Happiness as Anarchy #133: $4 wine

Buying wine is always a tricky exercise, especially when in a new country. Last night I had a very ordinary bucket of wine with my dinner (I only drank half of it) which did not make me happy. Today’s mission: acquire a decent bottle of wine. This I did, but twas with trepidation that I opened, poured and tasted it, not sure if I had just bought nasty, cheap wine in the equivalent of Aldi. Turns out that my $4 was well spent – not the best wine I’ve ever had, but quite drinkable and extremely good value. Notes of chocolate and quite fruity, but a whisker too much acid for my taste. Imagine what will happen when I double my budget for the next bottle?
