Cabernet Sauvignon Metic, Colchagua Valley, Chile 2019

Elegant, beautiful, Cabernet. Infinitely approachable! Blackcurrant with a touch of cedar spice and a really stately structure. Only Chile, and possibly South Africa, can producer a Cabernet that tastes so smart at this price.

Carmenere Metic, Colchagua Valley, Chile 2018

90% Carmenere (once thought to be Merlot)- and orginally a grape from Bordeaux - this is full bodied, rich and scrumptious, and incredibly classy tasting and good quality for the price. Blackcurrants covered in grated chocolate with an intense core and lovely notes of classic herbaceous notes you find in high quality Bordeaux. This is Chile at its absolute best. Serve at every bbq you ever have!

Pinot Noir Jean des Valanges 2018

You just don't expect to get interesting, tasty Pinot Noir aromas and flavours at this price. Rich raspberry and black cherry, dark fruit for Pinot Noir. It's generous and deep with a seductive smokey edge and soupcon of spice. The palate is juicy and fairly full for a Pinot Nior. Effortlessly smooth tannins and a refreshingly low abv make this perfect for long summer evenings in the garden or socially distanced drinks with the neighbours over the front fence.

Tempranillo, Alceo, Familia Bastida, Spain 2017

Spain is undoubtedly the home of great tasting, tongue pleasing red wines and this tempranillo is no exception. Packed full of bramble fruits with a lick of custard and crumble vanilla it’s as delicious as it is great value. Tuck in now and enjoy a bottle immediately!

Coteaux Bourgignons Jean des Valanges 2018

This is elegant, quite light Burgundy, that's exceptionally easy to drink and lovely and pure. Really nice served chilled. It's made from the Gamay grape. An excellent all-rounder with good, and very nice for mopping up the cheese.

Vinicola Carassanese Linea Miru Rosso Piceno 2017

60% Montepulciano, 40% Sangiovese that is soft, juicy and a perfect party wine. Nothing pretentious here, just a really honest little number from the Polini family. I've drunk it 3 times recently and each time I've been amazed by its warmth, charm, ripe fruit and herbs, and can't quite believe what a bargain it is. If only bottles would come around like this more often. We try so many, and know how hard it to source quality at the price when so much is VAT and duty (£4 on at £10 bottle). Supermarket shelves are full of wines that are beefed up with additives to make it seem like they're worth £10 or £12, but often they're hollow. But this really shines. It has real authenticity and effortless Italian flavours. Bravo!

Mas Brunet Cuvee du Mazet, Domaine de Brunet 2016

Rhône meet the Languedoc in this ethereally lovely red blend, Robin’s de facto house red. Think along the lines of a classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape with a soupcon more freshness – a factor of Mas Brunet’s location in windswept limestone plateau of the Terrasses de Larzac.

Nebbiolo, Elvio Tintero 2018

I wouldn't bat an eyelid if you told me this was a Barolo or Barbaresco at over £20. Gentle fragrant rose, quite pale in colour, a hint of strawberry, fired brick and earth flavours. The best producers are those that handle the grapes gently, which in turn expresses the magic of the terroir and shows Nebbiolo at its almost Pinot Noir - like best. The colour is quite pale, like many Barolo and Barbaresco. The aroma is wonderful with brick, earth, stone, cherry, verging towards a Pinot Noir style, with hints of rose and strawberry but distinctly Italian, nice fresh fruit, floral with fine spices and good grip on the finish, but supple. This is not a big wine, but it's an excellent wine.

Llama Malbec, Belasco de Baquedano, Mendoza 2017

Most Malbec at this price tastes constructed. Do you know what I mean? When you go to a restaurant and there’s a choice of wines above the house wine that are usually Merlot, Montepulciano, Pinot Noir, Rioja, Malbec, varying from £22 to £32, but they all taste more or less the same, that makes you wish you’d stuck with your aperol spritz.

Chateau Gelineau, Grand Vin de Bordeaux 2016

To find a classy Bordeaux that has hints of all the things we like – sweet berries, cedar and spicy oak, with good body and concentration - at this price is rare. Note that this super-grand Grande Vin comes from the excellent 2016 vintage, which in this case has helped to propel a comparatively modest claret into the realm of Cru Classé. Drink with: rosbif!

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 'Les Brulis' Domaine de Mauperthuis 2018

"This young, sonorous red has true fruits-of-the-forest notes on both the nose and palate and even though it is a slim, slinky-hipped red it still packed a punch of flavour that many red Burgundies can only dream of. I am often disappointed by fighting-priced Pinot Noir, but this wine is a splendid discovery." MatthewJukes.com (Money Week)

David & Nadia Topography Pinotage 2018

From vines planted in 1991 and 1998 reaching altitudes of 240m, where the soils are pure granite, while lower down the granite is decomposed. The fruit is partially destemmed, and around 20% is whole-bunch fermented, which takes place in a mixture of concrete and vertical foudres. It's a lovely expression of Pinotage, displaying a creamy, sweet and ripe nose of red fruits. In the mouth it has fine-grained tannic grip, framing some lovely fragrant cherry fruit alongside black pepper spice and wood notes. A hint of pomegranate and raspberry appear on the mid-palate and hang around on the finish. An elegant wine.

Valpolicella Ripasso Monte Santoccio di Nicola Ferrari 2017

Nicola Ferrari possibly warrants sainthood for his transcendentally delicious Valpols, Ripassos and Amarones. Elegant, perfumed, with silky strawberry and cherry liqueur fruit and savoury, earthy notes, and a hint of that magical aroma of fine Amarone, this is a wine for your most luxurious dinner parties.

A A Badenhorst Family Red 2016

'The 2016 Family Red Blend is a blend of 71% Shiraz, 13% Grenache, 11% Cinsault and 5% Tinta Barocca. It has a very pure bouquet, quite floral and intense, with dark cherries, black plum, warm gravel and light truffle scents, the 80% whole bunch completely disguised. The palate is medium-bodied with quite grippy tannin. There is good backbone here, quite dense but well defined with a chalky, slight austere finish, partly because Adi now undertakes more aging in concrete. Give this a couple of years in bottle.'

St Joseph 'Petit Pere' Aymeric Paillard 2016

The 2016 is really sensational, the nose is amazing, with beautiful dark fruits, some black olives, a touch of herbs and a touch of fine wood. It has a beautiful juice feel and chewy texture and old world flavours. I love this wine. It tastes so real. I could sip it for ever. It also keeps for several days once opened so you can keep coming back to it, which is a sign of a very good wine.

Tesselaarsdal Pinot Noir 2018

A wine with a more than unique history and story. The small village of Tesselaarsdal in the Overberg, 24km North East of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley is named for East India Company settler Johannes Tesselar. On his death in 1810, he bestowed the land to his freed slaves and owner/winemaker Berene herself is a descendant on one of those very slaves. If you look closely at the label, you can make out 2 people walking across the mountain. This is Berene and her Grandmother.

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2015

This is becoming not just a top Tuscan wine but an Italian first growth, but still really is a wine for those in the know. A Bordeaux blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The pedigree is there in the vineyard. From the next hillside over, you can see Sassicaia’s legendary first vineyard, and Ornellaia, where they make Massetto. Tenuta Sette Cieli also sits above the famous vineyard Ca’Marcanda of Angelo Gaja!. But the best thing is the price remains sane as it’s not actually in the Bolgheri appellation, as no one thought when they drew the Bolgheri boundary that someone would be crazy enough plant above the woods, that are above Gaja’s vineyard. But they have!

Amarone Monte Santoccio di Nicola Ferrari 2015

Our Monte Santoccio Amarone has always been a show-stopping wine, but this 2015 vintage has reached such a peak of achingly delicious, elegant, concentrated, complex gorgeousness that we can hardly find the words. And, for us, that’s a rare thing indeed. Perfect with strong cheeses.

Ombrone Cupano 2016

From the outstanding 2016 vintage; this is a Super-Tuscan, made from Cabernet and Merlot. You're getting a sort of Tuscan Pomerol, or St Emilion, but it ages with the grace of the Brunello. It’s the first vintage that has had a small amount of Cabernet Franc added, for a bit of aromatic complexity, freshness and roundness. I suspect Lionel planted Cabernet Franc after his friend, the winemaker from the great Chateau Cheval Blanc, visited. It’s a very accomplished wine, and really superb price for a wine of this quality. This vintage is special, and as usual, the wine will give huge pleasure soon after arriving. For people who have never known great wine, this is the bottle to convince them that there is such a thing, and that there is value in spending up, without spending a fortune.

Concentrated, but not overly so, fresh and mineral, with taut compact fruit. The aromas are quite closed, but there is super tight blackcurrant, licorice, savoury wood and garrigue notes and a hint of pepper. The palate is firm but supple.

Vignolo Vinding Montecarrubo 2016

Italy's finest expression of Syrah. This is gorgeous, classy, old-school in some ways - so that if you like Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundy, you would enjoy this, yet it expresses the joy of Sicily. The terroir is in Melilli, an extinct volcano - south of Etna - with limestone, marine fossils. Made by wine legend Peter Vinding-Diers.

Brunello di Montalcino Cupano 2009

One of the most beautiful most sensual wines we've ever drunk. 95pts - top Italian wine in TASTED Journal with Sassicaia. Beautiful vintage for Cupano Brunello. Cocao dusted nose, herbs, gentle deep and round with excellent structure. Fabulous for the cellar though a wine that you can drink now but will be wonderful from around 2016.
