Aldi is introducing two brand new English wines to its range as Brits’ preference for home grown vino continues to soar.
Following a huge 160% increase in sales of English Rosé year on year, the supermarket is launching a Specially Selected Pinot Noir Rosé (£10.99, 75cl) and a Specially Selected English White Cuvée (£9.99, 75cl). What’s more, the new additions are available in stores now – just in time for Brits to stock up ahead of English Wine Week (18th – 26th June).
Produced in the vineyards of Devon, Aldi’s Specially Selected English White Cuvée delivers notes of fresh green apple, lime zest and melon for well-balanced finish. Clean, crisp and wonderfully dry, it is perfect for summertime sipping at alfresco gatherings.
Aldi’s pretty in pink Specially Selected Pinot Noir Rosé, also produced in Devon, offers delicate floral notes on the nose and vibrant strawberry and raspberry flavours on the palate. Made with the highly versatile Pinot Noir grape, it pairs perfectly with thyme-roasted chicken, salmon, and salads.
The new additions join Aldi’s award-winning English Wine offering, which also includes an English Sparkling Rosé (£15.99, 75cl) launched in a Britannia themed bottle for recent Jubilee celebrations.
Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi, says: “We’ve taken huge strides with our fantastic English wine suppliers and it is great to see it becoming increasingly popular with our customers. We’re proud to be championing English vineyards more and more within our award-winning wine range – it is the wine creators’ passion and skill that help us to provide shoppers with the best quality products at competitive prices.”
