If you enjoy wines with plenty of grunt you'll love this McLaren Vale offering, which is dark, big, rich and opulent. You'll find blackberry, plum and spice characters, dollops of bold oak and plenty of mouthfeel. Pair it with steak and kidney pie. $25.

There are not many bottles of budget red that enthuse me, but two of us drank a bottle of this and thoroughly enjoyed it. Juicy, slightly spicy and medium bodied, it just oozes drinkability. Great with steaks, pizzas or pastas and terrific value at $10.

A terrific budget-priced wine for drinking in its youth. There are lovely aromatics and plenty of flavour on the palate, where you'll discover crisp sweet fruit flavours and a zesty finish. Enjoy chilled with spicy Thai dishes or grilled seafood. $16.
