Top 10 weird wine ingredients

28th February, 2013 by Andy Young

5. Meteorite

MeteoritoA Chilean wine has been created using a meteorite formed during the birth of the solar system. The Cabernet Sauvignon called Meteorito has been developed by Ian Hutcheon, an Englishman working in Chile.

The meteorite, which is believed to have crashed into the Atacama Desert in northern Chile around 6,000 years ago, is submerged in the wine during the fermentation process.

Hutcheon believes the meteorite gives the wine a “livelier taste”.
