The Family Release range, which features Chardonnay and Shiraz varietals, has been specifically developed for Waitrose and is designed to showcase McGuigan’s innovative winemaking processes as well as offering good value for consumers.
The 13% abv McGuigan Family Release Chardonnay features ripe tropical fruit and peach flavours as well as very subtle oak notes, while the 13.5% abv McGuigan Family Release Shiraz is described as being a smooth, full-bodied red with rich plum and blackcurrant flavours and a warm spicy aftertaste.
Neil McGuigan, Chief Winemaker for McGuigan Wines, said:“The Family Release range was created in conjunction with the Waitrose team to celebrate more than a century of winemaking under the McGuigan name, which is truly a fantastic achievement for our brand.”
“We’re excited to bring these delicious wines to the UK market through Waitrose and look forward to seeing the different occasions wine lovers choose to enjoy them at.”
The McGuigan Family Reserve range is priced at £8.99 per bottle.
