The Best Supermarket Wine In The World Will Cost You £7 From Morrisons

Unless you're well into your wine, you probably only look at price and percentage when you're buying a bottle.

Sometimes you'll buy one that's got an insanely big discount on it so that you feel fancy when people spot it in your kitchen.

But now Morrisons have won an award for the best supermarket wine, and it's only £7 a bottle.

The supermarket's Mastercraft Sauvingon Blanc scored 97 out of a possible 100 points at the Decanter World Wine Awards - which is quite a big deal in the wine world.

It won a platinum award, putting it in the top 20 of all wines worldwide. Only 17 other bottles, one of which comes with a hefty £200 price tag, scored higher than good ol' Morrisons.

The supermarket also won platinum for its £7 ruby port - Cheeky Vimto, anyone?

Sainsbury's, Tesco, and even Waitrose didn't get a look-in at the awards - none of them managed to bag a platinum award.

Produced in New Zealand, the wine is described as having elderflower, gooseberry, and passionfruit aromas.

The bottle will usually cost you £10 but is on offer until 12 June - if you can find a bottle, that is. We're already legging it down the road to buy a few cases.

Looks like Morrisons might be snapping on the heels of everyone's favourite bargain big-shop destination Aldi, which literally won't stop winning awards. Aldi won over 50 medals at The International Wine Challenge earlier this month.

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." Thanks Clive, you're a good guy.

He also says the sauv-blanc is perfect for summer BBQs, especially if you're the kind of flash bastard who serves grilled prawns.

Morrisons also won an award last December, when its £4.75 Claret got a silver at the International Wine Challenge.

This Morning's wine expert Joe Wadsack said Morrisons' Mastercraft Sauvignon Blanc is like a fruit salad in aroma and has 'a really smooth and creamy texture', according to the Daily Mail.

Turns out you can get a bloody nice wine with the change in your back pocket. See you at Morrisons.
