Budget wine week at Australian Wine Review
It had to happen really.
After the indulgence of Super Premium Week, it seems only appropriate that this week should be dedicated to much more affordable drinks that even rarely paid wine scribes (cough) can manage to pay for.
As a result, all the reviews for the next seven days I’ll be exclusively reviewing wines that have a RRP of $20 or less. I realise that $20 is hardly ‘bargain’ territory, but I figure that even $20 is achievable now and again and a vast proportion of what is drunk every day fits into that category (even though I sometimes neglect it). Hence the focus on the magical under $20 mark.
Now, I’m hoping to get plenty of wines reviewed, good or bad, and hopefully there will be many bargains. In fact, I guarantee there will be bargains dammit! Oh, and perhaps the only caveat is that tasting notes may be shorter than usual.
