Gifts of wine suitable for saying –

Thanks for looking after my cat

Olivier Coste Chardonnay 2017 - £11.95 – an unoaked example challenges preconceptions about over rich chardonnay. This opens hearts and minds.

Big thanks for being a friend

Savage White Blend 2017 - £27.95 – one of the best white wines of South Africa. Winemaker Duncan Savage has created a Bordeaux style blend with the freshness of a white Burgundy.

Super thanks for introducing me to my future spouse

Kutch Chardonnay 2016 - £45.00 – hip as hell chardonnay from the US West Coast. This is impressive as well as delicious. The gateway to wine hipster kudos.

Thanks for recommending wine bars in Berlin

Soli pinot noir 2016 - £12.50 – a surprisingly fabulous Bulgarian pinot noir. This delivers way above its price level – generous in every respect.

Big thanks for listening to me bang on

Boekenhoutskloof Chocolate Block 2016 - £22.00 – chocolatey decadence but not over the top. As generous and full of joy as Santa’s sack.

Super thanks for helping me get my dream job

Francois Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny 1er cru 2014 - £85.00 – da bomb. Pure flavour without any sense of heaviness that leaves you light and enlightened.
