We have tested 3 cartons, 2 from 1 pack, 1 from another, the 3rd untouched. The 3 we tested are all corked. We surmise that all 12 are bad. We will contact CW shortly. This is very bad.
It gets worse - bought 12 (3 boxes of 4) of these, 36L - all corked.
We bought 12 boxes of this in August and only opened one now. It is sour / vinegar, so obviously the packing is compromised. I see that another reviewer says the same thing. We'll soon know if any more of this batch are off - that's 72 pounds worth, and we'll have to do something. Anyway cross this bridge when we open another. Until now Calais Wine have been super- good with customer service, so if the worst comes to the worst hopefully they'll let us bring them back and replace with something else.
Oh dear, we just opened it, it's vinegar.
Bought 3 of these in August, had to pour all away, contents had gone off, total waste of money, won’t be buying again.
Bought two boxes. One was so bad it seemed corked. Odd for a box! The other was overpowered with tannin, a harsh taste, and a nasty aftertaste.
Unless we were extremely unlucky to get two awful boxes, avoid!
Literally had a sip from each box, and then poured 6 litres of ‘wine’ down the sink. :(
It's nice, light, smooth and fruity. Open the box pop it on the shelf and you got a lovely glass of wine when you fancy. Amazing value this was in a supermarket at £16.99
I've seen people taking a whole trolley of just these boxes in while and red.
An everyday wine.
