Well that is really in the upper echelon of normal wine selection.People asked about my budget - I would say absolute max = R180/bottle.
^^^^^^Well that is really in the upper echelon of normal wine selection.
Even at a R100 a bottle you won’t find crap so you can buy just about anything that you like the label of.
I wouldn’t spend R180 a bottle for a function, most people won’t appreciate the wine for what it is and just gargle it down because it’s free.
Just came here to say La Motte. Cant remember what type it was (possibly Merlot), but damn had a 2014 the other day and it was very nice.What is your budget roughly (per bottle)
Warwick has some good Reds as does Eagle's Nest (their Shiraz is one of the best but its rather pricey)
Also check out Tera Del Capo Sangiovese (R90/bottle), La Motte Merlot (R100/bottle), Simonsig Cape blend (R55/bottle)
Some of the Odd Bins are good, sometimes very good, but not all of them. Not sure if it's worth the gamble in this situation.Yeah, no. It's worth R50. Been buying it for a while. It's good, not crazy good.
Odd Bins are at best OK. Sometimes you get something nice, but for me knowing there is no label behind it makes it less enjoyable. I drink wine almost every day (red) and even though the Odd Bins are reasonably priced, I would rather buy a brand more or less the same price that I enjoy. Since the beginning of the year though wine prices have increased significantly. You dont really get cheap wines anymore. Anything semi decent is R60+.Some of the Odd Bins are good, sometimes very good, but not all of them. Not sure if it's worth the gamble in this situation.
Speaking of Checkers I've picked up numerous wines from the Bordeaux region over the past few weeks from there that have been excellent and very reasonably priced.
Nice app, unfortunately it gets 50% of the items wrong. I scanned two wines from Robertson. It told me the second was a Shiraz from Australia.
