Aldi’s £6.99 shiraz wins gold at wine awards
We all love a boozy bargain.
If you’ve ever thought a decent wine means taking out a loan, you’re about to be proven wrong.
Wine lovers need not hold on to their purse strings because a bottle from Aldi has been given a top accolade.
Aldi’s One Road Shiraz was recently crowned gold in the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge. The event has been described as the most prestigious single class wine competition so it’s no mean feat.
An exclusive contest, only 2,000 wines are accepted into the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge.
Aldi’s wine fought off stiff competition from a $250 (£190) 2014 bottle from Mount Pleasant Wines and a $200 (£152) 2012 bottle from Wolf Bass Wines.
Oh, and Aldi’s shiraz is only £6.99, proving that you don’t have to fork out for a pricey bottle.
What does the wine taste like? ‘The aromas of plum and spice continue on the palate, with ripe and powdery tannins to finish,’ the description reads. Sounds fancy.
And this wasn’t the first time the wine has been given a top accolade either – it received Best Value Shiraz of the Year award at the 2017 Melbourne International Wine Competition.
Sadly, the wine is only available in Australia, so you can’t get your hands on this exact prize-winning bottle.
But if you want to buy an ugly Christmas jumper with a stocking for your wine? Your search is over.
