A $7 Bottle Of Aldi Wine Just Won Gold At An Aussie Wine Competition
When you're looking through a bottlo, it can be hard to find a good wine that you've never tasted.
Sometimes you'll base your decision on price, the look of the label, where it's from or myriad of other factors that will help you make up your mind.
The price factor though will usually turn people away from picking cheaper wines because it's thought to be lesser in quality.
Well, a $7 bottle of Shiraz from Aldi Australia has just won a bloody International Gold Award at one of the country's biggest wine festivals.
The supermarket's One Road Goulburn & King Valley Cabernet Merlot 2018 walked away with the stellar price at the Sydney International Wine Competition 2020.
But it wasn't the only win for Aldi on the day.
Aldi Australia was also awarded a Blue Gold for its A.C Byrne & Co Margaret River Cabernet Merlot 2018, which is still under $10. The Veuve Monsigny Brut Champagne, which sells for a little less than $22, was also included in the top 100 wines of the competition.
Not bad for a bottle of sparkling plonk that costs you less than most wines.
So the next time you're walking through the shopping aisle and spot something on the cheaper side, don't automatically think it's rank.
