Old Vine Garnacha No. 5 Red Wine

250ml can

14.5% ABV

Produced by El Escoses Volante (TheFlyingScotsman!) for Canned Wine Co. Master of Wine, Norrel Robertson, has created a beautifully balanced, smooth and silky wine that highlights the very best of Spanish Garnacha. Made from grapes picked from old vines at altitude in the Aragon region of Spain, the juice has subsequently been aged for four years and developed into a wine that is truly special.

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. 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.

About Canned Wine Co.

Lisa and Simon were inspired to launch Canned Wine Co. in the spring of 2019. Passionate about great food and drink they both found great wine was difficult to find, opaque to understand and too expensive!

So 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. 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. The 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.
