  • Aldi has achieved Best Buy and Great Value accolades in the Which? English Wine Taste Test
  • The Winemaster’s Lot English Sparkling, which scored higher than wines that cost as much as 90% more, was praised for its impressive fruity and savoury finish
  • While Aldi’s £9.99 Specially Selected English Bacchus beat premium wines that cost 70% more

Aldi is the go-to destination for outstanding wines at low prices, as its Winemaster’s Lot English Sparkling (£19.99, 75cl) and Specially Selected English Bacchus (£9.99, 75cl) have been awarded Best Buy and Great Value accolades in the Which? English Wine Taste Test – beating competitor wines that are up to £18 more.  

Aldi’s sparkling was one of three wines to be awarded a Best Buy following a rigorous blind taste test. The bubbly impressed experts at the consumer champion, who scored it a remarkable 80/100. 

Available in stores now, the sparkler was highly praised for its quality and value.  Judges noted its ‘’light and lemony” characteristic, with notes of “ripe apple and honeysuckle”, and commented how its “impressive, slightly savoury finish” was likened to bread-and-butter pudding[1].

A number of pricier English Sparkling wines are featured further down the list, including Chapel Down, Hattingley and Nyetimber – that come in at a whopping £18 (90%) more.

In the still wine round up, Aldi’s Specially Selected English Bacchus (£9.99, 75cl) scooped up an impressive Best Buy & Great Value award with a score of 77/100.

Beating premium retailers and brands such as Waitrose, M&S and Simpsons, with entries that cost over £16 (70%) more, the wine was praised for its outstanding price point at just £9.99 a bottle. Judges commented it was “bursting with fresh, floral and fruity flavours”, detailing notes of “elderflower, pear drop and rose petal.”

Specially Selected English Bacchus

Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK says: “Now more than ever, we want to show that low prices don’t mean compromising on quality or taste. Which? recognising our English White and Sparkling as Best Buys with great value is testament to that.”

Aldi’s Winemaster’s Lot English Sparkling is available in stores now, while the Specially Selected English Bacchus will be available in stores from April.
