MAJESTIC WINES SELECTION 2021/22

SUMMARY
Top selection of really well priced whites in the £5 to £10 section. Also some really great value quality wines from Spain and Italy coming to the fore. On the downside Germany seems to be missing. Wines from Majestic are particularly good value when bought as part of their Mix Six offer, all the following wines are listed offer price (also watch out for variations in price as there are frequent new offers).

A few of the Definition range is listed here, but they're all pretty much spot on stylistically and well priced to boot. There's also a new Majestic Loves range, all at £5.99, some really well made good value wines.The search tool on the Majestic website is not what it was so you might need a bit of perseverance or see them in the shop to find some of these wines. Also worth checking out the sister companies in Naked Wines and Lay and Wheeler.
