Crown Cellars broadens outlook on wines from Spain and Australia

Published:  03 July, 2015

Carlsberg UK's on-trade wine division Crown Cellars has beefed up its Spanish and Australian wine ranges as part of its annual range review.

The results are seen in its new 2015/16 portfolio which includes 21 new wines in a range of 750 products.

Crown Cellars' MW Jonathan Pedley said: "The core of our Spanish portfolio has always been Rioja but exceptional progress has been made in quality and value in other regions including Carinena, Bierzo and Navarra.

"Customer interest has been growing in regional varietals and as such we have included an array of outstanding wines from across Spain.

"We have also added some premium sherries in response to increased interest in Spanish food and the use of sherry as an exciting cocktail ingredient.

"We also felt that Australia needed more regional identity so we have added benchmark wines from Coonawarra and Barossa."

There are also 23 new spirits in the list, several of them from Latin America, including Zacapa rum, ABA pisco and Velho Barreiro cachaça.
