Here are 27 wines that are priced between $14 and $20.

If you're looking for bang for your buck, these 27 wines deliver. Priced between $14 and $20, and rated 'outstanding', 'highly recommended' or 'recommended' by the Tasting Team, we've put together a mix of red, white and rosé wines that won't cost more than a lobster.

For the white wine drinkers, we've got the reliable riesling, pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc (including SB and semillon blends), and, of course, chardonnay. For the year-round red wine fanatics, you're looking at pinot noir – note the $20 Hoddles Creek pinot that Philip Rich rated 95 points – there's tempranillo, cabernet (and blends), malbec, merlot, and we can't forget the examples of shiraz from Vasse Felix, 3 Rings and Mr Mick.

Don't forget the Halliday Virtual Cellar allows you to track drinking windows; sort wine by the 'drink by' date to make sure you don't miss peak drinking windows.
