A perfect summer wine

FinestPouillyfume(337 x 599)Better weather on the way, so get those garden furniture sets out, pop up the Gazebo, clean the barbecue and get down to your local Tesco for the perfect summer wine, the Tesco Finest Pouilly Fume 2013 at a fantastic offer price of £7.99 until the 24th April 2015, so my recommendation is you snap some up some of this lovely Sauvignon Blanc while you can.

If you want a dry unoaked, tongue tingling refreshing drink on a hot summers day look no further than this bottle from the Loire valley. Beautifully fresh and crisp with a light bright straw like colour.  My only negative is that it’s pretty much lacking on the nose which was muted and very hard to pick out any distinguishable aromas.

The taste is where this wine really comes into its own, bright citrus flavours of lemon and limes which certainly packed a punch, it’s taut full of texture and it is very very dry but with nice minerality and steely finish.

As I said earlier for £7.99 this is a real bargain and worth stocking up on, not the best Pouilly Fume I’ve drunk but definitely worthy of the IWSC silver medal 2014 award it won and I will be opening a few bottles of this over the next few months.
