Shopper’s guide: DWWA-winning wines from Tesco

Tesco is the UK’s largest supermarket chain and its range of wines is suitably broad and varied. Below discover just a few picks of the leading retailer’s top performers to try from this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards.

Tesco‘s wine range includes seven Silver medal winners from this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards – among them the characterful Taylor’s LBV 2017. Judges awarded this Port 92 points, noting its dense, chocolatey depths and smooth, ripe tannins.

From New Zealand, two wines – both from the same Marlborough producer – were awarded Silver: Te P? Signature Series Sauvignon Blanc 2021 (92 points) and Te P? Signature Series Pinot Noir 2019 (90 points). With its nose of grapefruit and mango, the Sauv Blanc displays ripeness along with its typical varietal character. The Pinot Noir is another excellent example of its type from this region, with wild berries and structured tannins.

Two very different wines from Italy were also awarded Silver. Own-brand Tesco Finest Primitivo 2021 from Abruzzo earned 90 points, and at just £7 it offers a generous, easy-going palate of jammy, plummy fruit. More restrained in style, Ascheri Barolo 2018 (91 points) displays typical floral notes and characteristic earthiness of the Nebbiolo variety.

Keenly priced at £7.50, Vidigal Wines Porta 6 2020 from Lisboa (92 points), a blend of Portuguese grape varieties Arinto and Viosinho, along with Chardonnay, has floral aromas and mouth-watering citrus notes on the palate.

Rounding out Tesco’s Silver medal range is Wynns The Siding 2019 (90 points), a deeply flavoured, varietal Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra. Concentrated, rich and warm, this is an unmissable choice for Coonawarra Cab fans.

There are more than 2,000 Tesco stores across the UK and an online shop, so Tesco’s wines are easy to track down. Find the full list of DWWA medal winners to find at your local below.
