Rocher-Figeac A soft, fruit driven and very pleasing St-Emilion which proves you can find exceptional value for money in Bordeaux. Pair this with a hearty stew or by itself during a quiet night in.
Borgoluce Prosecco Lampo This is everything you want from high quality Prosecco. Lovely peachy fruit, freshness, even floral notes and minerality. The bubbles are fine, and the finish lingers on the palate. Both pleasing and very moreish. An ideal aperitif.
Marco Porello Langhe Nebbiolo A delicious red from Marco Porello, which leans more towards the brighter, red-fruited, prettier style of Nebbiolo than the richer, more austere examples of the grape. Very easy drinking but still with a touch of grip. Ideal with pizza or a Carbonara.
Les Hauts Pemions Muscadet sur Lie A sur lie Muscadet and a plate of crustaceans is truly a treat that’s hard to beat. This offers up all the crisp acidity and zesty freshness you expect from a Muscadet. Incredibly refreshing and a perfect example of its kind.
Pulenta La Flor Malbec The La Flor range from Pulenta is all about drinkability. This Malbec is soft and voluptuous, with a great balance between fruit and oaky spice. The fruit is bright, and the wine has the tannic structure to go perfectly with a steak.
Domaine Lyrarakis Voila Assyrtiko Assyrtiko is a fantastic variety. This is focused and citrus driven. Think white grapefruit and lemon with that salty, coastal tang that keeps you going back for more. Enjoy this high energy white with Mediterranean seafood dishes.
Cincinnato Nero Buono Polluce Cincinnato is a quality focused cooperative based in Lazio, Italy. This is soft, elegant wine made from the Nero Buono variety (a grape rarely seen by itself rather than amongst a blend of other grapes) offers classic flavours of ripe red cherry and plum on the palate, with gentle, velvety tannins. A lovely pairing with hard cheeses and red meat.
Marco Porello Camestri Roero Arneis Roero, in the North of Piemonte, is known for delicate Nebbiolo and the fresh, high-energy Arneis white. Here, Marco Porello makes floral, pretty and aromatic Arneis. This is a versatile white which is perfect alongside a charcuterie board, but also has the stuffing to pair well with white meat.
Louis Guntrum Pinot Noir Light, pure and full of crunchy red berry notes. This is a tremendously refreshing, high energy Pinot from Louis Guntrum which you could chill down slightly and drink on a sunny afternoon in the garden. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a red wine to pair with fish, look no further!
Tandem Immacula Viognier/Viura Navarra North-East of Rioja, in Spain, comes this impressive blend of Viognier and Viura. The Immacula balances the richness of Viognier with the freshness of Viura perfectly. Some use of oak gives this wine fullness and generosity. This is an excellent wine to pair with a chicken in white wine sauce and could even stand up to a bit of spice.
Ramilo Tinto This is a juicy, fresh blend of indegenous Portuguese varieties. Bright red berries, a touch of spice and tremendous drinkability are offered up in this versatile wine from Lisboa. It complements cured meats wonderfully will refresh your palate if enjoyed with some spicey food.
Petit Chaumont Gris de Gris A beautifully bright and softly textured rosé which offers up pleasing flavours of ripe summer berries. This wine seriously over-performs at its price point and can hold its own against top Provence rosé. Beautiful with seared tuna and salads.

NV Frozza Prosecco Valdobbiadene Val Mesdi A very elegant Prosecco here. It’s aromatically intense and drier than most Proseccos, with an abundance of fruit. Frozza make serious wine. They are a small, family producer, who farm the vineyards themselves and take a low-intervention approach to wine-making. Low dosage gives this fizz a long, dry finish. Superb!
2020 Antoniotti Pramartel (Alto Piemonte) From the foothills of the Alps in Northern Piemonte. Antoniotti are a charming, boutique winery that blend Nebbiolo with other local varieties such as Vespolina, Croatina and Bonarda. The wine is structured, with just the right amount of grip to pair well with red meat, but full of juicy red cherry fruit, fresh acidity and a herbal lift.
2021 Louis Guntrum Gewurztraminer Dry Dry Gewurztraminer is a fascinating thing. This is full-bodied, and very oily in texture. It’s certainly not high acid, but Guntrum manages to keep this bright. There’s the signature Gewurz spice, along with all that exotic fruit; lychee, mango, persimmon. This can be a great match for a fish curry, or a spicy German sausage.
2020 Yannick Amirault Bourgueil Cote 50 TheThe Cote 50 is a light, juicy and approachable style of Cabernet Franc from the Loire with notes of ripe blackcurrants, red berries and a subtle hint of black pepper. The tannins are silky and there is a very moreish acidity. Try this with some Chinese style duck breast!
2021 Fratelli Alessandria Langhe Favorita From one of our favourite Barolo producers comes this crisp, zesty Favorita. This is a superb example of the variety. It’s floral and tropical on the nose and clean and racy on the palate. It’s an attractive wine that will satisfy a wide range of palates. I’d drink this alongside delicate fish dishes, oysters and goats cheese.
2018 Domaine de la Madone Fleurie Vieilles Vignes This Beaujolais punches way above its price point. It’s super silky and elegant, with crunchy berry fruit and a lick of spice. This will work beautifully with game and mushroom dishes.
2021 Newton Johnson Southend Chardonnay Hemel-en-Arde A superb cool-climate chardonnay from the south coast of South Africa. It is Burgundian in style, yet with a slightly more honeyed, tropical edge. Very bright and fresh and perfectly balanced. A heavenly match with creamy chicken dishes.
2021 Roger Sabon Lirac Rich, generous and hearty. This Lirac from Roger Sabon never fails to over-perform. If you’re a fan of Grenache and Southern Rhone reds, this ticks all the boxes. It’s a perfect red to accompany a roast beef or lamb.
2021 Palacio de Fefinanes Albarino This Albarino is sharply focussed and incredibly precise. Crunchy green pear and citrus flavours balance the searing acidity to make for an impressively high-energy white. This is exactly what I crave on a hot summers day and would be a treat with a couple of oysters and a squeeze of lemon.
2019 Thymiopoulos Xinomavro Macedonia Xinomavro is often compared to Nebbiolo, with high tannin, high acid, and notes of tar and roses. And much like Nebbiolo, there are also lighter, more delicate expressions of the grape. This one is pretty, elegant and incredibly delicious, with plenty of roses but more red berry fruit than tar. The tannins are soft and the acid is integrated. The freshness of this wine will cut through the fat in pork belly perfectly.
2022 Domaine de Triennes Rosé A Cinsault-heavy blend from an estate owned by two Burgundian legends. Domaine de Triennes produces beautifully fresh rosé, loaded with red berry and pomegranate notes and a coastal minerality, though the wine is also textured and weighty. A great food wine as well as a garden sipper. Try this with salmon and a cous-cous salad.
2018 Pujanza Hado (Rioja) The aim at Bodegas Pujanza is to balance traditional values with modern techniques in order to create beautiful wines that express their terroir. The Hado is a great introduction to their wines. All the things I love about Rioja are here: the soft creamy texture, the structure, the fruit concentration and the drinkability. This is crying out for barbeque flavours and spicy sausages.
Uncorked Classics: £240 all-in
2020 Arlaud Bourgogne Roncevie
This is a superb example of how serious Bourgogne AOC can be. A dark fruit profile of cassis and morello cherry with a mineral thread running through. Medium bodied with impressive length. Biodynamic. Try this Pinot with duck breast and Puy lentils.
2021 Yves Cuilleron Roussanne Vin de Pays
Clean, fresh and very pleasing. A crisp, and aromatic, yet weighty wine with notes of white flower on the nose and under-ripe stone fruit on the palate. A perfect wine for moules frites.
2020 Bruna Grimaldi Nebbiolo d`Alba Bonurei
Uncorked have been working with Grimaldi since the 2014 vintage. The estate showed plenty of promise then, and has since delivered increasingly impressive wines year after year. Their wines are deliciously soft and approachable, and their Nebbiolo d’Alba is a great introduction to what they are capable of. For me, a bright, fruit driven Nebbiolo with pizza is always a satisfying mid-week treat.
2021 Niepoort Redoma Branco (Douro)
Dirk Niepoort makes a plethora of great wine from the Douro, but Redoma Branco has always been a favourite with us. It’s a blend of indigenous varieties from old vines on the right bank of the Douro River. The wine is complex, with tropical fruit flavours and a subtle nutty note. This is a versatile wine which will work well with soft cheese, white fish and shellfish.
2018 L`Hetre (Cotes de Castillon)
A terrific estate in Castillon owned by the Thienpont family; the proprietors of L’If (Saint-Emilion) and Le Pin (Pomerol). Rich, dark cherry and plum fruit, a touch of oak and a silky tannic structure make for tremendous drinkability. 2018 was a superb vintage for L’Hetre. Pop this on the table alongside your Sunday roast!
2020 Felettig Bourgogne Aligote
A bright and textured white made from the forgotten white grape of Burgundy – Aligote. Felettig are a relatively young domaine in Burgundy, but have quickly gained recognition for producing high quality wines in and around Chambolle. This is a great white for roast chicken with thyme and rosemary.
2021 Sesti Grangiovese
This is a bright, juicy Sangiovese, bursting with red fruit. Sesti use the leftover fruit from their Brunellos to make this ready-to-drink, satisfyingly fresh red. One year in oak also gives this wine a touch of sweet spice. Enjoy this wine with a big board of charcuterie.
2019 Donnhoff Riesling QbA Dry
A terrific dry Riesling from one of the finest producers in the Nahe. Weight, tension, fruit and minerality are in complete harmony. A perfect gateway wine into the legends that are Donnhoff. Dry Rieslings such as this pair wonderfully with chicken in a white wine sauce.
2017 Meerlust Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch
A family-owned estate since 1756, Meerlust have continued to raise the bar over the years, and this Cabernet is no exception. This spends 18 months in 70% new oak. It has an intense dark fruit character with orange zest and menthol on the finish. This is everything you want in a Cabernet. A great wine to pair with a BBQ or a steak.
NV Bernard Robert Reserve Brut Champagne
A Pinot dominant Champagne made from the Robert family’s own vineyards in Voigny and Aube. This small grower is now run by third-generation Sebastien. Their Brut Reserve is fresh and bright with richness added from 3 years minimum bottle ageing before disgorgement. This Champagne makes for a great aperitif but also has the richness to stand up to food. Some of us swear by Champagne with fish and chips.
2018 Sichel Pauillac
Sichel have a terrific range of own-label bottlings made for them by the Chateaux they work with (some of them being top names in their villages). After tasting through these, the Pauillac stood out to us as especially good value Bordeaux. This is crying out for a slow cooked shoulder of lamb.
2022 Triennes Rose IGP Mediterranee
Domaine de Triennes is the Southern-French collaboration between the Seysses family (Domaine Dujac) and Aubert de Villaine (Domaine de la Romanee-Conti). Though the wines from their own estates fetch hefty price tags, the wines from Triennes over-preform at their humble price points. This is fresh, pure Rose, very Provence in style. Beautiful with a fillet of Salmon, or just enjoy it in the garden on a sunny afternoon!/DS
