Anyone tried the Knight Black Horse Dry Red wine?

Recommended Posts

My usual bottle shop didn't have a Castle Creek or Berri Estate 2 litre bottle, so to tide me over I picked up a bottle of Knight Black Horse Dry Red from a 7/11, not realising it's made in Thailand, I guess the price of 299 Baht was a clue. I'll drink it, waste not want not, but I'd never buy it again. It has this strangely sweet aftertaste, how I'd imagine Anti-freeze to taste. Could probably use it in a spag bol rather than pour it down the sink.

Not offen coz many Thais dislike the taste. After i know that i sometimes bring to party, knowing i can drink it all 🤣.

That's fruit wine for you.

Next time go to Big C and get their red Holla wine. I make no claim about it ( fruit wine ) but at 219 a bottle you save 80 baht and it is not too awful as these things go.

Aren't grapes fruit?

Yes, they are, but "fruit wine" isn't wine, it's fruit wine.

If I was handy to Big C or Lotus I would have bought the Berri Estate red, but I'm on the darkside, so have to take what I can get locally, for now.

Yes, but so are tomatoes and cucumbers.

Just seems wrong to have wines diluted with various fruit juices.

But if it says 12% ABV, does it matter fruit, grapes, cat-pee,

What's SANGRIA made of? It's not diluted if it's still 12% ABV

At 149 Baht a litre, you don't expect to get anything better than cat-pee, do you?

Maybe not to you but some people consider the taste to be important and someone expecting fruit wine to be real wine would be disappointed.

And that includes the 100% duty that is applied to Thai produced wines (including fruit wines)!

I don't believe sangria is so strong, if it is simply wine (Garnacha) mixed with OJ and lemonade but sometimes it is fortified with brandy and triple sec. It is more like a punch.... which is how I would describe wine weakened with fruit juices.
