  1. Anxo Martin Spanish White Wine

    Anxo MartÍn 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Sometimes we desperately lust for a relaxing getaway and a dose of healthy vitamin D, but often lack the finance for it. We at Oddbins have a solution for this - just crack open a bottle of this liquid sunshine! You will immediately be teleported to a beach: juicy mango in hand and white flowers in your hair. Surrounding you are passion fruit trees heavy with ripe fruits, and the sun above you shines golden. Breathe in and get lost in a world of exotic wonders... This is the magic Anxo Martín brings!
  2. Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 'Possessive' Red Blend Australian Red Wine  2014

    Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 'Possessive' Red Blend 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    You can be complex yet still approachable. Look at Living in The Past by Jethro Tull, a record so wonderfully catchy that you'd never notice its complex 5/4 time signature. Look at Stephen Fry, his mind constantly whirling about like an orrery while he's one of the most popular chaps on television.

    And look at this wine, three grapes that bounce off each other's differing personalities like an old Beatles interview, with heavy Shiraz lifting musky Grenache, which softens the Mataro which sharpens the Shiraz which... and so on, like an Escher staircase.

    Suffice it to say that all this activity need not even momentarily distract you from what is a thoroughly delicious, complex and approachable modern red wine. Hats off to Larry!
  3. Aymura Carmenere Red Wine Chilean 2014

    Aymura Carménère 2014

    £12.75

    £12.75

    250 miles north of Santiago lies Chile's Elqui Valley, which may well have been formed by the work of singer Elkie Brooks. The area has only recently found favour with winemakers initially cautious (with only 15 days precipitation per year, there's nothing but Sunshine After the Rain, but you'd be a Fool if You Think It's Over just because of that).

    Mitigating all of that sunshine are cool night-time temperatures which means that, instead of sweet and heady Lilac Wines, you can make bold, full-bodied, complex and dark chocolate-tinged Pearls like this (enough already! - Ed).
  4. Berton Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 South Australian Red Wine

    Berton Reserve Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    £14.25

    £14.25

    Berton is a family-run set up that has risen promptly from humble beginnings in 2005. Having started on a plot of land that was dubbed 'the Bonsai' vineyard due to its gnarled, water-deprived vines, founder/owner Bob Berton introduced a better water supply and, resultantly, blinding wines.

    This Cabernet has an impenetrable black colour, fragrant and concentrated aromas of blackcurrant, fresh tobacco and sweet pepper and an intense, fine-grained palate of cassis, minerals and toasty oak.
  5. Palacios 'Finca Dofi' Priorat 2014 Red Wine

    Bodegas Palacios Remondo 'Finca Dofí' Priorat 2014

    £50.00

    £50.00

    During the mid-1900s, a boom in appetite for marzipan lead to great demand for almonds. Many farmers converted from other crops and planted almond trees, particularly in the beautiful region of Priorat. Rich farmers tore out their vines to grow almonds. Those more wistful, or simply less wealthy, sat by. Until years later a winemaker visited.

    He was gob-smacked. Gnarled old vines. Intense grapes. A resulting wine of power and refinement. Suddenly, the poorer farmers found themselves with some of the most coveted wine land in the world. Their sentiment paid off. Hence the phrase to 'priorat-ize' - to decide what is most important. Not always the quick buck, it seems!
  6. Palacios 'Placet' Rioja Blanco 2014 Spanish White Wine

    Bodegas Palacios Remondo 'Placet' Rioja Blanco 2014

    £17.50

    £17.50

    To be born into a well-regarded winemaking family might seem a boon, but for youngest son Rafa it was a double-edged sword. Yes, he inherited a passion to make outstanding Rioja; but he also wanted to assert his individuality. And, as always, that caused ructions. Family opinion was split.

    Rafael wanted to fashion a Blanco. A wine of such elemental elegance it would sit shoulder to shoulder with the family's reds. A white capturing the character of the region. Marrying the scrubland scents of Holm oak, thyme and rosemary with flavours of white peach and pear. A modern wine, but with deference to tradition. One taste, and the family gave their assent. You can decide for yourself.
  7. Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine

    Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    £42.00

    £42.00

    A red wine with distinctive cassis influence with a cedary spine covered with dark cherry, waxy crayon earthiness, graphite and enticing undertones. On the palate it is rich with blackcurrant and firm ripe tannins indicating that this wine has at least a decade of ageing potential.
  8. Boer and Brit Field Marshall 2014 Red Wine South African

    Boer & Brit Field Marshall 2014

    £12.50

    £12.50

    A Mediterranean styled blended red wine, made up of alternative varietals produced in South Africa. Rich with flavours of pomegranate, cloves, pepper, ripe plums and masses of piquant spice before moving through to a lean, savoury finish.
  9. Boer & Brit The General South African Red Wine 2014

    Boer & Brit The General 2014

    £12.50

    £12.50

    An unorthodox Bordeaux blend, minus the Cabernet Sauvignon. This generous, full bodied red wine has been produced using the Bordeaux varietals of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot with a touch of Merlot. Hedgerow fruits, blue berries and spice notes are intensified by velvet tannins and a touch of oak.
  10. Cabaret Rosé 2014 - Magnum - Rosé Wine

    Cabaret Rosé 2014 - Magnum

    £24.00

    £24.00

    ***Silver at Decanter 2014***

    It's one thing to keep passing a business down to your children, it's quite another to keep that line going for 700 years. Yet this is exactly what the wine-making Sumeire family, in Provence, has done.

    Located at the foot of the magnificent Montagne Sainte-Victoire, which inspired artists like Cézanne, this historic winery has produced a classic Provencal rosé: feather-light and elegant, with fresh strawberry and cherry blossom notes.
  11. Château Cesseras 'Cuvée Olric' Minervois 2014

    Château Cesseras 'Cuvée Olric' Minervois 2014

    £11.50

    £11.50

    Minervois is a region that has been making wine as far back as the Romans and beyond. In fact, the name derives from the region's city, Minerve, which in turn takes its name from the Roman goddess Minerva. Minerva was the god of wisdom, poetry, arts and magic. As art and wisdom are synonymous with great wine, we (Oddbins Historical Research Department) believe Minervois was in high cahoots with her work colleague Dionysus. He was in charge of the God's celestial wine store. Although not documented we are certain they are responsible for ensuring the almost limitless production of robust spicy reds that has flowed out from this land ever since its Minervoisation. This red wine is from Minervois la Liviniere, a place the benevolent duo made sure always made the best wines in the area. Rich black cherry, black plums smothered in herbs and spices. So when you are fortunate enough to have a glass of this red- raise your chalice to the ancient wisdom of a Roman Goddess and her vinous partner in crime!
  12. Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepère Red Wine

    Château Guilhem Prestige AOC Malepere Red 2014

    £12.00

    £12.00

    We love Hannah Leadbeater. Upon being asked to write a tasting note for the wine that she discovered and fell in love with on holiday four years ago, she gathered the same friends that she's holidayed with and they sat around together, coming up with the following tasting note between them. Talk about team work!

    Here is that (very accurate, in our opinion) note on this Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec blend from the Languedoc:
    'This wine is packed full of character. The aroma is of red berries, cinnamon and vanilla. These flavours combine on the tongue with a slight pepperiness and a rounded mouth-feel. It is medium-bodied, delivering a great taste whilst being fresh on the palate. It has a long finish, making it great for savouring on its own. It also goes well with red meats, stews or lashings of French cheese!'
  13. Chateau Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur

    Château Haut Serre Grand Vin Seigneur 2014

    £20.00

    £20.00

    The Chateau de Haute-Serre Grand Vin Seigneur Malbec is very dark in colour, with highlights of crimson. This exceptional red has a noteworthy balance with an intense concentration and elegant finesse demonstrating the power of a great malbec with its complexity. From opening the bottle immediately is the powerful bouquet of Morello cherry, blackcurrant and spice. The fresh and fruity nose is reflected on the palate which has a long, silky smooth after taste, typical of the vineyard.
  14. Château Teyssier Puisseguin-Saint-Émillion 2014

    Château Teyssier Puisseguin-Saint-Émillion 2014

    £13.00

    £13.00

    We reckon this wine ticks what we consider to be two pretty major boxes: Firstly, it's tasty: it speaks eloquently of the Puisseguin Saint-Émilion terroir and is supple, well-structured, with impressive length and surprising fruitiness.

    Secondly it's cracking value: at £13.00 it is a come-hither Claret that won't break the bank. You could plonk this on any dinner table, happy in the knowledge that they'll love it and you're not skint.
  15. Chatons du Cèdre 2014 (Red Wine)

    Chatons du Cèdre 2014

    £10.75

    £10.75

    Winemaker Pascal Léon Verhaeghe is a man who fell back in love with wine, after inheriting his family's mixed-culture estate in Cahors. After an encounter with his friend Jean-Marie Guffens (who comes from Pascal's family's native Flanders, and who makes our Verget wines) he went off to do a degree in oenology and generally get skilled-up.

    He came back to his family's vineyards and proceeded to work sympathetically with the land (the vineyards are certified organic) and has low yields and a large, attentive vineyard team.

    Chaton du Cèdre is fantastically black, with liquorice, red cherry and leather notes, and a rounded palate. We're so glad he rediscovered his roots.
  16. Chianti Sogatia Italy Red Wine

    Chianti Sogatia 2014

    £9.50

    £9.50

    This is an impressively neat little bargain Chianti that's on the bodysome, flavoursome side of this classic Italian style. This slightly more buxom red is moreishly drinkable, soft and lip-smackingly ripe. The palate is still classic though - with dark cherry and plum. This really is the wine to match with your takeaway pizza and a good classic gangster movie.
  17. Cigarra Rosé Wine Portugal

    Cigarra Rosé 2014

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Casa Santos Lima seem to have the Midas touch. We have half a mind to take all our jewellery over there and see if they can turn it all a shimmering gold. This is why we are stocking as many of their wines as possible, including the best-selling Quinta de Bons Ventos.
    This rosé wine has a beguiling, deep pink hue that, on the palate, reveals intense aromas of strawberries and raspberries, with excellent structure and balanced, refreshing acidity. All for £7.
  18. Cillar de Silos Crianza Spanish Red Wine

    Cillar de Silos Crianza 2014

    £18.25

    £18.25

    It's wines like this elegant, intense, blackberry-infused Ribero del Duero, that make selling wine such an absolute pleasure. Because after the bottle is despatched and we have parted company, you, dear customer, can revel in its joys at your leisure, whilst we sit back, have a cup of tea and think happily, "our work here is done now".

    How are we so sure? Because we've yet to pour this red out and witness anything but pure pleasure. Such is its rich, intense decadent appeal. With beautiful notes of top quality oak and deep dark fruit this is a brooding beauty.
  19. Torresilo Ribera del Duero

    Cillar de Silos Torresilo 2014

    £37.00

    £37.00

    Like the Royal Family at the moment, Cillar de Silos just go from strength to strength, and they don't even have Kate Middleton on their team.

    The Aragón family has made wine for personal consumption for as long as records go, but in the 1970s Amalio Aragón started acquiring top vineyard sites in Ribera del Duero.

    His grandson, Óscar, is now head winemaker and is known for making incredible wines, like this deep, meditative, luscious and minerally Tempranillo. Who needs Kate?
  20. Clos Bellane 'Les Echalas' Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Rouge 2012

    Clos Bellane 'Les Echalas' Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas Rouge 2014

    £20.50

    £20.50

    It's well known that many indigenous people of the Rhone, like most mountain folk, are short and squat. To be born tall and thin is a boon, here; and from an early age these 'beanpoles' are singled out for specialist work, picking the higher grapes from the tops of the vines.

    Taking it's name from the French for pole, or stake, 'Éschalas' honours these gangly individuals, without whom those sun-filled grapes right at the top of the vine would never have made it into this belting Rhone blend. Honest...
  21. Cop de Ma Blanca  White Wine

    Cop de Ma Blanca 2014

    Now £7.20

    Was £8.00

    £7.20

    A vibrant Garnacha Blanca from Catalonia, from a producer whose name translates as 'lend a hand', with a label that refers to the Castells of Catalonia, the human pyramids that form an eye-popping attraction in so many public festivities in the region. The Castells, great symbols of co-operation, were declared by UNESCO in 2010 to be one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

    Crikey! But speaking of orals and intangibles, the region makes a remarkable amount of utterly wonderful wines, and we'd be delighted to let anybody give us a hand to drink this refreshing, creamy, green apple packed, delicious white wine!
  22. De Martino Legado Carménère 2014

    De Martino Legado Carmenere 2014

    £10.50

    £10.50

    Legado is Spanish for legacy, something handed down by an ancestor or a predecessor. De Martino have got this red wine spot on, but questions need to be asked about the name.

    One taste and nobody in their right mind would ever want to give it away to a member of a younger generation, however much you love them. They just wouldn't appreciate something this elegant, sophisticated, would they? Nope, we think that De Martino Stockpile Selfishly Carménére would be a far more fitting name.
  23. Arnesque Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Capelane French Red Wine 2014

    Domaine de L'Arnesque Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Capelane 2014

    £26.50

    £26.50

    Châteauneuf is a classic. And this is as breathtaking an example as you're likely to come by at this outstandingly reasonable price tag. With this vintage of Cuvée Capelane outscoring renowned competitors at twice the price in many a contest, Domaine de l'Arnesque really are showcasing their virtuosity here. Smooth, rich and profound, this is a really unmissable must-try expression of this exalted style of red wine.
  24. Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas Red Wine

    Domaine des Bosquets Gigondas 2014

    £28.00

    £28.00

    Gigondas speaks to our heart. With consistently high standards and a charmingly rustic flair, their wines have quality and soul. The Bréchet brothers at Domaines des Bosquets understand Gigondas intimately, as their vineyards were the very first to be planted up, way back when in 1397. Châteauneuf-du-Pape-like in style, this wine is deep and brambly with the elegant herby, stony notes found in the best Gigondas. Not to put too much pressure on your cooking or anything, but a good way to do justice to 600-odd years of winemaking history could be to serve it with a slow roast leg of hogget. As we say, no pressure.
  25. Domaine Gardies 'Les Millères' Rouge

    Domaine Gardies 'Les Millères' Rouge 2014

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Not one, not two, not... actually we'll just tell you: no less than seven generations of the Gardies family have made wine in the village of Vingrau in Rousillon. But current owner Jean Gardiés is showing no signs of crumbling under the pressure; he's positively blooming, as are his vines (smooth, we know), whose small yields produce critically acclaimed wines like this intense, bright garnet-red, softly spicy beauty.
  26. Domaine Joel Delaunay Touraine Chenonceaux Rouge 2014 French Red Wine

    Domaine Joël Delaunay 'L'esprit des Dames' Touraine Chenonceaux Rouge 2014

    £16.00

    £16.00

    Thierry was often saddened when he saw the ladies in the winery. They looked so drab and miserable, as if their work was a chore. Surely that wasn't good for the wine. Their tired looks must affect the end result, and make it bitter and sharp.

    What's needed, thought Thierry, is some glamour. Then they'll feel much better. So he set about producing a youthful, sensuous red the ladies could rub on their cheeks. A rouge to brighten up proceedings, and bring about a blushing vibrancy. The plan worked a treat. Even if the wine didn't work for everyone as make-up, drinking it put a smile upon their face. One taste, and you can tell.
  27. 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.
  28. 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.
  29. 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!
  30. 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.
  31. 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.
  32. 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.
  33. 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'!
  34. 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!
  35. 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.
  36. 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...
  37. Serabel Gigondas Red Wine France

    Gigondas Dom Des Fontnobles 2014

    £18.00

    £18.00

    The name Gigondas is derived from the Latin 'Jocunditas', meaning great enjoyment and pleasure. What more appropriate name could there be for a place dedicated to the production of wine?

    And when that place is in the southern Rhône and producing wines that rival the best of those of its more celebrated near neighbour, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, at prices that even your bank manager might see as cause for celebration, then it's not hard to see where the great enjoyment and pleasure might be derived.

    "Fiat bonis revolvet", as the Romans might have said... (That's 'let the good times roll' in Latin)
  38. Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz

    Glaetzer Bishop Shiraz 2014

    £28.00

    £28.00

    This wine was so named because it can only move diagonally. We therefore recommend that when setting the table, the wine be placed in the centre with diners arranged obliquely to it. Which should also maintain the harmony, because this is a quite remarkable drop from the Aussie master Ben Glaetzer. Intense, complex and with impressive cellaring potential this red is always in severe demand. Our bestseller for the Aussie crowd when sending special gifts to their nearest and dearest in the UK, this Bishop has the stamp of approval of a whole nation.
  39. Glorioso Rioja Crianza Red Wine Spain

    Glorioso Rioja Crianza 2014

    £11.00

    £11.00

    A Rioja made for meal times! This red wine might just be the food-match ace in the Rioja suit.
  40. Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Argentina Red Wine

    Hermanos Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    £12.75

    £12.75

    This Cabernet Sauvignon was created in the lofty heights of the Cafayate Valley in the remote Salta region of Argentina. Sounds like a good location for a secret base for a league of superheroes. Lucky for us the two brothers who made this red are not muscle bound meat heads with loads of gadgets and outlandish wardrobes.

    Rafael and Osvaldo Domingo are our kind of heroes- taking grapes and shaping them into amazing wine. Rippling with raspberries, cocoa, and spices. This is the kinda full-bodied wine that'll land on your balcony dressed in red with a masterplan to save the world, fix everything in town and make sure you're safely tucked in bed before midnight.
  41. Incienso Malbec Red Wine Argentina

    Incienso Malbec 2014

    £7.50

    £7.50

    You can do a lot with £7.50. You could buy some hair dye and go strawberry blonde. You could buy a decent quality ball point pen. Or! You could buy yourself a taste of the Argentine countryside, fresh blackberries and an oomph of hot spice from the gusty plains at the foot of the Andes. And, whilst you can't beat a high quality biro, we'd take the wine any day. Obvz.
  42. Innocent Bystander Chardonnay Australia White Wine

    Innocent Bystander Chardonnay 2014

    £15.50

    £15.50

    'Make great wine for drinking and enjoying, not for crowing over,' is the ethos of Steve Flamsteed, winemaker at Innocent Bystander. They might want to share this with Ken Flimflam at Nuisance wines, whose motto 'wine for crowing over!' isn't working...

    'Forest floor notes, my eye!' mithers Ken as he takes another swig of Pinot Ordinaire from his tankard.

    'Actually Ken I've got a distinct whiff of sewage farm', claims winemaker Derek Dastardly.

    'I'll phenolic you, yer leather-tongued philistine', roars Ken, heaving himself over the table for a scrap...

    Oh dear. Perhaps a night at Innocent Bystander's celebrated winery and restaurant would show Ken the light. Then he, too, would make glorious wines like this peachy, zesty and beautifully expressive Yarra Valley Chardonnay.
  43. Joseph Gregoire Muscadet 2014 white wine

    Joseph Gregoire Lieubeau Muscadet 2014

    £9.25

    £9.25

    Let us think about this wine in terms of weather. Imagine one of the first spring days, when the daffodils are just peeking their heads above the parapet and the birds are poking their noses out of their nests. A cool westerly stirs the wind in the budding trees and, as you sip on a glass of delicious, homemade lemonade, you catch a lungful of light, fresh, spring flowers. That, friends, is Jospeh Gregoire Muscadet... except it's a wine, obvz.
  44. Justin Girardin Santenay Clos Rousseau premier Cru 2014

    Justin Girardin Santenay Clos Rousseau Premier Cru 2014

    £25.00

    £25.00

    Twelve generations. A whole heap of winemaking knowledge. A range of fantastic wines. There's something to say for listening to your parents from time to time and we think Justin, the 13 generation of the Girardin family, would have to agree.

    Sticking with the traditions passed down to him from previous generations, young Justin has produced a fine wine filled with ripe, red fruit and soft, smooth tannins. It's one for sitting down with the family and savouring the moment.
  45. Kopfensteiner Blaufrankisch Red Wine

    Kopfensteiner Blaufrankisch Eisenberg 2014

    £14.00

    £14.00

    Thomas Kopfensteiner is oddly impressed by soil. So impressed, in fact, that he took over a patch of land in Austria because its soil was forbiddingly dense with clay. And then he was bowled over by another spot because its meagre-looking soil was full of slate and thick with iron deposits. It's hardly Gardener's World, is it? Yet by beavering about endlessly in all this gunge, he coaxed wholly natural and earthy grapes from the first patch, and concentrated and minerally fruit from the second.

    Alchemy! And then wizardry, as he put them together and hey presto! A beautifully-structured but juicy red wine, packed with fruit and speaking eloquently of the region whence it came. You wouldn't have thought, would you...?
  46. La Girouette Merlot Languedoc Red Wine

    La Girouette Merlot 2015

    £7.75

    £7.75

    The La Girouette Merlot is a well balanced, smooth red wine from the E.I Wines selection. It has notes of soft and jammy blackberry and juicy plum, alongside creamy tannins. An excellent companion to a hearty casserole.
  47. La Multa El Recurso Old Vine Garnacha 2014 Red Wine

    La Multa El Recurso Old Vine Garnacha 2014

    £9.00

    £9.00

    The Flying Scotsman may sound like the name of a catamaran in the North Sea, but it is actually the (translated) name of the winery behind this full-throttle Spanish red, Escocés Volante. Which, in turn, is named after its Scottish winemaker and genius, Norrel Robertson MW.

    Not content with his Politics MA, he joined the wine industry and, one Master of Wine degree and one distinction in Postgraduate Viticulture and Oenology course later, he set up Escocés Volante, where the accolades keep coming.

    La Multa is made with grapes from old Garnacha vines grown at high altitudes, which have given rise to raspberry, sweet leather and spice-laden flavours. Proof that it pays to swot.
  48. La Purisma Syrah Spanish Red

    La Purísima Syrah 2014

    £10.00

    £10.00

    Bodegas La Purísima was founded in in 1946 by a forward-thinking group of farmers who recognised the potential of their land to produce better quality wines. Their sustained efforts led to the creation of the coveted' Denomination Origin' of Yecla in 1975.

    Quite some achievement - and the bodegas has gone from strength to strength, these days creating confident wines such as La Purisma Syrah. A deep ruby in colour, with intense flavours of violets and flourishes of spicy black fruit. Farmers, we thank you.
