Wednesday's Domaine Sanguine Alcohol Free Red Wine (0.2% ABV)
Channelling lighter-bodied red, this Sanguine has noticeable depth and complexity, with hints of plums and blackcurrants.
Starting with de-alcoholised Tempranillo from the La Mancha region of Spain, Wednesday's Domaine have blended the wine with natural flavours and other elements to maintain the body, flavours, aromas and complexity often lost when alcohol is removed.
How is this low sugar and what about the carbs?
As defined by governmental guidelines ow sugar means the drink contains less than 2.5g of sugar per 100mls. Products with a higher sugar content cause a spike in insulin and we react by storing more carbs as fat. You may also notice that although lower in sugar there is some carbs, this is usually more complex forms of sugar such as starches and fibre and the body uses these for energy.
Alcohol Free wines have just natural ingredients, 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.
