NEW VINTAGE ALERT! AND NAME CHANGE (fka Moon Juice)! Spicy, fresh carbonic Zin? Yes, please! It’s a little deeper and more structured than the average glou glou, but still super quaffable and sprightly, with a taste of that classic Zin spice without the weight or high alcohol. Alex says: “Two weeks of carbo result in pure glou glou juice. It's our version of a nouveau. Super easy, super crushable. Light enough to take a chill, but still has enough body to drink with your favorite pizza.” We say, put a little chill on your bottle and drink with abandon -- it’ll have you bouncing into outer space.
