A couple of wines from Martinez in Ilkley that are well worth getting hold of, Bremerton Selkirk Shiraz at £11.99 (£10.79 with discounts, see site). I have just had some of the 2001 release that I have cellared for a while, awsome, big rich and dark, with hints of wet leather / smoke, superb with roast beef and proper gravy.

Monte Real Rioja Reserva, this had really good ripe fruit flavour combined with a touch of oak and spice and a good, long complex finish, £12.25 a bottle (£11.03 with discounts). What a lucky boy I am, my wife gave me a bottle of this for our wedding anniversary, and then Ben Rhydding Cricket Club presented me with a bottle for doing their cricket teas this summer, thanks folks.
