10 Award-Winning Wines Under $20 To Cop If You Have Champers Taste On A Goon Budget


A bottle of reasonably-priced (yet delicious) vino is one of life’s simplest pleasures. However, if you’re not exactly a ~sommelier~, it can be a bit tricky to know what to pick out at the bottle-o.

If you don’t have a trip to the Barossa Valley booked in just yet, but you’re keen to expand your palette (on a budget, of course), then look no further than Dan Murphy’s Decoded Wine Awards. They’ve basically handpicked the best wines crafted across Australia and New Zealand, and the best part? A bunch of them are under $20. Yep, that’s right, you can buy award-winning chardonnay for under 20 bucks, which is truly a steal.

Here’s ten you could suss out (from light and fruity whites to full-bodied shiraz’) if you have an upcoming drinks-and-goss night with the girlies:

It’s also worth noting that some of these prices are exclusive to Dan Murphy’s members, too. You can also check out the entire list of winners from the awards here if you’re looking to dive into the world of vino a little further.
