The top 10 wines in the UK press

20th May, 2013 by Andy Young

Victoria Moore picks out a wine that she says is “really superb stuff” while Jane MacQuitty recommends a “mouthwateringly racy, minerally, top-drawer Aussie”.

Newspaper stackWriting in The Times MacQuitty’s recommendation comes from a vineyard that is now run by the grandsons of Clare founding father Jim Barry. She wrote: “This tiny five-acre vineyard’s 30-year-old riesling vines thrive in its peculiarly Australian limestone, red clay and slate-flecked soil.”

She added that the wine is a great match “with summer’s exotically spiced white meat or fish dishes.”

Meanwhile in the Daily Telegraph, Victoria Moore picks out what she feels are the best value wines available this week.

She wrote: “This Swartland iteration of a Rhône blend is Mullineux’s best-seller in South Africa,” adding that it is “really superb stuff”.
