Tasting Notes:

Cleanskin Langhorne Creek Shiraz - Simon's Wine of the Month
Langhorne Creek, Australia 13.5% abv
Was £15.99 Now £11.99

If you're a fan of Aussie wine, you'll probably have seen a cleanskin or two. But it's rare to come across one crafted from the fruit of a single vineyard. And although we can't name its winery, the single vineyard provenance of this luscious Shiraz means it is a quality wine made in tiny quantities. Conditions in 2017 produced a long, slow ripening time to give the perfect combination of fruit flavour, aroma and velvety tannins for ageing. Fruity with lovely length, it's great with roasts and cheeses.

 

Santa Julia Malbec 2018
Mendoza, Argentina 13.5% abv
£11.99

Malbec and Argentina - a marriage made in heaven for wine lovers. No other country makes such a seductive style, and few cellars excel so consistently as Familia Zuccardi of Santa Julia. The 2018 Santa Julia Malbec is a smooth, easy going and fruit filled red made for everyday enjoyment right now.

 

Tesoro de Rosario 2017
Bullas, Spain 15% abv
£10.99
Buy 6, get 1 free                              

Tucked away in a remote corner of Spain, high up in the hills and hidden by dense forest, Bullas is one of Spain's oldest winemaking regions. The Romans made wine here over 2,000 years ago. This rich red is made nearly all from Monastrell, grown on ancient, gnarled bush vines and a splash of ripe, juicy Shiraz to lend some spicy blackberry notes. This gently oaked red is a treat with lamb or hearty casseroles.

 

La Trombetta 2016
Gavi, Italy 12% abv
£13.49
Buy 6, get 1 free

La Trombetta is a refined Gavi that hits all the right notes. Piercingly fresh with zesty pear fruit and classic minerality, this wine builds on the family-run cellar's burgeoning reputation as one of Piedmont's finest white wine producers. Classic Gavi, it excels alongside grilled sole or herby pasta dishes such as tajarin (Piemontese tagliatelle) or ravioli with sage butter.

 

Sunday Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Marlborough, New Zealand 12.5% abv
£12.99
Buy 6, get 1 free              

From the New World capital of Sauvignon Blanc - New Zealand's Marlborough - this white hits the mark every vintage. Exuberant grapefruit and grassy nettle character with a bright citrus zip - this has all the usual Marlborough pizzazz and more. It's very moreish solo or with all sorts of seafood, spicy stir-fry or Thai fish cakes.
