Wine Quickie: Archer Roose's White & Red Spritz


Spritz is a line of low-alcohol, gluten free (a-duh), vegan, organic, canned sparkling wines by Archer Roose. Say that three times fast. The white, which I actually like, is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Malvasia. It's light and crisp and refreshing with flavors of citrus and melon. It's just a non-serious thirst quencher. The red is a Lambrusco with flavors of cherries, blackberries and a chalky minerality. I really didn't like it at all when I first tried it chilled, but throwing some ice in there and stirring it up did make it drinkable. The red isn't for everybody, but I'll pound back one of those whites any day.
