The best Asda wines to buy this winter

A selection of Asda wines to buy, recommended by Decanter.

This winter, Asda has again placed a focus on value for money but also seasonally appropriate wines. You’ll find rich whites and warming reds on the shelves, as well as a trio of new grower Champagnes – Veuve Olivier ‘Secret de Cave’ NV is included in the winter recommendations, below.

In addition, two new 2014 vintage Champagnes (below) impressed, along with the always-reliable Bollinger.

From Asda’s range of still wines, I was most impressed by the Extra Special Languedoc Blanc (vibrant, zesty stone fruits) and Perrin et Fils’ Les Cardinaux Rouge (peppery red and black fruits) from the Rhône.

There’s some serious value to be had in Asda’s ‘Extra Special’ own-label range, but if you can push the budget a little higher it’s definitely worth trading up in most cases.
