As good as a de-alcoholised red can get
Zeno have created here one of the best de-alcoholised red wines that I’ve tasted. That’s not to say I loved it, or that I’m yet a believer in the pleasures of de-alcoholised wines, but with this offer from Zeno I’m prepared to give it a go.
The drink starts with a spicey bouquet and this aura of being almost a mulled wine pervades the whole. The body has a fine flavour of red berries and, I’d swear, star anise, all balanced with layered tannins and a decent sweetness, with a long, dry finish. The only failing, which seems inevitable without alcohol, is that it is ultimately a little watery.
All in all, there is as much here to satisfy a fan of red wines as I think any de-alcoholised wine can deliver.
Or this drink may well be available from your high street supplier – we’re sorry we cannot check them all but you might like to.
