This post is not only about how to find a bargain on well known, award winning premium red wines, but is intended to give you tips on where and what to look for when evaluating an offer on a certain case of wine. Besides cleanskins, there are many reasonably priced good reds you can buy from various stores online for no more than $10 a bottle, but how would you know if they are any good?
Based on a survey which I came across, after the grape variety, the second most important factor which people consider when purchasing wine is the price. However, costs are never included in the points wine ratings refer to, so to determine a wine’s QPR (quality price ratio) you’ll have to rely on pure and basic knowledge of vintages, regions, and reviews of other wine-lovers. In Australia alone, there are hundreds of less recognised wineries out there but just because they’re relatively unknown shouldn’t be an indicator that the wines which they produce are of inferior quality.
