Summary
A medium-dry alcohol free red wine. The black grape and blackcurrant flavours are out of balance and not well integrated with each other, leading to a disappointing wine. Poor quality.

Ingredients
De-alcoholised wine made from Garnacha and Syrah grapes, preservative E-242 and sulphur dioxide.

Summary
A light wine similar to a Beaujolais, but doesn’t feel like a wine due to its excessively light body. Aromas of red fruits, black grape, blackcurrant and penny sweet bananas. Fair quality.
