Top 10 wines in the UK press

Taste the Difference Alsace Gewürztraminer, France 2013

Taste the Difference GewurztraminerDavid Williams recommended a trio of wines from Alsace writing in The Guardian this week – a region which he said produces “floral and flavoursome” wines known to divide opinion.

Of this Sainsbury’s own wine, he said: “With more flavour than the slim, crisp white wines of summer, the wines of Alsace, with their tastes and scents of ripe orchard fruit and flowers, seem to fit just right with this time of year. A bridge between the Germanic and French wine cultures, they are entirely their own (if not, in the case of the uninhibited aromatic excess of Gewürztraminer, everyone’s) thing. And if there’s a more apt match for Szechuan or Thai spice than the variety’s lychee, rosewater and ginger in Sainsbury’s, or better yet, Zind Humbrecht’s explosive 2012 (£14.99, Majestic), I’ve yet to find it.”

Price: £8, Sainsbury’s
