Best Non Alcoholic Red Wine 2023

Best Non Alcoholic Red Wine 2023

Sipping on a red wine without alcohol for the past year have been quite perplex. 

Honestly, it will continue to be so. 

Why? There is quite a few factors to consider. 

1. Harvesting and Crushing
The process begins with harvesting the red wine grapes at the desired ripeness. After harvesting, the grapes are carefully sorted and crushed to release their juice and pulp, which includes skins, seeds, and sometimes stems.

2. Alcohol Removal 
To produce non-alcoholic wine, the alcohol content needs to be removed from the juice. There are several methods to achieve this, including vacuum distillation, reverse osmosis, and spinning cone columns.
These techniques help separate the alcohol from the other components while preserving the wine's flavors and aromas.

3. Flavour Adjustment and Bottling
After alcohol removal, the wine may undergo flavor adjustments to enhance its taste and mouthfeel. This step might involve blending in certain additives, such as grape juice concentrate, to restore some body and sweetness lost during alcohol removal. Once the desired flavor profile is achieved, the wine is filtered and bottled for distribution.

4. When purchasing a red wine, ensure to aerate. Why? 
The Range needs time to develops it's flavour profile. 
Time Approximation from 1hour - 3hours. 2nd day is always better.
