It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to stock your cellar with red wines to impress your guests at summer barbecues this summer.
An Asda red wine priced at £4.37 has been named the best in the world in a blind tasting test with a panel of 240 experts at the world’s largest and most influential wine competition.
La Moneda Reserva Malbec from Central Valley in Chile (2015) was awarded best in show in the best single-varietal red under £15 at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards, from 16,000 other entries.
It was described as having «an excellent freshness» and a finish that was «full of energy». Judges praised the wine for flavours of «freshly crushed black fruit, creamy vanilla yoghurt and pepper spice» and noted its good value.
Ed Betts, wine buying manager at Asda, said they were expecting a run on the shelves for La Moneda Reserva Malbec with summer approaching.
«At just £5.75, the exclusive La Moneda Reserva Malbec is the perfect example of how we’re able to offer shoppers exceptional quality at low prices. The La Moneda Reserva Malbec is also currently on rollback at £4.37, and as the perfect match to barbecued meats, we’re expecting high demand in the coming weeks,» Betts said.
