Seems a bit like an oxymoron but I am starting to look for recommendations for ‘everyday’ premium wines, I would describe this sort of wine as something that costs under £10 a bottle but are almost fine wine in quality. I know that fine wine is usually classed slightly higher up the price bracket but there seems to be a gap between the under £7 mark and the £7-10 in terms of a category.
An example that springs to mind (although slightly over the £10 budget is the Thymiopoulos Greek wine which I would recommend to anyone.
The wine is not that expensive but does punch well above its price point in terms of interesting flavours and complexity.
In terms of the whites I know there are still some great Chilean wines in this price bracket as well, plus some great Portuguese offerings.
Looking to pull together a mixed case of some of these wines to put in the rack at home.
Basically looking for a wine that you pick up off the rack and think: “Yeah that would be nice”, rather than picking it off the rack and think: “Hmm I will save that for special occasion”. Eg a wine that you look forward to but don’t worry about how much it costs if that makes sense.
Damn right it is, @Leah! Off the top of my head I can’t think of another wine that is delicious from the word go, yet goes on getting better, probably for decades now it’s under screwcap. Once it comes back in stock, just buy it.
