Asda Extra Special Pinot Noir, New Zealand 2011

Asda Extra Special Pinot Noir

Looking for a supermarket wine worth splashing the cash on? David Williams picked three of his favourites writing in The Observer this week starting with this £8.49 New Zealand Pinot Noir.

He said: “When it comes to posh supermarket own-labels can you Taste the Difference? Are they really the Finest* wines known to humanity – are they Truly Irresistible? Having spent much of the past month tasting through most of the big grocers’ wine ranges as, one after another, they’ve been shown off – junket-style – to the press, the answer to all of the above is a Vicky Pollardian “No, but.” They’re never “The Best”, they’re frequently very average, but they can – as with Asda’s plump and juicy, light-of-tannin, cherry-berry-flavoured and salmon-friendly Kiwi Pinot – be pretty good value.”

Price: £8.48
