Passion fruit, nettles,and green apples on the nose. It has an excellent crisp acidity with tons of fruit. Fantastic value.

Herbaceous, fresh cut grass, passion fruit and gooseberry nose. Passion fruit dominant and quality high acid flavour.
A great textural mouthfeel. Great value, an old favourite.

I find it smooth and well balanced with the right acidity and very easy to drink. Really good product for the price as said earlier, a supermarket wine. Not too grassy or citric which I don’t care for as much.
