    The 4.99 sparkling rose Griffith Park beat off some of the world's finest plonk to bag a place in the connoisseurs' top 10 fizzies.

    The Morrisons wine tantalised the tastebuds of 60 international judges in a blind test as they sipped 408 entries from 24 nations - with many costing six times more than the bargain basement sparkler. The other top 10 bubblies had an average price of 25 - with one French number costing 31 a bottle.

    A spokesman for the prestigious Effervescents du Monde contest in Dijon, France, described it as "a real discovery". Islay Kennedy, whose company Vickery Wines imports Griffith Park from Australia, said: "This is a great win against some of the top champagnes in the world." Suzie Cornwell, Morrisons' senior wine buyer, said: "This is a great achievement." And Martin Isark of supermarketownbrandguide.co.uk added: "Supermarket shoppers know that rose wines deliver quality and great value for money."

    Soft pink in color with a fi ne, creamy and persistent mouse. Lemon citrus aromas harmonise with fresh strawberry and red currant characters that linger on the finish.
