"At Christmas, it’s tempting to experiment, to try something new, but deep down, we want reliability. So I’ve been keeping an eye out for wines that are fun, but with the security of quality."

6 bottles of red, 4 bottles of white and 2 bottles of sparkling white

Bin number:

2 x Bird in Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir
Adelaide Hills, Australia

Alc vol:12.60% | Line no:480557
The winery is named after the Bird in Hand goldmine that operated through the 1800s. This light and refreshing fizz has a tiny hint of pink colour, with a lively palate that evokes flavours of fresh strawberry. Delicate bubbles lead to a bright finish. It’s a perfect pre-dinner apéritif or celebratory drink.

2 x Catena Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina

Alc vol:13.50% | Line no:045491
Made with 100% Malbec grapes from some of the best vineyards in Argentina, this wine has a complex blend of aromas and flavours. A rich, soft plum and blackcurrant-packed red, it has a touch of black pepper spice, smooth tannins and a long, satisfying finish. Fantastic with roast duck, or try serving it with Asian fusion cooking.

2 x Escarpment The Edge Pinot Noir
Martinborough , New Zealand

Alc vol:14.00% | Line no:599361
This fantastic Pinot Noir is made by renowned winemaker Larry McKenna. New Zealand’s Martinborough region may be most famous for Sauvignon, but it is now quietly becoming an unsung hero for Pinot Noir. Inspired by the great Pinots of Burgundy, this has richer, riper New World character and is comparatively good value. Just add roast lamb.

2 x Waitrose Viña Valdivieso Cabernet Sauvignon
Maipo Valley, Chile

Alc vol:14.00% | Line no:879826
Chile’s Maipo Valley can produce some excellent Cabernet Sauvignon with enticing richness and a hint of spice. Our buyer has worked closely with this top producer for many years to bring you the best wine possible. It has expressive notes of red and black fruits, generous texture and the structure to help it pair with rich meat dishes such as rack of lamb.

2 x The Search Grenache Blanc/Marsanne/Roussanne
Western Cape, South Africa

Alc vol:13.00% | Line no:624580
Beautiful mineral notes from the Grenache Blanc complement the scents of fresh flowers, peaches and herbs of the Roussanne, while the Marsanne gives lovely texture, depth and palate weight. Fantastic with herbed fish or aromatic chicken dishes. Available end June.

2 x Waitrose Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand

Alc vol:12.50% | Line no:087432
Not all Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs taste the same. We challenged the renowned and experienced wine team at Villa Maria to produce one that harked back to the minerally Sancerre style with complexity and restraint. They have produced this exceptional food wine. Gooseberry and citrus flavours abound, with some smoky, stony character on the finish. It complements asparagus, chicken or goat’s cheese dishes.
