Graffigna Centenario Malbec

Grill a steak, roast an aubergine, barbecue some lamb… and then relax with this wine’s lush plum fruit, soft vanilla and bright spice. A smooth red to luxuriate in and explore its complex aromas.

Follador Torre de Credazzo

More than just floral, frothy fun, this is single-vineyard Prosecco. That means fresh apple and pear flavours, and aromas of rose and almond. A gorgeous aperitif but also lovely with lighter starters or fish.

Barolo Neirano DOCG

Rich, complex and full-bodied, this is one of the classics, in classic style. Fresh raspberries meld with currants, while the scent of roses fills your glass. Big, bold, yet beautifully smooth, this is one for game and meats.

La Luciana Gavi

Anyone who enjoys Pinot Grigio will love the fuller, rounded and complex style of this gorgeous Gavi. There’s crisp apple and smooth spiciness. Lovely with creamy pasta, or grilled fish.

Bourgogne Chardonnay, Nuiton-Beaunoy

White flowers and white peach flavours make a wonderful match with white meats and fish. This is floral and fresh, with a bright persistence that lingers on your palate. A true classic from a family-run producer.

Sancerre Les Sentiers

Ten generations of family expertise a packed into this delicious, fruity Sancerre. It has all the tang and vibrancy of Sancerre, with a lime and yellow plum fruit. Goat’s Cheese, fish and even lightly spiced chicken dishes are great matches.

Santa Rita Secret Reserve Carmenere

“What Merlot lovers drank next” would be the title for a film about Carmenere. More redcurrant, spice and lift give this wine real character. It’s from one of Chile’s most historic producers and a brilliant discovery on The Wine Show

Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir

In Louis Jadot cellars is a barrel of The Wine Show’s wine. This is their classic though, a raspberry and cherry-scented Pinot Noir. Soft, supple and fresh, perfectly ever-so-lightly chilled (even as a red) and incredibly versatile.

CUNE Rioja Reserva

There’s a winter ramble of flavours here. Leather, bramble, spice, coffee and caramel. The ultimate partner to lamb, it’s also perfectly matched with a night in front of a classic movie or box set. From one of Rioja’s most celebrated family producers.

Villa Maria Bin Sauvignon Blanc

There are lots of Sauvignon Blancs, but few count as classics. This is a go-to wine for Kiwi Sauvignon lovers like us. Gooseberries, lime and tropical fruit, it’s a juicy, fruity wine for drinks with friends and a perfect partner for Pacific Rim spiced dishes.

Laurent Perrier La Cuvee Brut Champagne

The mark of great Champagne is the ‘mouth-filling perfume’ that lingers on your palate. You’ll find it here, with a sleek, elegant freshness followed by a long and floral complexity. A perfect wine for lovers of lift, grace and harmony.

Laurent Perrier Cuvee Rose Champagne

The wine that caused a revolution. Not only because of the sweep of berries, cherry and currants. Or the freshness and precision that marks the palate. But also the elegant, historic presentation and vibrant salmon-pink colour. It’s lovely with pink food. Think salmon and prawn.
