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. This is the best non-alcoholic red I’ve tasted. Unlike most non-alcoholic red wines Newblood Shiraz 2019 keeps some deeper flavours a black plum, chocolate and earth along with a hint of raspberry. The only other non-alcoholic red that manages that is the Domaine de la Prade Cab Merlot. I much prefer this Newblood Shiraz 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.

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.
