McGuigan Wines launches new Family Release variety

March 24, 2016, 1:11 pm

Fourth-generation Australian winemakers McGuigan Wines has launched new Family Release range exclusively into Waitrose.

The Family Release range, which features Chardonnay and Shiraz varietals, has been specially developed for Waitrose and showcases McGuigan’s winemaking processes combining quality with value.

With South Australia globally renowned for the quality of its grapes, a careful selection of vineyards has produced these two wines.

The McGuigan Family Release Chardonnay has an ABV of 13% and features ripe tropical fruit and peach flavours and very subtle oak notes and the McGuigan Family Release Shiraz has an ABV of 13.5%, delivering a smooth, full-bodied red with rich plum and blackcurrant flavours and a spicy aftertaste.

The McGuigan family has been making wine for four generations, sourcing fruit from Australia’s best wine regions.

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 available now in Waitrose at £8.99 per bottle.
