Wine: Canned rosés
I must admit it: Canned wine “has come some distance from its terrifying origins,” said Amy Glynn in PasteMagazine.com. The winemakers highlighted below prove that good wine and aluminum can mix, and “almost across the board,” the rosés are the best the brands currently offer. Why try them? It’s summer, and they’re “supremely” portable.
Amble + Chase ($20 for four 250 ml cans). Sourced from sustainable growers in Provence, this complex blend features a floral nose and “salinity-forward finish.”
Free Public ($13 for three 250 ml cans). “Beautiful on the outside,” Free Public’s cans are filled with delicious red, white, or pink wines blended by Oregon’s Ron Penner-Ash. His “ultracrisp and quite juicy” rosé is the standout.
Tangent ($7 per 375 ml can). I love Tangent’s Sauvignon Blanc, but the rosé is “an exotic beauty, too”—an “extremely tasty” wine that weds “racy” acidity with peach, melon, and strawberry. ■
