Doesn't Taste Too Bad Actually Castillo San Simon Red Wine £3 at Asda

44
Found 28th Feb 2015
Now before all you wine snobs get a cob on, I have just tried it and it tastes OK… For the Price!!

Its marked up at £3 and not reduced, available in store and online.

Now I ain't no Gilly Goulden but I don't like nasty wine. Its OK for £3, but its nothing special mind.

Hopefully someone will find this useful.

Is this a new Asda range to rival Sainsburys 'Taste the difference'?

I might try and sell them the idea!

Heat for the honest advert. Reminded me of the film "Crazy People".

been that price since day one but it goes down better than some pricier ones! :-)

A brilliant wine for the price. Jumilla wines are vastly underrated!

Better than Lidl's "Not quite so sh##" range...

I can't think of anything worse to put in my mouth than cheap, red wine. Oh, hang on!

I've been buying this for a while, fab for the price

whats the alcoholic content? i got it 12.5%

Have your front teeth dissolved yet?

I'm trademarking that sheeeet

señor me tiene un poco de vino basura podemos vender al Inglés tiene un sabor horrible, pero es sólo el raspado del suelo

It tastes like ****.

But it's £3.

All relative but the name puts me off. I'm a one or two bottle a week person and would rather spend double for something drinkable. Maybe if I were a bottle a day or more...

I thought it was a new brand from Asda "Doesn't Taste Too Bad Actually" like sainsbury's taste the difference or ica nt beleive its not butter. LOL

I don't drink wine, but surely "OK for £3, but nothing special" can't be great.

Does that mean it tastes okay compared to other £3 wines, or okay compared to, say wines up to £10?

Because if I drank wine, that would be an important detail for me.

Wine that just tastes ok. You only live once, haven't got time for this.

Love Jumilla since my first visit in Spain couple years ago and always drink it if I`m around. Highly underrated, but better than most of riojas and temranillos. Hidden little gem from asda.

The rose version is also £3 and is not bad at all.

Thats over 25% more in price and over £80 a year more a year based on 2 bottles a week.

But its probably nice.

Just tried Montepulciano from Aldi for £3.80 and it was not much better

Just bought one to try and its definitely palatable

then again I am a confirmed aldi baron st Jean £2.99 man!

just had some of this and if you let it breathe first it's fine for a bbq!

So Asda trying to compete with Aldi and Lidl, who have this cheap stuff at £3 all year round?

Its gotta be good for cooking with at the very least?

Just opened a bottle of this and can confirm that there were no alcoholics in the bottle.

*or bits of alcoholics (_;)
