*runs to the shop to buy them*
240 international wine experts have blind taste tested around 16,000 bottles of wine from around the world and found the La Moneda Reserva Malbec 2015 from Asda as the ‘ultimate crowd pleaser’, at just £4.37 we can see why it pleased the crowds but to be fair the wine won the Chilean red category, before taking the overall crown for quality and value for money.
Chairman of DWWA Steven Spurrier said:
Our sole purpose is to recognise and reward quality, this is what consumers all over the world are interested in. We only award medals to wines in which consumers can have the utmost confidence.
The wine has sold out online but they should (in theory) still be available in stores, subject to stock levels.
The wine was described as tasting like ‘Freshly crushed black fruit, creamy vanilla yoghurt and pepper spice,’ and won praise for its ‘succulent juicy berries on the palate.’
