WHAT A RIP OFF NOW!!!!

Gutted - I've been buying the 3L box for £15/£16 for years and suddenly it's gone and this rip off 2.25 L box for £14 now has arrived! I will NEVER buy this again, but have discovered Tesco does a very good value 3L box, so Morrisons, you have shot yourself in the foot as everyone I know will now buy their wine from Tescos...... BRING BACK THE 3L at the old price then you will get alot of customers coming back to you!
