Matthew Clark Builds List

Matthew Clark is showcasing 150 new wines in its 2010 wine list.

The company, which won the Wine List 2009/10 of the Year award at the International Wine Challenge, hopes its 2010/11 list will prove to be even more of a success.

The latest list — which includes 1,180 wines from across the globe — has a range of new additions, but with a particular focus on Chile and Italy; two countries that showed the most sales growth in the UK on-trade last year, according to Matthew Clark.

“Chilean wines are ex-tremely versatile and offer great value for money,” said commercial director Ian Smith. “We are delighted to introduce Luis Felipe Edwards, Concha y Toro, Maycas del Limari and Cono Sur; comprehensive wine ranges which are exclusively available to the on-trade through Matthew Clark.

“The new entry-level Lor Romeros range offers four quality varietals at a great price, while the other wineries all offer a wealth of exciting aromatic grape varietals from cool climate regions.”

The company is also introducing a leading Italian producer on to its list this year, with wines that have “great ageing potential” and also a winery that offers 100% Sangiovese wines.

New additions from France include the Rare Vineyards range from LGI, which includes regional varietals such as a Malbec and Pinot Noir by Alain Grignon.

“This year’s list was designed to reflect our 200-year heritage,” said Smith. “We also scooped the Wine Educator of the year award at the International Wine Challenge.

“So we added a ‘knowledge’ section to this year’s list, which is full of help and advice,” she added.

For the on-trade, the company recommends pubs contact their account managers to seek help in navigating the 1,180 wines in the list in order to find the right selections for their venue.
