Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Made from the quietly brilliant Touraine region in France's Loire Valley, this is their take on Sauvignon Blanc.
Zesty and zippy, with generous gooseberry fruit and lovely, lively lemon freshness, this is happiest served with a platter piled with shellfish and seafood.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 2 years of purchase.
Hamish Anderson - Daily Telegraph Magazine 16/06/2012
Of the 2011 vintage, Hamish Anderson said: “This is a lovely example of Loire Sauvignon: grassy, delicate and moreish, it also has the necessary lift and zest.”

Of the 2011 vintage, Jane MacQuitty said: "You may not like the name, but Tesco's upper-echelon, own label selection is improving each year and summer 2012 brought with it a clutch of terrific Finest* European arrivals, including this zingy sauvignon. With all the grass, gooseberry and greengage fruit that any sauvignon fan could ask for, Ackerman's offering is less aggressive than many a tart Loire sauvignon and as such, it is en-route to a gentler Bordeaux sauvignon style."
Jamie Goode - S Magazine (Sunday Express) 29/07/2012
Of the 2011 vintage, Jamie Goode said: "The Loire is the original home of Sauvignon Blanc, but recently it's been eclipsed by zippy bottles from New Zealand. Here France fights back with a grassy, fresh white, brimming with lush passionfruit and pear."
