Made from hand-harvested Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes grown in the Premier and Grand Cru vineyards, this award-winning rosé Champagne is made exclusively for Tesco by Union Champagne in Avize.

Gratien & Meyer Crémant de Loire Brut 12.5% abv, £12.00

This crisp and elegant sparkling wine is made from hand-harvested grapes picked in vineyards south of Saumur. Made according to the traditional method, in the same way as Champagne, it offers fine, smooth bubbles. Bursting with toasty and brioche-like notes on the palate, it is delicious chilled on its own or with a prawn cocktail.

La Gioiosa et Amorosa Prosecco Rosé DOC 11% abv, £10.00 (vegan)

This Prosecco Rosé has a pomegranate nuance edged with soft pink reflections. The nose is subtle and fresh, offering hints of small red fruits. Notes of rose and pomegranate complete this elegant and intensely aromatic profile. On the palate, it is silky and full, presenting a very pleasant balance between the fruity and floral notes. Delicious with smoked salmon, salads or light and fruity desserts.

Tesco Finest Côtes de Provence Rosé 13% abv, £9.00 (vegan)

IWC & IWSC 2021 Bronze Medal Winner

A crisp, delicate and dry wine, in the signature Côtes de Provence pale pink hue, it works well alongside cranberry and brie tartlets or a fresh strawberry dessert.

Tesco Finest Ribera del Duero 14.5% abv, £12.00

The grapes for this wine come from the most prestigious area within the DO Ribera del Duero, known as the ‘Golden Triangle’. Rich and full-bodied, its concentrated flavours of ripe red fruit are layered with a twist of spice and subtle notes of cedar and vanilla, from its seven months’ ageing in French and American barrels. Serve with beef or mushroom wellington.

Mountain breeze and shade provide perfect vineyard conditions for this Cinsault, a unique and underrated grape variety. Meticulous attention is given in the winemaking resulting in a smooth and elegant wine with aromas of red berries on the nose and a soft, fruity palate with delicate herbal notes. Perfect alongside a lamb roast or aubergine parmigiana.

Planeta L’Amistanza Fiano Grecanico 12.5%, £10.00 (vegan)

Produced from indigenous Fiano and Grecanico grapes grown in the Sicilian hills, this fresh and fruity white evokes Italian holidays and long, lazy lunches. Made by the world renowned, family-run and sustainably minded Planeta winery, it is exclusive to Tesco.
