The superior own-label range, similar to Tesco Finest or Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference, is now called Signature, rather than M The Best.

Morrisons Signature Vintage Cava Brut 2011
50% Macabeo, 35% Parellada, 15% Xarel-lo
Producer: Freixenet
Nice biscuity nose and very full-flavoured. Good.
12%
£8.99
Residual Sugar: 9.3g/l

Morrisons Signature Prosecco NV
100% Glera
Producer: Bacio della Luna
Light and easy palate. Can’t taste the 15 g/l residual sugar. This seems quite dry.
11%
£9.99
Residual Sugar: 15g/l

Morrisons Signature Fiano 2012
Puglia, Italy
100% Fiano
Producer: Fratelli Martini
Quite a ripe nose. Full-flavoured, with breadth and a savoury, long, taste.
12%
£6.99
Residual Sugar: 4g/l

Morrisons Signature Chenin Blanc 2013
Western Cape, South Africa
100% Chenin Blanc
Producer: Riebeek Cellars
Little aroma. Long intense taste but a bit flabby, overall.
13%
£7.99
Residual Sugar: 2.3g/l

Morrisons Signature South African Sauvignon Blanc 2013
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Producer: Trizanne Signature Wines
This smells and tastes of padron peppers. It’s OK, but not great.
13%
£7.99
Residual Sugar: 1.3g/l

Morrisons Signature Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Producer: Indevin Partners Ltd
Textbook nose. Tangy, refreshing palate with refreshing peapod flavour. Tart, savoury and long. Good.
12.5%
£7.99
Residual Sugar: 3.7g/l

Morrisons Signature Champagne Brut NV
55% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier
Producer: Louis Kremer, Epernay
Nicely fruity nose. Quite a bready aftertaste. Not bad.
12%
£19.99
Residual Sugar: 8.8g/l

Morrisons Signature Rueda 2012
Rueda, Spain
100% Verdejo
Producer: Diez Siglos
A bit soapy on the nose. Maybe with a touch of lime. Tart, bitter and somehow hollow.
13%
£7.99
Residual Sugar: 1.8g/l

Morrisons Signature Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2012
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Producer: Pierre Chainier
Little aroma. Simple and not up to much.
12.5%
£6.99
Residual Sugar: 2.5g/l

Morrisons Signature Chilean Casablanca Chardonnay 2013
100% Chardonnay
Producer: Vina el Rosal S.A.
A bit of stinky reduction on the nose, so decant early and give it a good swirl. Nice grippy taste. Lasts well.
13%
£7.99
Residual Sugar: 1.6g/l

Morrisons Signature Gavi 2012
Piemonte, Italy
100% Cortese
Producer: Araldica
Not much smell. Bitter almond taste.
12%
£7.99
Residual Sugar: 1g/l

Morrisons Signature Pouilly Fumé 2012
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Producer: Domaine Fouassier
Very reduced aroma, like metal polish. Bitter, pithy aftertaste. Disappointing.
12.5%
£10.49
Residual Sugar: 2.7g/l

Morrisons Signature Saint-Véran 2010
Burgundy, France
100% Chardonnay
Producer: Vignerons des Terres Secrètes
Absolutely no aroma. Good taste, though. Leesy texture and bright but the lack of aroma makes it just any old dry white wine.
13%
£8.99
Residual Sugar: 1g/l

Morrisons Signature Premium Manzanilla
Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Spain
100% Palomino
Producer: Lustau
What on earth is going on here? Got quite excited, because the aroma is exquisite and it’s a half bottle, for a reasonable price. Then it burns in the mouth and you realise the alcohol is 17%. That is so wholly out of order for Manzanilla. It burns.
17%
£5.99
Residual Sugar: 1g/l

Morrisons Signature Grenache 2012
IGP Oc, France
100% Grenache
Producer: Jean Jean
Pleasant, juicy nose. Spicy palate, with warm alcohol. Lacks body, but quite pleasant.
12.5%
£6.99

Morrisons Signature South African Pinotage 2012
86% Pinotage 14% Merlot
Producer: Riebeek Cellars
There’s some chocolaty oak on the nose – it’s been aged with French oak staves – and it has sweet, chocolaty oak on the palate. Overall, it’s refreshing and pretty good.
14.5%
£7.99
Residual Sugar: 3g/l

Morrisons Signature Chilean Pinot Noir 2012
Casablanca, Chile
100% Pinot Noir
Producer: Vina el Rosal S.A.
This stinks. Reduced, match boxy nose. The palate is nice and varietally correct, with an aniseed finish. If you buy this, pour it into a jug and back into the bottle about an hour before drinking and it’ll be fine.
13.5%
£7.99
Residual Sugar: 3.6g/l

Morrisons Signature AOC Pic St Loup 2011
60% Syrah, 40% Grenache
Producer: Jean Jean
An appealing, slightly floral nose. Spicy, herbal and right. Good.
13%
£8.99

:qofgoodvalue:

Morrisons Signature Côtes du Rhône Villages 2012
70% Grenache, 30% Syrah
Producer: Cave Coopérative de Séguret

Morrisons Signature Rioja Reserva 2007
90% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano, 5% Garnacha
Producer: Criadores de Rioja
Peppery nose. Nice flavours but the body is very light and the price is steep.
12.5%
£9.99
Residual Sugar: 1.7g/l

Morrisons Signature Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2012
97% Montepulciano, 3% Merlot
Producer: Piccini
This smells oaky, but there’s no mention of it. Farmyardy, savoury and quite a good taste.
13%
£6.99
Residual Sugar: 4g/l

Morrisons Signature Barolo 2009
100% Nebbiolo
Producer: Araldica
Very pale, but not showing its age. Inviting nose – a sort of Barolo-lite. Nice, but not really a £14.99 wine.
14%
£14.99

Morrisons Signature Chianti Classico 2009
90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot
Producer: Piccini
Dark fruit aroma. Very light palate. Pleasant for the money.
13%
£7.99

Morrisons Signature Crozes Hermitage 2010
100% Syrah
Producer: Ogier
Nice, bright, raspberry aroma and palate. Spicy, with warm alcohol.
13%
£9.99

Morrisons Signature Barbera D’Asti 2011
100% Barbera

£7.99

:qofgold:

Morrisons Signature Premières Côtes de Bordeaux NV
70% Sémillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Muscadelle
Producer: Maison Sichel
Lovely sweet smell. Bright, tangy and a good price. It’s non vintage dessert wine, and not to be laid down.
13%
£6.49
Residual Sugar: 65g/l

Morrisons Signature Alsace Gewürztraminer 2012
100% Gewürztraminer
Producer: Cave de Turckheim
Textbook rosy nose. Really, this is a dessert wine. Turkish delight, in a glass.

£7.99
Residual Sugar: 13.8g/l

Morrisons Signature Riesling Auslese 2012
Mosel, Germany
100% Riesling
Producer: REH Kendermann

Morrisons Signature Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2012
80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault

Dark and moody nose. Very spicy and peppery. Nice flavours but perhaps not quite rich enough for £15.
