Ordered two bottles first was a pleasant white wine. When we opened the second it was a Rose wine in the identical bottle. ?????Is this a first?

Very disappointing

2 stars

I bought this on the strength of all the good reviews as I enjoy dry white wine and was keen to try something different. Maybe I got a dud bottle but sorry, this was just sour. Tried it on its own and with food without success. Very disappointed.

Review from tesco.com

Fantastic sourcing from Tesco and a credit to Codice Citra. It's remarkable that one can produce such a high quality wine in such large quantities from a local grape. Fruity, mineral with m mouthwatering acidity and long finish. Brilliant value, buy all you can get.

Treasure in a bottle

Review from tesco.com

Came across the Passerina by chance visiting Uxbridge. Looking for a bottle of something already chilled we selected this. What a lucky choice, this is a superb wine with a very good balance of fruit and dryness without being too fruity, too sweet or too tart. This is now our most preferred white wine, with or without food.
