I have not given this much time to breathe, I must admit so hopefully that gives this wine a little grace. So far I have not been overwhelmed by the Eisberg range, their Blanc de blancs is a bit of a fail. BUT that doesn’t necessarily mean this will be a stinker.
It smells really good. Like wine as opposed to Ribena. It’s a deep red current colour like a good merlot should be.
Unfortunately that’s about as good as it gets. This non-alcoholic red is FINE but it is not lighting anyone’s world on fire. Its got very little depth, very little grip, it’s not lingering in the mouth at all. It’s not overly sweet and you get a little tannin there but it’s otherwise FLAT as. Very one dimensional. The good news is there are LOAD’s of great non-alc reds that make up for this flop.
If you’re looking for a cheap and cheerful option look no further than Lindeman’s Can Sav, it’s the best $12 you’ll ever spend. Some more recent discoveries that are winners are Sobriety Society Shiraz Tempranillo and Odd Bird’s Organic Red. Both smashing wines.
