The Cotes du Rhone appellation is one of the world’s largest wine-producing regions. The variety of grapes is amazing. Sainsbury’s updated ‘Taste The Difference’ range is doing a good job of teaming up with good producers and releasing own-label wines that are interesting and reasonably priced. Good wine.
Tasting notes: From the ‘Cotes de Rhone’ region of Southern France. Pale straw colour. Crisp, fresh aromas of white stone fruit, white flowers & citrus. Dry and faintly aromatic. Balanced acidity. Medium length to the finish. Some intensity and some complexity. Good value for money.
