Here are our top nine picks, all are highly rated and recommended by What Wines When.

Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc ($16.95, reduced from $19.95).

New Zealand: Marlborough

Iconic wine which stands the test of time, this is bright, crisp and refreshing with tropical fruit and citrus flavours. Appears regularly on the Vivino Best Under $20 lists. Serve as an aperitif or with appetizers al fresco.

ABV 13.5%, 3 g/L residual sugar.

Enzo Vincenzo Valpolicella Ripasso ($13.30, reduced from $16.30).

Italy: Veneto

Great price for this medium bodied, rich wine with dark fruit flavours and a long smooth finish with a hint of sweetness. Big enough to serve with barbecued red meats.

ABV 13.5%, 9 g/L residual sugar.

Cavit Collection Moscato Pavia ($11.45, reduced from $13.45).

Italy: Alto-Adige

Terrific value for this popular low alcohol, sweet and fruity offering with a touch of fizz. Peach apricot and honey flavours in this sweet wine make it a good match for Thai yellow curry dishes.

ABV 7.0%, 91 g/L residual sugar.

Cavaliere D’Oro Gabbiano Chianti ($11.95, reduced from $13.95).

Italy: Tuscany

Inexpensive everyday Chianti, purple colour with cherry, strawberry and red fruit tastes on the palate along with earthy notes. Let it breathe and it becomes noticeably smoother to consume with a vegetarian pizza.

ABV 12.5%, 5 g/L residual sugar.

Casal Garcia Vinho Verde ($8.95, reduced from $9.95).


Incredible price for this perennial favourite featuring citrus, pear, lemon and lime flavours with slight effervescence. Crisp, refreshing and slightly off dry, serve it with grilled shellfish.

ABV 10.0%, residual sugar 11 g/L.

Carnivor Zinfandel [ch1] ($14.95, reduced from $17.95).

United States: California

Big and bold, intense black fruit flavours plus oak, vanilla and spice in a classic California Zinfandel style with a smooth finish. Perfect with grilled red meats.

ABV 15.0%, 8 g/L residual sugar.

Strewn Two Vines Riesling Gewurtztraminer ($12.95, reduced from $13.95).

Canada: Niagara

Bright straw colour with floral aromas lead to tropical fruit and citrus tastes in this easy drinking, off dry wine with a pleasant finish. Pairs nicely with spicy Asian dishes.

ABV 12.0%, 20 g/L residual sugar.

19 Crimes The Uprising Red Wine ($16.95, reduced from $18.95).

Australia: South Australia

A big red blend aged in rum barrels which adds oak and vanilla to the predominant red fruit tastes. This is a big, bold offering with a touch of sweetness which calls for pairing with burgers.

ABV 15.0%, 14 g/L residual sugar.

La Vieille Ferme Rose Ventoux ($10.95, reduced from $12.45).

France: Rhone

Superb value to welcome summer with this well rated dry, light bodied rose which delivers flavours of citrus and raspberry. Serve as an easy sipper or with a light lunch salad.

ABV 13.0%, 2 g/L residual sugar.

NB Both the Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc and La Vieille Ferme Rose wines are suitable for low carb/low sugar diets.
