September 2014 report live!

What a cracker! We explore the independent side of wine with two reports: 'Esoterica', a new umbrella organisation for wines that are off the beaten track, and our 'Independents Day' special round-up of wines you won't find in the supermarkets. We also get fizzy with the wines of Franciacorta and explore the world of oaked Sauvignon Blanc. But it's the time of year when the big guns wheel out their autumn lists, so we also asses the latest wines from Asda, Majestic, Marks & Spencer, Morrisons and Virgin Wines.

Wine of the Month

top wine for September 2014

Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1 2005

Alas the great Aussie vigneron Dr.Bailey Carrodus who made the reputation of Yarra Yering is no longer with us, but his spirit lives on in great wines like this. An elegant Aussie claret-style whose sheer finesse is underscored at every point, in its beguiling fragrance, its opulent yet bright cassis fruit with its hint of sun-dried tomato, its subtle oak spice and its silky-textured elegance. A restrained classic. £59.00 at Caviste
