Ariel Chardonnay Non-Alcohol 2013
supposedly this wine won some Gold Medal in a contest against full alcohol wines....I don't know what it was compared to but this was horrible. The only thing I can compare it to is watered down, vinegared, Kool-ade.... Ugh..
not a wine, but a beer, rate it at 5
Yuck....this is the nastiest Pina Colada mix I have ever tasted in my life....and I have been a bartender for over 20 years. Left a terrible after taste in all of our mouths. I have traveled all over the tropics and have never tasted a Pina Colada as nasty as these. Go with "Bacardi frozen mixers" in your grocery store's freezer section. Now that is the best tasting Colada mix you will ever have....I guarantee it.
Winemaker notes make it sound like this is regular wine with the alcohol filtered out at the last minute. However, the wine bottle ingredients list water as the first ingredient! Also contains grape juice concentrate and other fruit juice concentrates. Label also says to refrigerate after opening. No mention of grapes used in the "wine" on the label. I'd say this vineyard has a big credibility gap. Taste was pretty bad. I would consider only if drinking alcohol is a problem. I would label this some sort of wine/fruit juice combo product.
Tropical fruit, apple, and some oak: happy to have something that tastes fresh.
This was my first 2008 vintage. I am not familiar with this variety, and this particular wine I felt really needs some getting used to. Not sure if it was intentional, but the bouget was very fragrant with a slight hint of mildew. The color wasfantastic purply inky, unlike the more reddish of the red wine cadre. The taste was strongly boysenberry (as it says on the label) but reminds me of a fenced fallow pasture. Don't know why. Didn't pair well with a roasted chicken and root vegetable dish at all. In fact, I ended up throwing my glass out and opening something else. That doesn't happen often in my house. I am a pretty solid put er up er with offness. Maybe I'll try this variety again by another winery to get a feel for this variety, but its not on my list of favs so far.
Smooth and easy - good price - makes me happy!!
External Reviews for Ariel Chardonnay Non-Alcohol
Rose's lime juice is a sweetened, concentrated lime juice, perfect for use in a variety of mixed drinks and recipes. Sold in a 1 liter plastic bottle.
A smooth, supple structure will overwhelm you at first taste. J. Lohr's Cabernet is full of rich cherry and blueberry flavors rounded out by a delicate oak balance.
J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely-colored with youthful and bright hues. An abundance of dark cherry, black currant and berry fruit greets the nose, enhanced by spicy cedar, vanilla and toasty notes. On the palate, the fruit follows through with full weight and a lingering intensity and balance from the tannins. This wine is ready to be enjoyed now, or cellared for 5 years.
True to J Lohr's style, this wine has tons of oak and enough fruit to balance it nicely. Big and delicious, this wine needs to match with red meat to really shine.
Dark ruby red in color, with aromas of cherry, black currant, blueberry and violets. The bouquet is an elegant blend of vanilla, chocolate, truffle, cedar and thyme. It shows ripe, velvety, soft tannins with a plump structure supported by good acidity.
A bouyant red-purple color with bright hues. Generous aromas of black cherry, black currant and plum fruit, complemented by vanilla, tar and toasty notes from the twelve to fourteen months in barrel. On the palate, the fruit flavors echo the aroma, complexed with blackberry and a plump, softly texture mouthfeel and finish. - Jeff Meier, winemaker
Aromas od dark cherry, black currant, and berry fruit enhanced by spicy cedar, vanilla and toasty notes.
Food Pairings for Ariel Chardonnay Non-Alcohol
<p>The alcohol is carefully removed, but only once the beer has fully matured so it locks in the famous Bitburger taste and at the same time it reduces. The full fermentation process means that Bitburger Drive can be tapped straight from the keg, unlike most other beers. And because it is fully fermented, there's no need for it to be pasteurised, giving it a fresh taste. </p>
