Matthew's latest wine reviews from Moneyweek magazine
This dramatic, spicy wine is stuffed with the flavours of mountainside fruit.
2017 Les Clos de Paulilles
The sea-shell freshness in this young, dry white wine makes it quite unlike any other.
2014 Chapel Down
This English sparkling wine is a grand wine with an expansive flavour and terrific potential, says Matthew Jukes.
2008 Pazo Señorans
This Albariño is more than a decade old, but is still brimming with meadow-flower and citrus pith flavours and vigorous acidity.
2016 Viñas de Gain
This sensational Spanish red sums up in one bottle everything I love about tempranillo, says Matthew Jukes.
The 2018 Kottabos is not a typical Cape red in that it is leaner, more fragrant and kindlier on the palate, says Matthew Jukes.
What I like so much about this relative newcomer is that the wines from the brand are perfectly ready to drink from the off, says Matthew Jukes.
This delicious Mercurey captures the splendour of the famous 2015 Burgundy vintage, with layers of pinot noir fruit and lustiness.
This series of Niepoort wines left Matthew Jukes reeling with delight.
2017 Barbera d’Alba
This incredible new Italian red shows the lip-smacking nebbiolo grape off to the highest standard.
