The Week Wines: A Journey of Discovery


    Each month our wine editor Bruce Palling works with one of our six wine merchants to pull together an exclusive selection of wine for readers of The Week. 

    The selection is available as a mixed red and white case, a mixed red case, a mixed white case, or each wine can be purchased as a full 12-bottle case. The prices are unavailable elsewhere and come with free UK mainland delivery

    This month, Bruce has selected six wines from online wine merchant, Swig, and discovered new grape varieties and domaines in the process. 

    "This month’s wines are more eclectic than usual, which is what I have come to expect when I select from Swig — one of the most interesting online wine  merchants in the UK. Founder Robin Davis is tireless at exploring new regions and grape varieties, and it’s thanks to merchants like him that we can still  make amazing discoveries from countries we think we already know well.

    The La Valse des Mansengs Domaine Horgelus 2017 was the most exciting discovery I have made since I began writing this column — a true revelation! It soars from the glass with an extraordinary vitality and energy that belies its modest origins, and at £10 a bottle it’s a steal. You must try Thelema Sutherland Chardonnay 2016 — unlike many New World chardonnays, this is all about elegance and restraint and is perfect to be consumed any time in the next few years. The prices per bottle are based on ordering a case of twelve. Should you find it hard to pick just one wine, mixed cases are available. 

    You can read my full tasting notes over at TheWeekWines.com, and if you still can't decide which to buy then the mixed case offers excellent value, with two of each bottle for just £150. As always, prices are exclusive to readers of The Week and you’ll get FREE UK delivery."
