Old classic now not worth shelf space.
Used to be brilliant. Loved it, drank it all winter. Now it's just awful - been totally ruined. Sort thisout Tesco - READ YOUR REVIEWS & return to the old recipe (with a price rise) before Christmas - or we'll all be buying elsewhere.
Buy another mulled wine - not this one!!
I have never thrown wine away - until now! This was undrinkable. It was very sweet, thin with no body and the alcohol content was very low. If I had been able to do so, I would have submitted this review with no stars.
Far too sweet. Also not clear how much of the sweetness is sugar and how much sweetener. Will not buy again.
Rubbish, bring back the old recipe!
Another change for the worse. Now tastes quite watery compared with previous recipe. I had an older bottle and when I looked to see if there had been a change I realised the alcohol volume is lower too. It's a little better if you heat it for longer to reduce it a little but that shouldn't be necessary. A shame as the old recipe was pretty good if you wanted a mulled wine without the hassle of adding the spices etc yourself. Stop wrecking your products Tesco. :-(
I received a bottle of Tesco Mulled Wine as a Chri
I received a bottle of Tesco Mulled Wine as a Christmas gift but, having read all the negative reviews, hesitated until today to open the bottle. The only reason I am writing this review is because I felt I had to say how pleasantly I was surprised with the wine’s nice flavour and percentage of alcohol! I guess, all the negative reviews were because the reviewers did not follow the heating instructions to the letter - i.e. heat slowly on a low heat, not letting the wine to boil. If you follow the instructions, it is a really nice mulled wine with pleasant spice and fruit flavours and good enough alcohol kick if you drink a mug of it :)
Best In Class
This Mulled Wine is light, bright, fruity and spicy. It is delicious served very warm (not boiling) with optional extras of lemon slice and/or cinnamon. On its own, it compares well to any other similar product on the market. I don’t just wait for Christmas, this wine is always available in my kitchen wine rack!!
MUCH CHANGED FOR THE WORSE!!
The reviews tell their own story!!! Back in 2012 and 2013 this wine had 5 star reviews! Over the years Tesco have reduced the alcohol content. to 10% abv, then to 8.5% and for 2020 to just 5.5% abv. No wonder it was on offer this Dec. for just £2.50 per bottle! Not a single review above 2 stars. We were 2 families on Christmas morning and first drank a bottle of last year’s offering of 8.5%, which was tolerable, and then switched to this years which was awful! Too sweet, low on spice and quite unpleasant! PULL YOUR SOCKS UP, TESCO!
Awful - threw away after tasting. Tastes synthetic and very unpleasant. In previous years has been lovely - what have you done to it?
Complete and utter rubbish.
I have bought Tesco mulled wine for years and this year it was complete rubbish. It is basically a bottle of liquid sugar tasteless. Perhaps the price reflected the quality of the content. Tesco pull your socks up if you want customers to continue purchasing your products.
