WHITES

 

Porrais Reserva 2017
Douro, Portugal 13% abv
£12.99
A delicious, crisp, stony white from the Douro? Isn't that the home of magnificent ports? It is, but the Douro's high sloping vineyards are ideal for this citrusy style, too. Enjoy intense, creamy, lemon curd fruit underscored by brilliant minerality. This delicious white makes a lovely partner for sauced fish.

 

Hunter's Riesling 2017
Marlborough, New Zealand 12.5% abv
£14.99
If you enjoy steely dry whites, remember that Riesling produces arguably the finest white wines of all.  With citrus, spicy apple and floral aromas, and zesty lime flavours, this 2017 is ravishingly fresh on its own, or with seafood or spicy Asian cuisine.

 

Farnese Pecorino 2016
Abruzzo, Italy 12.5% abv
£11.49
A ravishing, crisp, fruity white from Farnese, crafted from Pecorino, one of the top varieties of Abruzzo. With delicate stone fruit and pear flavours and a note of candied peel, this refreshing drop is also delicious with white fish, chicken or seafood.

 

Portinho do Côvo Branco 2016
Setubal, Portugal 12.5% abv
£8.99

This terrific, crisp white is made by multiple award winning Jaime Quendera using the native Fernão Pires grape and Muscat. It's crisp, citrusy and stony fresh with blossom notes and spice. Ideal with prawns, grilled white fish or crisp salad.

 

La Vôute 2016
Vin de France 12.5% abv
£13.99
A rich but zesty Burgundy style wine at an affordable price. Voluptuous and creamy with vibrant spiced apple, peach and bright citrus flavours.

Serve in large bowled glasses to let it open out, with chicken, or fish with a lemony sauce.

 

Aquarius 2016
Central Victoria, Australia 13% abv
£11.49
Marsanne and Viognier are top white grapes of the Rhône, here ripened in Victoria's high central vineyards. Crisp stony freshness balanced by luscious, ripe peach and apricot with a dash of spice - a big hearted, new release. Gently chill and serve generously solo or with creamy white meat or vegetarian dishes.

 

REDS

 

Domaine St. André 2017
Languedoc, France 13% abv
£9.99
Syrah with a dash of blossom scented Viognier - the magic recipe for the pricey reds of Côte Rôtie in the northern Rhône. Raspberry, cassis and blueberry aromas with ripe cherry flavours and smooth tannins. Great with grilled meats and winter casseroles.

 

Alambrado Gran Selección 2014
Mendoza, Argentina 13.5% abv
£13.99
An absolute classic Cabernet with typical ripe blackberry, blackcurrant, plum and vanilla aromas. Dense, velvety black fruit flavours, smooth tannins and a spicy oak finish. Renowned for its fine Malbecs, this fine red is sure proof that Cabernet is destined to be Argentina's next big thing. A superb match with roast red meats or steak.

 

The Pastor's Son 2015
Barossa Valley, Australia 14.5% abv
£15.99
Gorgeous, oak aged Barossa Shiraz commemorating the late, great Peter Lehmann, Baron of the Barossa. Full on and super smooth, it's rich and chocolatey, with a peppery vanilla edge. It's supreme with rare beef steaks or roast lamb.

 

Bambera de Barbadillo 2016
Cadiz, Spain 14.5% abv
£9.99
A blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Shiraz and Tempranillo. It's soft and silky with ample plum and red berry fruit and a supple spicy finish. A charming red for sipping solo, at a barbecue, or with chicken.

 

Bartolomeo Lorenzi Rosso Veronese 2016
Veronese, Italy 14% abv
£9.99
This irresistible red is made by Amarone specialist Cantina di Negrar. Taking grapes from Valpolicella's Classico region topped up with a dash of Amarone, the wine is brimful of gorgeous, juicy, cherry fruit and spice. Goes well with virtually everything!!

 

Don Manuel Carmenère 2016
Rapel Valley, Chile 13.5% abv
£9.99
Carmenère is Chile's gift to the wine world and this gorgeously rich and smooth wine is a sublime example. It's from one of Chile's oldest estates, Viña La Rosa, and reveals luscious wild berry flavours with a layer of smoky spice. This will sing with roast duck or lamb.
