I’m a little partial to a glass of wine – but as for knowing which wine to buy I’m not very brave. I stick to what i’ve had before, friends’ recommendations plus the rather marvellous blog Knackered Mothers’ Wine Club for a bit of inspiration.
I do know how I like wine to taste though, so I was really pleased to hear that Australian brand McGuigan Wines are re-launching their classic range here in the UK with new labels designed to make shopping for vino a bit simpler.
For all seven types of wine in the Classic range there are three key words on the label that describe the style, texture and fruit notes within the bottle so you can very quickly figure out at a glance, if it’s the wine for you or not.
You can also check out these fun tasting notes…
McGuigan Classic Wines are available at selected retailers including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Majestic and Co-Op with prices starting from £6.99 (RRP)
However – if you fancy winning a mixed case of the Classic range then you’re in the right place coz I’m sneaking another giveaway in before Christmas 🙂
WIN WIN WIN!
