  • Morrisons’ Mastercraft Sauvignon Blanc wins at Decanter World Wine Awards
  • It scored 97 points out of 100 and was the top-scoring supermarket bottle
  • It was one of the top 20 wines in the whole world after winning Platinum 

Morrisons has proved you don’t need to spend more than £10 on a bottle of wine after its £7 bottle was crowned the best supermarket buy in the world at a prestigious competition.

The supermarket’s Mastercraft Sauvignon Blanc, currently on offer down from £10, was awarded 97 out of 100 points at the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards, which are regarded as the Oscars of the wine industry. 

It was the best own-brand supermarket wine to win a prestigious platinum award, which are only handed out to the highest scoring wines.

Only 17 other bottles scored high than Morrisons’ discount bottle, which included fine wines such as a £200 bottle of Domaine de la Vougeraie Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016. 

Morrisons also won Platinum for its £7 Ruby Port.

No other UK supermarket won a Platinum medal. 

How does Morrisons’ £7 Mastercraft Sauvignon Blanc wine actually taste?

This Morning’s wine expert Joe Wadsack said Morrisons’ Mastercraft Sauvignon Blanc tastes ‘ripe’ and likens it to a ‘fruit salad’ in aroma, reports The Sun.

He said: ‘It has been allowed to rest after fermentation, giving it a really smooth and creamy texture.

‘It looks really fresh and it’s really easy to drink’.

Morrisons’ wine expert Clive Donaldson said: ‘We’ve worked with hard-working grape-growers and winemakers at this vineyard to create a wine that not only tastes great, but is affordable for customers. 

‘It’s perfect with grilled prawns on a bank holiday barbecue.’ 

Morrisons’ Mastercraft Workshop Benchmark Sauvignon Blanc is available in 450 Morrisons stores nationwide.

It’s not the first time a Morrisons bottle has picked up a prestigious award.

In December last year, its £4.75 Claret was recognised with a silver medal at the International Wine Challenge (IWC) competition.
