I prefer this over the Finest version

May as well buy it at this price, steal something more expensive if you really must steal.

Is the Buy 6 get 25% off still running?
Even more of a steal if that is the case.

About the right price for something that comes over in a 'bladder'.

besides the offer, there were two big clues that all might not be well.

The first was the name: Wairau Cove is neither a winery nor a place.

The second was the small print on the back label that indicated the wine was bottled in the UK. Together these two clues point in one direction: bulk wine.
Bulk wine is wine sold off in liquid mass by co-operatives and wineries who don’t want to bottle it themselves. With Wairau Cove, the bulk wine comes from several sources but there are four key suppliers. Tesco refused to say who but I understand these include Pernod-Ricard (whose Montana – or Brancott Estate, as we must now call it, but that’s another story – branded sauvignon blanc is well-known), Sacred Hill and Babich.

The best I can say about this wine is that it had a strong elderflower taste and would have been a brilliant buy to add to a punch made of cordial, soda, wine and lemon juice.
As a glass of wine it smelt tired, had lost its fresh zing and had the starchy, watery taste of slices of raw old potatoes.

Wow you're WAY overthinking it. Nice enough wine for the money.

Thoughtful

This is one of the funniest posts I've ever read on this site

Thank God we all have different tastes. I love chocolate but a colleague I work with hates it. Hence I'm going to buy some of this wine to see if I still like it. Once bought a £40 bottle of wine and gave half the bottle away. A valuable lesson learnt. Never yet had a bad NZ wine but then that's my taste.

Its a nice wine, imo better than brancott estate.

I've had this loads of times and it's a fabulous wine for that price. I don't care where it comes from, at the end of the day it's the taste that matters and this is light, aromatic and fruity, in fact, everything a Sauvignon Blanc should be.
