Newblood Shiraz 2019: Review
Before we start: If you are new to drinking non-alcoholic wine try my 2 minute Guide to Non-Alcoholic Wine or my Top Non-Alcoholic Drinks Picks. This is one of the best non-alcoholic red I’ve tasted. Unlike most non-alcoholic red wines Newblood Shiraz 2019 keeps some deeper flavours of black plum, chocolate and earth along with a hint of raspberry. Other non-alcoholic reds that manage that are Lautus Savvy Red, Win.e Tempranillo and Australia’s Songbird Cabernet Sauvignon . It is has brighter fruit than alcoholic shiraz/syrah and at the back of the palate there’s a hint of added grapejuice, so in a blind taste against an alcoholic shiraz there would be no mistaking which is which. It is very smooth in the mouth and the finish is good. As a result this a very enjoyable drink. with no regrets the next day. Has been a constant repeat buy for me.
If you like this you might also like….
Lautus Savvy Red: In my view the best non-alcoholic dry red. South African blend of cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, and pinotage.
Win.e Tempranillo: One of better non-alcoholic reds. Dark black stewed fruits abound. Spanish.
Songbird Cabernet Sauvignon: Different grape, equal in quality. Cheaper though fewer places to buy.
Plus and Minus Shiraz (de-alcoholised): More zero alcohol Australian shiraz. This has a lighter and fruiter style.
McGuigan Zero Shiraz (de-alcoholised). Most widely available, in retail stores such as Dan Murphy’s. Again, has a lighter and fruitier style.
Domaine de la Prade Cabernet Merlot: Well respected French non-alcoholic red that acts as a kind of international benchmark. More expensive.
