To be honest, when I heard that Hardy’s were bringing out a zero range I did a little eye roll. A big commercial winery delivering a non-alcoholic wine does not float my boat. Also, I am the LEAST wine snobby person out there (ALDI wine anyone?) and I would never have gone for a Hardy’s when I was drinking. It always screamed cheap and nasty to me.
Looking at the label, if you like clean drinking and eating, this is not the wine for you. There are a lot of things in here other than dealcoholized wine.
It smells a little musty and funky on the nose. To taste, it is not too bad. Better than I was expecting actually. It’s quite dry with deep cherry flavours. There is an aftertaste that I am not in love with, but the overall balance is pretty good. Worth a taste if you are not fussed on additives, but it’s loosing points for me on that basis.
Buy Again?: No
Products I review on the website that link to online retailers may pay me affiliate commissions. If you purchase I collect a small commission (at no cost to you!) and it really helps me offset some of the cost of running Dry but Wet. However I remain as always impartial and unbiased with every review.
