AWARD WINNING, GREAT VALUE SUMMER WINES
SOME STARS OF THE INTERNATIONAL WINE & SPIRIT COMPETITION
Summer has arrived, and no picnic or BBQ is complete without a chilled glass of wine or bubbles. Rumours about the UK’s dwindling prosecco supply may be rife, but don’t panic buy at your local supermarket just yet.
This year’s International Wine and Spirit Competition’s (IWSC) Northern Hemisphere results have thrown up a whole bevy of award winning but wonderfully affordable supermarket wines and here’s the pick of the bunch.
This Arestel Cava Brut NV is an absolute steal and can be picked up for just £4.99 from Lidl. Its clean and tasty citrus notes make it the perfect tipple for balmy evenings in the garden.
