Fourth-generation Australian winemaker and one of the world’s most awarded wineries, McGuigan Wines has launched a new Family Release range exclusively into Waitrose.
The Family Release range, which features Chardonnay and Shiraz varietals, has been specially developed for Waitrose and showcases McGuigan’s superb quality with unrivalled value.
With South Australia globally renowned for the quality of its grapes, a careful selection of ideally sited vineyards has produced these two wines. The McGuigan Family Release Chardonnay has an ABV of 13% and features ripe tropical fruit and peach flavours and very subtle oak notes and the McGuigan Family Release Shiraz has an ABV of 13.5%, delivering a smooth, full-bodied red with rich plum and blackcurrant flavours and a warm spicy aftertaste.
Neil McGuigan, chief winemaker, says: “The Family Release range was created in conjunction with the Waitrose team to celebrate more than a century of winemaking under the McGuigan name, which is truly a fantastic achievement for our brand. We’re excited to bring these delicious wines to the UK market through Waitrose and look forward to seeing the different occasions wine lovers choose to enjoy them at.”
The McGuigan Family Reserve range is available now in Waitrose at £8.99 per bottle.
