The report suggests Russia's consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor has banned Delicato's Gnarly Head Chardonnay, Crane Lake Moscato and Accolade Wines' Geyser Peak Merlot because they reportedly contain "excess levels of phthalic acid and pesticides".

However, just-drinks understands that Accolade is yet to be contacted by the Russian organisation.

A spokesperson for Accolade told just-drinks: "We have seen media reports and are seeking more details. Naturally, we are most concerned, as we adopt the highest viticultural and production standards, so we are treating this very seriously."

In August last year, Russia banned certain UK products, prompting the Scotch Whisky Association to begin monitoring the move.
