Found 27th Feb 2013
Limited to a maximum of 6 cases per customer.

Also on Morrisons Cellar (website) but can't find a working code.....anyone?

Merlot.
This California Merlot boasts ripe red fruit and sweet oak taste and jammy scent. From the laidback experts at Turner Road, it's a smooth, easy-drinking red that works beautifully with a barbecued chicken leg or grilled steak.

Rose.
Serve this fruit-filled rose straight from the fridge and you'll enjoy the first of the summer wine! Flavours of ripe cherries, fizzy sherbet and luscious pink grapefruit are packed into this bottle to create the ideal wine to enjoy with friends.

Chardonnay.
Chardonnay doesn’t get much better than this easy-drinking wine by the Turner Road Winery. It’s smooth with a refreshing hit of apples and lemons, pineapple and vanilla. Serve with seafood and pasta or simply sit back, relax and enjoy on its own.

The Merlot is fantastic for a 'brand' wine - really deep and fruity - not your anti-freeze crap they have at that price-mark.. I should have posted this last week.

Stock up.

Bought a bottle of this last night and it was OK for price paid. What annoys me is actually how the supermarkets mislead over the 'was' price. This is a 2012 bottle which was never £9.99. You might expect to pay more for an older vintage. I'm no wine snob but these are basically sold cheaper because they're fresh into the bottle and not been aged, or designed to be for that matter.

Ok at £3.99, but, £9.99 please don't fall for this supermarket scam. Actually if you do buy a wine at £9.99 that is'nt always on offer you will taste the difference. I have been lucky enough to have bought some genuine clearance wines on numerous occasions and the difference is (generally) very noticeable. Still good price at £3.99.

Agree with the above two posts. Who do the supermarkets think they are kidding with these phoney discounts? There are still supermarket bargains to be had but you have to be very selective these days. For cheap wine, the regular asda 'three for a tenner' range changes weekly but generally includes some drinkable wines at £3.33 per bottle e.g the Heartbreak Ridge red. As for this deal, it's good at £3.99 and i'd buy a few if passing the aisle but i wouldn't make a special journey to get it. Have some heat.

This wine is always on offer at or around this price.

It's nothing great either.

I got a bottle of the rose, not the nicest, rather pay and extra £1 for Ernest and gallio

Agree with the 3 posts regarding super market offers.

If they discounted good wine, I would end up buying it at full price. But I just don't trust them and so never buy wine from a supermarket in the UK, unless I have to.

I go to my local independent, where I can get a £5 bottle of wine that is enjoyable.

More nonsense from Morrisons and their silly "offers".

They've tried to follow Tesco with their equally silly " half price or better" offers" and it's backfired.

Both Morrisons and Tesco sales were down in the last quarter as shoppers desert them for the other supermarkets.

£9.99 RRP... I almost fell off my chair when I read that. As far as I'm aware this wine spends most of its time at £3.99 anyway with a 'Save over half price' label on it. It's certainly not worth anymore than £3.99 so I don't see this as a good deal and I'm not voting either way.

Turners, Hardys, First Cape, Gallo, Kumala, Lindemans, Vina Albali, etc, are the box standard cheap wines that supermarkets buy in massive bulk, sell them briefly for a high RRP and then bring them down to the normal rate. I agree with the other comments, it's out of order, but hopefully by now people are wise to this. For alcoholics, a mid-week drink or for cooking, this wine isn't too bad at this price and it's better than some of the other cheaper brand wines. Personally I think Morrisons is rubbish for wine. If you want to treat yourself at the weekend with a slightly better bottle you're better off with Sainbury's or, if you're feeling slightly flush, Waitrose do some really nice wine and they often have a few discounted wines.

If that's the case, then they're cheeky buggers putting pictures up on the website with 2010 bottles.

Mine's 2010 vintage.

Good deal then imo! Shame that there aren't any Morrisons Cellar codes about

This is a reglular £3.99 bottle of wine which tastes like it and is put up to £9.99 just enough times so that Morrison's can claim it's a "discount" when it's put back to £3.99 again.

It's a generic cheap Merlot, indistinguishable froom loads of wine at this price. Even at £3.99 it's "meh" at best.

I agree with a caveat. The Morrison's "own brand special" McLaren Vale Shiraz (2008 I think, but been sold out for months), was beautiful, rich and full bodied, and a stonking bargain at £8 odd. The rest of their own brand specials are generally pretty good as well.

Hadouken!

Hmmm, I'll be honest, I haven't tried their own brands. Thanks for the recommendation though, I'll give them a try.

Unlike most of the posters here (it seems) I really rate this wine - and I think it compares well to similar ones (or better) in the claimed £10 price bracket. IMO there are few - if any - wines at the £4 price point that taste this good (I'm talking about just the red btw). But it's all subjective f course..

Heat!

I agree entirely! Don't know what these other moaners are going on about...

Also, you will notice if looking at the back label that it is bottled in Guildford-and thats not guildford california. There is nothing really wrong with that except for the misrepresentation that it was ever worth £9.99. Tesco do it with a N.Z sauvignon which has had a number of aliases - wairu cove- being one . Last time I looked it was bottled in manchester. Quite nice wine but not £9.99s worth. Especially when you can get villa maria, oyster bay for less.
