Songbird is an independent non-alcoholic wine label based in Melbourne. They have quite a range of alcohol-free wines, but this is the first opportunity I have had to review one! Why not start PREMIUM hey?? This is a de-alcoholised premium reserve South Australian Shiraz, and it is vegan…huzzah!
In the glass, this pours a dark rich ruby red colour. It’s very viscous, thick, juicy, and so opaque you can barely see through it. Like a good Shiraz should be! On the nose, I get a little tartness, like plum and some rich red berry aromas.
To taste, its a leeeetle on the sweet side, you definitely get a big hit of fruit. But it is well balanced. There are nice soft tannins and it’d really rich and luscious. Far from thin! You get the full mouth experience here! I have had this open at least an hour but I am going to give it even longer and see if the extra oxidization helps even more!
Update: I have revisited the following day after giving her a night in the fridge to come into her own a little. The effect is a little drier finish, the tannins push through more, which I love. So if that is what you are into, definitely give this non alcoholic wine the opportunity to air.
Buy Again?: Yes
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.
