Choosing Between Cheap Wine vs Expensive Wine

Indulging in fine wine can be a heavenly experience, but choosing the right one is vital. To recognize the cream of the crop, you must pay attention to the balance, complexity, and finish.

These elements can sway your taste buds and shape your satisfaction. So take the time to examine these traits and elevate your wine journey to new heights.


Buying a 'better' bottle should not have overpowering elements such as intense tartness or an unpleasant alcohol burn. On the contrary, the ideal outcome is for all its components—fruit flavours, texture (tannin), alcohol content and acidity (tartness)—to be balanced to harmonize harmoniously.

On the other hand, budget-friendly wines can often be off balance in one or more areas, leaving a sour taste lingering on your tongue and an unpleasant feeling that it could have been better.


When selecting a more expensive bottle of wine, look for complexity - multiple and nuanced flavours in every sip. Often wines of higher quality provide even more unique notes to savour with each glass.

In comparison, a high-end Cabernet Sauvignon has an array of sophisticated flavours such as blackcurrant, cedar wood, spices and tobacco blended with earthy undertones and mint leaves. On the other hand, lower-quality versions are far more one-dimensional - barely any different from having Ribena spiked with alcohol!

No complexity here, just simple sugariness followed by an intense burning sensation.


Delighting in a superior wine is an art form that extends far beyond the initial sip. The lingering aftertaste leaves a lasting impression and enhances the overall experience.

Whether it's a euphoric delight or a lacklustre finish, the aftertaste is the final brushstroke on the canvas of wine tasting. A genuinely exceptional vintage will treat your taste buds to a complex and satisfying finale that stays with you long after you've put down your glass. 

But beware of bargain bottles that offer nothing more than a quick, forgettable finish. Their harsh and acidic notes fizzle out before you can fully appreciate them.

To truly savour the moment, seek a wine with a lasting finish that will leave a lasting impression on your palate.
