Giesen WinesWine ReviewGiesen Zero Sauvignon Blanc

December 19, 2021by Jonathan Lambrianidis

The Giesen Zero Sauvignon Blanc review is the first Giesen Zero Alcohol Wine review I pieced together for Tipple Zero. Given it has been 5 months since I first published my thoughts it’s time to get you a well-needed status update!

The Giesen Zero Sauvignon Blanc earns a 9/10 and is currently the best Non-Alcoholic Sauvignon Blanc on the market due to its passionfruit led, clean & crisp profile. It is lightly sweet with a mouth quenching tart & acidic finish that will satisfy even the most discerning Sauvignon Blanc drinker.

Giesen Zero Alcohol Sauvignon Blanc Taste

The Giesen Zero Sauvignon Blanc is filled with bright, crisp, and clean fruity notes that will be familiar to any drinker of premium New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc drinker. With that as the opening line, it can only mean good things.

The Giesen 0% Sauvignon Blanc brings a profile to your glass that is built around a well-weighted body that carries a flavour profile built on:

  • Bold and bright passionfruit;
  • Some upfront fruity sweetness;
  • Crisp and clean citrus notes – think hints of lime;
  • A finishing tart acidic tang that dispatches any sweetness and leaves you with that tang in the corners of your cheeks.

As with all non-alcoholic wines, this will lack the back pallet finish that brings you the heat you get from alcohol.

In your glass, this Giesen non alcoholic wine will present with a pale golden colour and a crisp colour that is bright and clear without haze or imperfection.

What I Like

Things to Consider

The traditional Sauv Blanc passionfruit notes. If you’re not a fan of the fruity passionfruit led profile, you’re likely to want to skip this one.
Acidic tang that rounds out each mouthful and leaves a tang in the corner of your cheeks! For all of you who enjoy a sweeter wine, I’ve seen people note they don’t like the tang at the end of the taste profile. So keep that in mind if you enjoy sweeter wine.

Who Is Giesen Zero Sauvignon Blanc For?

If you are somebody who enjoys fruity and fresh wine, passionfruit notes or the profile of a traditional Sauvignon Blanc more generally, you are going to enjoy the non-alcoholic Giesen zero. So you are in the right spot, picking up a bottle is exactly for you.

Alternatively, if you fall into the bucket of people who don’t quite enjoy a citrus profile or a tang in your wine, this might be a non-alcoholic wine you will want to give a miss, given you will find a (in my humble opinion, delicious) quenching tang at the back end of each mouthful.

If you are looking to get your hands on alternatives that are a little sweeter, I’ve got some links to the reviews I have written on some other alternatives that you might enjoy down below.

When to Drink Alcohol Free Sauvignon Blanc

The alcohol free sauvignon blanc is my current unwind and wind down non-alcoholic wine, this is a great option to enjoy on a weeknight after you’ve shut the laptop and logged off for the evening.

Turning to a bit more of a social setting, given the crisp and sharp flavours, grabbing a bottle of this cold and dropping it into a Husky cooler will have you set to get outdoors and enjoy the afternoon sunshine with friends.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to enjoy this with food, I have found it does well with a range of flavour profiles including:

  • Salmon or rockling with greens and quinoa; or
  • A Cesar salad that would perfectly compliment the flavour profile of this wine.

The Wrap Up: Final Thoughts

The Giesen alcohol-free wine range continues to grow and the introduction of a Rose and a Pinot Gris has seen the range expand to three (my reviews of those are on the way).

As you would have noticed, I really enjoy this wine and think it is a great balance of front pallet sweetness, with traditional passionfruit notes and a tart acidic finish.

If your tastebuds like what they see in this review and you’re up to try a bottle, there are some links down below to help you track a bottle or two down.
