Top 10 wines in the UK press

22nd July, 2013 by Andy Young

Matthew Jukes recommends a wine that goes “with virtually every summer dish you can think of” while Fiona Beckett picks out “a wine of real poise and balance”.

Top 10 wines in the UK pressWriting in The Guardian, Beckett picks out wines for wine drinkers who are not fans of Sauvignon Blanc. She wrote: “Buy a bottle of Côtes de Gascogne, unoaked white Rioja, Godello, Gacchus or any cheap house white on a restaurant list and chances are it will be a Sauvignon drinkalike. Even if you like Sauvignon, it gets a bit boringly predictable.”

Beckett then adds several wines “where you should look for alternatives.”

As well as the flexible, summer dish wine that Jukes recommended to his readers in the Daily Mail, he also picked out a “budget, red Bordeaux” which is “a real star.”
