Spar reveals first organic wine

Spar's Orbis organic wine

Spar has dipped its toe into the organic wines market with the launch of two bottles under new brand name Orbis.

The new Orbis range is produced in Europe’s leading region for organic vineyards, Castilla La Mancha in Spain, where there are more than 50,000 hectares under cultivation.

Available exclusively to Spar retailers from 29 June, the Orbis Organic Tempranillo and Shiraz, and the Orbis Organic Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc bottles will launch at a promotional price of £7 each until 9 August 2020.

Philippa Carr, Master of Wine at Spar UK, described the range: “The Orbis Organic Tempranillo Shiraz blend is a deep cherry-red in colour with aromas of strawberries and fruits of the forest, making it smooth and well-balanced. Enjoy on its own or with hearty food like meats, cheese or mushroom dishes.

“The white wine is a Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc blend and is pale lemon in colour with aromas of ripe peaches and tropical fruit flavours, making it a crisp and well-balanced white wine. Great match with fresher, lighter cuisine especially vegetables and fish, green salads and seafoods. Serve chilled.”
