Canned Wine Company
Lisa and Simon were inspired to launch Canned Wine Co. in the spring of 2019. After many evenings of wanting to enjoy a glass of wine with dinner but not wanting to open a bottle, particularly not an expensive one, Simon and Lisa decided there must be a better way! As a couple that enjoys an active lifestyle, a smaller amount of something great always appealed much more than a lot of something average. A few months passed, but after attending a festival in Summer 2019 and finding the wine option was poured from a heavy glass bottle into a single use plastic cup, enough was enough. Simon and Lisa, spent the best part of 2019 learning about wine and searching for the very best wines for canning. At Canned Wine Co. they only work with smaller independent wineries to source the very best wines they can. Each wine is a limited run by nature, all single vintage and single variety. Their wines are all about discovery and curiosity. You won’t find famous grape varieties or the usual suspects, instead they bring you the best of the unknown.
Pristine in colour, the Old Vine Garnacha immediately looks deep and attractive. Aromas of chocolate-coated cherries and cassis with some vanilla spice. The warming palate has a good tang of racy acidity with some mineral, salty hints. Fruit is all black cherry and bright strawberry. Tannins are smooth with a lovely touch of cherry stone almond on the finish. Grippy dark cocoa rounds it all out.
Best Served Chilled.
Harvested at night and cool fermented, helping to define its attractive fruit character.
