Blind Spot Rutherglen Muscat Halves

Sultanas dancing in demerara sugar pretty much sums up this ace value sticky vino.  - Olly Smith

( The Mail on Sunday 20th Apr 2014 )

£7.25
The Society’s French Dry White

Wine of the week: The ultimate wine o'clock white - bright, light, fresh and utterly delicious. Set your watch by it! - Olly Smith

The Society's Corbières

A multi-award-winning red of great depth and flavour. - Jonathan Ray

Glorioso Crianza, Rioja 2010

Strong redcurrant flavours in every mouthful. It cheered up my macaroni cheese (which takes some doing) and was still going strong when it came to apple flan. There was none of the heaviness one often finds with Rioja, and at £7.95 The Wine Society is ripping off no one. - Jane Clare

Glorioso Crianza, Rioja 2010

This delightfully fragrant, opulently rich and velvety smooth Rioja is packed with intense cherry and dark fruit flavours which are superbly balanced by gentle tannins and subtle oak while beguiling notes of liquorice enhance it's magnificent lengthy finish. Complex, full bodied and superbly rounded, this is the kind of reward that anyone who abstained from alcohol (or even just wine) over Lent deserves. - Raymond Gleugh

Duo Des Deux Mers, Sauvignon-Viognier Vin de France 2013

You want aromatic? You've got hyper-aromatic here in this distinctly unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, bottled under the increasingly interesting 'Vin de France' catch-all appellation. Bursting with gooseberry, lychee and explosively juicy peach, the well-tempered palate has bags of fruit, a great thrust of lime and grapefruit to freshen and a handily moderate 12% alcohol. A terrific all-round package. - Mid April Newsletter

The Society's New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

A gooseberry-scented, lime fruit filled gem. This super savvy Sauvignon is made by masters of NZ SB Villa Maria and the grapes come from their own Marlborough vineyards. At Youngest Girl's family birthday lunch on Sunday my father denounced all Sauvignons as cheek-suckers. So I didn't let on how lovely this one, from the vintage of a generation, was. All the more for the rest of the table. - Helen McGinn

The Society's Corbières

Silky finesse, fragrance and a core of deliciously firm cherry-like fruit. - Olly Smith

( The Mail on Sunday 13th Apr 2014 )

£7.50
Duo Des Deux Mers, Sauvignon-Viognier Vin de France 2013

Combines hints of viognier's fresh pineapple with the sauvignon's gooseberry background, which together cry out to be drunk with fish. - Brian Elliott
