The best Morrisons wines for the festive season

While festive season looms, time to stock up your favourite styles and grapes at Morrisons. Check out the latest deals for the supermarket chain's 'The Best' range and beyond.

As temperatures drop and the clock changes, the countdown to Christmas begins.

With almost 500 stores across the UK,  Morrisons is a major player in the supermarket sector and its value wine offering never fails to impress. Ahead of the holiday season, Morrisons is currently running a ‘buy three get 25% off‘ campaign among its ‘The Best’ wine range – the supermarket chain’s private label series that presents classic regions and grapes from around the globe at a reasonable price. For entry-level food charmers, there are also affordable options featuring familiar grape varieties at just £6.

The Decanter team has again hand-picked some of its favourites from the Morrisons autumn and winter offerings. The majority of the selection is under £20, and a third of the wines are under £10.

From the fizzy sector, the complex and creamy Champagne Charles Clément Brut NV presents an unmissable deal. The English Sparkling Wine 2010 from ‘The Best’ lineup is an excellent example of the quality potential of aged English wines – stock up while it’s available.

If you are seeking the all-time classics, our recommendations also encompass ‘The Best’ Chablis, Barolo, Rioja Reserva, Chianti Classico and Bordeaux Supérieur.

Venture into wines from the Southern Hemisphere with The Best South African Sauvignon Blanc for a tropical nose combined with a crunchy palate. A new addition to the Morrisons South Africa lineup, Capeography Co’s Cape White Blend, from the Western Cape, boasts a textured, fulfilling style. Opt for the Roodeberg Red, a multi-faceted blend driven by Cabernet and Syrah, for a sweet-spiced but elegant food wine.

The top value buy this season has to be Villa Verde’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2022. At just £6, it offers well-balanced fruits and textural interests that would work nicely with hearty red meat dishes.

To complete your festive feast, nothing rivals a comforting sweet wine. The 2018 vintage of the elegant, citrusy Botrytis Semillon and the intoxicatingly rich Pedro Ximenez from ‘The Best’ range are value choices with reliable quality.

And finally, if you are up for the celebration but don’t want the alcohol, go for the cheerful Alcohol-Free Sparkling Rosé by Kylie Minogue – a surprisingly fresh bubbly blend of wine and green tea.
