 Wines of the moment

White. Vidal Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016  ~ New Zealand normally £12.99 now only £9.99

This amazing wine has won all manner of prestigious awards recently and has been very richly deserving of all its bling. An absolute classic Marlborough Sauvignon in the way I remember them from a decade ago, this wine is genuinely exciting and has weight of flavour to go alongside that citrus punch. A classic

Rose. Chateau Rimauresq Provence Rose 2015, France £15.99

Like the Vidal this wine is a textbook example of its type, oh, so subtle with delicate red fruit notes, a delightfully creamy texture and perfectly balanced acidity. Not loud and upfront but elegant and almost stealthy.

White. Yalumba Eden Valley Viognier, Australia normally £15.99 now only £10.99

This is the wine which best shows off the amazing efforts of wine maker Louisa Rose in getting Viognier to ‘perform’ properly. Textured and rich and laden with fresh apricot and peach flavours but balanced by a pleasing backbone of acidity and just a dash of spice.

White. Aux Quatre Vents Blanc 2014, France normally £9.99 now only £5.99

I loved this wine last year when it was a tenner and at this price I am doing little cartwheels of joy, I have to be careful having another glass or I may start body popping.

Red. Beatnik Malbec 2015 ~ Australia normally £7.99 now only £4.99

Everyone seems to love Malbec these days and the Argentinian variety has usurped Aussie Shiraz as the go to big and rich red so what have the Aussies done about it? Well if you can’t beat em, join em. This luscious, hearty Malbec shows what happens when you have beautifully sun-kissed fruit and squeeze as much as possible in to a bottle. Have this with a big slab of steak.

Red. Adelina Shiraz 2012 ~ Australia normally £20 now only £10

An almost insane shiraz but stopped from being exiled to the lunatic asylum by some really engaging softness, warmth and spice. A far smarter style of Shiraz than you’d expect from OZ

Red. Manatura Espera Carmenere 2013 ~ Chile normally £8.99 now only £5.99

Mocha, blackcurrants, plum skins and a lovely velvety smooth texture. A delicious expression of Chile’s national grape.
