantum leap for winekind!' uttered Veal Winestrong as he sipped red wine made from vineyards in Rutherford. This area is one of the best places in California's Napa valley for making Cabernet Sauvignon. As velvety and satisfying as Cabernets from Coonawarra. Rivaling the finesse and quality of the left bank reds of Bordeaux. All fastened into in a magnum ready for take off- no need to radio Ground Control for a second bottle.
  41. Frog's Leap Merlot 2013

    Frog's Leap Merlot 2013

    £34.00

    Merlot is sometimes prone to sulking. John Williams of Frog's Leap vineyards knows the secret to bringing her back to the festivities. Keep Merlot content. If she dosesn't grow in the happy place- clay. You'll get her classic party pout- nasty green flavours in the resulting wine. This grape likes 'cold feet and a warm body' Or in plain terms- put it in the right soil in a prime spot in the sun. Williams also loves the subtlety and restraint of Bordeaux. This approach combined with his careful attention to Merlots cordial demeanour gives us this utterly superb wine. Elegant and velvety texture, in harmony with raspberry fruits and fine grain tannins. If you keep the grape gleeful and it will give you marvellous Merlot!
  42. Frunza Pinot Grigio White Wine

    Frunza Pinot Grigio 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    Over recent years Pinot Grigio has become the definitive Italian grape for white wine, and by common consent the best Italian PGs come from the North East of that country, and the further North and East you go, the better they get. So what happens if you carry on travelling North and East beyond Italy's borders?

    Well, eventually - and very roughly - you get to Romania, where not only do you find terrific Pinot Grigio wines, but you find it at a terrific Romanian price. Well, it certainly stands to reason, but does it stand up to a taste test? Oh yes, oh yes it does.
  43. Frunza Pinot Noir Romanian Red Wine

    Frunza Pinot Noir 2016

    £7.75

    £7.75

    A Pinot Noir, at this price? From Romania? That's got to be rubbish, hasn't it? Or it's got to come with a catch. We have to admit, that's what we thought when we first got this little number in. So we cracked open a bottle straight away to prove ourselves right.

    And thank Bacchus we did: far from being rubbish, it was indeed a total bargain, and there was no catch - this is budget wine that's not just good for the money, it's just plain good. Full, rich and juicy. Down with prejudice! Up with Romanian Pinot Noir!
  44. Gaia Estate Notios Greek Red Wine 2014

    Gaia Estate Notios Red 2015

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Well it winds from Levidi to Nemea/More than 50 kilometres all the way/Get your kicks on GR66! OK, perhaps it doesn't have the same ring as Chuck Berry's Route 66, we'll grant you, but if you do take that Peloponnese trip and turn off GR66, you'll end up in Gaia Estate's winery in gorgeous Koutsi, Nemea.

    It's every bit as pretty as Oklahoma City and, while you're there you can get hip to this gorgeously elegant, red-berried and velvet-lined Agiorgitiko and Syrah blend. Or failing that, you could just come and get your kicks - and the wine - in any one of our shops!
  45. Gaia Notios 2014 White Wine Greece

    Gaia Notios White 2016

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Our Northern correspondent writes: 'Notios. It's Greek for The Southerner, apparently. What we have here, then, is Gaia Notios white, a Moschofilero and Roditis blend. 'Ere y'are, pour some in here, cock... Well, it's kind of flowery and lychee-ish on the nose, from the Moschofilero - so far, so Southern - but then the Roditis kicks in on the palate, with smooth but keen lemon flavours that give a bit of backbone to any airy-fairy aromas. 'Appen this could give the South a good name! Mmm, it'd go right nice with a bit of whitebait... Cod, I mean. Cod! Oh no, I'm letting the side down again, our lass is gonna have me guts...'
  46. Gaja Dagromis Barolo Red Wine

    Gaja Dagromis Barolo 2012

    £58.00

    £58.00

    Nick Cave to Kylie Minogue: "Do you know where the wild roses grow, so sweet, scarlet and free?" Well, Angelo Gaja the winemaker seems to have the answer. Just open this bottle, pour a glass and let it breathe for a while.

    Then just enjoy the nose of mixed aromatic herbs & spices underlining the delicate notes of rose, leading to aromas of anise and wild fennel. Drink it with roast beef and it will offer some very generous flavours of berries and a savoury feeling too.

    This is one of the most popular wines from the Piedmont region, don't miss it!
  47. Gavi Miganego White Wine from Italy

    Gavi Miganego 2013

    £7.75

    £7.75

    'Oranges and lemons say the bells of St Clements,' is how the old rhyme goes. The rhyme then proceeds to get extremely dark, terrorising children with threats of heads being chopped off. Which is a shame, because Oranges and Lemons could have made for a nice analogy for Gavi Mignanego, which also says oranges lemons.

    This white wine also says lightly honeyed lemon and apple, although there isn't a set of London bells that rhymes with apple. Do let us know if we're wrong on that one though.
  48. Gavi Produttori del Gavi White Wine Italian

    Gavi Produttori del Gavi 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    A daydream-awakening pinch of oneself may be needed when you see the price of this smart little Gavi. However the reality is that we've found another one of those true odd bins that give this company its name. And in this case, one for which the price has worked out particularly favourably.

    This is actually very true to Gavi in the way you'd expect and surprisingly good. Fresh and clean and superbly balanced at just 11% alcohol, this delicate wine slips down exceptionally well. The perfect finishing touch to a relaxing evening.
