McGuigan launches its most awarded wine into ASDA

McGuigan Wines, the four time international winemaker of the year, is launching the 2016 vintage of its iconic Bin 9000 Semillon into ASDA supermarkets nationwide.

Having won the IWSC Semillon Trophy four times, Bin 9000 Semillon has become one of McGuigan’s most awarded varietals – recognised for encompassing the heritage and provenance of the McGuigan brand.

Harvested from grapes grown in the Hunter Valley region – McGuigan’s historical home, and world-renowned as the leading region for Semillon – this premium wine is a true reflection of the style that the Hunter produces. The 2016 is full of fruity gooseberry and lime flavours, with a crisp and zesty acidity that has a long lasting finish. The wine also shows fantastic ageing quality and will develop distinctive Hunter Valley toast and honey undertones as it ages, as seen in the 2003 and 2007 IWSC trophy winning vintages.

Chief winemaker, Neil McGuigan said: “A fantastic wine we are really proud of, Bin 9000 Semillon has been an integral contributor to our award-winning success, and is an excellent example of why the Hunter Valley is world-renowned for its outstanding Semillon production. We’re excited to see the distribution grow even further with ASDA – giving even more consumers access to a true taste of this wonderful grape varietal and region.”

The 2016 Bin 9000 Semillon is currently available to buy on ASDA online and will be in stores from early June, RRP £13.98
