Turner Road Reserve Chardonnay
Advantages: cheap price and tastes good
Disadvantages: not my favourite though
I love wine and the other day I decided to get a bottle to drink before going out because I always find I save money on nights out if I have a drink before I get there, as then I don't have to spend as much money buying drinks out which is always more expensive than buying drinks from the shop.
I picked this up in Bargain Booze as it was one of the cheapest - I am a student after all so try to save money wherever I can. The bottle looked really nice and had a lovely picture on it of an orange bird which I thought looked quite cute. And the label was also very nicely presented with swirly writing on it. The colour scheme was quite pretty. They say you eat and drink with your eyes just as much as with your mouth so to me presentation is always important. If you are pouring a glass of wine for your friends as well you always want the bottle to look nice otherwise its just not the same.
When I went to the till to pay for this, it was reduced to a fiver, and also I was pleasantly surprised as the man serving me gave me a free wine glass which I didn't expect to get. He also gave me a free lighter and chucked into the bag some other freebies such as a wristband and a whistle. I was really happy with all these freebies I will definitely be going back to Bargain Booze as I only went in for a bottle of wine but came out with a bag full of stuff and I didn't have to spend much money either.
This wine is 13.5% volume so it was one of the stronger percentage ones on the shelf. I must admit I prefer higher percentage drinks as I like to get my moneys worth. There is 10.1 units in one bottle of this so I would recommend sharing it and being careful when drinking. Remember to have a piece of toast and a glass of water after heavy drinking before you go to bed otherwise you might have a bit of a bad hang over the next morning.
This wine tastes quite refreshing it has hints of white peach and citrus as well as tropical hints of pineapple which I can just about make out. I thought this wine went really nice with gammon and pineapple and honey, however this might just be my own personal tastes I'm no professional wine taster but next time I have that meal I will definitley buy a bottle of this to have with it again as it tasted really good.
Overall I thought this was a good wine, not the best ever but definitely good for the money.
