The Italian grillo grape is well-suited to Sicily’s gorgeous warm, sunny climate and the Sicilians love its light, easy-drinking style. This is a great value example – fresh, rounded and peachy with almond and floral hints.

The UK is increasingly falling in love with the well-made, excellent value wines from Hungary, and this is a prime example. Refreshing pinot grigio made from grapes grown overlooking the Danube River, producing a light, soft, refreshing wine with lemon and apple flavours and a hint of herbs.

 

Caoba Viognier, Mendoza, Argentina bottle £18.95

A lighter yet full flavouered style of Viognier. The nose leaps out of the glass with aromas of ripe stone fruit. Flavours of peach and apricot are followed by a subtle sweet spice with a lingering finish.

 

Amalaya Torrontes Riesling, Argentina bottle £19.95

A dry and delicate white with great freshness, hints of citrus and grapefruit, crisp acidity and a distinctly mineral finish.

 

Picpoul de Pinet, Domaine de la Serre, South France bottle £20.50

An absolute classic from the popular Marlborough region of New Zealand: crisp, aromatic and packed full of typical grassy, zesty lime and gooseberry character.

 

Organic Fiano, Sicily, Italy bottle £23.95

Wonderfully bright and expressive with rich aromas and bags of tropical fruit, this has a soft mouthfeel and great purity. Zensa in Italian mean “without” referring to the absence of any chemicals or pesticides in the winemaking process.

 

El Cante Albariño, Spain bottle £25.50

The popular albariño grape is the ultimate seafood companion. The El Cante Albariño comes from Rias Baixas, the beating heart of this grape’s homeland in the Galicia region of Spain. Light and zesty with rounded stone fruits – very sippable.

 

Chapel Down Bacchus, England bottle £28.50

The Bacchus grape is named after the Roman god of wine, and is one of the most-planted varieties in England. The award-winning Chapel Down winery in Kent has shaped it into a mind-blowingly fresh, grassy, grapefruit, gooseberry and nettle-filled wine that really gives good sauvignon blanc a run for its money.

 

Montes Alpha Casablanca Chardonnay, Chile)bottle £29.95

This exceptional winemaking estate in the cool Casablanca Valley has carefully crafted a rich, ripe, tropical Chardonnay with some buttery, vanilla hints from a short time in oak, and a lingering, luxurious finish. Perfect with baked brie.

 

Domaine La Roche Chablis, ‘St Martin’, France bottle £33.00

An exceptional, ripe, fresh and refined Chardonnay with textbook Chablis minerality and complexity thanks to the estate’s fantastic vineyard plots. St Martin is the patron saint of Chablis, and his relics were kept at this family-run domaine’s monastery for many years. A truly elegant wine – one to linger over.

 

FIZZ

Codorníu Brut Rosado, Cava, Spain bottle £19.95

A vibrant pink bubbly made in the same way as Champagne by one of the oldest and most famous Cava producers. This is made with pinot noir, monastrell, macabeo and xarel-lo grapes, and is matured for nine months, adding a hint of toasty complexity to the ripe summer fruit flavours.

 

House Champagne: J de Telmont Grande Réserve NV,  France bottle £33.50

J de Telmont was founded in 1912 and – four generations later – it is one of the few remaining family-run Champagne houses. This is soft and fruity, with a little classic Champagne yeastiness, and provides super value for money.

 

Sparkling Shiraz, Peter Lehmann Masters Black Queen, Australia bottle £36.95

Beautifully deep in colour with a persistent fine bead. The bouquet shows hints of satsuma, plum and black cherry leading to an explosion of dark exotic fruits on the palate. A very special sparkling red for times of celebration.

 

Nyetimber Classic Cuvée, England bottle £45.95

Now this is really special – Nyetimber in West Sussex is arguably the finest wine estate in England. Its vineyards are planted with the three grapes used in Champagne (pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier), which are then made into exquisite sparkling wines using the Champagne method. Complex layers of baked apple, citrus, honey and pastry flavours – the perfect home-grown Champagne alternative.

 

Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV, Champagne, France bottle £57.95

Undoubtedly one of the greatest Champagne houses – and still family-owned – Louis Roederer is perhaps best-known for being the producer of Cristal. This is deliciously rich and opulent in style, with crisp fruit character blending seamlessly with nutty, yeasty notes. One of the top non-vintage Champagnes.

 

Pol Roger 2004 Vintage, Champagne, France bottle £98.50

A favourite of Sir Winston Churchill himself, Pol Roger’s vintage Champagnes never disappoint, and this is no exception. The 2004 was aged in Pol Roger’s deep underground cellars for 8 years before being released, and has developed brioche and honey hints to complement its citrus, white blossom and stone fruit flavours.

 

ROSE

Bacca Nera Negroamaro-Primitivo, Italy bottle £20.50

One of our favourite reds on the list – similarly to the Valpolicella, a small amount of the grapes are allowed to dry out to concentrate the flavours, making this a rich, intense, silky wine with supercharged sweet fruit flavour. Super value.

 

Kaiken Reserve Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina bottle £21.95

This estate was set up by the award-winning Montes winery from Chile (we sell their delicious Montes Alpha Chardonnay). The malbec grapes for this wine come from old vines in the premium Mendoza region of Argentina, and the wine is gently aged in French oak. The result is a smooth, ripe, fragrantly fruity wine with rich chocolate and coffee notes – very sippable, especially with red meat or terrines.

 

Wirra Wirra ‘The Good Catch’ Shiraz Cabernet Petit Verdot, Australia bottle £22.95

This superb, well-respected wine estate was founded in the early 20th century by Robert Strangways Wigley, a cricketer for South Australia. The Good Catch is a vibrant, juicy wine full of cherry and blackberry flavours and spicy oak character. A good match with lamb and beef.

 

Côtes du Rhône, Les Abeilles Rouge, Jean-Luc Colombo, France bottle £23.50

A fresh, silky red blend of grenache, syrah and mourvèdre grapes from old vines, with bright red fruit character and hints of herb and sweet spice. ‘Les Abeilles’ means ‘the bees’, and a percentage of the profits of this wine go towards honeybee conservation projects. Delicious with terrine, works well with mushrooms.
