Thomson and Scott Noughty Organic Sparkling Chardonnay Alcohol Free NV

GermanyLet’s start with the good stuff. At 29 grams per litre residual sugar, the Noughty sparkler has almost half the sugar content of its competitors. It would appear relatively healthy at just 14 calories per glass, and certified organic with zero alcohol. As for the wine, it was one of the more interesting tasted in this round, although again, I maintain expert tasters who spend a lifetime tasting wine should be tasting these wines with anything less than an open mind. The nose is aromatic with green apple that presents crisp. Its somewhat searing acidity and bitterness are offset by the residual sugar, but it is not necessarily balanced. The mousse is well executed. Try this with potato chips; the salt should help.
