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 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. The only other non-alcoholic reds that manage that are Domaine de la Prade Cab Merlot, Win.e Tempranillo and Australia’s Songbird Cabernet Sauvignon . I much prefer this Newblood Shiraz to the Domaine de la Prade on grounds of being more tasty, being a local product, and being AUD 10 a bottle cheaper. At the back of the palate there’s a teeny hint of added grapejuice – but nothing like as much as other non-alcoholic reds. 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. Will be a repeat buy for me.

If you like this you might also like….

Win.e Tempranillo: One of best non-alcoholic reds. Dark black stewed fruits abound. Spanish.

Songbird Cabernet Sauvignon: Different grape, equal in quality. Equal personal favourite non-alcoholic red along with Newblood. 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 fruiter style.

Domaine de la Prade Cabernet Merlot: Well respected French non-alcoholic red that acts as a kind of international benchmark. More expensive.
