It's becoming more popular these days for stars to launch a drink range of some sort, from gins, to vodkas, to wines, they're doing it all and the latest to join those ranks is the one and only Gary Barlow.

The singer/songwriter and former X Factor judge announced recently that he has launched his own range of organic Spanish wines and while they sound nice, they have us wondering, Could it be Malbec?

Gary has teamed up with Benchmark Drinks for the Gary Barlow Organics range which is said to include a red and white wine.

The red is described as "a juicy, unoaked wine, displaying aromas of red wild berries with a touch of rosemary and chocolate. The medium body and beautiful balance between the good fruit concentration, fresh acidity and fine tannins, make it a highly versatile food wine to match tapas, pasta and a wide range of savory and meat dishes." If you like reds then this one may just have you singing A Merlot Love Songs..

The white wine in the range is described as "pale bright in color, displaying aromas of lime and pear cut by a gentle note of anise. It shows a zesty, lingering lime palate. A refreshing wine, perfect to be drunk in summer with salads, poultry and light seafood dishes." I personally love a good white wine and it sounds like this one will have me coming Back For (Pinot) Grigio.

Gary himself has made a statement about the range on the official Gary Barlow Wines Instagram page where he said, "My passion for wine has been developing over the years, having been introduced to the joys of wonderful and rare red wines nearly thirty years ago! I am lucky enough to have travelled the world and experience many different food and wine cultures and these experiences have formed the foundations of the wines I have created.

"Spain has an extremely special place in my heart - it's a land of firsts for me - first time I left the country, the first place Take That ever played outside of the UK and now my first wine! I am so thrilled with the results and I hope you enjoy these wines as much as I enjoyed the process of creating them - whether you are lucky enough to be drinking them in Spanish style sunshine or round the table this Christmas with your loved ones."

The response from the public has been very positive so far and I personally love the bottle design. This tweet about the photo above has been circulating and I couldn't not include it because the caption just makes me laugh.

The Gary Barlow Organic range is exclusively available in Morrisons stores now and on garybarlowwines.com. Each bottle will run you ยฃ8.

So what do you think FoodTribers, are you ready to Let in the Shiraz and try this wine or will you be walking by it on the shelf wondering, How Did It Come To Tempranillo?
