Will this new non-alc sparkling wine be the drink of summer?
03 October 2023
Global award-winning Vinada® wines debut their sparkling range in Australia, bringing European glamour and class to the non-alcoholic aisle. With both French and Spanish origins, the current trio of tipples combines beautifully balanced flavour with ultra-premium packaging. For the sober and sober curious these 0% beverages will allow you to celebrate in style this spring.
The most awarded non-alc sparkling wine in the range - aptly crowned Best Vegan Drink 2023 at The World Alcohol-Free Awards - Crispy Chardonnay is made with 100% Chardonnay grapes from the French wine-growing region of Languedoc. Dry, medium bodied, and full of attitude, expect notes of apple and melon on the nose with a touch of citrus set to dance across the palate. This non-alcoholic Chardonnay boasts a very impressive amount of flavour (no doubt with thanks to the heritage of the grapes used) while remaining a vegan, gluten-free, and low-cal drinking alternative.
Continuing their tack for embracing the best ingredients in the industry, Vinada’s Tinteling Tempranillo Rosé stems from the popular Spanish wine-growing region of La Mancha. Awarded a Gold medal at The Gilbert & Gaillard International Wine Challenge 2023, this non-alc wine is a vivacious ruby red in colour, with very fine bubbles and a harmonious amount of acidity, it’s the notes of berry and vanilla that make this drop as refreshing as can be. The final of the three varietals, Amazing Airén Gold, exhibits a lively yellow colour. It’s more subdued in aroma and taste, but with every sip there is an unexpected touch of spice. The Airén Gold was awarded a Bronze medal in the World Alcohol Free Awards 2023, finagling third place after Vinada’s Crispy Chardonnay and Tinteling Tempranillo.
For anyone thinking about cutting back (as well as the health conscious, expecting, and designated drivers), Vinada® is dedicated to meeting and exceeding your expectations. They expertly imitate traditional beverages you know and love, just without the boozy component, and we bet you’ll be hard pressed to taste the difference.
“When you take away the alcohol content, you tend to focus more on the drinking experience, and Vinada® (compared to the many, many non-alcoholic wines now in market) boasts a superior level of taste and style which is no doubt a testament to the quality of French and Spanish grapes used. You mistake it for the ‘real’ thing. And it is their repeated level of expertise that made it so easy to award Vinada® Best Non-Alc Sparkling 2023.”
President of Sommeliers Australia, Sarah Andrew has embraced the beverage category of No and Low Alcohol for many reasons, but first and foremost is moderation and to offer sophisticated drinks to adults wanting to enjoy drinks beyond alcohol. “What is most exciting is the quality and range of beverages now available and this goes far beyond just flavour. As those who are playing in this space are very quickly becoming the diners who decide where they, friends and families dine, this is an increasingly important category. Every celebration deserves a good sparkling wine and Vinada ticks all of these boxes, which is why it is in my fridge ready to go for any opportunity.”
“Sourcing and distributing the best selection of non-alcoholic beverages from around the globe has long been written into our DNA, and we’re so thrilled to be able to welcome Vinada® into the acclaimed VinZero portfolio. They’ve garnered many notable accolades in recent years for their unwavering dedication to flavour and it’s high time Australian consumers got their hands on these popular sparkling wines. We’re so glad to see the rise in the non-alc market, as our number one priority has always been inclusivity in this space. Vinada® is the perfect non-alc drink for socialising sober and we’re very excited to see the response.” Founder of alcohol-free beverage distributor, VinZero, Paul Legaz.
Vinada®, best served chilled in a wine glass, can be the perfect aperitif with salads or desserts (Tinteling Tempranillo Rosé), a lovely accompaniment with charcuterie (Amazing Airén Gold), and a more premium pairing when feasting on fresh seafood as well (Crispy Chardonnay). There truly is something for everyone.
