This cheap wine makes me laugh on many levels, for many reasons:
1. I laugh because a SINGLE can of it has been in my refrigerator for 2 years.
2. I laugh because it comes in a can. Now, I’m all about alternative enclosures, but this just made me laugh.
3. I laugh because their website barely mentions the wine, and just describes the can.
4. I laugh because it is named simply “Aussie Wine”.
But, I’m laughing, not pouring it down the drain with a pissed-off look on my face…
For having a ridiculous name, and having ridiculous packaging, this cheap wine wasn’t all that bad.
The can was 250ml and came in a 4 pack. I can’t remember exactly what I paid, but I know it wasn’t more than 10 dollars for the four-pack. The label says the wine is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz, made in South Eastern Australia.
I tasted plum, cherry, and ethanol. It had a nice finish. I also had it chilled. I distinctly remember having a can of this stuff several years ago at room temperature, and I couldn’t even drink it. I think this wine was meant to be thrown into the ice cooler, brought camping, and slammed. I envision something like this working out well for this wine:
Ok. I’m off to go collect my deposit!
Rating: 6.5 (.5 for the pure novelty of canned wine)
Price: Less than $10
Enjoyed with: A good laugh at the the fact that I was drinking wine from a can.
