What on earth was I thinking of. A £3.99 Chilean Sauvignon Blanc with a horrid gold label just isn't going to be good is it? But I brought it anyway, seduced by the striking label in anticipation of tomorrow's Wine Blogging Wednesday. Wish I hadn't really. I have brought a different bottle for tomorrows event. The label though is quite striking in its black and gold glory - striking or tacky? That's the problem with gold on a label it can look classy or veer the other way and look cheap.

Wine Tasting Note: Haras Character Sauvignon Blanc, 2001, Maipo Valley, Chile.
Brought at Oddbins for £3.99.
Sharp and watery flavour, citrus and a touch of herbs. Reasonable length. Crisp acidity. Funny sherbety-wood flavour on the finish. As you can tell I didn't like it much. I see it has disappeared from the Oddbins website. Alcohol 13.5%.
Scribblings Rating - 78/100
