  1. Longview 'Yakka' Shiraz 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Longview 'Yakka' Shiraz 2015

    £16.50

    £16.50

    ***Silver at the International Wine Challenge 2015***

    This wine takes its name not from the Aussie slang for hard work, although judging by its magnificently rich, sturdy and swarthy character, you’d wager they had put a lot of work into it. Nope, this wine takes its name from the striking Australian grass shrub, pictured on the label, which also reveals the producer’s love for their homeland and this, too, shines through in this terroir-driven wine, whose dense, ripe black cherry and white pepper flavours show off the warmth of the Macclesfield micro-climate.

  2. Longview Devil's Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Longview Devil's Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    £16.50

    £16.50

    Bolt the doors and check under the stairs, for we have a spine-chilling tale to tell about the Devil's Elbow. Naaaat. This wine is only named after a hairy bit of road near the Longview Estate, not after the Dark Lord himself!

    But dark and powerful this wine certainly is... aged for 20 months in French oak and made from grapes solely grown on the estate, which has a slightly warmer microclimate that suits Cabernet Sauvignon, this has beautiful blackcurrant, clove, mint and toast characters. You might want to bolt the door just to keep it to yourself, TBH.

  3. Los Tortolitos Merlot 2016 Vegan Red Wine

    Los Tortolitos Merlot 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Remember in the 90s when people would talk about Chilean Merlot, "Chilean Merlot it's so expressive, it's like nothing I've ever drunk before!" Then some clever clogs did some gene splicing or... carbon dating or... vino ultrasound? Don't get bogged down in the science, they found out what a lot of people thought was Merlot was actually, Carmenere. Great, hooray for Carmenere, but what about poor old Merlot. It's still got so much to give! We can't sit by while Merlot, in the prime of life, is shipped off to a Chilean nursing home. Thankfully, Vinedos Puertas have put good old Merlot back to work in Chile and I promise you, this time it's not actually Carmenere in a Halloween costume... probably.

  4. Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Vegan and Vegetarian White Wine

    Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    £6.50

    £6.50

    For the Spanish aficionados amongst you, you may be aware Los Tortolitos translates as "the Lovebirds." This name derives from Chilean harvesters observing a lone jay looking terriably blue. Depressed by his hermit existence but accepting of his lot, he turned to the age old monkish practice of assisting in the production of wine. He would pick single grapes and drop them into the harvester's baskets. One day, in a moment of decadence, he ate a grape and was so overcome with the refreshing taste of the Sauvignon Blanc grape he was inspired to invent Tindr. He swiped right on a charming young parakeet from the central valley and the rest is history. Now Tinder and Los Tortolitos Sauvignon Blanc are helping lovebirds everywhere.

  5. Lothian 'Isobel' Rosé 2016 Vegan and Vegetarian Wine

    Lothian 'Isobel' Rosé 2016

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Isobel was different. She had bearing. Poise. She commanded the room effortlessly, without intent. Perhaps it shouldn't have been a surprise when the genealogist knocked on the winery door and announced Isobel descended from royalty. He assured her he wanted nothing for the information, other than proof his findings were true.

    They went with the age old test. But rather than a pea, they placed a ripe mourvèdre grape beneath Isobel's mattress. The following morning, there it was. Perfectly uncrushed. To mark the news, they turned the rest of the grapes to Rosé. A celebration of pomegranates, sweet anise and red fruits, as elegant and blushing as the princess herself.

  6. Lothian Vineyards 'Horny Owl' Shiraz South African Wine

    Lothian Vineyards 'Horny Owl' Shiraz 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    We are quite sure that there is a more profound meaning attached to this South African Shiraz, but we're just going to admit that we are finding it hard not to let our inner teenager snigger at the name.

    Pathetic and immature, yes, BUT, remember, this is Oddbins and we are allowed to be ridiculous. Mm kay? Just don't bring this wine to the first meeting with your super conservative in-laws to be, like someone did, ahem.

    Idiocy aside, the tantalizing aromas of dark brooding fruits and spice-laden goodness should leave you in a tip top mood. It might even put you in another kind of mood altogether...

  7. Luis Alegre Crianza 2013 - Rioja Alavesa - Magnum

    Luis Alegre Crianza 2013 - Rioja Alavesa - Magnum

    £28.00

    £28.00

    Here at Oddbins, we know when we're on to a good thing. We like this wine, we can see that you like it too, so what did we do? We got a bigger one in.

    Yes, that's right, the heavenly, depthy, aniseed-y Luis Alegre's Crianza now comes in a ma-hoosive magnum bottle. It's like Honey I Blew Up the Kid but much, much better.

  8. Luis Alegre Koden Rioja Alavesa 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Luis Alegre Koden Rioja Alavesa 2015

    £10.75

    £10.75

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

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

    Ahem, sorry, this all sound a bit odd now we're reading it back, but you'll see what we mean if you try it.

  9. Luis Alegre Rosado Flores 2016 Vegetarian Rose Wine

    Luis Alegre Rosado Flores 2016

    £9.50

    £9.50

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

  10. Luis Pato Maria Gomes Metodo Antigo NV Vegetarian White Wine

    Luis Pato Maria Gomes Metodo Antigo NV

    Now £14.45

    Was £17.00

    £14.45

    This sparkler is a curious and wonderful thing. It is made using an ancient 'Rural' Method in which, unusually, the wine only undergoes fermentation once, using only naturally occurring sugars.

    If you are slightly bored and confused by this and care not for the methods used, let us tell you that it is made by Luis Pato, the Baron of the Bairrada and one of the most renowned producers in Portugal, who calls it his 'take on Prosecco'.

    If you're now muttering 'meh' at your screen because you don't give a monkeys about famous producers, let us simply say that it is an elegant and focused wine with generous mousse and aromas of white flowers and citrus. Does that do it?

  11. Luzon Crianza Seleccion Red Wine Spain

    Luzón Crianza Selección 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

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

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

  12. Lyme Bay Sandbar 2015 Vegan and Vegetarian White Wine

    Lyme Bay Sandbar 2015

    £14.00

    £14.00

    Lyme Bay Sandbar is a delicious off-dry, crisp wine made with the bacchus grape that displays refreshing characters of grapefruit, nettle & elderflower, with an exceptionally long finish.

  13. Maison Albert Bichot 'Loiseau-Bichot' Gevrey-Chambertin

    Maison Albert Bichot 'Loiseau-Bichot' Gevrey-Chambertin 2012

    £43.00

    £43.00

    If you are planning a very lovely dinner party, plan your menu around this Burgundian bombshell. It has been lovingly blended by the expert sommelier, Eric Goettelmann, from the Cote d'Or restaurant, which has forged a strong partnership with the talented producer, Domaine Albert Bichot.

    Together, they have created a wine that oozes black cherries, smoky, woodland-y fragrances, with the body and firmness you'd expect from Gevrey-Chambertin. Its dream partner? We reckon a poussin wrapped in prosciutto, served with creamed butternut squash. Do we get an invite?

  14. Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah 2013 Vegan Red Wine

    Man O' War Dreadnought Syrah 2013

    £33.00

    £33.00

    If you're a world-class winery, you will be in possession of a few things, including a gifted winemaker and a well-placed vineyard. Man O' War have both of these. Their winemaker, Duncan McTavish is basically a grape-whisperer and the vineyard where the Syrah vines grow might as well have an X marking the spot on the map. It has a well-angled slope, which means the vine can catch the sun for the longest amount of time, and a cooling sea breeze, which means the grapes don't get hot under the collar. All of which leads to a breath-taking wine, with smoky peat notes draped over the overt blueberry and pepper aromas. Concentrated yet well-balanced, with vibrant acidity and a streak of almost salty minerality, it would be perfect with wood-fired pigeon.

  15. Man O' War Ironclad 2010 Vegan Red Wine

    Man O' War Ironclad 2010

    £29.00

    £29.00

    With a name like Man O' War Ironclad, you'd be forgiven if you reached for the nearest potential weapon and ran to a strategic position whilst calling for back up. But we would advise against that. We would advise you to raise a white flag and surrender yourself to this sublime piece of artistry (see what we did there).

    A blend of Bordeaux grape varieties from no less than 45 different plots, which are all handled separately in the winery to maximise their individual potential before being blended, Ironclad has huge complexity of blue and black fruits, crushed stone, chalk and wild thyme.

    The palate is very concentrated with a supple texture and a streak of minerality on the finish. Needless to say, this powerful wine will strive from victory to victory for at least a decade.

  16. Manuka Springs Pinot Noir 2016 New Zealand

    Manuka Springs Pinot Noir 2016

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Everyone agreed the old horse-drawn cart was just the vehicle to transport the Pinot grapes from vineyard to winery, but they failed to take into account the antique craftsmanship. The suspension springs were fashioned from the tough, ungiving wood of the Manuka tree, and the poor Pinot was jostled so roughly the grapes began to split. As the sun hit the broken berries, a deep aroma of warm raspberries rose from the cart and the juice began to ferment. Happily, however, the resulting wine was so elegant that to this day the first crushing is done driving the grapes round in that very same old cart.

  17. Manuka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016 White Wine New Zealand

    Manuka Springs Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    Now £9.75

    Was £10.75

    £9.75

    All over Marlborough unusual geysers spurt manuka honey high into the air. Although initially this was a sticky nightmare for the locals, since manuka honey joined goji berries and pink Himalayan rock salt in the mystical list of superfoods, the locals have embraced the manuka springs.

    The world renowned Sherwood Estate makes this wonderful Sauvignon Blanc in their honour. A veritable fruit salad up the nose, gooseberries, limes, guavas and passionfruits, followed by a tangy lemony slap on the taste buds.

  18. Manz Penedo Do Lexim 2015

    Manz Penedo Do Lexim 2015

    £9.00

    £9.00

    The myth of Sisyphus is well known. A man punished by the gods for his deceit, doomed to spend his days pushing a boulder up a steep hill, only to watch it roll back down each time he got it to the top. What's less well known, the Greeks being fairly free with other people's stories, is that the original Sisyphus was Portuguese.

    It is said that the huge limestone rock in the centre of the Mansz vineyards is the very boulder, serving as constant reminder to those making this delicate, complex red that perseverance is key. Each morning, workers embrace the stone with such gratitude and vigour they encrust themselves with limestone dust; and so, from their thankful hands, a compelling minerality is transferred to the wine.

  19. Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot Burgundy Red Wine

    Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot 2011

    £110.00

    £110.00

    The source of this great wine comes from within the unique, walled vineyard of Clos Vougeot. The Cistercian monks enclosed the entire area many moons ago (work completed 1336) with a dry stone wall. Hence if a wine comes from this Grand Cru than it's from a highly defined & very limited amount of grape vine.

    About 80 folks each have a plot within the walls too. All squabbling over who makes the best wine. Thus if you get your hands on a bottle of this one, you're in for a big treat.

    Marchand Tawse Clos Vougeot's version is a rich red packed with dark currants and cinnamon spices. Followed by mushroom and warm, earthy notes on the finish. It can age for up to 20 years too. Incidentally, this beautiful vineyard also has a rose named after it.

    The Chateaux Clos De Vougeot Climbing rose - named after the intensely deep red robe of this remarkable Burgundian red wine.

  20. Marchand Tawse Gevrey 1er Burgundy

    Marchand Tawse Gevrey-Chambertin "La Perriere" Premier Cru 2014

    £60.00

    £60.00

    The Marchand Tawse Gevrey is a vivacious and pure red wine. The Perrière delights the palate with notes of buckthorn and crushed limestone, swirling into a lacy texture and a bright finish.

  21. Marchand Tawse Nuits Saint Georges 2013 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Marchand Tawse Nuits Saint Georges 2013

    £39.00

    £39.00

    Want to revisit the 60s? If this wine was transposed into a song- it'd be the Beatles 'Strawberry Fields Forever'. 'Let me take you down

    'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields

    Nothing is real

    Until you know what this wine is about

    Strawberry Fields forever

    Nuits St George forever '

  22. Marieta Albarino Spain

    Marieta Albarino 2016

    £10.00

    £10.00

    According to the producers, Marieta is the first semi-dry Albariño ever tasted in the DO Rías Baixas. We cannot categorically confirm the accuracy of this assertion, but what we do know is, we bloomin' love the stuff.

    Bright lemon/green in colour, Marieta has a uniquely fruity aroma, with flashes of peach, red apple and melon, as well as nuances of lemony citrus fruit. On the palate it is a tenaciously persistent wine, with a freshness that verges on effervescent.

    Despite its semi-dry status, Marieta's sweetness is balanced by concentrated citrus flavours, so it actually seems dry. After all that! Well we never.

  23. Marvelous Blue 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Marvelous Blue 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    A saxophone in a lonely back street. An early morning trumpet fanfare. A piano tinkling in a shadowy bar. There's something pure in those sounds. Unapologetic. But music is about connection. Bringing things together. While they might be able to hold their own, there's always the sense an instrument playing alone is calling out for friends.

    And so! Grapes. Brilliant stand alone performers, unashamed. But now and again, don't you feel, they just want to join the band? If it wasn't what they wanted, it's unlikely this reunion of classic Bordeaux varieties would hit such high notes. Blueberry, cassis, tobacco, cedar. Ah one, two, ah one two three four...

  24. Marvelous Red 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Marvelous Red 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    Good jazz is all about balance. Blending. Just the right amount of this, just the right amount of that. It's also about taking a little creative risk now and then. Of course, that could mean things go wrong. But when things go right, wow! That just gets your feet tapping.

    Take this ensemble of Mediterranean varieties. Good soloists, all. But brought together under the baton of an inspired winemaker, well. You better get your dancing shoes. And, of course, creativity is nothing without structure. So, let the old bush vine Cinsault handle that, while the other players go to town. Cherry, rose petals and chalk. Music to the tongue!

  25. Marvelous Yellow 2016 Vegetarian White Wine

    Marvelous Yellow 2016

    £9.75

    £9.75

    Like most complex characters, Adam Mason had many sides. On the one hand he was determined to make untrammelled varietal wine. On the other, he delighted in the concert of flavours, the jazz that blending could bring about.

    Having mastered the art of restraint with his Yardstick range, Adam wanted to let loose. A smile replaced his concentrated frown, and he went into the vineyards singing, picking a mélange of French white grapes with the pizzaz of a band leader cueing in musicians. You'll be helpless against the result! Chalky bass notes, trills of lychee, honeysuckle and papaya... Anyone fancy a dance?

  26. Mas Las Cabes Rosé 2016

    Mas Las Cabes Rosé 2016

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Planting, pruning, picking, perfecting. The winery was constantly manic! Surely, it couldn't do the wine any good if everyone was in such a jumble. Other than Bes. The winery's Pyrenean Mountain Dog. He was a pillar of calmness. It irked Jean. He was determined to prove it was possible to make a wine without getting stressed.

    Quietly, he went about making a bright, laid-back rose. He knew pressure was good, but only gentle pressure that crushes grapes just enough to bring out flavour, proffer a beautiful tinge. The result was perfect, chilled. And as he'd been 'As calm as Bes' when he made it, he jumbled the letters to make-up a name. But that's between you, Jean and Bes. No-one else has had the time to work the anagram out.

  27. McManis Pinot Noir 2015 Vegetarian White Wine

    McManis Pinot Noir 2015

    £12.75

    £12.75

    For the brilliant price tag - especially given its grape and country of origin - this wine is soft, gentle, smooth, curvaceous... Probably time to stop with that metaphor.

    Anyway we're talking hallmark Pinot Noir character here with coquettish red berry fruit and just a waft of soft vanilla. A wonderful wine to tuck into after a long week on a relaxing Friday night and a great example of Pinot Noir that's easier on the wallet without the associated risks of too much acid and not enough fruit.

  28. Menetou Salon Henry Pellé 'Les Bornés' 2015 Vegetarian White Wine

    Menetou Salon Henry Pellé 'Les Bornes' 2015

    £14.50

    £14.50

    From the producer who almost single-handedly put Menetou-Salon on the map as a serious competitor to its big-name neighbours, Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, this wine is really a delight.

    Crisp and cleansing, with brilliantly pure lemon fruit, this is what the Loire is all about and, between you and us, the prices haven't caught up yet, so now's a good time to get in there.

  29. Merino Chardonnay White Wine

    Merino Movi Limari Chardonnay 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Born in the Limari Valley, this wine shares this land with the 'Piedras Tacitas'; ancient stones marked by the Diaguita people. These stones are carved with holes representing the constellations of the starry night sky. This stellar white wine emits lemon, tangerine and apple fruits flavours. Radiating juicy, mineral characters lead to honey and spicy oak notes. An astronomically good value white wine!

  30. Merino Syrah

    Merino Movi Limari Syrah 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Don't have the wool pulled over your eyes, this is not an advert for merino jumpers. However, this Syrah would certainly keep you warm if you walked the wind swept hills of this wine's home in the Limari Valley, Chile. Rich yet elegant black berry and raspberry flavours, followed by Syrah's typical sweet spice and peppery character on the finish. Also, if you think you can taste violets- you'd be tasting the tiny addition (5%) of the white grape Viognier. No need to feel sheepish- try it out!

  31. Message in a Bottle Red Wine By Sting

    Message in a Bottle 2013

    £16.00

    £16.00

    A wine made in Tuscany that comes from the estate owned by musician sting and producer Trudie Styler.

    The nose displays aromas of cherries, wild blackberries and spices.The palate has a richness of fruit but one that is balanced both by careful use of oak and a refreshing acidity.

    Cherrywood, tea leaves and bramble fruits can all be found on the palate. Supple fine grained tannins provide a lovely structure to this long and satisfying wine.

  32. Michelas St Jemms Cornas Les Murettes 2013 Vegan Red Wine

    Michelas St Jemms Cornas Les Murettes 2013

    £39.00

    £39.00

    Cornas, some may be surprised to learn is in fact, a renowned winegrowing region in the Northern Rhone and not the plural of the protective outer layer of the eye... That would be corneas. Ironically, the wines of Cornas are said to be so beautiful that to look upon them you can go temporarily blind. This example from Michelas St-Jemms is no exception. Made from 100% Syrah it has complex flavours of dark forest fruit, mocha and a subtle suggestion of roasted meat. There is tremendous depth and concentration, with a lovely balanced structure and long finish. You obviously won't go blind but you may well be struck dumb.

  33. Miles Mossop 'Introduction' Chenin Blanc 2015 White Wine

    Miles Mossop 'Introduction' Chenin Blanc 2015

    £13.50

    £13.50

    You only get one chance to make a first impression. And this ambitious Chenin knew she had to knock it out of the park if she wanted to be picked by the famous Miles Mossop. What grape wouldn't? She went all out! White peach, honeysuckle, brioche. A subtle little side-show of ground almonds. Not to mention gorgeous pineapples.

    But that up front hit isn't enough on its own. She also knew a little intrigue was important. Just the slightest racy edge of citrus tartness, to let everyone know she wasn't a pushover. And then, of course, a little something to leave her lingering in the mind.

  34. Miles Mossup 'Max'

    Miles Mossop 'Max' Bordeaux Blend 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    You know how Bordeaux is a bit tweed jacket, red trousers, brogues and hunting? Maybe that's a little unfair, but it's certainly on the stuffier side. Well what would happen if you moved it to South Africa, gave it a dose of proper sunshine, maybe taught it to surf and then changed its name to something edgy like Max? That would be pretty cool wouldn't it? Well that's exactly what Miles Mossop, the winemaker from Tokara, has done. This is a stunning wine, with flavours of dark cherries, charcuterie and Christmas cake, and great value. Such great value, in fact, we think they may have relaxed a little too much.

  35. Miles Mossop Saskia

    Miles Mossop 'Saskia' 2013

    £19.00

    £19.00

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

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

  36. Mirambelo Red Wine Greece

    Mirambelo Red 2010

    £11.00

    £11.00

    Altogether now, "Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby! Ahhhaaaa-aaaahhhh. Do you do you do you need it?" Yes, Kaiser Chiefs. The answer is yes. You do need it. But this wine's beguiling, shiny, ruby-red colour is only part of the story and there are three more reasons why you need Mirambelo in your life.

    1) the Christmassy, spicy dried fruits.

    2) the warm, vanilla-laced charm

    3) it will turn you from a mere mortal into an immortal demi-god (but only if you drink it on a full moon).

  37. Miraval Provence Rosé 2016 Vegetarian Wine

    Miraval Provence Rosé 2016

    £19.50

    £19.50

    One of the most famous Rosé's in the world! An exclusive wine from the estate of Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt, this gorgeously pale pink Rosé comes with a lovely mineral freshness and delicate aromas of citrus, red fruits and white flowers.

    It provides elegance and balance of the palate with a very nice tension, bringing its long fruity finish with an undertone salty character.

  38. Red Wine Monte Das Promessas 2014

    Monte Das Promessas 2014

    Now £7.50

    Was £8.50

    £7.50

    From the acclaimed 'Best Young Winemaker of Portugal' and the name behind the success story that is Bons Ventos, comes Monte das Promessas, an extremely fruity wine, with elegant structure and a well-balanced and long aftertaste. Take a sip, smack your lips, gaze into its deep violet colour and breathe in the ripe berry fruit and floral notes, whilst humming along to the famous 'Ten Green Bottles'. We'll give you a starting point. Santos Lima wines are capable of producing the equivalent to 14 million bottles in their 400ha of vineyards...

    Ahem, 'there were 14 million bottles sitting on the wall...'

  39. Morellino di Scansano Ventoso 2014 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Morellino di Scansano Ventoso 2014

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Tuscany is famous for Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. But sometimes we like to take you off piste, because off the beaten track you find treats like Morellino di Scansano.

    One of Tuscany's least famous DOCGs, Morellino di Scansano produces stunningly fresh red wines, but the prices are held down by the fame of its neighbours.

    We are quite happy about that as it makes this pure and unoaked beauty, with its cherry, blackberry and pomegranate flavours, even more irresistible. And it turns us into little piggies, just like the one on the label.

  40. Morgon Henry Fessy 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Morgon Henry Fessy 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    With its musketeer-style label, may we introduce Moujolais; moustachioed Beaujolais. The World Beard and Moustache Championship has six sub-categories for soup strainers;

    Natural (styled without aids), Hungarian (bushy and pulled to the side), Dalí (slender and curved steeply), English (long and narrow), Imperial (whiskers on upper lip and cheek) and Freestyle (everything else).

    Henry Fessy's Morgon is of a medium weight with a rounded finish adorned with fruit. On the basis of its flair we'd give this red wine first prize in the "Freestyle" category if it really were a lip rug.

  41. Moulin-a-Vent Drouhin 2015 Vegetarian Red Wine

    Moulin-a-Vent Drouhin 2015

    £16.50

    £16.50

    In 1880, Joseph Drouhin chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name. Over the years and with each generation, his passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom.

    Moulin à Vent is the crown jewel of the family heirloom. A beautiful dark garnet colour, with intense and elegant aromas of peony, tea rose and damson plum, often with nuances of liquorice. On the palate, a beautiful structure, velvety texture and majesty. The aftertaste is long, refined and appetising in a subdued way. It is considered the Cru of Beaujolais that is the closest in style to the Burgundies of the Cote d'Or.

    Perhaps When Chris Met Andrea doesn't have the same ring to it as When Harry Met Sally, but we think their story has all the charm. As young whippersnappers, they toured the world, working harvests in classic wine regions, until their eyes met over a vine (maybe that bit's poetic licence) and they fell in love.

    They returned to Chris' native South Africa where 'they learnt that their compatibility extended into the vineyards and cellar' and started making wines like this succulent, richly-scented blend of Rhône varieties, which is finely textured with a fresh, energizing finish that makes it the ideal match for pork belly. Yet another match made in wine heaven. Alright alright we'll stop with the cheese.

    You'll be hard pushed to find a wine that shows off its roots quite as well as Mullinieux White. It's a blend of three different grapes and the Chenin Blanc is from vines up to 80 years old; that's great but not too unusual. But, Chris and Andrea are so dedicated to showing off what Swartland has to offer that they've grown each grape variety in different soil types and only indigenous yeasts are used during fermentation. There's no questioning where this wine comes from. With so much dedication, it's no wonder they're known as one of the best wine producers in South Africa. The final product has a stony, slatey aroma with a zip of limey acidity and a rich, supple mouth-feel. Swartland tastes amazing.

  44. Murrina Primitivo 2013 Vegan Red Wine

    Murrina Primitivo 2013 *WEB EXCLUSIVE*

    £10.00

    £10.00

    We get a similar feeling from sipping on this wine as we do from watching an episode of Inspector Montalbano.

    With sun-ripened, juicy flavours of cherries, raspberries and redcurrants, it conjures up images of hazy Italian days and, with its hint of leather and spice from its oak ageing, you feel you could almost be on the back of a Vespa with Montalbano. Happy days.

    However, unlike Montalbano, there isn't a hint of cheese (although it would probably work quite well with a good slab of Taleggio).

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

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

    Right! Grow up! Stop sniggering like a schoolchild because you've seen the word prat. It isn't prat, because it's French. So it's praaaaah. See? Besides, titter as you might, this vermouth is very far from prattish in any sense of the word. A 'prat', the Oxford English Dictionary would have it, is 'an incompetent or stupid person; an idiot.'*

    So how could the word 'prat' be associated with an aromatised wine this good, based on Picpoul and Clairette grapes, and infused among other things with Roman Chamomile, Nutmeg from Indonesia and Bitter Orange from Tunisia? Yeah. And Gentian from France. Who's the prat now?

    *'Prat' also means 'a person's buttocks.' I bet you didn't know that.

  47. Nuiton Beaunoy Beaune 2013 Vegan Red Wine

    Nuiton-Beaunoy Beaune 2013

    £24.00

    £24.00

    Imagine gliding over the Côte d'Or, taking off from the rooftops of Beaune and drifting over the undulations of Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Montrachet and Santenay, dreamily contemplating the miracle of the topography beneath you and the world class wines it produces.

    Thirsty work for sure, and what more fitting reward at the end of your flight than a glass of this ripe and perfumed Pinot Noir, produced by a part-time paraglider from a Côte d'Or-covering co-operative. Despite being vegan, it would certainly thank you if you'd grabbed a duck to go with it while you were up there!

  48. Nuiton-Beaunoy Santenay 2015 Vegan Red Wine

    Nuiton-Beaunoy Santenay 2015

    £21.00

    £21.00

    There's an admirable note of distinction to this fine red Santenay that's hard to pin down. While it's light and quite delicate for a Burgundy, it has a beguilingly pleasant, almost sweet-scented nutty oak character. The good folk at Nuiton-Beaunoy, who grace us regularly with their presence, are quick to point out that this is a clever combination of both Beaune terroir and some good old ageing-on-the-lees action.
