Review: Surely Non-Alcoholic Bubbly Red
With a clear mission, it’s no wonder Surely continues to churn out new, and often unconventional, non-alcoholic wines. “Bubbly” is not something you hear often with red wine. And it’s quite rare to find a decent red in a can. But Surely is bucking both those trends with its new non-alcoholic options.
But enough talk. Let’s dive into our experience with Surely Non-Alcoholic Bubbly Red.
Tantalizing in its bright ruby appearance, this red non-alcoholic sparkler is fruity, frothy and pleasant. Crisp and dry, it dazzles the palate with energetic notes of dark cherry, fresh blackberry, black plum and black currant which are complemented by elegant notes of savory baking spices, a hint of roasted coffee bean, and a slightly herbaceous lift via its time in French oak. Oh, and let’s not forget the considerable frizzante that makes these flavors soar! With only 4 grams of sugar, this blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Pinot Noir makes it an exciting and guilt-free party wine.
When to Drink
Incredibly versatile, Surely Bubbly Red is a popular choice for any occasion – dinner parties with friends, watching the sunset with your special someone, and celebrating life’s successes big and small. And by the way, the 250ml cans are the perfect size for taking to the pool or beach!
As you would imagine, Surely Bubbly Red also makes a great food companion. Fruit forward yet dry with just a hint of natural sugar and loaded with bubbles, Surely Bubbly Red is a great match for Margherita pizza, pulled pork sandwiches, chorizo tacos, grilled vegetables, and your favorite charcuterie meats and cheeses - definitely try it with aged cheddar! Serve slightly chilled (we like to refrigerate for 25 to 30 minutes prior to serving) and enjoy.
It Starts with the Grapes
Be it traditional wine or non-alcoholic, great wine starts with top-quality grapes…and Surely Bubbly Red is no exception. Sourced from premier vineyards along the California coast, its various microclimates are characterized by warm days with high sunshine hours coupled with cool night temperatures via the Pacific’s cooling influence. This wide diurnal range allows for the production of intensely flavored fruit, while also retaining the high acidity for which the region is known; the ideal combination for Surely Bubbly Red.
Once picked, grapes destined for Surely Bubbly Red undergo the same fermentation and winemaking processes as traditional wine – critical to deliver the aromas, flavors, natural sugars and tannins so essential to the final product. Surely then uses the latest dealcoholization technology to remove the alcohol without sacrificing any of the flavor, then infuses it with light bubbles. The result is a non-alcoholic sparkler that “doesn't force you to compromise on taste, quality, or your health”.
