Giesen 0% Rosé, Marlborough $17.99 

Why I chose it:  

  • Growth in low or zero alcohol wines and spirits
  • 80% less calories than full strength wine
  • Best of the three 0% alc. Wines on offer
  • Full strength Rose with alcohol removed (less than 0.5% alc) spinning cone.
  • Nice to have a glass of wine at lunch without feeling drowsy afterwards.

What does it taste like? 

  • Subtle strawberry flavours. Dry, fresh and clean. A bit simple but has good purity and a good acid/sweetness balance.

Why it’s a bargain: 

  • Not so much of a bargain as a niche wine for certain occasions.

Where you can buy it?  

Food match?  

  • Smoked salmon. Fairly versatile food match

Will it keep?  

  • Drink it within a year. Having said that, I opened a Giesen 0% Sauvignon Blanc released a year ago recently and it was still drinking well.
