Kilikanoon Oracle Shiraz, Clare Valley 2012
An opulent nose displays elevated notes of ripe plums, dark chocolate, exotic spices and charred-oak influences. A fine and focused palate emerges, where flavours of fresh berries, cherry plums and dark chocolate feature predominantly, beautifully enhanced by classy use of French oak barrels. With time in the glass, a thick stream of licorice, blackberry, cloves and sappy, cedar-oak develops, and an unexpected treat appears in the form of truffle and leather notes. At all points this wine feels fresh, fine, and distinctive. A wine easily consumed whilst young but with clear rewards to those you choose to cellar for longer.
Summertime Claret! This lovely Bordeaux blend strikes the perfect balance for a summer red; fresh blackcurrant, berries and red plum, with a leafiness and perfume that brings brightness to the palate. Medium body and light tannin. A touch of cedar and spice from time in bottle gives depth and leads to impressive length on the finish. An easy food pair to meats, cheeses and flavourful vegetable dishes.
Pasquiers Rose, Pays d'Oc
Grenache and Cinsault blend from the sunny Pays d'Oc. Fruit-forward and rounded, with surprising texture and concentration for a rose at this price point. We worked hard to find it! Strawberry and spice, with a lengthy finish. A great aperitif, but equally good for sunny lunches.
I can vividly remember the first time I tasted this. Mercurey is at the southern end of Burgundy, over an hours drive due south from Beaune, and it gets warmer and the grapes riper. As such the Chardonnay is wonderfully rich, ripe, and powerful, but due to Faiveley prowess nothing is allowed to go to extremes. They have managed to harness the power with soft oak ageing to produce a really single vineyard masterpiece. Treat yourself!

Tenuta San Guido
Guidalberto Tenuta San Guido 2015
From these legendary winemakers who broke the rules in Tuscany, Guidalberto has great energy and length with an aroma of dark fruits and spices with nuances of violets, roses and a hint of tobacco. Smooth textures and deep plum fruits combine with a crunchy redcurrant character and a hint of dark chocolate to create a wonderfully balanced wine with excellent definition. Plenty enough going on to improve for another decade in bottle.
Senorio de Sarria
Senorio de Sarria Crianza, Navarra
From the Navarra region, right next to Rioja, this is a deep and rewarding blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, alongside Spanish grapes Garnacha and Graciano. Like Rioja, but with more structure and black fruit flavours. One of our bestselling sub £10 wines - a brilliant all-rounder.
