Four experts, from London’s Bedales Wines, took a blind taste test trying an inexpensive Asda Malbec against another Malbec three times its price - and the Asda bargain won hands down!
The experts carefully examined and swilled a glass of Asda’s La Moneda Malbec before then trying the prestigious Luigi Bosca Malbec, a wine that currently costs £17.99.
Three out of four experts preferred the Asda wine, citing reasons such as: “It is more complex” and “A bit more fruit driven”, then guessing that the price averaged around £14.
And the reactions when they found out? "Where's it from? Get me down to Asda, that's definitely a bargain"
