Norah’s Valley is a new wine producer, the wines for which are produced in the Nuy Valley between Worcester and Robertson. De-Alcoholised Wines are becoming de rigueur for people who don’t take alcohol for religious or dietary reasons, and also for the designated driver for the trip home.
Apart from the health benefits, the Norah’s Valley Wines are all delicious wines on their own. The wines are elegantly packaged and come 6 in a carton, which carries the same design.
The wines are made using the conventional, traditional wine making practices. Once complete, they go through a highly technical machine called the spinning cone. In a two step process the spinning cone removes the aromas and flavours from the wine. It then removes all but a trace of alcohol. The aromas and flavours are then blended back into the wine. The process involves no additions and is chemical free

The palate is delicate, though generous. The oak is there in undertow to support the fruit. Well balanced and harmonious in the waning aftertaste. The grape used is the South African created Pinotage.
