PT2181 PT2181 Smith Woodhouse Madalena Vintage Port 2005

For a serious treat, one that's worth every penny, a fine mature vintage port showing savoury, leathery nuances starting to emerge behind blackberry and mulberry fruit, with a twist of black pepper on a mellow finish. Glorious. - Susy Atkins

Very light in colour but wow, is the colour deceptive. There's a basketload of fruit and spices in this one. The Wine Society guru describes it as pinot noir on steroids and I don't think I can improve on that. - Gerard Richardson

GR1811 GR1811 Kompsos Liatiko, Karavitakis 2019

I was initially put off by its very pale pink/onion skin colour, but its orange peel, apricot and hints of compost nose and fabulous savoury earthy palate and long finish is quite superb. - Rose Murray Brown

GR1811 GR1811 Kompsos Liatiko, Karavitakis 2019

Liatiko is the variety at the heart of the wine and is so light in the glass you expect some insipid wishy-washy red. Stick your nose in and the bright red fruit aromas bounce out of the glass, chock-full of smoky interest. In the mouth the crunchy redcurrant and cherry notes carry a herbal hit through the mid palate and the mouthwatering acidity washes across the tastebuds like waves breaking on a Creatan beach. This is a grand spring/summer red that would benefit from a little chill. Delicious. - Neil Cammies

BJ8481 BJ8481 The Society's Exhibition Fleurie 2019

Weekend treat: Classic raspberry, rose petal and black cherry perfume. Bright primary flavours and modest tannin. This medium-bodied wine has a good intensity of crunchy ripe fruits, with a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper in a fine-textured palate feel. The wine is made by a producer with whom The Wine Society has been working for the past 50 years.  Drink with spring vegetable risotto. - Sally Easton

AU23191 AU23191 Blind Spot Touriga Nacional 2020

Wine of the Week: This is one of a trio of interesting reds that The Wine Society has just added to its Blind Spot Australian range (the others are a Montepulciano and a Carignan). I’ve written about the thinking behind the range before  but, in a nutshell, they’re wines made from small parcels of top-quality grapes, ferreted out before they disappear into big-company blends. The Society chooses from samples sent by its man down under, winemaker Mac Forbes, and he makes and bottles the wine. They’re usually very good value. The Touriga Nacional, a Langhorne Creek/McLaren Vale blend, is darkly fruity with ripe black berries and violets, smoky mineral notes and a splash of spice, vanilla oak and dark chocolate. It’s really quite sumptuous, but not heavy on alcohol and with a savoury freshness that the celebrated port grape has on its home turf in the Douro. It’s ready now but will happily evolve over the next four or five years. If Touriga isn’t a variety you associate with Australia, it’s long been there on a small scale, originally planted for fortified wines, like most varieties. It’s attracting attention now for table wines (as it has been for the last 20–30 years in the Douro), appreciated not just for its undisputed quality potential but its heat tolerance. It goes very well with venison (I had it with haunch steaks flavoured with juniper, rosemary and orange zest and deglazed with tawny port, a spot of redcurrant jelly and crème fraiche) and would also suit lamb, barbary duck, meaty sausages, casseroles or black bean dishes. - Joanna Simon

GE13821 GE13821 Saarburger Rausch Kabinett, Zilliken 2019

Wine of the Week: In its youth, this wine has a stoniness that made me think of white pepper but it’s the clean-cut, deep citrus flavour, with a hint of apricot in the aftertaste, that makes it such a life-affirming, mouth-filling glass of low-alcohol (8.5%) intensity. Delicious as it is now, you could easily keep it for at least a decade to see it gain the more intriguing flavours of mature Riesling – those complex notes reminiscent of a whiff of smoky kerosene (nicer than it sounds) and delicate honey – without any loss of balance, fruit purity or, most importantly, freshness. - Julia Harding

EN1541 EN1541 The Society's English White 2020

[A] cracker which should be convincing enough to persuade anyone to become a member. Opening an English still wine is a distinctive experience in which expectations are muted given the unreliability of our weather. This wine, however, is a stunning example of how to harness a microclimate to full effect. It's made for The Society by Three Choirs [in Gloucestershire]. Having spent time in this area myself I can testify to the qualitry of the fruit grown there and the beautifully abundant fertile gardens at people's homes. This wine shows that to full effect, with a floral nose, gooseberry fruyit and, of course, crisp acidity.Bag a few of these to keep for the spring sunshine and a garden meeting after Easter. - Andy Cronshaw

It has a complexity a step above basic Beaujolais, yet is still a very approachable wine. - Jane Clare

A little cracker from Crete, the nose is suggestive of spiced cherry, redcurrants, brambly berries and herbal notes. Kompsos means elegant in Greek, and this pale ruby red lives up to its name – if you love a plush pinot noir, you’ll be impressed with this handsome label. Made in a modern style from liatiko, a local variety, despite the light colour this wine has a wonderful intensity, with ripe cherry, raspberry, more creamy red fruit, warm spice and a soft silky finish full of finesse. - Sam Wylie Harris

Fontodi is a well-established producer just to the south of the village of Panzano.

Meaning "holy love", [Saint-Amour is] one of the lesser-known areas or crus within this famous appellation. [This wine] has a pungent perfume of ripe red fruits that wrap around the old nostrils in a warming embrace. In the mouth the bright raspberry and black cherry fruit is crisp across the tastebuds, with the balanced acidity refreshing the palate leaving you wanting a-mour. There is the slightest tannic structure which adds a little weight through the mid-palate and finish. A grand drop of gamay which may draw some more fans to this lesser-known Beaujolais cru. - Neil Cammies

The alcohol is thoroughly sensible for a Spanish garnacha, as they can bang out alcohol if left to their own devices. The finish is bright and fresh and suited to a tomato-based pasta dish. We went turkey meatballs. - Neil Cammies

If the truth be told this bold, beefy and young Entre-Deux-Mers claret, mostly merlot with a quarter cabernet franc, could do with more time in the cellar. Still, serve it at warm room temperature and with big food such as a beef stew, and it will slip down all too easily. - Jane MacQuitty

Patient wine drinkers will have to wait until this one lands on February 26, but The Wine Society is already taking orders for this uplifting, yet brooding red, made from the aglianico grape.

AA3081 AA3081 Familie Mantler Roter Veltliner, Niederösterreich 2019

Rather surprisingly and despite its name, this is white (not red) wine and seems unrelated to its Austrian homeland's signature gruner veltliner grape. What its vines do provide, however, is attractive, uncomplicated, drink-anytime wine - especially when its tendency to overly high yields is controlled. Enjoy then the light (11.5% abv) spritzy apple and pear flavours on display here, and the accompanying mild lemon acidity and gentle spiciness. - Brian Elliott

A certain stoniness on the nose, with less obvious struck-match character than the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Still very youthful and quite chewy on the finish.
