In Hong Kong (with no income) I’ve been drinking some cheap wines, usually in the USD$5.00 range. Though they are acceptable and enjoyable on the most part, there are sometimes flaws (such as weird aftertastes). The other night, I decided to try a slightly pricier wine, a bottle of Terra Vega Gran Reserva 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. For HKD$89.00, I was completely happy with this wine and its ability to enhance my New York steak. 😉
I would like to emphasize that as with whiskies, price isn’t always a good indicator of quality. There’s no guarantee that a pricier wine is better (whatever “better” means), and of course most people can’t even tell the difference between a $100 bottle of wine vs. a $10 one. At the end of the day, drink what is good to you and ignore all the noise that doesn’t really matter. Salud!
