A vintage year, and it's done in five gallon cans

I try not to be a wine snob, but instead i say life is too short to drink bad wine.

However, a recent venture into a wine shop revealed that the bar had lowered when it came to wine packaging.

Wine in cans.

Well i guess it had to happen, after all we are the country who invented the Goon.

Taph and i had to try it, so we bought one can of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. It did not have the famous fresh cut grass, aroma that New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs have. In fact it was a little flat,

Overall we figured it was marketed for those occasions where the place you are going does not allow glass, and you do not want to take a goon.

And who knows, with that marketing plan, we may end up buying a slab of it.

My aversion to wine in cans comes from this old "Arthur Daley E's Alright" song, which has the line "it's a vintage year, and it's done in five gallon cans"
