Lautus Alcohol-Free Savvy Red




Grapes for Lautus Savvy Red are sourced from their winemaker’s family farm in Vredendal – a town in the northern Olifants River Valley in the Western Cape province of South Africa. Great care was taken whilst removing the alcohol from this rich, supple red blend. They make this blend using grapes in the order that Reg planted the hectares on their farm – Shiraz/Pinotage/Tempranillo/Cabernet Sauvignon. This blend showcases pure red and blackberry fruit flavours with a touch of oak. The elegant palate is underpinned by fine tannin and juicy yet subtle fruit. To be enjoyed in its purest and natural form, without the restrictions of alcohol.


The alcohol is removed via a spinning cone technology at low temperature under vacuum. The initial phase is first to remove the flavour and set it aside. Then the alcohol is removed, and once done, they take the flavour back to the dealcoholized wine. There is significant volume lost during this process; a portion of the alcohol water is then again put through the process to extract the water and added back. This helps to fill out the palate and balance acidity. Normal winemaking practices are followed from here in preparation for bottling.
