Three to follow

One for the weekend
BVS Shiraz Peter Lehmann, Barossa Valley (£9.99 on offer, Majestic).

Everything a Shiraz is supposed to be when there’s snow on the ground

One to impress the neighbours
Crozes Hermitage Les Trois Chênes, 2010, Emmanuel Darnaud (£19.95, Berry Bros).

This is a regular in the Bennett cellar and, when deployed, never fails to excite the neighbours

One to tuck away
Mollydooker Carnival of Love, 2010 (£370 case of six, winedirect.co.uk).

Once tried, never forgotten. Mollydooker means lefthanded punch in Australia and this one blows you away. A star that will last for decades.
