The Gooseberry Bush
It’s easy to see why The Gooseberry Bush has been a customer favourite for years now. It’s that leap out of the glass, grassy fresh, citrusy aroma, with just as much vibrant pizzazz on the taste. A great party white or partner to spicy stir-fry or salads.
Il Papavero Pinot Grigio
Decanter reminds us “how fantastic today’s best Sicilian wines are”. That’s certainly true of this crisp, fruity Pinot Grigio from Scipione Giuliani, the genius behind our bestselling Il Papavero range. Il Papavero is a delight with white meats or risotto.
If you enjoy a white with a real zip of freshness along with appealing ripe fruit, this ocean-cooled Chardonnay from Portugal will perfectly fit the bill. Lovely as a glass on its own, or served with seafood, salmon or chicken dishes.
The Huguenot Chenin Blanc
Chenin Blanc has proved itself truly noble in South Africa. This grape travelled the world from its home in France’s Loire to find that the sunshine steeped vineyards of the Western Cape is also an ideal home.The result is a wine perfect for baked white fish, richly sauced chicken, or on its own.
Alma Andina Torrontes
This wine, crafted by Steve, has wonderfully fresh aromas of honeysuckle, spice and citrus fruits, and an exhilarating, crisp finish. It’s a refreshingly different apéritif and an inspired choice with spicy Eastern cuisine.

This is a special Pinot Grigio from Alessandro Gallici, the winemaker behind many of our best selling northern Italians. Being a local, he knows all the best sites for seriously good grapes. Enjoy solo or with mushroom ravioli or creamy linguine.
Baron de Barbon Blanco
Citrus-scented Barón de Barbón carries the flag for cutting edge, contemporary white Riojas. It’s the sibling wine to our bestselling red Rioja, both made by the Murúa family. You’ll find it delicious served chilled with tapas, barbecued chicken or spicy prawns with noodles.
Colle Marianna Soave
Top Soave “deserves the kind of acclaim white Burgundy gets” writes Jancis Robinson, and with the creamy ripe fruit minerality of this wine you can see why. Gently chill and serve with fine white meat or fish dishes.
In Visionario Alessandro combines local Friulano with other grapes such as Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer, to create a wonderfully aromatic white that’s a massive customer favourite. It’s terrific on its own and has natural affinity with fish dishes such as trout with almonds, creamy pasta or crab risotto.

Hole in the Clouds Sauvignon Blanc - New Zealand
Chill it down, unscrew the cap and unleash the flavours. You'll smell that fruit before the glass nears your nose. Hole in the Clouds is a blast as a glass on its own, and equally delicious with salmon with saucy salsa, barbecued prawns, chicken or Thai green curry.
Domaine Servin Chablis "Les Pargues"
In the 1950s the Servin family began to restore Les Pargues and now 50 year old vines deliver wine of impressive concentration.

Serve gently chilled with seafood or white meats.
Authentic, exclusive Czech Pilsner in large half-litre bottles – big on flavour and refreshment. It’s suitable for drinking any time, and while locals in the Czech Republic would enjoy it with the surprisingly tasty roast pig’s knee, it’s great with traditional English fare, like pie and mash, too.
La Chiamata Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

With its easy going, ripe red berry flavours and fragrant vanilla character, this supple Rioja is great to drink on its own or with simple suppers such as lamb chops, char-grilled vegetable kebabs or chicken.
Dark Corner Durif Shiraz
We think he’s ‘blended a blinder’ as the locals say. It’s firm and full, yet abundant in gloriously ripe, liquorice and spice scented fruit with an underlying note of oak. Smooth enough to sip on its own, but even better with hearty red meat dishes.
The tiny berries they produce give Cabalié extraordinarily rich, ripe flavours. Boasting 12 medals in five vintages, this now legendary wine is in its element with a slow braised beef casserole.

Roche Lacour Crémant de Limoux
No wonder Roche Lacour has become our best loved vintage fizz of all time. It’s made using the same painstaking process as Grande Marque Champagne, yet is far better value. With toasty richness, it's the smartest way to pop a cork and add a sparkle. Enjoy on its own or with deserving canapés.
Champagne Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée NV
Impeccable style of creamy richness, blossom scents and toasty length in the NV fizz from one of Champagne’s top houses. A high proportion of Chardonnay and reserve wines, plus at least four years’ ageing in the cellars, ensure a very fine bubbly.
