Oh This? ...Its Just Wine Aged With a 4.5 Billion-Year-Old Meteorite.

I would be the first to admit that I am not an expert in wine... and would make a lousy sommelier, BUT I would be the first in line to try this Cabernet Sauvignon that is aged with a  4.5 Billion-Year-Old meteorite...!! more about it below: 

The Cabernet is from the Ian Hutchinson's vineyard in Chile. The meteorite is approximately 3-inches long and originated from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. After crashing into Earth 6,000 years ago and recently discovered, this space rock sits in a wooden Cabernet barrel for 12 months at a time... Hutchinson claims that the meteorite gives the wine a 'livelier taste'... although curious to try it, not sure if my taste buds are sophisticated enough to even tell the difference. I guess I'll stick with normal 'boring' wine from Earth that I'm used to...

The wine is cleverly called Meteorito, about 10,000 liters have been produced so far and the price has not been publicly disclosed yet... (I'm guessing it won't be cheap)
