As we head towards the end of summer, there’s still time to explore new and exciting wines for those last few BBQs, warm days in the garden and picnics in the park.

With over 60 new arrivals hitting the wine aisle this month – from refreshing sparklings, crisp whites and fruity reds – there’s something new for every taste, budget and occasion as we transition to cooler temperatures.

A snapshot of some of the new wines landing in Tesco stores and online this month:

Piper-Heidsieck Champagne Rosé Sauvage NV, 12% abv, £45.00 (vegan)

Simonnet-Febvre Cremant de Bourgogne Brut, 12% abv, £15.00 (vegan)

Made in the traditional method by one of the oldest Chablis producers in France, this sparkling wine is full of fresh, fine bubbles, with intense aromas of citrus on the nose. Wonderful served on its own as an apéritif or alongside barbecued seabass.

Rustenberg Wild Ferment Unwooded Chardonnay, 13% abv, £12.00

From the Stellenbosch region of South Africa, this Chardonnay is wild-fermented, using only native yeasts that are found on the fruit and in the vineyard. Fruity, with bright citrus aromas and has a crisp finish, it will pair beautifully with a lightly spiced Thai beef or caprese salad.

First made in 1959, Penfolds Bin 28 is a blend, for which the best grapes are used from multiple regions including McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley. The nose displays strong plum aromas, with spicy dark chocolate and liquorice flavours on the palate, resulting in a delicious match for seared steak or grilled aubergines.
