This came highly recommended and I thought it a pleasant enough blend with enough Sauvignon to fess up a refreshing fresh and fruity edge on a warm day.
This is a Superquinn Special and I liked the fact that this was unoaked.
Citrusy – but not tropical – notes.
Other reviewers have described this as a Kiwi Style Sauvignon.
Not so, a bit too fruity and flabby for my own taste Crusade. Though good value on sale as a drinks party wine.
We first met
this in Cellarmaster through Alan’s recommendation.
Very refreshing, rounded pallette with not too tart grapefruit tropical citrus.
Good everyday drinking.
‘Picked in the cool of night to preserve freshness and fruit aromas’
Certainly different, quite light.
Honey mellow tones, didn’t have the zing
I expected of the Sauvignon Blanc / Gros Manseng blend.

A family favourite. Tempranillo mainly. Distinctive. We actually prefer the simplicity of the standard
Campo table wine as it’s nothing pretentious, though the Reserva – aged for 12 months longer in Oak – is always welcome. We presented this to the Geraghty’s: Erin, Simon, Stella & Leslie when they came to Dinner accompanied by Amy & Ross. We also enjoyed the Domaine Duffour Cotes de Gascogne 2012.

From O’Briens. Very pleasing blend of mainly Columbard.
The label says it’s unoaked and it was quite quaffable.
