Mixed cases: a great way to try new wines and save a bundle
If you’re getting a bit bored with the same wine, why not buy a mixed case? Mixed cases are an excellent way to try new wines and many retailers heavily discount the total price.
A few weeks ago I bought a mixed case of six Chardonnay bottles from VinoMofo for $99, down from $161. It’s the first time I’ve bought a mixed case where all the wines were unfamiliar to me. This is a wonderful way to taste the range of chardonnays available in Australia – the differences in flavour and style between each bottle was extraordinary. Each chardonnay was delicious and I plan to buy the same pack again.
Another mixed case worth trying is the 2016 Wines of the Year from WineStar for $266, down from $369. This pack contains a dozen wines: three each of WineStar’s red of the year, white of the year, bargain of the year and the overall wine of the year. All wines in this pack are rated 96 points by James Halliday. Free delivery.
Finally, for fans of Barossa reds, take a look at this case of a dozen premium Barossa Valley Shiraz from Wine Selectors for $288, down from $396.90.
