Originating from French & Spanish vineyards there’s now a new wine in town. Improved by “food tech” Gïk has developed a sweeter and easier to drink wine. God help us all, wine doesn’t need to be any easier to drink than it already is.
Gïk is produced through a pigmentation process. Firstly a base is created from a mixture of red and white grapes, which is then added to two organic pigments; indigo and anthocyanin – which comes from the skin of the grapes used to make wine.
The wine took two years to develop in collaboration University of the Basque Country, and the wineries are located mainly in La Rioja, Zaragoza and Courthèzon.
Gïk has an alcohol rate of 11.5 degrees, and it’s overall marketing scheme seems to revolve entirely around not being part of the establishment. Sort of as if they’re marketing wine toward the teen alcopop crowd.
Weird, still want to give it a taste though!
