So, can you tell a cheap wine from a more expensive one?
That's what a customer set out to find out last night.
Being our first Felton Road Friday he was keen to see if the legendary New Zealand Pinot Noir's £3.3 taste-tag would hold up against our much more modest £1.1 Molino Loco Monastrell.
Poles apart it seems; and we agreed.
Aromas, quality of fruit (yes, put side by side you can assign quality to it), length (literally how long the flavours stay with you), benefit of age ('09 vs '14); everything just came together that much more interestingly in the Felton.
Three times as much? Easily. Just goes to show (thankfully), that whether you're tasting our cheapest, or one of our more expensive wines, everything's relative at Project Vino.
