Calloway Crossing less than half price. Was £7.99 now £3.99. Has just been reduced further because I paid £3.99 for this last week.
Might be in-store only because when I tried to post picture form website it was saying it was "currently unavailable".

Calloway Crossing was £8.32, had a bottle last night and it's horrible

I would agree with that. I like anything alcoholic, but that wine last night was rank.

I feel proper ill today too, sick as a dog, could be down to the wine and it could not be.

Either way, i'm swerving it in the future

Which was it? There are two Calloway varieties in the title, and Chardonnay could hardly be more different than a Caernet/Shiraz red.

On the other point, I've long suspected that wines are pre-priced high in order to appear like a bargain at cut price. It pays to do your homework, there are still bargains to be had.

£2.99 including duties is about a rock bottom price for a wine bought in the UK so if you expect to get what you pay for then it's worth knowing about this deal. I've never tried the Calloway plonk though (either colour) so I can't judge.

This wine is always on offer for around £3 so it's one of those con deals. I think the red is slightly better than the white from recollection.

This is still £3.99 in all my local Tesco stores, not £2.99.
I personally would not pay more than £3 for it, it is certainly not and never was an £8 bottle of wine.
I have a £10 off £100 voucher for Tesco wine and it's all a con with the supposed 50% sale, the prices are just hiked in the first place, needless to say i haven't used the voucher.
Tesco's competitors are much better at the moment on beer and wine prices, trust me i am an alcoholic!

Hic!

Yes, I realise that a Shiraz is different to a Chardonnay. There's a red on offer and a white on offer. Hope that clears it up.

its never worth £7.99..I would certainly not pay that. I um and ar at £3.99 a bottle for this.

Its £2.99 in my tesco's tonight. This brand keeps going down to "half price" every few months normally at £3.99.

At 3 quid a bottle its worth buying a few if for nowt else to bring to a party and if anyone asks say it cost you £8 a bottle ;-)

I appreciated it too; I just bought a boatload at 2.43, voted hot

PS - also reduced for win orders - cant recall exact price but around £17 for 6

I can see why there is a bit of confusion here, Calloway Crossing is on offer and really is poor wine but Galloway Crossing is also half price at Tesco but is a very nice wine. Both same price i think.
#17
It's pretty harsh stuff. Not had it in a long time but can still remember the aftertaste.

£7.99 for this brand is laughable. I wouldn't entertain it at the "discount" price.

If you want a 3 quid wine then stick with those that are always at 3 quid. For reds, buy a generic Chilean Merlot. Most of the supermarkets will have one.

It's more difficult to find a reliable white at 3 quid. Look out for a French white Bordeaux from the Entre Deux Mers region. Lidl have one from time to time.

I had the Chardonnay. Pretty sure it was Calloway Crossing and not Galloway, was disgusting.

As for the people saying expect to get what you pay for, i've had plenty of lovely wine for £3-4, even from the local Co-op!

Yes but the question was for the poster 'Stradders' who said that he/she had tried one and not liked it. I asked if it was the white or red that stradders had tried.

The question has since been answered.

Are you sure about this. I've never heard of Galloway Crossing and would be suprised that two brands with near identical names, and similar price points would be allowed to co-exist in the same country, let alone on the same supermarket shelves.

The only reference I can see when googling for "Galloway Crossing" appear to be mis-types by people posting Tesco deals on forums, which is understandable with the huge output of E&J Gallo clouding people's memories.

I beg to differ...I am just raging that I missed the deal! I am a red wine drinker, and think it is more of a mine field when buying red... because when it's rank it is RANK!
I tend to prefer aussy reds as I find their flavours more fruity and palatable than others. I think this wine is lovely. Definitely in my top 10! Maybe you are not giving the wine a chance to breath?.. which btw mamkes a huge difference to the flavour (and strength so I am told.. but don't quote me on that!)
Mmm wish I hadn't missed the deal I'd have bouhgt 10 bottles at £3! :-p

I rarely drink Australian Wines. Prefer European Wines with character. But I have to say, the Cabernet-Shiraz Calloway Crossings, Possibly one of the best every day reds I have ever tasted. Highly Recommended, for around £5. TeeMyob
