2019 Bila-Haut, M. Chapoutier, Côtes du Roussillon Villages, France
This hearty red is tremendously juicy and spicy with a wicked price tag.
2020 Tapanappa, Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills, South AustraliaWell-balanced and not too exuberant nor expressive, this is a finely tuned and deliciously mesmerising creation.
2020 Crozes-Hermitage Rouge, Maison Les Alexandrins, Northern Rhône, FranceThis expressive syrah is as aromatic and evocative as many wines twice the price.
2017 Quinta da Leda, Casa Ferreirinha, Douro, PortugalThese magnificent wines are a tenth of the price of Barca-Velha, but they lack nothing in passion, build-quality, epic skill and deliciousness.
2018 Petit Verdot by Belle-Vue, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France
This petit verdot is a thoroughly modern wine with a profound flavour that imprints a unique signature on your taste buds.
