Fancy a red wine with no alcohol? Pitched at ‘sober curious’ consumers, this recently released, non-vintage bottling (2*) is ‘New Zealand’s first 0% red wine’. Based on alcohol-removed Merlot, it also includes unfermented grape juice. Grown in Hawke's Bay, it is deeply coloured, vibrant and fruity, with plenty of berryish, plummy flavour, simple, gently sweet (30 grams/litre of residual sugar), very crisp and juicy.
