RH55041 RH55041 Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc, Guigal 2018

"Delicious. Lighter than I would have thought, and very well rounded. Was great with chicken, and on its own. Tastes like a much more expensive Rhone to me!"

US9141 US9141 Peltier Road Californian Sauvignon Blanc 2019

"Not as good as a traditional NZ Marlborough Sauvignon. But has a unique look, very pale and a very fresh taste. Went very well with tarragon chicken. I’ll be buying more. Look forward to drinking it on a hot summers day, well chilled. Good value at the price."

"After spending many years working in France and trying splendid wines, this was very easy drinking smooth on your palette. Nice and easy drinking and brought memories of drinking at a local wine bar in St Nazaire. Just about to order a few more now. "

FC39361 FC39361 Tannat-Syrah ‘Aramis', Laplace, Vin de France 2018

"We enjoyed this with roasted vegetables... a good mix of tannin and fruit for a mid-week dinner... came as part of WWF so cannot comment on value but seems good for the posted price if you like these grapes."

US8611 US8611 Chateau Ste Michelle Columbia Valley Riesling 2018

"Oh yes I did like this. I don't recognise the experience of Mr Brennan - thought that this was a lovely wine, nice as anything from Alsace. Going to order more. It's off dry, aromas of green apple and gooseberry or something, but versatile and also lovely on its own."

"A cracking good find and well worth the modest price tag. Apples, pears, lowish alcohol, great nose, moreish, don't chill too much and drink with plain sea food, grilled chicken, vegetables. Thank you WS - let's keep it on the list so we can drink it in the summer of 2021 please. Julian L Payne"

FC38581 FC38581 The Society's French Pinot Noir 2019

"Got to agree with the other two reviewers who gave this one star. A nice purple colour, doesn't smell of much but it has an aftertaste that really is quite unpleasant. Maybe only be £7.50 but definently one to avoid."

MX20314 MX20314 Six Stylish Riojas

"Really enjoyed this case. I've long been a fan of La Rioja Alta so to find that they produce the Society's Exhibition Rioja Reserva was a treat. The Glorioso, Tobelos and El Pacto also really stood out, being good for drinking on their own but also standing up to some spicy food. Thoroughly recommend this case as well as those individual wines if you are not after a mixture."

SA16171 SA16171 Meerlust Estate Red, Stellenbosch 2017

"Bought 6, tried the first last weekend after decanting into a jug for 2 or 3 hours. It probably still needed more air time. Very lovely though, more red fruits than black I thought to start with but later picked up on the black currants and cherries. Very lively and fresh with plenty of energy, but I think I'll enjoy the rest in a couple of years or so when the acidity has mellowed out a bit."

Mr David Kear ( 25-Nov-2020 )

Ms Wonnie Barry ( 25-Nov-2020 )

£5.95
SP15841 SP15841 Casa La Rad Solarce, Rioja 2018

"I found this rather an odd wine. It is heavy but slighty thin. Initially it is a rich and plummy, with lingering tannins, but the fruit fades very quickly. A punchy attack that is not followed through. It is good value though at £8.50. "

Mr Keith Jordan ( 24-Nov-2020 )

£8.50
SP11871 SP11871 Viña Real Gran Reserva, Rioja 2010

"I thought this was as detailed in the description. Nose was good. Dark Berries, Caramel, Feint Oak. Mouthfeel was good. Good fruit, Cherries, black tea, nicely integrated tannins, slight alcoholic astringency that will disappear in time. Better in 3/5 years. Delicious for the next 20. Given 4 stars could easily be 5 in a few years."

Mr Gary Hibbard ( 24-Nov-2020 )

£20.00
SP15881 SP15881 Pepe Mendoza Mares de Luz Monastrell Giro, Alicante 2019

"Will Barry has nailed the tasting notes so I will add a couple of superficial additions. One of the first things you will notice is the weight of the bottle, the glass is unusually thick. Really. Secondly, I love the label, the design is very appealing and I think you'd happily pay twice the price of this in a restaurant. Lastly, the wine, lots of black fruit, well balanced. Will picked up the vanilla notes, which was a good catch; the wine is aged for 10 months in French oak. However, I have an aversion to wines where vanilla is a prominent note. Rest assured that this is very subtle, hovering in the background. Otherwise, this wine would be consigned to the bin. However, am happy to confirm that it is a win. Easy to drink but complex enough not to disappoint. Has enough body to be a good match for food, I enjoyed it with some good quality dark chocolate."

Mr Steven Naylor ( 24-Nov-2020 )

£9.50
FC38241 FC38241 Monbazillac, Château Pech La Calevie 2017

"A well-balanced, elegant dessert wine: light yet flavoursome, honey sweetness without cloying syrupiness. Good with fruit-based desserts, and even surprisingly good with the citrus hit of a key lime pie. It won't cope anything particularly heavy - remember this is Sauternes style, not like the raisiny tones of a Samos Anthemis, or a Moscatel."

Mr Iain McDonald ( 24-Nov-2020 )

£13.95
FC38721 FC38721 Duo du Midi, Pays d'Oc 2019

"A very smooth, mellow red. Not too sweet, not too dry and eminently glugable with or without food. I'll certainly be back for more of this one - if you guys have left me any! :-) "

"Yes, very full on - ultra smooth, with very dark flavours - almost licorice. Silken aftertaste. Yes, it's interestingly different, but choose very carefully what to drink it with. "

CE11191 CE11191 Concha y Toro Corte Marcelo Limarí Pinot Noir 2019

"A superb hedonistic Pinot Noir. Loads of fruit, easy tannins and enough acidity. A touch sweet but obviously (successfully) designed to be a crowd pleaser. Ridiculously good value."

Mr Colin Mitchell ( 24-Nov-2020 )

AA3081 AA3081 Familie Mantler Roter Veltliner, Niederösterreich 2019

"Very enjoyable and refreshing wine. I was struck more by it's minerality - even a touch of salinity - than it's fruitiness, though there is some pear flavour. Unusual and well worth a try. "

"I have some good friends' in Lisbon and when in the UK we are always looking for a nice Vinho Verde for our fish dishes. This is the closest thing we can find to that perfect taste, balanced light fizz and dry wine. Strongly recommend with an oily fish. "

"I am probably not the only person to establish a Six O'clock cocktail routine to mark the end of yet another slightly dull Lockdown day. This really did impress, with a superb juniper(?) bouquet. A great price and I suspect this is a great ambassador for the Wine Society in terms of Christmas presents. Bland yet stylish label"

SH381 SH381 Litre of The Society’s Medium Dry Amontillado Blend

"Remarkable value: blind tasted alongside [other merchant's]. Whilst the two from other sources were pleasant, they had nothing to match the enormous flavour this revealed. Lighter in body but allowing the wine to circulate the taste buds produced an astonishing zappy flavour. Having had a break from WS sherry for twenty years or so, what a comeback and what a welcome discovery"

CM19301 CM19301 Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux, Moulis-en-Médoc 2015

"This wine was below average at best. Maybe it needs more time laying before I open the next bottle. Overall it was thin, and in my opinion overly sharp and lacking any real kind of structure. I decanted and aerated the bottle a few hours before taking my first glass. Upon having that first glass I said to myself probably needs more time in the deacnter to , so left it overnight and came back to it the next day at lunchtime, however there was no real improvement. I have 6 bottles still left in my reserve, which I think I will leave there probably for another few years. When I withdraw more of these in say about 3 to 5 years time I will return and place my thoughts here again. Hopefully this one just needs a bit more time to get it where it needs to be"

Mr Javier Monvoisin ( 23-Nov-2020 )

£18.00
BJ8271 BJ8271 Domaine Coudert, Fleurie Clos de la Roilette 2018

"Perhaps not as smooth as you'd expect from a Fleurie, this is rather more robust and earthy. Surprisingly little nose on opening (would benefit from being opened earlier) and initially a bit thin on the palate, but it opens up in the mouth with vibrant blackberry flavours that linger beautifully. Would pair perfectly with pork or chicken, whether roasted or casseroled, especially to offset a little spice in the dish."

Mr Jan de Walden ( 23-Nov-2020 )

£12.95
IT29861 IT29861 The Society's Barbera d'Asti Superiore 2018
