Many people shy away from the idea of cheap wine because there is the fear that the taste will bring tears to their eyes – and not the good kind. However, there is hope with various wines within a cheap price range that are enjoyable and refreshing.
When you are planning on buying a few bottles, you will need to think about proper storage. You could use one of the wine and beverage fridges that are on offer. The best wine fridge will be the one that suits your needs. Perhaps it is built into a cabinet or is a wine fridge small sized to fit into that little nook you have.
When you find a wine you enjoy, you can expand your collection by looking for similar grape varieties and flavours.
Finding wines from lesser-known regions and with lesser-known grape varieties or an appellation of grapes will help bring down the costs. This might mean that instead of using the label for information, you may have to ask your local salesperson for advice. They might advise you to look at some of the following wines depending on whether you prefer red or white wine.
Toro Loco Reserva 2015
This red wine blend combines a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Garnacha. It uses a grape blend between the tempranillo and bobal grapes, which provides a soft finish after a full-bodied taste. This blend pairs with almost any food.
Gers 2018 France
A floral white wine with grapefruit and green apple flavours will refresh your palate and help you unwind after a long day. With a price of usually under £5, this is a bargain for the quality of taste you will be getting.
Les Houts de Saint Martin Saint Chinian 2018 France
This red wine blend offers mulberries and chestnuts to its drinkers. The layered flavours are remnant of forests and luxurious relaxation. If you are looking at a meal with red meat, then this is certainly a good option to consider.
ASDA Extra Special Prosecco Rosè Brut
This dry rosè is crisp and light, giving the drinker a refreshing breath of peaches, rose, strawberries, and lemon sorbet. A sparkling wine pairs well with most foods as the bubbles add a whole new experience.
The Society’s Sicilian Organic White
The organically grown grapes create a delicious sulfite-free wine with peach and citrus flavours combined to give you a delectably fresh drink. Pair this white wine with seafood or poultry to enhance both food and wine.
Specially Selected Crèmant du Jura
A Crèmant du Jura is made in the same fashion as the traditional champagne but in a different region. This blend is made with a Chardonnay with apple, pear, and citrus flavours. A great alternative to champagne with all of the great flavour.
Finding wines that won’t break the bank or your tastebuds is a possibility. Carefully selecting and storing your wines will ensure that each bottle gives you that extra special taste experience. This will be worth your time and experimentation.
