Here is the first of our reviews from our new wine critic Richard Saxton. Find him on Twitter @grapedcrusader
And so my time as Find Wine critic begins…. First things first, this tastes nothing like a £4.99 wine. For that price you’d have no reason to complain for having your throat burnt after your first sip. This however is an absolute joy. It’s a relatively pale wine with scents of lemon peel and custard. The palate is a citrus fest with a nice zip of acidity. If I’d paid £10 for this wine I’d be perfectly happy with it.
At this time of year I tend to judge most wines on their potential for summer glugging. This one scores highly on the taste side of things, as well as scoring very well in terms of value. It’s something of a winning combination…..
There’s no noticeable trace of oak so I presume it hasn’t come into contact with any. This is a slight shame as I was planning a blinding “Karri Oaky” gag. Never mind…… My one remaining worry is if the Chaps at Find Wine will think less of me if I buy a case of the very first wine I review…. I heartily recommend this wine. A very encouraging start to my career as Find Wine critic!
