A Great Quaffing Wine
I'm on my 4th case of this great wine now and its not varied dramatically from the first 2013 vintage case we bought some way back. It has a crisp fresh fruity taste on the palette, with some after notes of grapefruit, which are delightful. At this price you just can't go wrong. Additionally, they now seem to have fixed the twist (or not twist) bottle top problem that meant you had to be an olympic weight lifter to open it.
Wine was good
This wine was very good,but I had a great deal of trouble getting the bottle open. I couldn't undo the top. The bottle I got open in the end was by using a hacksaw on the top. My son in law has opened another three bottles at Christmas. I will wait to see if I can open the other two. The wine was worth it but might put me off buying this case again.
Lovely Sauvignon Blanc
This is one of my favourite Sauvignons. It's light, fruity enough, but not too much so.
Sauvignon Blanc is our white wine of choice. New Zealand versions are reliable and good but expensive, French at our price level we see as erratic. Our default source has become Chile and this wine just confirms why. It is everything a good SB should be and at a reasonable price. We loved it
Excellent, Chilean Wine
I have only recently discovered this wine, but I now look for it on the shelves all the time. It has a distinct large initial C on the label and it is one of TESCO's Finest, which I agree with, it is on a par with two other fabulous Sauvignon Blancs I also adore! At the moment it is on special offer so I have, today, stocked up, but as it is so moorish, I am sure it won't be hanging around very long, keeping cool in the refrigerator! I thoroughly recommend this wine.
Worth a try
I have been drinking quite a lot of Sauvignon Blancs lately, very few (apart from the cheap NZ ones) are bad but many fall into that good but indistinguished catergory, this is one of them. A decent wine with fruit that comes through and a slightly bitter finish, well made and just enough difference to make it worth buying, and the offer price makes it a very good BBQ wine. Sauvignon Blanc is on a roll at the moment and anything with that grape seems to sell, but it is a lot more difficult to find something that stands out, even the more expensive NZ ones are much of muchness though good, it seems the popularity has produced a degree of blandness, back to the Loire perhaps ?
same wine, new label
Preferred the old design, but its all about content, and that is still very good. This batch hover has problems with its crew cap, very hard to open, not every petite lady will manage.
Not as good as the 2011 vintage
An enjoyable wine but sharper than the 2011 vintage which seems no longer to be available - a shame as it was our all time favourite Chilean Sauvignan blanc. Another disappointment is the difficulty of opening the bottle. We had to cut the metal top off which is not a very safe thing to do. Surprised that this problem has not been remedied. Would buy again but only when on very special offer.
Good refreshing white wine
Plenty of nettle and lemon flavours - surprisingly fruit-driven for a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. Good with fish, or as a very refreshing aperitif.
Delicious, once you get inside the bottle
Have no complaints about the quality or taste of the wine, but without exception, I had to use a wrench to open the bottles. I am sure I am not the only customer to encounter this problem with this batch. This has never happened before, and I do order quite a lot of wine from Tesco. I think this is something Tesco needs to take up with the supplier.
