Best Wines to buy for Wine Relief

Some of the Best Wines to buy for Wine Relief are as follows:
1. Janeil Gros Manseng/Sauvignon Blanc C?tes De Gascogne 2011
A light, rapid citrusy white of the kind you’d drink in the shower, according to the Oddbins website. Don’t be distracted by the Gros Manseng bit ? basically this tastes like sauvignon.
Drink with:
Seafood and salads.

A blend of syrah, carignan and grenache, this is one of those warming, hearty southern French reds that makes you feel all is well with the world.
Drink with:
Hearty bistro dishes such as sausages and lentils or slow-braised shoulder of lamb.

3. BVC Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Cabernet from South Australia tastes like that from nowhere else ? superbly ripe and velvety-smooth. It’s very hard to see why anyone wouldn’t fall for this, except possibly for the rather naff label. It’s worth buying a bit extra to age too.
Drink with:
Anything seriously meaty.

4. ARC DU Rh?ne C?te DU Rh?ne Villages 2011 (13.5%)
An easy-drinking, crowd-pleasing, food-loving quaffer that will keep the senior members of the family happy. Worth loading up at this price.
Drink with:
Sunday roast or a cheeseboard.

5. Domaine Wachau Terraces Gruner Veltliner 2011
It may be difficult to pronounce but this crisp dry spicy Austrian white is a great purchase if you’re terminally bored by sauvignon blanc.
Drink with:
Vietnamese and other subtly spiced Asian seafood dishes.

6. The Gooseberry Bush 2012, BON Courage, Robertson
If you’re not bored with sauvignon blanc, and particularly if you like the upfront Kiwi style, this is the bottle for you. Although it comes from South Africa, not New Zealand. And has a slug of colombard in it as well.
Drink with:
Avocado and prawn salad or fishy barbecue.

7. West Cape Howe SHIRAZ 2009 Western Australia
We drink Aussie wines way too young and this beautifully mellow supple shiraz from Western Australia proves this point. Really quite gorgeous.
Drink with:
Steak, spicy beef dishes, venison or kangaroo.

8. Paul Cluver Ferricrete Riesling 2012
This vivid lime and passion-fruit-streaked off-dry riesling from South Africa’s Elgin region is the standout bottle. If you haven’t yet got into riesling, now is your chance. Virtuously low in alcohol too.
Drink with:
Chinese or other Asian seafood dishes.

9. Fincas Del Sur Malbec 2011
Malbec looks like replacing Rioja as everyone’s favourite red and this luxuriously lush example from Argentina’s Familia Zuccardi shows why. The “majestically ripe tannins” as they put it, may be a little soft for some ? you can almost sink into them but it should make any meat-lover very happy.
Drink with:
Steak is the obvious one or a pulled pork sandwich.

10. Back Door Cape Monster Red 2007
Top prize for the most inventive approach to Wine Relief goes to Naked Wines, which has come up with a Comic Relief wine game based on a six-bottle case of South African wines. At ?71.44 it’s not cheap but the wines are interesting and they’re giving 15% of the purchase price to Wine Relief instead of the average 10%. This cracking chateauneuf-style blend of grenache and syrah is, the outstanding buy. Officially from an undisclosed winery but the cork says Quoin Rock.
Drink with:
Fellow carnivores.
