Giesen 0% New Zealand Riesling (NV)

Fancy a white wine with no alcohol? For ‘sober curious’ consumers, this recently released, non-vintage bottling (2.5*) contains alcohol-removed riesling wine and grape juice. Grown in Marlborough and Waipara, North Canterbury, it’s not highly scented, but refreshing, with lemony, appley flavours, and the lightness and attractive interplay of sweetness and acidity typical of many Rieslings.
