Do you know what’s better than a glass of nice wine? A glass of cheap, nice wine and Dan Murphy’s has just revealed their best wines under $20.

Dan Murphy’s has announced their Decoded Wine Awards for 2021 of their best Australian and New Zealand wines. There’s a wine for everyone as they cover a selection from a lighter white to a fuller red in two categories – under $20 and over $20 and a selection of best value wines.

The standout wine is the $7 Minchinbury Pinot Noir. Dan Murphy’s expert Wine Panel said, “no it’s not the greatest pinot on the planet but it does boast authentic light and breezy, fresh plummy fruit.”


This is the second year of the Awards with the liquor giant saying “Decoded is all about how people really enjoy wine. We’ve stripped back the confusing tasting notes and instead focused on why we loved these wines (and why you’ll love them too).”

Thank you Dan’s, you really know the way to our hearts. Check out the full list of wines below.
