What are the best Aldi wines to buy?

Decanter's tastings team pick out their favourite Aldi wines...

Discount retailer Aldi recently relaunched its range of online-only Classic Icon wines and introduced a selection of premium lines, as well as several more unusual additions.

The Veuve Monsigny Champagne is among those favourites that remain in the initial 35-strong Classic Icon range that launched in September 2019, with 20 newcomers added since.

The seasonal range – including Aldi’s Specially Selected own-label wines – provides great options for everyday drinking, with many bottles below £5. The core lines (from £3.69) are more of a mixed bag, but nevertheless offer several solid options.

While the majority of the wines can be found both on the supermarket’s website and in-store, some are online exclusives and only available while stocks last.

See our selection of the best Aldi wines from the 2020 autumn/winter press tasting below, featuring a super-value Argentinian Shiraz that won Silver at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards. Look out also for the new Filos Estate Assyrtiko, released in March 2021, fabulous value at £6.99.
