Plus & Minus Zero Alcohol Shiraz (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:||
Winemaker: Corey Ryan
Alcohol: Zero Alcohol
Summary: Plus & Minus is a contemporary range of wines developed to be richer in antioxidants, minus the alcohol. These zero alcohol wines have been hand-made without the use of any artificial sweeteners but do see the addition of grape skin extract (GSE) during the winemaking process. This GSE is rich in naturally occurring antioxidants delivering more of those benefits that can already be found in red wine but without the alcohol. The Plus & Minus range of wines have been uniquely hand-crafted using only high-quality grapes from premium, dry-grown South Australian vineyards. This ensures the resultant wines remain vibrant and full-flavoured once the process of removing the alcohol has been completed.
Vineyards: Fruit sourced from vineyards in South Australia.
Vintage 2021: If 2020 was all about the heat, then 2021 will be remembered as the wet season. In many parts of Australia, it was unseasonably wet in winter but not at critical times to do damage nor impact the resultant ripeness of the grapes. A cool and dry summer meant even ripening was achieved between dry and rainy spells and the ensuing fruit quality was excellent and for once yields were up making for a bumper harvest in 2021.
Tasting Note: Classic Shiraz aromas highlighted by by dark berries, hints of chocolate and vanilla with
hints of oak. The palate delivers vibrant dark fruits, a touch of sweetness to fill out the mid-palate and a thin weave of tannins before ending with medium concentration. Pair it with a lasagne.
