The Oddbins Take

Given that Australia is known internationally for its unique blends and forward-thinking wine-making, it makes sense that Longview have used Australia's hero red variety, Shiraz, and blend it with one of Italy's finest, Barbera. Named Vista as an acknowledgment of the sense of place that makes Longview wines, defined by Varied Inclines Slopes Terrain & Aspects. Which makes it a perfect Oddbins wine as 'Oddbins' is in fact an acronym itself! Yes, you'll find our wines Open Deliciously... D... Dedicated... Beerenauslese In Neverland Symbiosis... Fine! It's not an acronym...


Longview's Shiraz has all the hallmarks of a cool-climate style - spicy, savoury with crunchy berry fruit. The Barbera provides a juicy, cherry-like brightness and taut acid backbone that gives the wine a wonderful structure. A fantastic Aussie red you can find at the Official Demarcated Dystopian Bilateral Inoculated Nectarine Shop... Is that one better? It feels like it might be better!

    Summertime at last. Let that pressure drop right off your shoulders as you bask in the unpredicted sunshine and take in the sweet smell of...burnt sausages? You forgot to turn them again!

    Whatever you're cremating on the BBQ this summer, we've got your back when it comes to drinks. These 6 light and refreshing beers are perfect for when you're manning the grill, but be sure to drink and cook responsibly, they're designed for easy drinking! And as the evening goes on and gets cooler, we recommend cosying up around a fire pit with Joana (or any of the other reds for that matter..)

    We're sure you've all heard the saying 'never judge a book by its cover'. And, usually, we stand strongly with this point when it comes to wine. After all, there can be some fantastic labels stuck onto some not-so great wines, and vice versa. But we make an exception for this selection of red wines. Just look at those labels. Beautifully charming, right?

    “But what are they compensating for?” you ask. “Don’t be so pessimistic” we retort.

    The truth is, these bottles aren’t hiding anything. They look stunning and stylish because that’s exactly what these sumptuous wines are. Don’t believe us? Give them a try…
