Is there a sound that screams summer more than the pop of a cork and a gurgle of a cool bottle of wine being poured? In time for the great British summer we have launched five new wines to suit every taste; two Spanish wines that will leave you dreaming of your holidays, a sparkling rose perfect for every celebration and an organic tempranillo and sauvignon blanc which are not only extremely tasty but ecologically friendly as well.

SPAR Spanish Wines

Enjoy the flavours of Spain with our new reasonably priced wines, at just £4.89 these wines are perfect to enjoy with your weekly dinners in your home, or even to pick up on route to a socially distanced get-together with friends and family. The smooth Spanish red is packed with ripe fruit flavours and is great with pasta, our Spanish chicken & potatoes recipe or roasted Mediterranean vegetables, while the fresh and lively white wine is a tasty choice with Spanish tortilla, fresh fish or a green salad.

Orbis Organic Wine

Organic wine is trending right now, and it’s not just because of the rumours that it helps with hangovers… Our new Orbis range is exclusive to SPAR and are produced in Europe’s leading region for organic vineyards, Castilla La Mancha. Our organic wine production is not just about removing pesticides and fertilisers but also maintaining environmental stability. So, if you want to enjoy a lovely bottle of wine, safe in the knowledge that it is ecologically friendly, this is the wine for you.

Philippa Carr, Master of Wine at SPAR described the Orbis range, The Tempranillo Shiraz blend is a deep cherry-red in colour with aromas of strawberries and fruits of the forest, making it smooth and well-balanced. Enjoy on its own or with hearty food like meats, cheese or mushroom dishes. The white wine is a Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc blend and is pale lemon in colour, with aromas of ripe peaches and tropical fruit flavours, making it a crisp and well-balanced white wine. It’s a great match with fresher, lighter cuisine such as grilled fish and vegetables, green salads or a seafood linguine. Always serve chilled.”

Perlezza Rosé Spumante  

Our extra-dry sparkling wine is one for the rosé lovers. Sourced from northern Italy, this fizz has subtle fruit flavours, is refreshing, and perfect for al fresco dining – we would recommend enjoying it chilled, as an aperitif on a warm, sunny afternoon. The delicate red berry and apple characters go well with a BBQ or a creamy risotto (for when the great British summer isn’t so... well... great) The Perlezza Rosé Spumante is now part of SPAR’s top sparkling wine brand, the sparkling rosé joins our award-winning white Perlezza prosecco in the range.

So, pop down to your local convenience store today to pick up a bottle (or two) of these great new wines to enjoy in the summer sunshine.
