Aldi Wine Exquisite Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2015 was awarded a Gold Medal at the 2016 Decanter World Wine Awards.
The wine is available in nationwide, priced €8.99, and comes from the Casablanca Valley in Chile. Recently featured at Aldi’s Summer wine range tasting, the award winning wine is light an refreshing, with the crispy acidity that characterises Sauvignon Blanc and a pleasant blend of citrus and green apple flavours. A delicate hint of white flowers and a dainty herbal note add complexity to the wine, which will go especially well with seafood or goat’s cheese based dishes.
The Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) are trusted internationally for its rigorous judging process and on their 13th edition, Aldi had a total of 22 award winning wines. Besides the golden Sauv Blanc, three wines received Silver Medals: Exquisite Collection Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Lot 12 Chenin Blanc, Lot 08 Colchagua Carmenere 2012.
Thirteen wines were awarded Bronze Medals and five more received a “Commended” mention. Most of these wines are under €10.
