ROBERTSON WINERY – NON-ALCOHOLIC DRY SPARKLING PINK
Nothing but nothing says ‘celebrate’ to me more than a glass of bubbles. And for the occasions when I do not want alcohol, Robertson Winery is one of my go-to’s. Their range includes a non-alcoholic sweet sparkling white and sweet sparkling pink. Nice enough to be sure but when it comes to bubbles, sweet is just not my thing. Fortunately their range includes a non-alcoholic dry white sparkling wine that contains 0% alcohol. That’s right, zero. It’s a firm favourite, and I’m tickled pink that they have expanded this range with the release of, you guessed it, a new non-alcoholic dry sparkling pink!
It has a gorgeous pale pink colour, reminiscent of the ‘onion skin’ hues of French rosé. One the nose you’ll find aromas of Turkish delight, cinnamon and strawberry. The palate bursts with flavours of fresh juicy strawberries, hints of rose petals and candyfloss. The finish is fabulously dry and, like its white counterpart, the alcohol level is 0%. I really liked this alcohol-free pink bubbly. At just 64kJ per 100ml I can indulge this festive season and still fit in the skinnies. What do I love even more? It’s price. At time of publication it’s retailing at R55 per bottle. That’s just fantastic.
