A note from On the Marque PR & Communications had me at the mention of the word Muscat. You can always get me at Muscat. And the De Krans Wines Muscat Nectar Alcohol-Free Sparkling ‘got’ me. A delicious aromatic sparkler…
This refreshing alcohol-free Muscat Nectar consists of 100% Muscat grapes with a slight fizz added when bottled. The Muscat Nectar has lovely tropical fruit flavours with Muscat tones and a balanced acidity. Similar to the De Krans White and Red Moscato Perlé, the Muscat Nectar Alcohol- Free Sparkling will no doubt appeal to those preferring a slightly sweeter, fizzy option either on a menu or on the shelf.
The Alcohol-Free Sparkling Muscat Nectar retails for approximately R58 per bottle, and is best enjoyed chilled, on its own, or served with fresh summer salads, charcuterie or light meals. Available off the farm and some retail outlets nationwide from mid-March 2020.
Alcohol-free and de-alcoholised wines (yes, there’s a difference) are all the new rage with wine lists expected to boom with these new categories. With the proposed 0% legal blood-alcohol level law and a general sense of zero tolerance with drinking and driving, alcohol- free and de-alcoholised wines are likely to see a rise in the future, especially in restaurants and hotels. Taking into account supporting stricter drinking and driving laws, as well as a shift in focus on a healthier lifestyle, wine farms producing an alcohol-free/de-alcoholised option seems to be the new “permission to play”.
Using the best of two worlds in Muscat de Frontignan grapes and Muscat de Alexandrie juice, this wine, with its balanced acidity is a refreshing, everyday wine with a slight fizz. The wine, with a low alcohol of 8%, boasts of tropical fruit flavours like litchi, apricot, Muscat and notes of honey.
