The top 10 wines in the UK pressWriting in the Mail on Sunday, Olly Smith focused on wines from emerging markets, he said: “We’re going to see a lot more of Croatian wines with their pure clean styles.

“Turkey too has a huge number of local grape varieties – Narince is a white grape I adore, creating wines as fresh as a mandarin with a twist of sexy apricot.”

In the Sunday Telegraph, Susy Atkins decided to work on matching wines with chilli dishes, she wrote: “Overall, whites and pinks worked better than reds, though Chile’s savoury Syrah proved a fine partner for a beef, chocolate and chipotle stew.

“But the real star, effortlessly partnering cheeses and hot chutneys, then matching a spiced-chocolate ganache, was an Alsace medium-sweet Gewürztraminer.”

Here’s a look through the top 10 wines from the UK press.
