Top Value wines represent great value for money.
A wine is awarded Top Value if it is priced 80% or lower than its Price Benchmark.
A wine's Price Benchmark is the average of the prices of wines with the same blend, rating, country and vintage. For example, we calculate an average price of all 92pt Australian Shiraz from 2008.
To be eligible for a Top Value award, the recommended retail price must be supplied along with the wine sample.
