Leitz Eins Zwei Zero Alcohol Free Sparkling Riesling (0% ABV)
A very modern alcohol free sparkling wine, which gives you a nice impression of what´s already possible in the production of de-alcoholized wines. Leitz's focus is the small gap between "the real champagne-experience" and the best available quality without alcohol. Their mission is, to keep the gap as small as possible, to make new friends and to offer this product to those who don´t want to consume alcohol, but who are seeking for a nice experience to celebrate life without any compromise. The taste is almost dry and shows up with nicely embedded hints of peach and apricot, fresh apples and a full mouthfeel. We have noticed that this quality has also a very nice ability to show delicious mature notes, which we know from more complex Riesling wines, when it´s close to the end of it´s "best-before-life". It´s an amazing product!
Alcohol Free wines have just natural ingredients and but techniques to ensure it is alcohol free vary. This includes removing sugar pre fermentation to more sophisticated techniques of spinning the alcohol out through cones. Across Europe beers below 0.5% ABV are classed as alcohol free. In the UK drinks that are between 0.05% and 0.5% ABV are classed as non-alcoholic.
