This ChaLou Pinot Noir 2022 is the best value Pinot I found on my recent trip to Orange. It's a cracking deal for $35. Generous, delicious, fine and juicy - coupled with its killer shelf appeal, hunt it down.

Known as the Red Blend, when you get a red wine that's as easy to throw back as this, it doesn't matter what the make up is. What a fabulous slurp this is from El Desperado.
Dangerously smooth, this takes pizza and pasta night to another level. Throw me a burger to match though, but a ragu will be just fine. A fabulous Tempranillo from El Desperado that oozes value at 20 bucks.

These El Desperado labels were made using AI. The detail is captivating I must say. The label on this Rosé depicts a warm summer's sunset and that is precisely when you should drink this.
This $20 El Desperado Pinot Grigio really punches above its weight. It's a fabulous drink and top value. Go here for an inexpensive drop of pleasure.
The new release wines El Desperado wines from the The Pawn Wine Company have hit the mark and then some. The value at the price point screams the word bargain. Here is a very good drink for Sauv Blanc lovers.

Why is Riesling the best value wine in Australia? Crack this for $30 and you'll sit bolt upright. What a blistering wine we have here!

Classic Cabernet from the get-go. Sourced from a variety of sites around the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, this is super drinking for the asking price. Decant to drink now or hold, either way, you're winning.

For $22.50 this is superb value. Decant and reap the reward. What a beauty! Don't for a second think Coonawarra is a one trick pony because there are some excellent parcels of Shiraz about the place ready for you to dive into. Blackbook this Redman release.

Full disclosure on this one... I spent some time in the Hunter Valley during the 2020 vintage and I had my mitts in this wine. Daily checks, punch downs, I even shovelled it out (in near record time I'm led to believe). For $25, year after year this is a great drink. Some creative googling will land you a $20 bargain - what a steal!

It's been a while since I've seen a Billi Billi Shiraz. The last time was at a wedding many years ago. Classic function centre wine, this is reliable and is quite the bargain for 20 bucks.

Summer red wine drinking. That's what this is. Part of the new Oxford Landing range, it's a joyous red that will take a chill. And I reckon it drinks way better with a chill too. Perfect for those warmer days if you feel like something with a little more body than what a white wine can offer.

To be released in early 2023, winemaker Sam Wigan is pretty excited about this and sent a pre-release sneak peek my way. This is another Y Series bargain worth keeping an eye out for.
