A bottle of $ 14.90 bottle sold at Dan Murphy’s has been named as one of the best bargain wines in Australia.

The inaugural Decoded Wine Awards from Dan Murphy have announced the winners for the best value for money light and full red and white wines, as well as rosé, sparkling and fortified varieties on Wednesday.

A panel of 12 expert judges spent three days tasting more than 1000 wines to select the 73 finalists.

The judges said the Grenache was juicy, fresh and lively and ready to drink.

“Although pinot is still the leading lightweight red variety in the bracket of more than $ 20, if you want to spend less, you’ll get great quality with grenache,” said Dan Murphy’s head of fine wine and prize judge Andrew Shedden.

The very first Decoded Wine Award winners from Dan Murphy were named this week after more than 1000 wines were tested by 12 expert judges
