Lyme Bay Winery creates more wines for Aldi
Lyme Bay Winery has added to the range of wines it produces for Aldi.
The latest additions from the English wine producer are Lyme Block Dry White and Lyme Block Rosé, which will join others in the retailer’s “Specially Selected” range.
The newcomers follow on from the success of the Lyme Block English Wine, Lyme Block Bacchus and the Lyme Block Sparkling Brut Reserve, which all launched last year. The sparkling variant was the first own-label English sparkling wine to be recognised as part of Aldi’s premium offer.
The Lyme Block Dry White is described as a “crisp and zesty white with well-balanced acidity” offering notes of lemon, grapefruit and nettle, coupled with a “subtle floral finish”. It is based around England’s signature grape, the Bacchus, and balanced with Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Reichensteiner and Chardonnay.
The Rosé is off-dry with crisp acidity with aromas of cherries, rosehip and strawberry. It blends Pinot Noir and Dornfelder English grapes.
Julie Ashfield, managing director of buying at Aldi UK, said: “Given the success of our three English additions to Aldi’s wine range last year, it’s a pleasure to be working with Lyme Bay Winery once again to showcase our continued support of British produce across all ranges. Adding two more wines to our shelves is testament to the success of the wines to date, and to the increasing appetite for English wines.”
The wines are made at Lyme Bay Winery in south Devon.
James Lambert, managing director at LBW Drinks, the producer of Lyme Bay Winery wines, said: “We are delighted at the success of these wines and to be continuing to expand our range with Aldi, a brand renowned for offering value and excellence when it comes to wine. To be bringing English wine – particularly still styles - to a greater number of people is a real privilege for us.”
Both wines are available in all Aldi stores across the UK and online costing £9.99 each.
