Giesen 0% Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Low and zero alcohol product popularity shows no sign of slowing and when powerhouse New Zealand producer Giesen are investing over a million dollars in new “spinning cone” technology that can separate the alcohol from a finished wine, it certainly shows that companies are taking this very seriously indeed.

Giesen, 0% Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, 2020

Giesen 0%

Intense and varietal Sauvignon Blanc aromas: rich passionfruit, pineapple juice and melon slices, dewy rolled grass, straw bale, green asparagus and with a slight blackcurrant leafy edge. The palate has a fleshy front with strong flavour before dropping away (somewhat expectedly) and becoming wan. Acidity zipping with an intense pineapple-like cut. This certainly has more in common with full alcohol wines than some low/zero wines and doesn’t resort to simply being grape juice.

RRP: $16.99
Alc: <0.05%
Rating: 16.5/20 (86/100)
