Proving you don't need to spend the big bucks for the good stuff. Do you have a favourite to add?

We love a nice wine, but there’s a common misconception that you have to spend big to get the good stuff.

Deep Woods Estate Rosé $33.30

This pretty pink Rosé will be beautiful coming up to the Australian summer. Easy, balanced drinking, with notes of strawberry and sour cherry with a dry finish.

Jansz NV Premium Cuvee $24.40

This Tassie Sparkling is seriously good quality for its price point. A Pinot and Chardonnay blend, you’ll get citrus and strawberries throughout. Dry and light makes this one go down a little too easy!

Stonier Chardonnay $22.20

Grapefruit, gingernut and peach - I’m sold. This beautiful 2015 Chardonnay from the Mornington Peninsula is going to be awesome on its own, or with your summer seafood dishes. Seriously good price for a great quality Chardy.

Innocent Bystander Tempranillo, $22.20

This one will go down perfectly with a barbecue or a pizza night. The Innocent Bystander Tempranillo comes from the King Valley and Heathcote wine regions in Victoria. You’ll find some earthiness and juicy red berries here.

Cape Mentelle Shiraz $33.30

You can thank Margaret River for this big, spicy, flavoursome red. Find plum, pepper and smokiness here and enjoy with red meat dishes.

Do you have a favourite to add to this list? Please share, we'd love to know what you think.
