And once again they have done it, this time with a perfectly balanced Merlot. Good old google tells me that a Merlot…
“is a varietal that sits smack dab in the middle of the red wine spectrum, with medium levels of tannin, acidity and alcohol (12-15%). It’s most famous for its red-fruit flavours (namely cherry, plum and raspberry), easy-drinking tannins and super-soft finish.”
Now aside from the alcohol content, the Giesen 0% Merlot lands smack dab where it should be on the taste scale. It’s soft, buttery, tannic with a great balance of acidity. There’s plum and cherry and a beautiful dark burgundy look to it. With wines like this you are missing nothing by removing alcohol! This one will be going straight to the top of the list come red wine season!
