This Australian red wine has a sweet nose from the cherries, plums, with hints of leather, and some alcohol dryness. The taste is sweet as well with all the dark fruits, but watered-down. Decent light dryness in the mouthfeel. Slightly tarty in the finish. For a real cheap wine, that seems to be a blend, it is not too bad. Not a great one though.

Rating: 2.9/5

This French Sauvignon gives out mild, kind of weird, citrus aromas. The taste is much better with the Sauvignon Blanc flavours. Citrus, light grassiness with nice fruitiness. Decent dryness, but the finish is quite short. Nothing exceptional, but refreshing as should be. A little too tarty and mild overall.

Rating: 3.4/5
