Wine in a Can

Ever see a wine packaged in a can? I somehow came across such thing when in a cabin of one of my crew. At first glance, it looks like a carton of beer. On closer inspection, I got the shock of my life. It's a wine in a can! It has a tagline of "Wine in a can. The perfect size"

It is Barokes Bridge brand wine. The can size is 250ml with 13% alcohol content. It's Australian made with minimal additives and preservative. Note that it mentioned minimal and not "No preservative and additives". I never get what it is meant by "220 added". Hope someone can enlighten me regarding this issue.

The cans have 2 colour. Green and gold. I not sure whether there is a difference between those two. From the ingredients, it doesn't look like there is any difference. Maybe one is a red and the other is a white wine.

Here are the side views of the can, highlighting the manufacturer's address. Apparently you get 5 cents refund when you recycle this can in the US. Good incentive.
This is the base of the carton packaging. Basically repeating all the information available at the can and the front carton packaging.

I never got the chance to taste it as the wine is not mine. But here is my predict, wine in a can should be inferior in term of taste than those in the bottle. But still the compact packaging in the can means the wine can be enjoyed anytime at a moderate volume without getting drunk.
