Lautus De-alcoholised Savvy Red 9/10

Lautus De-alcoholised Savvy Red 9/10



I love that this bottle of non-alcoholic wine is labelled ‘Red’. No varietal, just RED. As I mentioned in my recent Red Wine Blog “Don’t get distracted by varietals. Nothing is going to taste like it’s supposed to. If what’s in your glass bares a close resemblance to ‘dry red cask’ TAKE IT. THAT’S A WIN!”

DAMN Gina! This smells good, earthy, oaky, like red wine (minus the fumes).

*Takes sip*

Gosh. This is PRETTY jolly good! Dry, savoury, peppery, oaky flavours all balance out the rich berry fruit flavours. It’s a tiny bit thin but I think that is just something we have to live with when it comes to non-alc red wine. And it really is forgivable because this wine is scoring high in all other categories!

From the Lautus website I learn “Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage sourced from various vineyards from the Coastal region. A percentage of the grapes are picked earlier to retain acidity whilst the balance is picked at optimal ripeness.” This baby is also 9-12 month barrel aged.

It’s low everything (except flavour); low cal, sugar and carbs. It’s a lot more expensive than my favourite (to date) Lindeman’s Cab Sav but I think it has pipped it at the post.

I HIGHLY recommend! Let me know what you think! I’ll be making sure to try the rest of the range.
