Great Value - Still High Quality
With price rises everywhere, we at Turton Wines have worked hard to ensure we can still provide excellent quality wines, whilst keeping prices low. Fancy a midweek drink, a gift for a someone special, or a wine to share amongst friends without compromising quality? Here, we highlight the full range of wines we can offer, many under £10!
For a touch of northern Spain, Delincuente offer an excellent white Macabeo and red Garnacha, made by the Aragon region's leading co-operative of winemakers who pool resources to keep prices low. Their Macabeo is a wonderfully aromatic dry wine showing white peach and spring flowers on the creamy and fresh palate. Their youthful Garnacha is vibrant and fruit forward, with lots of raspberry, strawberry and dried flowers alongside ripe tannins.
Italy brings us Ke Bonta, a range from one of Piemonte's leading producers, Araldica, a co-operative proud to have 50 years of experience working with over 230 farmers. Their Pinot Grigio is as light and refreshing as any Pinot worth its salt should be, with a textured feel and extra ripeness from lees ageing. Their Pinot Grigio Rose is just as refreshing, with lots of fresh strawberry, raspberry and apricot.
We are big fans of Eastern European winemaking; the highest expertise but often without the hefty price tag of Western Europe. Romania's Cramele Recas created their Paparuda Estate range to showcase the finest native grapes at low prices. Their Feteasca Regala is a great introduction to this white grape, one that exudes style and tropical fruitiness. Easy-drinking, clean and zesty with layers of apple, pear, grapefruit, pineapple and gala melon. The Feteasca Neagra ('Black Maiden') grape is known for its deep, luscious wines. Paparuda's velvety example brings violets, black cherry, wild red berries and tobacco touches for a rounded wine.
Heading to France, the Les Saisons range gathers grapes from across regions to keep costs down.
Their Rouge blends Grenache and Syrah grapes from selected vineyards of Vaucluse, southern Rhone for a warming, leafy,
autumnal wine showing sweet dried currants and soft fruit. Their Rose is a refreshing blend of Tannat, Merlot and Cabernet Franc bringing lots of strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant.
Back to Spain, Castillo del Moro bring us to the south in Castilla La Mancha, a region known for producing lots of great value wines. Their white Airen-Sauvignon is a modern, fresh wine with grassy aromas, grapefruit, bright citrus, vibrant apple and zesty length. Their Tempranillo-Syrah red is highly quaffable with lots of cherry and red fruit characters, soft tannins, subtle spice and good length. Their Tempranillo Rose is a fruity feast, bursting with strawberry, tangy cherry and hints of cranberry.
If nothing takes your fancy so far, we have lots more great picks for under £12. The ever-popular Merry Mole range provides many options; Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay for white lovers, Malbec or Merlot for reds, and a fresh Pinot Grigio Blush matching the quality of Italy. Made by the family estate of Asconi Winery in Anenii Noi, Moldova, who have embraced technological innovation, the range is renowned for its consistent quality and versatility.
The Franschhoek Cellar range has just as variety; Chardonnay, Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc for whites, Pinotage, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon for reds, and even a Pinotage Rose. Nestled in the Franschhoek Valley wine route of South Africa, the open estate started this range to create wines that perfectly complement their cuisine and found it to be hit across the world.
