The debut release of Marcelin was a winner and the latest
vintage is packed with just as much delicious peach, nectarine and
apricot flavour, with lemony freshness. Serve Cuvée 1907 chilled
with fruits de mer or chicken.
Campanula Pinot Grigio
Dunútuli, Hungary 12% abv £8.99
Wonderfully lemony crisp, Campanula is terrifically refreshing
and top value, too. No wonder it's remained one of our bestsellers
for 15 years. Quintessential Pinot Grigio from a modern cellar and

Niederösterreich, Austria 12.5% abv £10.99
From a cellar in Austria's premium Kremstal region, Danaris is
fabulously crisp, minerally and complex. It's pure Grüner

white, with spice and green apple fruit and a white pepper finish,
Danaris is ideal with roast pork and apple sauce, grilled fish or
spicy Asian cuisine.

medal winner for lovers of exceedingly dense, fruit rich reds.
Ermita de San Lorenzo
Campo de Borja, Spain 14% abv £10.99
60% of the wine is Garnacha from vines planted in 1958. They're
not as prolific these days but the intensity of flavour in the
