Shopper’s guide: DWWA-winning wines from Morrisons

Morrisons is one of Britain’s supermarket big-hitters, with almost 500 stores across the country. The retailer turned in a stellar performance at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards, claiming a host of Gold, Silver and Bronze awards, as well as a Value Best in Show.

A mere 50 wines in this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards, from the 18,244 wines tasted, were awarded the top accolade of Best in Show. Of those, just nine were awarded Value Best in Show, an award for top-performing wines that retail for less than £15 a bottle. These wines represent outstanding quality and price.

Morrisons The Best Gran Montaña Reserve Malbec 2020 from Argentina’s Uco Valley is therefore well worth seeking out. Judges awarded this deep, dense, sinewy but structured Argentinian wine 97 points – and at £8 a bottle, this wine is hard to beat on price and quality.

Another Morrisons The Best wine was awarded a Value Gold – indicating that this premium range does live up to its name. Morrisons The Best Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2020 was awarded 95 points with the judges noting its citrus and saline notes. It, too, costs £8, making it excellent value for money.

From among Morrisons’ 18 Silver medals, it’s difficult to earmark just a few to recommend, although a number of The Best wines demonstrate this range’s depth.

Judges awarded Morrisons The Best Botrytis Semillon 2018 from Australia 92 points for its apricot and honey notes, while Morrisons The Best Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2021 (90 points) showed excellent typicity with its plum and dark cherry fruit.

In the fortified category, Morrisons The Best Pedro Ximénez NV sherry (90 points) impressed judges with its deep, caramel-rich fruit. Morrisons The Best Late Bottled Vintage 2016 Port showed all the red-fruit and spice character you’d expect from an LBV, for which judges awarded it 90 points.

On quality, range and price, Morrisons has much to offer, both in-store and online. Find the full range of Morrisons winners at this year’s DWWA below.

Best in Show

Morrisons, The Best Gran Montaña Reserve Malbec, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina 2020
Value Best in Show, 97 points
This Value Best In Show from Uco underscores the colossal potential on offer here. This wine is a dense, opaque purple-black-red in colour with huge saturation on the sides of the glass after a swirl. It’s opulently fruity too, with billowing damson and sloe pointed up by notes of tea leaf and rose. You might, from the aromas, be expecting a fruit bomb — but this is purer, finer and fresher than that, with ample sinew, sap and ripely leafy inner freshness. Can anywhere in the world compete with red-wine value of this order at present? Alc 14%
