Since it’s World Prosecco Day on August 13th, we thought we’d throw the spotlight on our range of non-alcoholic Prosecco and give you a bit of a run-down of these easy drinking, popular sparkling wines.
What is Prosecco?
Prosecco is traditionally an Italian sparkling white wine made primarily using Prosecco (aka “Glera”) grapes. Prosecco tends to have lively fruit and floral aromas, with light, effervescent bubbles and a profile that leans more towards the sweeter end of the scale.
The flavour of Prosecco can be described as aromatic and crisp, with apple, pear, white peach, and apricot notes often coming through. Some finer bottles of Prosecco are even known to offer up aromas of tropical fruits, banana cream, hazelnut, vanilla, and honeycomb – sounds dreamy!
While the range of flavours and profiles you get from Prosecco varies widely, there is one thing they have in common. Most Prosecco variants have intense aromas yet carry fresh, light and comparatively simple flavours. Because of this, Prosecco is often a key ingredient used in many popular cocktails such as a Bellini, Aperol Spritz and Mimosa. Being such a highly versatile beverage, it’s no wonder it’s one of our top selling categories of non-alcoholic wines.
Our range of Non-alcoholic Prosecco
There’s a lot to love about Prosecco, and our range of non-alcoholic Prosecco means you don’t have to miss out! You can still enjoy a lovely aromatic and crisp sparkling white wine, without the alcohol. The question is, which one should you try first? Here are a few that we think are well worth sampling:
Fresh lemon, grapefruit, and pear make for an inviting fruit-driven aroma from this wine. A light, playful palate greets you with refreshing citrus and stonefruit, elevated by effervescence. Expect a wonderfully energetic non-alcoholic sparkling wine with a crisp, dry finish.
This South Australian beauty is nice and dry with a creamy mouthfeel. It has a lovely golden colour, with crisp apple and citrus flavours that are accompanied by a yummy sour bite. It's delightfully refreshing, perfect to drink on its own or mixed into a cocktail. This Prosecco has less than 0.5% ABV and only 31 calories per 100mls.
Lyre's Classico is a Prosecco style alcohol free sparkling wine that is subtle and light with a crisp apple tang. It leaves a pleasant, slightly acidic aftertaste that lingers after each sip. It’s very easy drinking and would be well suited to use in any cocktail that calls for Prosecco. Another guilt free option with 0% alcohol and only 19 calories per 100mls.
Looking for more of a sweet Prosecco?
One thing we would say is that, despite commonly having a sweeter profile, none of the non-alcoholic Prosecco we've mentioned above are particularly sweet.
If you are looking for a sweeter sparkling white wine, then the Edenvale Sparkling Cuvee could be a great choice. It’s very fragrant with aromas of ripe apples, tropical fruit and citrus notes. It is clean and refreshing on the palate with rich fruit flavours balanced by zesty acidity.
