In 2012 Winexpert completely overhauled the Vintners Reserve, World Vineyard, and Eclipse lines of wine kits. This past year Selection Original and Selection International were revamped under a single “Selection” banner. With all the Winexpert brands now being new and improved, we were curious to see if there has been any impact on our top ten most popular wines.
There are several interesting things to note regarding the Top Ten of 2013. Three wines have maintained a stranglehold on the top three spots since 2009; have they continued their dominance again this year? The number of white wines in the top ten has dropped from four to three with Selection California Symphony and Eclipse Sonoma Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay just missing the cut this time out. Taking one of those spots is a white wine making it’s debut on the chart. Speaking of debuts, there is a total of three wine varietals making their premiere appearance in the top ten. Another wine returns to the rankings after being bumped off it last year. One of the casualties, World Vineyard Chilean Merlot narrowly missed making the list again after placing sixth last year.
Without further delay, here they are. The top wines of 2013 – as decided by you:
|Selection Italian Montepulciano||T10||–||8||–||–|
|Vintners Reserve Riesling||T10||–||–||–||–|
