If you’re located in Norway, check out these wines that are currently available at Vinmonopolet. These days it can be difficult to find a good quality wine under 300kr, for various reasons, but here are some worth mentioning.
Kruger-Rumpf Schiefer Trocken 168kr
The wines from Kruger-Rumpf are growing on me, and although this was a little “green” on the nose, I quite enjoyed it. As we wine people say: “It was good in the mouth.” Which means we like it. Riesling, known for its acidity, didn’t disappoint in this wine. Lots of citrus and yellow stone fruit flavors.
Roche De Bellene Bourgogne Chardonnay 190kr
If you’re looking for a white burgundy and don’t want to break the bank, try this one.
Domaine de Bellene Saint-Romain Vieilles Vignes 310kr
(Yes, I know its not under 300, but I think its still worth mentioning).
Those extra 10kr are well worth it, in my opinion.
Azelia Barbera 289kr
Recently back on the market in Norway, this Barbera will definately become a staple at my house. You know when you’re drinking a wine, and you just can’t seem to put the glass down? That’s exactly what happened with Azelia’s Barbera. Acidity on point, lots of fruit, long finish – all good things when reviewing a wine.
Burlotto Barbera 2018 285kr
The 2018 Barbera from Burlotto recently arrived in Norway and it’s good. High in acidity, but still balanced, the fruit sort of explodes in your mouth and puts a smile on your face.
Luigi Pira Dolcetto 199kr
Currently one of the best buys at Vinmonopolet. Dolcetto’s are few and far between in Norway, but this one made it in and it’s a good one.
Trediberri Langhe Nebbiolo 189kr
Never get tired of mentioning this wine. As we say in Norway, “Løp å kjøp”!
