Are you noughty? those of us that want to party but without the alcohol have been looking for the answer.
Noughty Rouge has been dealcoholized to less than 0.5% ABV and yet retains the rich flavour of this beautifully crafted bottle.
With just 14 calories per glass and only 2.5g of sugar per 100ml, it's the perfect alternative to your usual alcoholic red wine.
The bottle contains less than 150mg per litre of sulphites and is gluten free.
Varietal: 100% Syrah
Vineyards: Produced with Syrah grapes from dryland farmed vineyards in Darling, South Africa. The grapes are grown in strategically selected sites, which get the warm sunny and cooling effect of the Atlantic Ocean. Deep soils from decomposed granite and rich clay help to provide good drainage.
Winemaking: Dealcoholized to 0.5% ABV using a gently spun cone technology under vacuum and at low temperature to ensure that the wine retains its distinctive body, colour and flavour.
Tasting Notes: Noughty Rouge is a deliciously well-balanced red wine that is deep ruby red in colour with hints of ripe red fruit, crushed black pepper, dried rose petal and candied cherries integrated with French oak tannins.
Pairing: Great alternative to any elegant alcoholic red wine to be paired accordingly.
Grape-juicy. Adding 10 drops of aromatic bitters per glass helped knock back the sweetness.
I was hoping for more astringency. Needs more tannin. Thin body. No nose at all.
Tried this one but also another South African red: Lautus. Noughty is not bad, I would not turn up my nose at it, but Lautus had that nice very young bordelaise cranberry pull at the finish.
But Noughty falls into that category of “try it, it might be the perfect one for you”.
Love that winemakers are messing around with non-alcoholic wines so Noughty gets a gold star just for existing! ⭐️
