Giesen 0% – New Zealand Merlot is an alcohol-removed wine that everyone can enjoy, no matter the occasion.
Made from our premium, full-strength New Zealand wine, Giesen 0% keeps all the best qualities of Giesen Estate Merlot. It’s aromatically expressive, with the varietal characteristics you know and love… only with the alcohol gently removed.
Expect delicate aromas of crushed blackberry and wild herbs in this alcohol-removed Merlot. Crushed red berries and plum offset by toasted oak on the palate combine to give a light and refreshing option with classic structure and fine, powdery tannins on the finish.
It’s the structure and fine tannin in this wine that makes it a great choice with food – try it with red meats or tapas. Or because of the wonderful lightness, it’s a refreshing wine choice for sunny afternoons.
And the added bonus…there are only 23 calories per 125ml serving (or 18 calories per 100ml glass) – 70% less calories than a full strength 12.5% alcohol/volume wine!
When we say there's a Giesen wine for every occasion, we mean it! If you're reducing or moderating your alcohol intake, these alcohol-removed and low alc wines offer a delicious alternative.
We start by creating premium, full-strength Merlot wine, fruit from Hawke's Bay. Then use innovative spinning cone technology to gently distill the wine into three layers: aroma, alcohol, and the body of the wine.
We collect the delicate aroma and recombine it with the body of the wine, adding just a touch of premium grape juice to produce our final blend: a refreshing, delicious 0% Merlot wine with low calories.
Contains no more than 0.5% alcohol/volume.
