Top 10 wines in the UK press

25th February, 2013 by Andy Young

Matthew Jukes recommends “a spectacular wine from one of the best vintages in memory” while other writers pick out wines for Fairtrade fortnight.

UK Press wine recommendationsJukes is clearly a fan of the South Australian Shiraz that he has recommended this week, as he goes on to describe it as a “truly epic red wine”.

Fiona Beckett in The Guardian, Terry Kirby in The Independent and Jane MacQuitty in The Times all pick out Fairtrade wines for Fairtrade fortnight, which runs from Monday 25 February.

Beckett features several Fairtrade wines in her feature, writing: “From a consumer’s point of view, the quality of Fairtrade wines is also improving. It’s good to see the likes of Bruno Raats, one of South Africa’s best producers of Chenin Blanc, get involved with a Fairtrade project.”

Kirby also acknowledges the improving nature of Fairtrade wines, he wrote: “Fairtrade Fortnight begins tomorrow, so it is a good time to explore some of the increasingly improving wines from approved New World producers.”

Read through the following pages to see which wines these and other UK press writers have recommended over the last week.
