  1. Alain Geoffroy Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2015

    Alain Geoffroy Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2015

    £22.00

    £22.00

    Domaine Alain Geoffroy have let Oddbins in on a little-known secret about a certain singer-songwriter and this Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy.

    Way back when she visited the Domain on a holiday, Natasha Bedingfield understandably fell a little head-over-heels in love with this voluptuous white wine. She was so enamoured by its pale golden colour, floral aromas and fresh, fruity flavours that she couldn't stop singing about bottles full of sunshine.

    Rumour has it she had to change the lyrics for legal reasons and so she started singing about pocketsful of sunshine instead - a bit of a leap if you ask us. But your secret is out now, Natasha, and quite honestly we love the original version almost as much as we love this Chablis; we dare you to try singing it without it getting stuck in your head!

    'I got a bottle, Got a bottle full of sunshine, I've got a love and I know that it's all mine...'
  2. Albert Bichot Macon Pierreclos 2015 Red Burgundy

    Albert Bichot Mâcon Pierreclos 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    Albert Bichot's family wine business goes back so far that it coincided with Beethoven composing his Fifth Symphony, an absolute masterpiece, similar to this Macon Pierreclose Bichot... Thinking about it, to quote Albéric Bichot himself, he has compared his work to conducting an orchestra too!
    Not too dissimilar to Mr. Beethoven after all then, but instead of a string quartet and a pianist, we have an acapella of cherry, plum and spices on the nose, a crescendo of intense fruit flavours against a tangy background on the palate and on the finish?
    An impressive ensemble of refreshing notes of red fruit. Encore!
  3. Albert Bichot Viré-Clessé 2015

    Albert Bichot Viré-Clessé 2015

    £16.00

    £16.00

    The first traces of the Bichot family track back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. The family's coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche). Yep, you read that right, you just have to trust a winery that's coat of arms is older than most countries. Albert Bichot's coat of arms was around before America was a mere glint in Columbus' eye! We reckon they've got a secret handshake that predates the concept of commerce... probably learnt it form a woolly mammoth. Regardless, they have had a fair amount of time to hone their skill over at Bichot and it's very apparent in their wine. The Vire-Clesse has wonderfully intense aromas of lemon, peach and mango with subtle minerality on the finish. A timeless classic.
  4. Anette Closheim 'Rouge' 2015 German Red Wine

    Anette Closheim 'Rouge' 2015

    £11.75

    £11.75

    It was frustrating. Britta had a soft spot for well-built men; but she also liked the gentle touch. A little subtlety. Seemingly, you can't have both. However, she wasn't one to compromise. Holding out for the perfect partner, she rewrote her online dating profile to be a little more ambiguous. "Wanted, structured, spicy relationship with a well-made partner. Needs the body to deliver. Prefer smooth."

    Being old-fashioned, Dirk didn't quite understand. Bless. He hastened round to "he 'Woman of the Nahe', maker of potions, and she made him just the thing. A velvety composition, with flavours of chocolate, wild berries and mint. What woman could resist such a combo? Well, that remains to be seen... Dirk hasn't been spotted since he knocked on Britta's door.
  5. Anna's Way Sauvignon Blanc White Wine

    Anna's Way Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    "Anna's Song" was recorded by Marvin Gaye while he was going through his divorce with Berry Gordy's sister, Anna. "Anna's Way" can also be interpreted as being about the marriage of two of the main valleys of the Marlborough region though - the Awatere and Wairau Valleys.

    This classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc offers an intense nose of passion fruit and gooseberries with subtle floral notes. It's quite green and therefore the wine is dry to taste but sweetened by the juicy flavours of citrus, passion fruit and gooseberries. Its lingering finish makes you feel the same way as Marvin Gaye, who obviously doesn't want his relationship with Anna to end.

    The song finishes with the words: ""Anna, Anna, Anna, this is Anna's song, loving you all night long!"" I can assure you, you too will sing the song after a sip of Anna's Way!
  6. Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Wine

    Apostrophe Larry Cherubino 'Stones Throw' White Blend 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    If the tiles fall correctly in a game of Scrabble, the word "Gewurztraminer" will earn you 729 points. If you run "Riesling" off the end of it, you will get a lower score but a handy 50 bonus points for using all your letters. Larry Cherubino, a man also worth a few points, has an even more winning way of putting the two together, by blending them into a refreshingly heady, exotically spicy and rose petal-tinged bottle of loveliness, that would be the perfect foil for a mild curry and a Turkish delight dessert. Or you could ditch the Scrabble and drink it while watching Countdown and waiting for a rude word to crop up!
  7. Aymura Pinot Noir Chilean Red Wine 2013

    Aymura Pinot Noir 2015

    £15.00

    £15.00

    It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible black... Well, don't come crying to us, Dylan Thomas; if you were after stars you should have gone to Chile's Elqui Valley, 250 miles north of Santiago.

    This is not only home to Viña Mayu, whence cometh this Old World-style of Pinot Noir, which has beautiful gamey, farmyard-y notes alongside flavours of fresh, sweet red cherry, but the region is also an astrotourism centre, with at least eight internationally-renowned observatories.

    Their extremely hot days and near-freezing nights offer some of Chile's most exciting winegrowing conditions, and it has attracted an increasing number of adventurous winemakers over the past fifteen years or so. Bet you don't get that in Llareggub!
  8. Beaujolais Selection Parcellaire 2015

    Beaujolais Selection Parcellaire 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    From a region that cannot and will not be ignored, this Beaujolais...hang on a minute, don't be like that. Stick around, you'll thank us.
    As we were. This Beaujolais "Selection Parcellaire" offers a refreshing and fleshy palate with a subtle yet full-body featuring red fruit flavours. The nose is both fine and intense with floral notes of violet and peony, enhanced by the fruitiness that is characteristic of Gamay. The finish is long, refreshing and ends on a fruity note. This is a real breath of fresh air from Beaujolais. Serve slightly chilled and you'll see how 'Gamay-zing' this wine really is!
  9. Bibo Runge Riesling 2015 German White Wine

    Bibo Runge Riesling 2015

    £16.75

    £16.75

    Born into nobility, Bibo Runge had no choice but to follow the path his ancestry determined and take arms as Knight Errant. Given his predecessors, much was expected of him, and he excelled, even against their legendary feats. But Bibo felt something was wrong. Why should he exercise his ability merely in the pursuance of personal fame?

    Choosing to throw off the outdated chivalric code, he made the protection of common people his crusade, installing himself in a quiet town in the guise of a humble blacksmith. It must have been instinct. For the Devil, intending to ride out, sent his horse to the town to be reshod. Other blacksmiths would have quailed and bent to the task; but Bibo sent the horse packing, battling him with his bare hands. This wine celebrates Bibo, displaying all the intensity, purity and steel of the man himself, with a finish that lingers as long as the tales.
  10. Blanc Vi Natural 2015

    Blanc Vi Natural 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    Once upon a time, Espanyol, with regard to wine, seemed to be all about Riojas you could drink with a knife and fork. No longer, those crazy Iberians are such trail-blazers these days, that they've made a stonking red wine and named it "Blanc!" Not to mention the blend... surely, we haven't seen a more unusual collaboration since Aerosmith joined forces with Run-DMC. "Cabernet with, Garnatxa and Xarel-lo? That'll never work!" Spoiler - works.
  11. Blau Mari Spanish Red Wine 2014

    Blau Marí 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    To be a good teacher, it's important to understand your class, its dynamic, who's disruptive, who's the quiet genius etc., and to respond accordingly. Well, winemaker Moisès Virgili does the same thing with his Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnatxa vines.

    He says "The vineyard blocks are small and idiosyncratic. Some face the sea, others don't, and the soil is different from one row to another, so we treat them all individually'. This approach coaxes out all the refined, noble black fruit of the Cabernet and the lush red fruit of the Garnatxa and combines them perfectly in the winery to create an A* wine.
  12. Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Vintage White Wine

    Bougrier Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that you have to go to the New World to get really good value in the classic French grape varieties, like sauvignon blanc. Or is it? Here's a Loire Valley sauvignon that's as crisp, fresh and grassy as a newly mowed meadow, with elegant minerality and a subtlety and restraint that's reminiscent of classic Sancerre or Pouilly Fume, at half the price. Which sounds like pretty good value to us. So set aside pride and prejudice and leave yourself open to persuasion with this classic white wine.
  13. Cotes Du Rhone 'Blason' Esterzagues French Red Wine

    Côtes Du Rhône 'Blason' Esterzagues 2015 *WEB EXCLUSIVE*

    £9.75

    £9.75

    No matter how rugged someone thinks they are- everyone wants to hide under a favourite blanket at some point. This Côtes du Rhône is the red wine equivalent. Juicy red berry fruits knit together with tummy warming spices. Woven from Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre this red wine duvet is completely unfiltered, giving it an extra silky texture. A perfect tipple with friends or when you're feeling 'Rhônely'...ahem.
  14. Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc Wine Chile

    Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    This Sauvignon just goes from strength to strength when it comes to great valued wine. Achieving an astonishing standard for the price, this white really shows true Sauvignon Blanc character.
    Carta Vieja have a brilliant knack of getting serious zeal across in both their reds, and whites like this one. This is a crisp, clean white wine with a lovely note of elderflower. Cracking party wine. Cracking everydayer. Open it up and take some time out to relax.
  15. Casa Lluch Verdil Spanish White Wine

    Casa Lluch Verdil 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    This dry, delicate and very endearing Spanish white from an almost unheard of grape - Verdil - reminds one a little of Sauvignon Blanc but that's to sell its individuality short.

    If we were to make a music video to describe this wine, we would film a cowboy, chopping a pineapple seductively in an oasis in the vivid sunshine of the Arizona desert, with the chirping of crickets emanating from the lush vegetation and someone spraying themselves with a hose in the background.

    Why? Because this wine is simultaneously dry, refreshing, sexy, herby, zippy and evocative. See for yourself!
  16. Château Haut Courneau Graves Red Wine France

    Château Haut Courneau Graves 2015

    £11.50

    £11.50

    With a beautiful garnet robe and appealing aromatic aromas, it follows up on the palate expressive red fruits (strawberry and blackcurrant), delivered in an elegant and round attack. The wine is well-balanced with unctuous, with silky tannins.
  17. Chateau Jalousie 2015

    Château Jalousie 2015 - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £6.50

    £6.50

    Château Jalousie have just gone straight to the to the top of our popularity list for lightening up our day with the following food matching advice for their delightful half wine bottle of Claret: "Something juicy and relatively dead would be best." It's good to see there are some funny glands that are alive and kicking in Bordeaux. Just sayin'.
  18. Chateau Lafleur de Haute Serre Cahors

    Château Lafleur de Haute Serre-Cahors 2015

    £13.75

    £13.75

    Chateau Lafleur de Haute-Serre is gives such pleasure to the consumer, much like a fine novel it is a wine that you want to see right through to the end. It is a powerful, well built red with lovely expressions of earthiness and black truffle on the nose. Softness and elegance dominate the palate with a wonderful balance between acidity, tannins and red fruits.
  19. Château Lalene Cuvée Prestige

    Château Lalene Cuvée Prestige 2015

    £9.75

    £9.75

    The Lalene is an elegant and complex wine rich with flavours of black fruit and fine grained velvety tannins, before a long satisfying finish.
  20. Château Le Virou Carmel d'Aiguevives Côtes de Bordeaux Blaye 2012

    Château Le Virou Carmel d'Aiguevives Côtes de Bordeaux Blaye 2015

    £11.00

    £11.00

    We say the following with the utmost affection for Château le Virou, as they are clearly very capable winemakers and have certainly charmed us with this silky, blackcurrant and dark chocolate-fruited cracker... but it nearly broke us trying to work out what they were talking about when describing the Château's history.

    In their words (via that most devious of translators, Google), they say: "On the road which curves of Blaye with Saint Savin, halfway between these two cities, a severe wall does not fail to intrigue the walker, seeming to dissimulate some mysterious residence to him." Exactly.
  21. Château Les Nauds Red Wine

    Château Les Nauds 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Oh spare us the "better when it was rough-and-ready" nostalgia. We remember city centres where, once upon a time, it was frankly dangerous to go out if you were a bit of a misfit. At one time, even the south-west of Bordeaux used to have stretches of mean and derelict vineland that might, if they liked the look of you, let you have a tiny amount of rough white wine.

    So hats off to the Cardarelli family for their huge and continuing investment in bringing 280 hectares of such land into the 21st century and spinning straw into gold. Now you're more than welcome to enjoy their invitingly accessible fruit-packed red wines, even if you're a punk rocker!
  22. Chateau Unang Blanc White Wine

    Château Unang Blanc 2015

    £12.00

    £12.00

    James King, the genius behind this delicate white wine, should change his name to James, King of Elegance. Of course, a title as grand as this must be earned...

    But we think he's rather deserving. James pours his blood, sweat and tears (not literally) in to his wines so that they deliver the perfect balance of flavour and refreshment for everyone to enjoy. The Chateau Unang Blanc, for example, offers subtle hints of star anise and paprika on the nose before fruit takes over on the palate. White peach and pineapple flavours are most prominent and follow through to the finish.

    All hail the King of Elegance!
  23. Chateau Unang Rosé Wine

    Château Unang Rosé 2015

    Now £10.50

    Was £11.50

    £10.50

    A cool glass of rosé is fast becoming the go-to summer wine and this pale coloured drop from Château Unang shows us exactly why the pink is so popular!

    Strawberry aromas lead on the nose and are accompanied by notes of lychee. The palate offers thirst-quenching citrus flavours of grapefruit and lemon, quickly followed by goosberry. And with a minerality on the finish, this refreshing drop of rosé is perfect for sharing during those long summer evenings in the garden.
  24. Chablis Jules Billaud Burgundy Wine

    Chablis Jules Billaud 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    There's a lot of fuss in Chablis about a precocious new talent called Samuel Billaud, of Billaud-Simon fame. He's regarded as one of the best wine producers in the region and definitely one to keep an eye on.

    Luckily for us (and possibly down to a family feud... but we're staying out of it) he has decided to branch out on his own, so we're ecstatic to introduce the Jules Billaud Chablis, made by Samuel exclusively for Oddbins under his eldest son's name. It's guaranteed to grab you firmly by the Chablis.
  25. Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux 2015

    Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux 2015

    £29.00

    £29.00

    So Chablis. Right, it's bone dry, no oak, you might even say steely. Fetch it from a posh Premier Cru vineyard and then what happens? Tell you what, let's have a glass of that Chablis Premier Cru Les Fourneaux then, made especially for Oddbins by Samuel Billaud, and find out.

    OK: all your white flowers and lime are there on the nose, but there's something else, on the palate - it's more delicate and balanced, with a subtle fruitiness. It's, well, elegant. A bit like you in your best frock/suit, sweetheart.

    So that's the difference, we suppose - normal Chablis: designer casuals, Premier Cru: that perfectly fitted dress/sharply tailored suit you only wear when you're really out to slay them. Sorted!
  26. Cheverny Blanc 'Les Bruyeres' 2015 White Wine

    Cheverny Blanc 'Les Bruyeres' 2015

    £10.50

    £10.50

    The beautiful Loire Valley has long been famous for goat cheese. (Or is it goat's cheese? Or goats cheese? Goats' cheese maybe?) But one cheese in particular, preciously guarded by the locals that produce it, is esteemed above all others. The reason, it's lately become clear, is that the goats responsible are fed purely on a diet of heather (or Bruyeres, in French).

    The challenge was to find a wine that went perfectly with such a delicious nibble. Something peary, appley, honeyed at the edge, and refreshing enough to cut through the creamy delight! A contest was launched, and ambitious winemakers from miles around set to blending the perfect tipple. The prize, of course, a goat. Made out of cheese. Decorated with garlands of heather.
  27. Cigarra Portuguese Red Wine Portugal

    Cigarra Red 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Portuguese wines are increasing in popularity and, going by this example, it's little wonder. Offering extremely high quality, distinctive wines at fantastic value for money, this country certainly deserves to become as well known for its table wines as for its ports.
    This particular red is a smooth, easy-drinking blend of little-known yet fantastic grape varieties, including Castelão, Camarate, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Miúda.
  28. Clos Bellane "Altitude" Côtes du Rhône Rosé Wine 2013

    Clos Bellane "Altitude" Côtes du Rhône Rosé 2015

    £13.00

    £13.00

    At Oddbins Towers we call this The Pink Panther. It bears no resemblance to the sneaky cartoon character in the title sequence of the film and its winemaker is certainly not a bumbling fool like Inspector Jacques Clouseau.

    No, we call this The Pink Panther because it's a diamond, a precious and brilliant diamond with a delicate pink hue. In fact this rosé wine is so good and has proven so popular we've had to employ Cato to protect it in our warehouse. He's just so unpredictable; half our staff are off with injuries.
  29. Costières de Nîmes Serabel French Wine

    Costiéres de Nîmes Serabel 2015

    £8.50

    £8.50

    A gorgeous place, Costiéres de Nîmes; the kind of place that makes you want to Google cheap flights to the south of France and wangle some lieu time at work and spend some time nibbling on local cheeses and sipping on lustrous, swarthy red wines. Well, whilst Serabel cannot deliver said lifestyle, it can certainly deliver the wine. Dripping with damson and black cherry fruit, and bristling with gorgeous peppery spice and a hint of vanilla pods, it's a holiday in itself and cheaper, too, at just £8.50.
  30. Coteaux Du Giennois L'Oselier White Wine

    Coteaux Du Giennois L'Oselier 2015

    £13.75

    £13.75

    The grape vines in the Loire Valley had taken a hiding the last few years. When Mother Nature finished flinging harrowing hail she summoned sizzingly searing summers. The weather gods wrath resulted in lower harvests and ...more importantly increased prices of the famous wines of Sancerre and Pouilly Fume. Fear not damsels and dudes who adore these wines! Our knight in shining amour comes galloping from the slopes of the Cote Du Giennois. Heralding shining crispness, armed with orange, pears and flinty flavours. A heroic alternative to our aforementioned, besieged friends and a Sauvignon to shield us during hard times.
  31. Couleur De Rouge Red Wine

    Couleur De Rouge 2015

    £7.00

    £7.00

    Claudia Serra is a specialist in the Languedoc region and produces some exceptional wines at Vignerons. All of the fruity wines produced are fresh and balanced while not to excessive in alcohol.
    The Couleur De Rouge is garnet red in colour with hints of blue. It offers a fresh and clean palate, with touches of red fruits and spice. On the finish it has fresh and mellow tannins.
  32. De Loach Heritage Reserve Pinot Noir 2014

    De Loach Heritage Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Dear Marje Proops, my husband went out two days ago to buy a bottle of brown sauce to pour on to his egg and chips, and he still hasn't returned. At first I thought it would be OK, but now I realise it's looking like Cheerio. What do you suggest I do? Yours, Cindy Biscuits, Newton-le-Willows.

    "Well Cindy, I think your only option is to bin the chips and cook yourself a nice duck breast. In the absence of sauce, you can pour yourself a glass of red wine, I'd suggest this light but slightly spicy Pinot Noir, with strawberry and cherry flavours balanced by a beautiful acidity that will cut right through the meat. And it's lovely on its own after you've washed up.
  33. De Martino Legado Chardonnay 2015

    De Martino Legado Chardonnay 2015

    £11.00

    £11.00

    The goats of the Limari Valley live the good life. The weather's a bit cooler, so they don't get too hot, there are cacti to scratch your itches on and hillsides to gambol up.

    There was also an abundance of delicious grapes, until De Martino realised that those limestone slopes and that cool climate were perfect for making wine.

    The goats got over the loss of the grapes though, because they found they love nothing better than putting their hooves up with a chilled glass of citrusy, mineral Chardonnay.
  34. Domaine Condamine Syrah / Mourvedre

    Domaine Condamine Syrah/Mourvèdre 2015

    £8.75

    £8.75

    Down in the valley. Down in the valley so low, hang your hair over your shoulder, and you can hear the four winds blow. These are words once howled by Otis Redding in a voice that's hard to forget. But there's something else down in the valley, in the Rhône Valley so low, where it opens up and meets the Côtes de Thongue: Domaine Condamine l'Evêque.

    And just as Mr Redding knows how to belt out a tune, these people know how to belt out a wine: this Syrah/Mourvèdres has mouth-watering fruit purity, balanced out by savoury complexity, decent acidity and smooth tannins. This wine got soul.
  35. Domaine des Amphores Saint-Joseph 2015 French Red Wine

    Domaine des Amphores Saint-Joseph 2015

    £20.00

    £20.00

    St Joseph Domaine Amphores, that's the domain of vases to us 21st Century folk. In ancient Greece, Amphora were often used to tell the tales of extraordinary events. They'd paint images of Jason and his Golden fleece, the Minotaur or Achilles and his bloomin' ankle. That was his week spot because as a baby, Zeus washed him in eternal potion or whatever and dipped him in by his ankle, just change foot, then he would've been fine! If we still painted our heroes on vases I imagine this wine would get an appearance, with concentrated dark forest berry notes, aromas of cloves and white pepper, I'm fairy sure Domaine Amphores would've conquered Troy, it's conquered our palates.
  36. Domaine Parisse Macon Fuisse 2015 White Wine

    Domaine Parisse Mâcon Fuissé 2015

    £19.00

    £19.00

    Now, we're going to tell you something but you need to promise not to scream... Macon-Fuisse is made with Chardonnay, in fact virtually all white Burgundy is. We know, we know this must be terriably harrowing. What has Chardonnay ever done to deserve this reputation. Snooty guys standing around wine bars declaring, "I follow the drinking rule ABC... anything but Chardonnay, hahaha." Bad snooty guy, that's not funny and it's terriably misinformed! The fact is, white Burgundy is one of the finest wine styles in the world and Macon-Fuisse Parisse is no exception. With it's lovely, creamy texture and intense notes of white peach and honeysuckle, wines like this will bring Chardonnay back into fashion faster than platform shoes!
  37. 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.
  38. 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.
  39. 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.
  40. 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.
  41. 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!
  42. 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!
  43. 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.
  44. 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...
  45. 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...
  46. 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.
  47. 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!
  48. Gemma Moscato d'Asti Vigna Fiorita Italian White Wine

    Gemma Moscato d'Asti Vigna Fiorita 2015

    £9.50

    £9.50

    This Moscato is a soft, gentle and charmingly sweet white wine, but saved from being sickly by fresher, sage and citrus elements. Which sounds a bit like Alan Titchmarsh, now we come to think of it.

    Indeed, much like Alan, it's maybe not the most dangerous tool in the box, but you could very happily while away an afternoon with it in an English country garden, with it a bowl of strawberries and cream.
