This week’s top tips and current promotions

A lovely Languedoc Viognier and a great value Cabernet Sauvignon.

Read on to find details of an excellent – but modestly priced – Viognier and a great value Cabernet Sauvignon currently on offer at Morrisons.

2019 Abbotts & Delaunay Viognier (from £7.99 in Majestic)

I’ve stretched the usual price range a bit here but Abbotts and Delaunay make some lovely Languedoc wine, often – like this one – with a modest price tag given the quality.

Enjoy the aromatic orange, mango and apricot flavours supported by lemon-centred acidity and a savoury texture.

Note, some Majestic outlets may still be on the 2018 vintage at the moment.

2019 Fairtrade Cabernet Sauvignon (£5.50 – instead of £7.25 until 4 October at Morrisons):

This aromatic and well-priced South African wine centres around bright raspberry and blackcurrant fruit but is mercifully light on tannin.

It has good acidity but the impressive mint, clove and chocolate depth adds a welcome texture and complexity.

Current promotions

At Sainsbury’s

The Sainsbury’s promotion we featured a week or so back comes to an end tomorrow but a new set of offers start on Wednesday. Tune in next week for my highlights from this promotion plus news of fresh offers at M&S.

And finally….

We were pleased to hear this week that we have made it on to York-based Corking Wines’ list of Top 101 Wine Writers of 2020.

Corking Wine founders, David Beswick and Yvonne Holmes, shared these kind words about MidWeek Wines:

“Brian’s bitesize roundups of the best bottles on the market are giving thousands of wine lovers a highly valuable insight into the latest trends and unmissable offers.”

Cheers guys! That’s exactly what we try to do so it’s great to know we’re hitting the spot.

Join us again on Thursday for a brief review of South African wine including fare from one especially impressive producer.
