"This makes Ribena taste sour. Far too sweet without food to tame it. With cheese and serrano ham, it settled down a bit and there was some complexity."

"A real Perlé! Magnificent for under £6. Liked by all, on the list again."

"Lovely ripe fruit, full and leaves a long aftertaste, excellent wine for the price."

GE10161 GE10161 Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Kabinett, Willi Haag 2015

"Class act. White peach nose continuing to palate, with perfect balance of racy fruit acidity and off-dry sweetness. Decent, if not amazing length, but for the price this is a pure clean peachy delight."

"Very forward zingy lime acidity, counterbalanced by light sweetness. As a lover of German Riesling it didn't really work for me; it seemed to lack balance, and the lime was so dominant I found it weary after a while. Maybe better with food, just not my style."

"I noticed this wine in the latest catalogue as a new addition to the WS. Have never heard of the Bobal grape before and don't think I've tried a wine from Valencia either. So, I purchased a bottle to try and drank the same evening with a chicken, chorizo and tarragon dish I cooked. Perfect match. Loved the wine. Medium to full bodied, well rounded with a slightly sweet note. About to order more. Great value for the quality and lovely drinking now."

"Initially a bit medicinal but given a bit of breathing improves, good with food wine, for those used to new world fruit bombs this is a very European style, on the dry side."

"Nutty and peachy, concentrated, with refreshing acidity."

"A very nice wine indeed. I'm no expert, but I would say that it is reminiscent of a Burgundy, but with more pepper and spice, perhaps then more like a good quality northern Rhone. I'm not sure that the WS description of 'light' is correct. I thought it was full, rich, smooth and delicious. It has a lovely floral nose and a long peppery finish of gentle tannins The WS food matches of 'bangers and mash' or 'charcuterie or sausages' devalue this wine in my opinion and the allusions to BBQs do it a great disservice. This is a serious wine of considerable depth and complexity after being opened for an hour. We drank it with Eggs Florentine, but I think it would go equally well with roast lamb or grilled meats. Excellent value for money and highly recommended."

"This had somewhat of a smoky tint to it. Could this be the oak? Anyway, not really to my taste, probably best suited to a burnt meat barbecue."
