A South African wine exporter has extended its Arniston Bay range with a new variant launching into Asda.

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2006, priced at £4.99, comes from The Company of Wine People Europe, a joint venture between The Company of Wine People in South Africa and distributor ­Ehrmanns.

"The Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is the perfect extension to the Arniston Bay range. It caters for the new trend of consumers, who are moving away from Chardonnay and want a more herbaceous wine style," said UK and Ireland brand and business development manager Johan Hewett.
