Here's our vinous spin on Oktoberfest. No beers in sight (although we have plenty of great ales, lagers, stouts and saisons in stock). Instead we've put together a case of Butler's favourites old and new to see you through the month. Two whites, a rosé and three reds, all yours for £69...
This Southern Italian organic white is one of our bestsellers. If you aren't familiar with Sicily's indigenous Grillo grape, this wine is a great place to start. It's aromatic, floral, unoaked and zesty, laden with ripe, clean citrus fruit. A bright, uplifting autumnal tipple.
A beautifully refreshing white from Galicia's other white grape variety, this wine shows how much more there is to the region than Albariño. Godello is typically fresh and fragrant, all stone fruit, green apple and citrus notes. Bioca adds lipsmacking salinity to the mix. Especially good with goat's cheese, cod or BBQ sardines.
Annabel de Chateau Puybarbe rose (France) - £11.50
The under-the-radar Bordeaux appellation of Cotes de Bourg is the home of this intense but fresh medium-bodied rosé. Deep flavours of wild rose and strawberry fruit are held up on a clean shard of acidity, making it a great food wine. Enjoy with pretty much anything from the sea.
Pete's Pure Pinot Noir (Australia) - £9.95
From one of Australia's most fertile wine regions, this juicy Pinot Noir is made in a 'hands-off' style with grapes from sustainable vineyards. It's designed to refresh and goes brilliantly with food. Chill it down a little to make the most of the red berry fruit flavours.
Tisserands Red blend (France) - £9.99
From just north of Montpelier in the South of France, this Grenache-heavy red blend shows off the area's modern, approachable wine style to perfection. It's elegant and easy drinking but with plenty of interest on the palate, from plum and cherry fruit to an attractive chocolate-cocoa quality. Great with pasta.
Alceno Organic Monastrell (Spain) - £11.50
Jumilla in South East Spain is scorchio, which often means jammy, high-alcohol reds. Not this one. The organic grapes are grown at altitude, meaning cooler temperatures, slower ripening and much fresher red fruit flavours. It's still got plenty of heft, but the lively tannins are the perfect counterpoint.
