Straits Wine: Great valued wines, friendly on your wallet and taste buds!
The recent GST hike has left us feeling a little gloomier and our wallets emptier. We feel you! We know everyone has been looking for ways to cut down on their budget and get their money's worth. We have good news for you - Straits Wine has a selection of good wines at great value. Sit back and sip on our delightful selections without worrying about burning a hole in your pocket!
New Regions, Exceptional Value
One way to beat the price hike is by exploring wines from regions renowned for producing excellent value that you might have yet to try. From Argentina's Malbecs to Portugal's Vinho Verde, several wine regions offer exceptional quality at pocket-friendly prices. By exploring lesser-known grapes and regions, you can discover hidden gems that deliver on both taste and affordability. For example, our Weingut Weninger Kekfrankos Balf and Wabi-Sabi are both biodynamic wines. They can be found in the “Bright and juicy”, and “Elegant and savoury” style categories respectively. Weingut Weninger Kekfrankos Balf has a blackberry aroma and a structured palate showcasing black plum and spices.
On the other hand, Wabi-Sabi Riverside "R" NV is perfect for those who prefer bright berries, hints of floral, lively acidity, and a fresh finish. And the best part is, all of these incredible selections are below S$60! These selections will save you the trouble (and money) when planning your next great party!
Emphasising Quality Price-to-Value Ratio
When we want to know the true quality of the wine, price should not be the only deciding factor. Wines that have a superb price-to-value ratio also mean that you are getting the best out of what you are spending to get the wine. Look for wines with good reviews and high ratings from trusted experts! For example, our Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Terrior Valle De Uco 2020 and our Alegre Valganon Rioja Blanco 2021 have received ratings of 93 and 92 out of 100 respectively by Robert Parker - a trusted individual in the wine industry for over 30 years. Both wines are just below S$60 which makes their price-to-value ratio high - this means you get the best wines for the best value.
