Base rockfords shiraz you can afford 🙂messiahMember
This had my toes curling at a tasting… it really is that friggin good.
I ended up buying a few bottles 😳
I’d far rather share a bottle of this with my fab wife than a blow a similar sum of money in the pub.
EDIT – to give as a gift… unless its to give to me I’d find something easier as this took some tracking down 😆Posted 4 years agoBuzzardMember
Depends – is this for a real wine buff or just for someone who would appreciate a really nice bottle of wine?
This is a good compromise. 2nd tier Margaux
alternatively if they someone getting into their wine – what about a wine society membership?Posted 4 years ago
In the end of the day $50 (oz) is a good price for very good wine that comes out around £25 back up north. Would suggest finding a good wine merchant, there are expensive and fantastic wines I love and some that I hate, it’s just not my style. Know who you are buying for, it can be a minefield.
If you like the shiraz end of thingsPosted 4 years ago
To be safe try a very nice red burgundy
For something different try Clos Mogador (priorat). I was told about this a few years back but sadly only bought a few bottles. It’s not become much better known and the price has doubled 🙁 But you can pick up a 2007 for around £40 which would be a lovely present.
The Musar ^ is a good idea. For the budget you might be able to get 2 and box them. Again slightly different and a lively wine. I was bought one for a present recently and really enjoyed it. £20 ish from Majestic.Posted 4 years agocrikeyMember
A bit dear, but bloody ace wine.Posted 4 years agoRichPennyMember
£45 well it’s your money but your not going to get any wine that tastes better just because it’s £45. Pretty much anything around £10 is a safe bet but even less is well achievable for a nice wine.
Not a bad point, of critical importance would be what type of wine your friend likes. You could go for any of the following if that’s the kind of thing that he enjoys. These are wines that I have tried, but not on a regular basis! I would say if you’re spending £45 then research the vintage before you decide what to buy:
Italy: Barbaresco, Barolo or Amarone
France: Grand Cru Chablis, 1er Cru Vosne-Romanee
Germany: Alsace Riesling
Australia: Barossa or Mclaren Vale Shiraz,Hunter Valley Semillon (though you might not find one for £45)
I would choose something a bit different though. A top Sauternes from France or a vintage Australian Tawny Port would be things you’d probably never buy yourself but make excellent presents.Posted 4 years ago
