Norah’s Valley Velvet Red 2018 is a non alcoholic red wine made from the Pinotage grape in the Nuy Wine of Origin Appellation. The alcohol is removed from the finished wine by using technology where the wine is put through a spinning cone which sends the wine through different membranes at high revolution, removing the alcohol with no additions and chemical free.
Wine of Origin – Nuy Composition – 100% Pinotage 2018 Maturation – 6 months in second fill French Oak Barrels
In the cellar
We bring the grapes to the wine cellar and later destalked and crushed. A period of 3 days of cold maceration took place before fermentation. Punching down every three hours, three times a day for first three days extracts maximum colour, aroma, flavour and soft juicy tannins. The fermentation takes place following maturation in French Oak Barrels.
Elegantly labelled in a Burgundy shaped bottle, closed with a screw cap. Above all, the non alcoholic red wine in the glass is a translucent dark cherry red. The aromas are bright fruit, cherry, mulberry and roadside brambles. The palate is delicate, though generous. The oak is there in undertow to support the fruit. Basically, well balanced and harmonious in the waning aftertaste.
The Norah’s Valley Velvet Red is an excellent food partner. Serving it lightly chilled will enhance your experience. Seared Tuna with a good dipping sauce, Carpaccio of Beef and Gammon with a sweet-sour cherry sauce would all ceratinly make great partners.
