The plastic cork was a pain to pull. The wine itself was pale but bright. It smelled peachy with a little pear drop. It was dry with a crisp acidity. It tasted quite fruity, although we’d chilled it to the max. 11.5% alcohol kept it light.
It was a good, easy to drink white to serve cold on a weekday. As it warmed up it became clear that it wasn’t fine wine, but at £3.15 from Majestic, Richard was happy with his namesake.
