This $7 bottle of wine was just named the best in Australia!

Well, this is a sweet surprise…

A cheap $7 bottle of wine from Coles has been crowned the best in Australia, so our Christmas day drop has just been sorted!

The Story Bay Semillion Sauvignon Blanc took out the best wine under $20 at the Winestate Wine of the Year Awards in Adelaide, beating 2500 other wines for the coveted title.


It took 12 months of blind tastings for the panel of judges to make their decision, with the expert tasters describing the bottle of plonk as having “vibrant tropical fruit aromas including passionfruit, with notes of lime and blossom, hints of herbal tea and fresh cut grass, and a zesty and refreshing acid backbone that provides structure and length.”

The tasty and very cheap drop from WA’s Margaret River is available exclusively at Coles supermarkets’ liquor outlets including Liquorland, Vintage Cellars, First Choice Liquor and First Choice Liquor Market.

Happy sipping!
