FINE WINE

Fine Wine: what exactly does it mean? What makes it ‘fine’? Who decides these things anyway? In truth, it’s a little arbitrary. Here at Oddbins, it denotes premium wines of stratospheric quality that our Buyers have simply fallen head over heels in love with. They are often hand-crafted and released in small parcels, eliciting stampedes of fans to rush into our shops as soon as they hit the shelves. So please, form an orderly queue in true British fashion and prepare to fall madly in love, as we introduce… Oddbins’ Fine Wines.

Damn Fine!

  • Orin Swift Slander 2015

    £45.00

    £45.00

    Aged for 10 months in French Oak (30% new) this wine has concentrated aromatics of cherries, raspberries, dried rose petals, a touch of sweet oak and a hint of forest floor. The entry is silky with a classic Pinot Noir palate: loads of ripe red fruit, savory undertones and a principled backbone of acidity. Balanced, lean and complex, the wine finishes softly at length.
  • Petite Arvine Valais 2017

    £27.00

    £27.00

    Striking aromatics of lemon peel, salted almonds, stone fruit and candied ginger, while also retaining crisp acidity, that combines to deliver a refreshing, highly complex wine.
