In last part of this episode, we taste a Sancerre available from Asda for £12.68 in the UK.
Again does this wine live up to the expectations created by that fantastic “brand” of Sancerre?
In the first part of this Episode we taste our first of three Sancerres, supposedly the best Sauvignon Wines in the world!
In this episode, we taste John’s favourite Sancerre and then compare the other two to this benchmark.
So what tastes did we get out of this particular Sancerre?
The second part of our episode tasting Sancerre we try a bottle of Les Caillottes Sancerre which is available from Sainsburys in the UK.
Will it prove to be as being special as its pedigree suggests it should?
In the last part of this Episode where we are tasting Sauvignon Blancs from South Africa, we taste a wine produced by Helderberg Winery available from M&S in the UK.
The taste of this wine was a delicious example of a Sauvignon Blanc and could certainly be drunk on it’s own,
We gave this one a great score of 80!
This wine nudged the quality we experienced in the Sauvignon Blancs from New Zealand which can be found at: –
In the 2nd part of this episode, where we are tasting South African Sauvignon.
In this part, we taste a Porcupine Ridge Sauvignon Blanc, which is available at several retail outlets in the UK including Sainsburys
This Sauvignon Blanc smelt (had the nose – if you prefer) more like you would expect a Sauvignon Blanc to smell and indeed the taste was more what John would expect from Sauvignon Blanc.
In fact, this wine was good enough to just enjoy it on its own without food.
In the first part of this episode, we taste our first South African Sauvignon Blanc which is available from Asda.
We felt the wine was value for money and gave it a score of 65.
Well worth trying if you see it on a shop shelf and fancy seeing if you score it.
In this mini-series of tasting Sauvignon Blancs from around the world, we taste three from South Africa.
In particular, we taste Sauvignon Blancs from the following labels –
Southern Point, Porcupine Ridge and Helderberg Winery
In the last part of this episode, we taste another Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand this time from Mud House winery.
This wine is available from Asda and although the most expensive of the three in this episode it is by no means, in our opinion, the best of the three.
A great wine but as you can see from the video it does quite float our boat, in the same way, the Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference version did.

In part 2 of this episode, we taste another Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, this time purchased from Sainsburys at the competitive price of just £7.00.
The wine is from Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference range.
Both Johns were equally impressed by this excellent example of a Sauvignon Blanc.
