It’s all a matter of taste.
Sometimes supermarkets' own-label wines can look a bit dull. Sometimes with generic labels, they may not look exciting but we trust they offer good value for money. Well do they?
Bulgarian Cabernet Sauvignon (£2.99) Every student will remember their early days of wine drinking cheap Bulgarian plonk. But although the quality of Bulgarian wines suffered in
the early 905, they are now completely back on form. This is no exception, and for a sub-red it’s amazingly full- bodied, with pleasant dry berry fruit character and subtle tannin. The best £2.99 red I've tried in ages.
