This ‘textbook’ New Zealand sauvignon wowed the panel with its gooseberry and blackcurrant-leaf notes that ‘jump out of the glass’, according to one taster. Juicy and refreshing, with tingling acidity. A 2022 Wine Champion with real personality.
This friendly and fresh-tasting claret is one of The Wine Society's most consistently popular wines. Supplied for over a quarter of a century by the family-owned Maison Sichel, the bespoke blend varies from vintage to vintage, but merlot takes the lead role, and the wine is made without any oak to avoid masking its bright red and black-fruit flavours. This is made to be drunk on its own or with a wide variety of dishes. The stylish new label features three Greek muses, inspired by those that adorn one of the city’s great landmarks, the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux opera house. Please note: We've taken the step to remove the capsule (the covering on the top of the bottle) from this wine, as part of our sustainability strategy. This will have no adverse effect on the quality of the wine but reduces waste. The wine is also bottled in a light-weight glass bottle (420g or less) that reduces our carbon emissions, as it requires less materials to produce and less energy to transport.
From Chéreau-Carré in the western Loire Valley, this is the ideal accompaniment to shellfish, delicious on its own, but good too with chicken, charcuterie and much more.
Sebastian Payne MW namechecks this superlative red in his introduction to our 2022 Wine Champions offer, and with good reason. A generous, aromatic red bursting with character, this wine is incredibly popular with members, and deservedly so.
Our panel of tasters voted this a Wine champion in 2022. ‘This got me thinking about risotto!’ said Joanna Locke MW, and the panel agreed that this Italian pinot grigio’s soft texture, floral and citrus notes with a hint of almond would be the ideal pairing. Elegant, clean and refreshing.
Frosts devastated much of the Languedoc in spring so a big change was needed to create the fragrant, fruity and dry 2021 which, if anything, is better than the 2020. Vermentino becomes the major element with an important addition of very fine chardonnay. A final third is made up by sauvignon, grenache and viognier.
One of Italy's best buys, Verdicchio makes wonderfully vibrant, crisp and refreshing wines. This is from a beautiful and organic single vineyard and has a full, dry style, with citrus, pear and mineral notes that slips down easily with or without food.
A smooth, fleshy and oaky Rioja, made in the traditional style from tempranillo aged in American and French oak. Round,juicy and mellow with the lovely leathery fruit aromas that are so typical of the classic style, produced for us by Bodega Palacios at Laguardia, a spectacular fortified village, in the heart of Rioja Alavesa.
From family-owned Casa Ermelinda Freitas, and the sandy soils of Setúbal, south-east of Lisbon, this friendly Portuguese red combines local grape castelão, which is all juicy red fruits, with a little alicante bouschet which brings darker black fruit and fleshiness.
Absolutely textbook Vinho Verde, with zingy citrus fruit complemented by a moreish nuttiness and subtle spritz on the palate. A very light and easy-drinking Portuguese star that is a Wine Champion in 2022.
Ripe, fruity grenache-syrah blend from an outstanding producer in Vinsobres. The colour has depth and the nose is beautifully marked by raspberry and redcurrant fruit. There is nothing heavy here, just loads of vibrant fruit.
