Too sweet!

2 stars

Although stated on the label that it was a softer, sweeter wine I found it far too sweet. As a confirmed red wine enthusiast of many years standing I found this so much sweeter than any other red wine and did not enjoy it at all. Sorry! But for wine drinkers who find most red wines a little too dry they would probably love this one.

Not just a summer wine!

5 stars

A wonderful fruity chilled red which is my go to wine for any occasion. Although the title suggests this is a 'summer' wine, I enjoy this all year round, it's easy drinking, tasty and light for a red. This wine is now a firm favourite with all my family and friends and highly recommended!

A good Aperitif

5 stars

I have this wine chilled, it is a very good wine to drink before a meal as an aperitif.. It is slightly sweet and only 10% strength so a refill is permitted. I will be buying more of this.

Overly sweet red

1 stars

As a lover of red wine I was looking for a lighter red for summer drinking and checked the ratings for this wine and seeing excellent reviews I decided to order a case.What a disappointment! I found it so sweet I could not drink it. The only way I could serve to friends was to add lemonade and fruit to construct a form of "Sangria"! Still got 5 bottles left and don't think I'll ever use them. True lovers of red wine will hate it. Very disappointing.

Love it

4 stars

A friend bought a bottle of this for us recently and we decided to buy a case. Very light and softly sweet and fruity. A lovely wine for non formal occasion. Not what you would expect of a red usually but we were pleasantly surprised.

What a fantastic wine

5 stars

I love the fact that this red wine is served chilled. Many of my friends have now tried it and just love it too.

Excellent chilled red wine

5 stars

One of the best red wines going and can be chilled satisfactorily without distortion. If you like a delicate sweeter red wine then this is for you. Most red wines are often very dry and this alternative makes a pleasnt change. I wouldnt drink any thing else.

Perfect

4 stars

This wine is realy nice very palletable smooth and easy to drink. I bought this when you had the wine case on offer so was reasonable price. Cannot afford to buy it all the time at £6.99 but not such a bad price at £5.00. Look foreard to the next promotion.

Sweet

2 stars

This was far to sweet for a red wine. Although on the bottle it should be made a prominent feature when selling

Sweet and delicious

5 stars

This sweet red wine is delicious served chilled. Very easy to drink with no vinegary after taste.
