Review from tesco.com

Bought 12 bottles of the 2016 and thought it a very decent wine for the price. So I ordered another 24 bottles. What arrived was the 2017 vintage even though it still says current vintage 2016. The 2017 wine is not as good as the 2016 and unfair of Tesco not to at least warn customers that the vintage has changed.

Review from tesco.com

Having been a fan of the Wairau Cove Chardonnay for some time which is also our favourite wine , I took advantage of tesco' recent 25% off 6 bottles and purchased 30 bottles from 2 tesco store only to find that on opening 2 bottles it tasted like Sauvingon Blanc. I took the part opened bottle back to the store who reimbursed the cost of the bottle of wine. I have since recieved a letter from tesco to say that they are unable to investigate the matter any further and that the matter has been passed to their supplier. My concern is that other bottles maybe Sauvingon blanc and was wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem. I'm not a semiliae but I know what I like.

Honest value

This Chardonnay was on offer and I bought a dozen. A very good purchase of an uncomplicated and drinkable white - especially good when not over-chilled.

Love it
