Plus and Minus Alcohol Free Shiraz - 750ml
Plus & Minus is a contemporary range of wines developed to be richer in antioxidants, minus the alcohol. These 0% alcohol wines have been hand-made without the use of any artificial sweeteners but do see the addition of grape seed 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 Langhorne Creek, one of South Australia’s most renowned sources of premium red grapes.
Vintage 2018: Above average rains in winter before a dry and warmer than normal summer resulted in solid vintage conditions in 2018. Summer rainfall was relatively low keeping disease pressure under control, but a couple of good falls from November through to January assisted with canopy maintenance. Temperatures were higher than average, with a number of short heatwaves across South Australia.
Tasting Note: The nose displays varietal hits of Shiraz characterised by black fruits, hints of chocolate and vanilla with subtle oak hints. The palate delivers vibrant dark fruits, a touch of sweet fruit and a thin weave of tannins before ending with medium concentration. Pair it with a steak sandwich.
