Chateau Barouillet
Bergecrac Rouge 2022

Ideal all-rounder red, leaning to the sort of blend you'd expect from a region neighbouring Bordeaux. The grapes each show off a bit of their typical character in good balance; savoury Malbec, herbaceous Cab Franc, red-fruited Merlot and plummy, spicy Cab Sauv. Find out more.

Domaine Bobinet
Hanami 2022

Bobinet do wonderful things with Cabernet Franc and were one of the first producers to draw us to Saumur. Hanami is one of their brighter, crunchier cuvées, made in a fruit-forward style, harnessing the herbal fragrance and plush cherry fruit the grape can abundantly provide. Find out more.

Val de Combrès
L'Ivresse 2021

Another trademark juice-bomb red, this time using the unlikely blend of Cabernet Franc and Syrah, the former grape a real anomaly in this part of France. There is a lightness of touch on display that harnesses every last drop of vibrant fruit character; deep, lip-smacking blackcurrant fruit with a green, herbal fragrance, plush sheen and plenty of intrigue.

Monteforche
Lo Sfuso di Collina 2022

A long-time, nice-price staple here at Wayward, this is a real, honest and unfussy country wine that we'd happily drink every day. 'Sfuso' relates to rustic wine that is often sold from a tap in local trattorie. That gives you an idea of what to expect here - simple and quenching, of the variety one rarely sees exported.

Noëlla Morantin
Momu 2020

Aromatically this is a textbook example of the grape; plush, brightly-toned notes of red berries, charred capsicum and ground coffee are vibrant and upfront. On the palate the wine is glossy, with deep, sumptuous fruit and gentle bitters leading into detailed granular tannins and a stony, mineral backbone. Find out more.
