    We’ve been diligently checking out the new range of wines for summer 2021 from Tesco Finest, and they definitely don’t disappoint. From sparkling to red, white and rosé, there’s something summery here for every palate, preference and occasion. Get ready to raise a glass to the rest of the summer…

    Tesco Finest Prosecco DOC (€12)

    In partnership with Cantine Maschio, the Tesco Finest Prosecco DOC grapes are sourced from a single area, overlapping the finest vineyards in Prosecco, Italy. The result is an elegant wine with a lingering finish, full of citrus and pear flavours with peach blossom aromas. This fresh and fruity fizz is lovely by itself as an aperitif, or served with a fish or goat’s cheese starter.

    Tesco Finest Picpoul De Pinet (€12)

    This light, crisp wine is grown around the Bassin de Thau in Laguedoc region of France — an ideal location as locals say Picpoul vines need to have “their heads in the wind and their feet in the sea”. With citrus and lime flavours, this refreshing white is fantastic with seafood, and is best enjoyed within one year of purchase (should it last that long!). Suitable for vegans.

    Tesco Finest Saint-Chinian (€12)

    This full-bodied red is ripe with black fruit and savoury spice flavours including “garrigue,” the fragrant bush plants of Southern France. Smokey notes meet richness and complexity to make this a great match for roasted red meats and rosemary potatoes, and an ideal option for red wine drinkers to enjoy at a barbecue. Suitable for vegetarians.

    The Tesco Finest Picpoul De Pinet, Tesco Finest Sain-Chianian and Tesco Finest Prosecco Doc have been awarded Gold at the International Wine Challenge (IWC) 2021 Awards. The IWC is accepted as the world’s most rigorous, impartial and influential wine competition, assessing every wine “blind”and judging each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage.

    The Palm by Whispering Angel (€18.99)

    Exclusively available in selected Tesco stores, this authentic rosé from Provence operates as playful, trendy, energetic ‘little sister’ to Whispering Angel. Made from Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan, The Palm shows great aromatic freshness on the nose followed by more subtle, fruity notes on the palate.

    The freshness is coupled with exceptional length and roundness and a crisp finish — just perfect for a long, lazy afternoon in the sun. (We can testify to that!)
