2021 Santa Rita De-alcoholised Sauvignon Blanc

Lo and No Alcohol wines are growing enormously in popularity these days. They taste great too, here are a couple from two of the Ireland’s most popular producers Santa Rita and Torres.

2021 Santa Rita De-Alcoholised Sauvignon Blanc €7.50

new to the Irish market and launching in March 2022, the Santa Rita De-Alcoholised wine is fermented in the traditional way, but they use a spinning cone to remove the alcohol. The wine still has all the great Sauvignon Blanc aromas of grass and asparagus and the flavours of citrus fruit, but with a minimum amount of 0.4% alcohol. This will be widely available in Dunnes, SuperValu, Tesco and most independent off licences. Look out for the special launch offer price of €6.00 per bottle. There is a red version, made from Cabernet Sauvignon which is also great.
