Looking for some wine and not sure what to buy? Let the UK’s wine experts give you a helping hand. Every week in the national newspapers and magazines, some of the UK’s best known wine buffs recommend wines for their readers. Below is a selection of wines from Tesco recommended over the weekend:
Fiona Beckett, The Guardian, Saturday 28th July 2012
Finest* Swartland Chenin Blanc 2011"From the talented Adi Badenhorst - it's a steal - just off-dry, but irresistibly lush and peachy. Try it with a chicken tikka wrap."
Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail, Saturday 28th July 2012
Finest Argentina Malbec
"Inky coloured, massively intense and amazingly structured, this is one of the most impactful and impressive reds of the season. With dark chocolate and plum flavours and a heroic finish, this is a massive treat for lovers of heavyweight reds."
Olly Smith, Mail on Sunday, Sunday 30th July 2012
Jacob's Creek Steingarten Riesling 2011
"Want to spread your wings a bit? If so, Pinot Blanc from Alsace, Austrian Gruner Veltliner, Spanish Albariño and bone dry Aussie Riesling are worth seeking out. For a fab treat, try Jacob's Creek Steingarten Riesling 2011."
Andrew Neather, Evening Standard, Thursday 26th July 2012
Simply Garnacha Rosé 2011
“This 100 per cent Garnacha Rosé from a notably good-value producer has plenty of dry, red berry fruit for the money - which, let's face it, is less than you could pay for some waters."
