Morrisons wine range review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips

Morrisons may be the fourth largest UK supermarket with its 497 stores but it has failed to capture the memorable ad jingle stakes. Tesco's 'Every little helps' and 'Mums go to Iceland' or the pat on the back pocket for Asda price are annoying ear worms, but 'Morrisons Makes It' reads more like something from a beleaguered British car industry. But what of their wine range - are they stuck in the 70s or more twenty-first century?

Morrisons wine buying team are definitely trying to capture modern twenty-first century wine consumers with a range of recent exclusives and modern wine styles. Kylie Minogue's new addition to the singer-actress' wine range is exclusive to Morrisons - the Cotes de Provence rose 2020 at £15 is stylish and tasty and worth seeking out, while the new Rigal Vin Orange (£10) is so on trend that its light orange tinge made by steeping the white Gros Manseng grape skins in their fermenting juice may confuse many into thinking this is an orange liqueur. It isn't.

But how will customers know? You could read the online customer reviews on the Morrisons grocery website, or from many online wine review websites. But as wineuncorked.co.uk actively seeks out everyday supermarket wines, then our popular free online wine review service is the place to go.

Morrisons top 95 wines are labelled with their The Best logo and are priced in the slightly above average price range at £6 to £9 a bottle. Here you'll find classic wine regions and styles ranging from The Best Burgundy and The Best Gran Reserva Rioja to single variety wines such as The Best South African Shiraz and The Best West Australian Chardonnay - all are generally reliable with a few reaching the 5* out of 5*  wineuncorked.co.uk rating scale.

But which are worth looking out for? Try these from The Best range.
