Oddbins Own Label White WineHalf a palate stacked right by the counter, dozens more bottles tumbling from logo plastered boxes in the window – you can’t fail to notice the mammoth promotion of Oddbins new own-label wines.

Two wines in the range, both retailing for £3.99 – the red is well, red, while the white is described as being “made from a blend of grapes grown in the Languedoc-Roussilon area” Read Colombard, Grenache Blanc, Viognier maybe a touch of Chardonnay or Suavignon…

The white is dry, crisp, gently fruity, highish acidity and perfectly drinkable. Hay, it is £3.99 and perfectly OK for being so. Alcohol 12%. Screw-capped. “Trust Oddbins to produce a light, refreshing, great value drinking wine” Not sure what else you are supposed to do with it apart from drink but there you go…

The red is less exciting, rather dull really…

Oddbins Own White, 2005, Vin de Pays d’Oc, France. £3.99
Scribblings Rating - 86/100

Oddbins Own Red, 2004, Vin de Pays d'Oc, France £3.99
Scribblings Rating - 82/100
