1 x Biftu Bobal Familia Bastida 2015

Luscious and full of floral nuances combined with fine balsamic and herbal notes, big dark berries and ripe, pendulous plums, along with a firm mineral background. It starts softly on the palate and broaden out with sweet, ripe fruit, hints of toasty oak and ripe mouth-coating tannin. All kept in check by good, fresh acidity.

1 x Albarino, Nai e Senora, Terra de Asorei 2016

'Nai e Señora means ‘mother of the land’ and the label on this bottle depicts this noble woman. The sensational Albariño grape is on top form in this aromatic wine. With a floral nose with touches of exoticism on display, the palate tightens up with citrus tones and it strolls on for a long while. Great Albariño walks a tightrope between heady perfume and white-knuckle drama and Nai manages to make this spectacle look simple. Designed to go with all manner of seafood and fresh fish, you will adore this wine and it will give you a chance to leave your Sauvignons behind while you pamper your palate with a little aromatherapy.'

1 x Mas Brunet Cuvee du Mazet, Domaine de Brunet 2015

A mix of the regions 5 permitted grape varities, this is a slightly more fruit forward take on the style with soft brambly fruit dancing with some lighter strawberries and undercurrents of liquorice and cola cubes. Some tannin but overall soft, light, with an autumn leaf detail which, combined with the cola cube, is suggestive of new world pinot.

1 x Corbieres, Chateau de Durfort 2014

Dark fruit mixed with heady incense and baking spices. Smoky undertones take this wine to a more seriously high quality plane. Better than many a Chateauneuf du Pape.

1 x Sauvignon de Touraine 'Fleur de Printemps' Domaine de la Rochette 2016

Delicate, fine, nettle, super tang, refreshers-like finish. Elegance with a very pretty finish and good length. This is much more subtle that a Kiwi Sauvignon.. It just has everything you want from Sauvignon - not too much and not too little.

1 x Riesling Stefan Winter 2016

'Today is the day that you order your very first case of German Riesling. Believe me, this wine is worth it and this is because it is truly dry, magically tangy and citrusy and also the proud possessor of a stunning perfume. While I was tasting this wine my cousin and her pal rocked up and they both grabbed a glass – they were so shocked at the flavour I wish I had taken a photograph to capture the pleasure on their faces. Winter is a specialist in making wines that send a glorious shiver down your spine. Take the plunge – you will not regret it!' Matthew Jukes, Money Week

1 x Soli Pinot Noir, Miroglio,Thracian Valley 2015

Stick your nose in this and you get that mouthwatering, autumn leaves, smoky sous bois, minerally pinot perfume, wild strawberry, red cherry, orange rind, sandalwood-clove hints. The palate is mellow and supple, orange-inflected red berry fruit, hint of vanilla wood spice, sweetly suggestive mercurial pinot style all the way, autumnal with soft tannins and a fine backbone of acidity. Yet again, a really moreish, impressive pinot from Bulgaria. Hats off.

1 x Autocarro No 27 2015

"More bravado and cheek than many wines twice its price" 'New wave Portuguese reds are all the rage and as this country drags its vinous offering into the 21st century a handful of talented wineries have broken from the traditional pack and they are using their indigenous grape varieties to great effect. Unique, fascinating and stuffed with blackcurrant fruit and spice, this is a mighty little chap and it has more bravado and cheek than many wines twice its price. I cannot recommend this wine enough not least because it has wonderful grin-inducing qualities.' Matthew Jukes, Money Week

1 x Alphabetical White Vin Blanc 2017

A blindingly good wine for the price made from one of my favourite grapes, roussanne, that you find in Northern and Southern Rhone blends, but in this case from South Africa. It is a masterful little wine that wont overtake proceedings but will add a lovely bit of character to a lunch or an evening - a scent here and there of stone fruits and mountain herbs as you lift the glass to your nose - with just the right amount of fruit and character for foods like fish, chicken, or fresh pasta with vegetables or riccota. It will be lovely with light starters like burrata and olives. It sits firmly in, if not at the very summit of, the unbeatable-value midweek bottle category. If you are in one of those households where someone likes Sauvignon but someone has gone off it, and you can't agree on what to drink then try this.

1 x A A Badenhorst Secateurs Red 2015

The hero grape of South Africa - the Cinsault component ensures excellent ageing, as well as immediate drinkability - a lovely smooth, supple palate. As Adi has always said, he hopes to imitate "the great old wines of the Cape."

1 x A A Badenhorst Papegaai White Blend 2017

Grown up doesn't mean boring! The 2017 rendition of our favourite Papegaai has more depth and layers - a crunchy poached and dried pear, quince, and lemon biscuit number. For those not familiar with bushvine Palomino (and when it's not made in to sherry,) it offers stunning subtle aromas of salted green apples - very fine and nuanced.
