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.
