Very refreshing with great flavours coming through
Very refreshing with great flavours coming through. My "go to" at the moment.
Just to be clear, I have been involved in the wine industry for many years, and believe I know a good wine from a bad wine. I bought 2 bottles of this (supposedly) Marlborough (Finest) Sauvignon Blanc, fully expecting it to be of a decent quality. Unfortunately, it is one of the most tasteless wines I have ever tasted. It is lacking in "nose" and flavour. I honestly would not recommend this wine to anyone.
I just left a rather less than glowing review for the "finest" Pinot Noir from Marlborough....a not too good bulk shipped UK bottled wine. This too is UK bottled but has survived the long journey in much better shape....perhaps indicative of the grape varieties. This SB has the grassy and gooseberry flavours you look for. It is mouth filling and plump with pleasing length and richness. Purchased with 20% off and a £10 token very good value....ho hum the search for a decent PN under a tenner goes on!!!!
In the sale before Christmas, this was really good value. Dry but not acidic;a good smack of the fruits. We liked it a lot. Even back at full price, it's well worth considering. Easy, everyday drinking.
Tesco Finest Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Very reliable Marlborough taste and good value for money.
This is an excellent buy with gorgeous tones and balance. Delicuos with food but equally tasty on it's own
Very nice wine with real gooseberry flavours & VFM from Tesco
This is an excellent example of a Marlborough Sauvignon and because it is one of the Tesco Finest selection it is very good value for money.
Not nearly as good as the Yealands we had previous
Made us feel a bit unwell. After the Tesco finest Yealands Sauvignon this was a big disappointment
An Improved Vintage
Being a lover of Sauv Blanc - I did find the earlier vintages of Tesco Finest somewhat sharp and disappointing. However, this vintage is more like the real deal.
