Ferdinand Wines Albarino in a can is produced by Evan Frazier, whose day jobs sees him working as assistant winemaker at the infamous Kongsgaard cellar. He was determined to produce wines from Spanish varieties only, and this Albarino is an absolute joy!!
These cans may seem unorthodox and a bit on the expensive side, but they have all kinds of benefits, most importantly for us, being the smallest carbon footprint. Perfect for picnics, beating the sustainability glass-free factor or for a cheeky can of wine on your way home. They’re also airtight, light and easy to recycle.
The Ferdinand Wines Albarino is attractively fragrant; a savoury and floral wine with orange peel and lime zest, lemongrass, quince and grapefruit aromas and flavours. Lees ageing in neutral oak gives the wine finesse, sophistication, and a hint of nuttiness – a pleasing complement to the variety’s balance of natural acidity, slight bitterness, and salty finish. Puts many a Spanish Albarino to shame!
“I practice simple, traditional winemaking. The wines are not inoculated, acidified, nutrified, watered back, and where possible bottled without filtration. I measure my success as a winemaker by wines that are delicious, enjoyable at the table, and affordable to drink. The project remains modest but continues to grow. In the coming years, I hope to make more wines as I continue to learn but seek to do so organically and independently. I produce only as much as I can make with my own hands.” Evan Frazier
These come in a pack of 4x375ml (the equivalent of 2 bottles)
