I found the 2013 vintage to be delightful and not what I expected from a Lebanese wine.

This Champagne is amazing. I never knew Champagne could be made with 6 grape varietals and to discover how different this is to others was a real revelation. I got a single bottle from http://www.wineman.co.uk/product/moutard-6-cepages-champagne where I could buy just a single bottle and I now go back for cases of the stuff

I loved the 2013 vintage of the Tinpot Hut Sauvignon Blanc. What I have found is that the wine improves with each vintage as the winemakers Fiona and Hamish with the assistance of Matt Thompson really strive to produce a magnificent wine. The 2015 vintage is one of the best in my opinion and you can get some in the UK at http://www.wineman.co.uk/product/tinpot-hut-sauvignon-blanc-marlborough which is a superb resource as there is no minimum order. This bucks the trend withe most merchants who want 6 or 12 bottles as a minimum

A brilliant example of Cabernet from Carmen. They really know how to extract the best from each varietal and this is no exception. Teeming with Blackcurrants and a slight spice, gorgeous with steak and available in the UK at www.wineman.co.uk

Superb wine with Thai food. The flavours really bring out the heat and combine well together. One of my favourites and a new varietal for many people but one of the best from Argentina. You can find this wine in the UK at www.wineman.co.uk
