Artero Tempranillo 2014 $14 ★★★★½

How crazy is it that a wine this cheap can scoop a gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards AND a gold medal at the NZ International Wine Awards.  But it is absolutely deserving. This Spanish stunner has lovely, comforting aromas of blueberry, cherry and medicinal notes.  Juicy and fleshy in the mouth, it boasts a squeak of dusty tannins over the top of some generous fruit flavours.  Definitely the man from La Mancha if you’re looking for something cheap and seriously cheerful.
