With almost 500 stores across the UK, Morrisons is a major player in the supermarket sector and its value wine offering never fails to impress. While its ‘Best’ collection allows wine lovers to explore classic expressions at a reasonable budget, its ‘Value’ collection has increasingly become a reliable source for easy-to-enjoy food charmers at under £6.
From the supermarket chain’s latest autumn/winter offerings, the Decanter team has made a selection tailored for your festive gatherings at home this winter. The majority of the selection is under £20, with a few value-buys at around £5.
For charming yet affordable sparklers, The Best Crémant De Limoux offers crunchy green fruits and plenty of yeasty depth. Menestrello’s soft-textured Prosecco is easily a crowd-pleaser with decent freshness. Surprise your guests with Morrison’s Best English Sparkling Wine 2010 as a quality alternative to Champagne.
Go for the Chilean Estate Cabernet Sauvignon from Errazuriz to pair with hearty lamb and beef dishes on just salt-and-pepper. Paul Mas’s Reserve Pinot Noir of Languedoc-Roussillon and Viñalba’s Patagonia Malbec won’t disappoint as companions to your Christmas turkey or dishes with a fruity seasoning.
From the ‘Value’ range, Villa Verde’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a solid choice that merits both freshness and structure, sold at just £5.19.
Morrisons’ Best Pedro Ximenez may well be the final piece you need to complete the feast. The luscious liquid raisin and hazelnut flavours are all packed in a half bottle for just £5.5. Opt for the Special Reserve Port for a robust shot of alcohol and tannin – exactly what we need to warm up this winter.
The list also includes wines from our previous recommendations that are still available.
