De Bortoli's La Bossa really is a boss level bargain. 

From a label named after De Bortoli matriarch Giussepina De Bortoli, this super easy drinking Shiraz has beautiful peppery notes to the plum fruit, the style light and very fun at a crazy price!

How's it taste?

Bold, spiced fruits with rounded oak tones lift out of the glass. The palate is open-knit and generous with bright fruits and plenty of appeal. Great value.

A really great wine deal must must be accompanied by great value. There is nothing better than getting an incredible bottle of wine for a fraction of what similar quality wines sell for. My recommendations gives you the very best "Value for money" wines at different pricepoints.
