Contino Reserva, Rioja 2007

Gorgeous, smooth, balanced, elegant and still has years ahead of it. - Christine Austin

( Yorkshire Post 12th Apr 2014 )

Pinot Gris Altenbourg, Domaine Weinbach 2011

For those who love heady, rich pinot gris, this is divine. It combines a honeyed sweetness with a very refined dry finish, with its racy natural acidity keeping it fresh. Expertly made (unoaked) by the wonderful Faller family at arguably Alsace's best family domaine. - Rose Murray Brown

( The Scotsman 12th Apr 2014 )

Maury Solera 1928 cask number 890

An unusual, tangy, figgy fortified wine with a roasted nutty rancio flavour and toffee caramel finish; not unlike Madeira with its fresh acid. - Rose Murray Brown

Hilltop Corvinus Hungarian Red 2012

a vividly fruity, spring-like red made mainly from the local kekfrankos grape. - Fiona Beckett

( The Guardian 12th Apr 2014 )

Lugana, Cà dei Frati 2012

One of my favourite examples with its sweet almond fragrance, toasted almond notes and fresh acidity. - Carol Brown

Punto 8, Sicilia Ottoventi 2013

A delicious, crisp Sicilian white that would be perfect with fish - Fiona Beckett

( The Guardian 12th Apr 2014 )

Soalheiro Alvarinho, Vinho Verde 2012

Bone dry and truly thrilling ...herby, mineral and citrus peel-spiked ...from misty Monção on the border with Spain: a vinho verde jewel. - Jane MacQuitty

( The Times 12th Apr 2014 )

Quinta de Azevedo, Vinho Verde 2013

Almost bone dry ... thirst-quenching ...sparky, floral, stone fruit. - Jane MacQuitty

( The Times 12th Apr 2014 )

Pont du Gard Rouge, Domaine Maby 2012

Perfectly suited to a spring barbecue … deliciously rich but elegantly smooth. A blend of syrah and cinsault, it slips down easily and, if you can make it last to dessert, the coffee notes will complement the flavoursome bursting berries of a scrumptious summer pudding. - Sam Wylie Harris

( Associated Press 11th Apr 2014 )

Maydie Tannat 2010

Dark and brimming with cherries, chocolate and fruit cake. Complex and a superb pairing for chocolate mousse and artisan dark chocolate.- James Viner

( Kent & Sussex Courier 11th Apr 2014 )
