We've been brought up to believe that the more expensive a bottle of wine, the tastier it will be... but that's not the case anymore. There are some amazing wines out there available at our local supermarket bottle shops, including this award-winning, $7 drop.
Yep, that's right. Sold at Liquorland and First Choice bottle shops around the country, the 750ml bottle of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc from Story Bay has just scooped an award for the best wine under $20 at the Winestate Wine of the Year Awards in Adelaide.
Beating out over 2,500 other wines in the category, the wine scored the highest rating in blind taste tests, conducted over 12 months.
The judges were firm on their accolades for the drink, including Peter Simic, Winestate publisher and head of the panel, who said “It was pretty close, but this wine had the highest rating out of all the tastings at the lowest price, it really deserved the trophy."
He continued: “For the amazing value price of $7, plus high blind judging score, this should be everybody’s everyday drinking wine!"
