So not an outrageous bargain, but for anyone who loves this wine I'm sure they'll appreciate the price reduction. There's know way I'd pay £8.99 a bottle but £5.25, yes please.

Sorry, overpriced.

Where can I get it cheaper?

You can get a great bottle of wine in Aldi for £5, I have never had anything from Tesco thats remotely palatable for £5 at Tesco, whether full price, half price, a third off or whatever new method of obfuscating the real price they use.

We just had the Pays D'oc Chardonnay from Aldi, last night :£4.99 and pretty decent. Wouldn't go back to Tesco for wine if you paid me, they are meticulous at charging exactly what its tastes/worth and then some, i.e £5 wines are crap, £6 a little better and so on upto £10 above that - its a bit of pot luck, some good.

Wine is one area Tesco really falls flat, and the german discounters are running rings around them, with no nonsense well priced wines.

Just Tesco I think..... they like to have a lot of the wines reduced but it is the ones you can't do a price comparison with competitors.
Any silly high price then a reduction so you think you have a bargain.
I buy the Rawnsley estate reduced from £10.99 to £5.49 from Tesco, but I do know I am buying a £5 (ish) bottle for £5.49

This ranges from £5-10 a bottle a Tesco.
Best offer was at £10 when they had 3 for £12 plus 25% off gross original price.

Tesco need a throw a few real offers into the mix each week to get Wine customers back, that are genuine savings, where you go 'You know what that's much better than other £6 wines I had from Tesco, that was a bargain'.

Nothing surprises any more, £12 reduced to £6, £10 - third off, they are all much of a muchness, a £6 bad tasting wine, Tesco's own success in grading Wines and selling at a price point, has also become its own downfall.

They need to artifically throw in a few loss leaders, that are actually more expensive wines, to bring back an element of surprise, at least one a week, and maybe not even advertise the fact, let 'word of mouth' sell it. To give customer's a sense of 'beating the system'.

I take issue with all these wines that are over inflated so that they can be reduced all the time.
Tesco are a prime example of this practice. Changing wines, whilst in tesco the other day they had Wairu cove sauvignon blanc ( or whatever it's called now ) half price from £11-12. Now I have had this wine and its perfectly fine, but, Its brought over in bladder and bottled in UK, so should be cheap. If you go and buy a bottle of NZ sauvignon, estate bottled, it will taste better (subjective) and it will not be £11.....

I could not agree more. I have bought wines that are genuinely reduced and generally you really can taste the difference.

Exactly, Wairu Cove is typically of only tasting as good as its offer price, it doesn't taste like an £11-12 Sauvignon Blanc, and is bulk shipped and bottled (always worth checking wines are bottled in New Zealand).

The Aldi 'Private Bin' Sauvignon Blanc at £6.99 is a much better tasting Sauvignon Blanc, but a bit intense, if anything, but can see why peope would like it. I'm assuming its Bottled by Villa Maria, who also make a Villa Maria 'Private Bin' which is around £11, though £7.50 at Asda at the moment.
You buy it for £6.99 from Aldi, and you're happy because it does taste like Villa Maria, its in that league, more than you paid.

Marks and Spencer Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is probably my favourite for around £10 (25% off for 6, £7.50 at moment) but the Morrisons own label Marlborough is pretty good, £8.49, of the supermarket ones.

I remember when Ogio was £1.50 a bottle in Tesco. Was broadcast on HUKD a few years back. I got in quick and picked up about six cases of red and a couple of cases of the white. Tesco quickly realised the problem and started pulling it off shelves. As I recall the fights this caused made The Daily Telegraph! Oh happy days...

And at that time, the Marks and Spencer Marborough was still £7-8 now its £10, but reduced to £7.50 at the moment. In terms of value, the M&S is more expensive, but better value, in real terms-over time.
