When it comes to wine, it usually goes that the higher the price, the better the taste. This may not hold true according to a recently published article on Inc., which reveals that one of the newly named best wines in the world rings in at about—wait for it—$6. That's good news for those of us who can likely be found looking for more affordable twist-off options. 

Before you pop bottles, here's what you need to know about the rather cheap variety that is apparently rich in taste. After enduring a taste test from 240 global wine experts, the La Moneda Reserva Malbec came out on top as winner of Platinum Best in Show at the crazy-prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards. That's how you know it's good. So what does one of the world's best wines taste like? As described by the judges, the Malbec's tasting notes resemble "freshly crushed black fruit, creamy vanilla yogurt, and pepper spice." Sounds like a winner. Aside from the shockingly low price tag, the other surprising detail is where you can buy this award-winning wine, which is the Walmart-owned Asda supermarket. Stock up while you can, as supplies are not expected to last long. 

Cheers.

Are you shocked a $6 wine could win this award? If you're drinking one of the best wines in the world, you'll need a chic glass like this equally affordable set from Crate & Barrel.
