A popular Italian Chianti at a surprisingly low price
Cavaliere D’Oro Gabbiano Chianti
Price: $11.95 (reduced from $13.95)
Vivino Rating: 3.5
Purple colour, aromas of red cherries and dried herbs.
Cherry, strawberry, red fruit flavours with tobacco and earth notes. A medium body rustic wine with firm acidity and tannins which soften quickly with breathing.
Nothing complicated here, drink it now with pasta or pizza. ABV 12.5%, 5 g/L sugar.
A perennial summer favourite, this offers great value.
Deinhard Green Label Riesling
Price: $9.95, reduced from $11.95)
Vivino Rating: 3.7
Bright straw yellow colour. Aromas of apple, melon and citrus, which continue through to the palate along with pear and tropical fruit tastes. Firm acidity levels bring down the sweetness for a refreshing finish.
Sip on a hot summer day or serve with a typical German cured meat platter. ABV 10.0%, 30 g/L sugar.
Great value for a highly rated Moscato wine
Cavit Collection Moscato Pavia
Price: $11.45 (reduced from $13.45)
Vivino Rating: 4.1
Pale lemon colour with a floral orange nose with dominant peach, apricot, and honey tastes. Frizzante and actually higher alcohol for a Moscato (but still only 11.5%), smooth and not as sweet as many.
Thai yellow tofu curry would be a good match. ABV 11.5%, 16 g/L sugar.
