MZ BARRIK comes in a completely new type of packaging for Sweden – a small gold-clad wine barrel. The inspiration for the name as well as the design comes from “barrique”, the French word for a smaller type of oak barrel of 225 litres used for aging quality wines. This barrel is a revolutionary and innovative type of packaging made from recycled metal. Once the wine is finished, the tastefully stylish barrel can be used as a wine cooler or a flower pot, for example. If you don’t want to keep it, you can of course dispose of it as usual at your local recycling station.
This wine is made exclusively from the Garnacha Tinta grape, which is one of the most widely grown grapes in the world. However, where the grapes are grown affects the character of the wine. Spanish Garnacha wines acquire a slightly fiery, very intense and complex character, distinct tannins and a lingering finish. Last but not least, the wine has an unusually low sugar content of only 0.82 grams of residual sugar per litre!
