Freixenet Rose

freixenet 0.0 rose i bought and drank for this review

Winery – Freixenet

Country – “From EU” on the bottle

Style – Sparkling white

KCal – 25 (100ml)

ABV – 0.0%

Sugar content – 5.4g (100ml)

Carbohydrate content – 6g (100ml)

This is one of if not the favourite alcohol free sparkling wine my wife and i have tested.

It is a lovely Rose colour.

On smelling get some red fruit and a bit of sweetness.

When you actually taste it, it is one of the best out there. I know that is a big shout but I’ve had just about every non alcoholic sparkling wine going, has has my wife and family!

This one tastes like beautiful Spanish Cava. There is a nice full flavour on your palate. You get some some strawberry and apples on the palate.

The fizz keeps going pleasingly and the after taste is excellent and you don’t end on a poor note. It is sweet and tastes sweet but it’s good in this case

Most of the big supermarkets will have this

Pierre Chavin Rose Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Rose Wine

Calories – 19kcal per 100ml

Sugar – 4.5g per 100ml

Alcohol – 0.0% ABV and Certified Halal

I drank this with my wife and sister in law, they are my usual sparkling wine testers. Absolutely everyone loved this. I wasn’t a fan of the whole Pierre Chavin range but this sparkling rose was great.

It tastes peachy and light, there is some sweetness there but compared to most non alcoholic sparkling wines it certainly isn’t too sweet

It has a nice sparkle and is very refreshing. You maybe could pass this for a sparkling wine in a blind testing. I think I would definitely use this at parties for anyone not drinking for any reason. Its much better than offering someone a coke or juice when the Champagne is flowing!

You could actually drink a bottle of this. It feels like an adult drink and not a kids grape juice.

Sutter Home Fre Brut Non-alcoholic Champagne Wine

Via Frewines.com

Alcohol – 0.5%

Calories – 34kcal per 100ml

Total Carbohydrate – 8.9g per 100ml

Fre is one of the best selling, non alcoholic wine brands in the world. Their sparkling white brut is no exception either.

It has got one of the higher calories, carbohydrate and presumably sugar contents out of the sparkling wines here but it is Christmas!

There is still a good 50% saving vs a regular sparkling wine in terms of calories so you are still being good, honest.

There are lots of green fruits on the palate here. Apples and pears spring into your mouth with just a hint of red fruits like strawberry to keep you guessing.

St Regis Sparkling Brut

via stregiswines.com

Alcohol – 0.5%

Calories – 40kcal per 100ml

Carbohydrate – 9g per 100ml

Another best seller on Amazon, this is most likely going to suit someone with a sweet tooth. It does taste sweet, especially vs some of the others and the calorie count reflects that.

However, the best way to recreate that alcohol mouthfeel is with sugar so this tastes like the real thing.

This has some higher floral and citrus notes if you prefer that to the peaches and strawberries of the roses.

Nosecco Rose

nozeco rose and nozeco white i bought and drank for this review

As you can see from the photo, i tried both the Rose and White Sparkling Nozeco and compared them to a standard Prosecco from my local shop.

The Sparkling Rose was the clear winner

Nozeco Rose vs Prosecco

The Rose was immediately much nicer than the white. The white had a very strange taste at the start, whereas the rose gave a very pleasant peach and strawberry note.

My other tasters concurred. They got flavours of red fruits, peach and despite having the exact same sugar content it somehow didn’t taste as sweet.

Perhaps there was more structure and flavour to wrap that sweetness around so it wasn’t just as in your face as the white.

McGuigan Zero Sparkling

McGuigan zero sparkling i bought and drank for this review

On for the Australian and European market only i think.

McGuigan is a big name in the Australian wine business. Neil McGuigan was IWSC Winemaker of the Year-2009/11/12/16 & IWC White Winemaker of the Year-2009/12/13/19

Alcohol – 0.0%

Calories – 29kcal per 100ml

Carbohydrates – 7g per 100ml

Sugar – 3.9g per 100ml

There is loads of bubbles giving a great mouthfeel but you can taste a lot of sugar too. It is actually has one of the lowest just pure sugar loads but a high overall carbohydrate count. Does it make it too sweet ? That is up for debate and personal choice.

For me, it isn’t too sweet for a glass or 3. If you were popping this to give everyone a glass then it’s not too much in my opinion. If you try to drink it all on your own, that is a different matter

In terms of flavours on the palate, i got apples and pears and maybe a hint of lime. It was a very pleasant set of flavours.

I tried this at a family get together and the feedback from everyone was pretty positive. Everyone agreed it was sweet but for a glass that didn’t matter. They would buy again.
