Alcohol-free white wine is preferably made from grape varieties such as Riesling, Chardonnay, Muskateller, Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner Veltliner. Each individual grape variety has its own unmistakable bouquet.
The Riesling grape variety is one of the most popular white wines in Germany. Wines made from Riesling are very differently nuanced depending on the region of origin. Quality levels and flavors can therefore be location-dependent. The typical Riesling wine is pale yellow and has aromas of peach and apple. Fresh Riesling white wines are ideal for the summer. It is characterized above all by its dry to fruity sweetness combined with fresh and elegant citrus notes.
In addition to Riesling, the grape variety “Chardonnay” is one of the most famous and of the highest quality in the world. The variety occurs in all wine-growing countries and grows in Germany. The Chardonnay grape ripens in late autumn. Normally, wines of this variety contain a relatively high alcohol content. At zero percentage you will find unlimited non-alcoholic wines. Citrus, apple, apricot, pineapple or melon are typical aromas. Special freshness with a light smoky and nutty taste round off the Chardonnay perfectly.
Our neighboring country Austria also sends a pleasant white wine representative into the race. Grüner Veltliner is one of the most popular grape varieties in Austria. Maturation occurs in the middle and late stages. The white grape variety "Grüner Veltliner" dates back to Roman times and there are different quality levels. The alcohol-free white wine is characterized by a spicy and peppery scent. With longer storage, a typical almond aroma develops in the bouquet. With its intense bouquet and fresh aroma, it suits a wide variety of tastes and goes well with many dishes.
Another white grape variety from Austria is Silvaner, also known as Silvaner or Grüner Silvaner. However, it is now more widespread in Germany. Silvaner white wines are neutral in taste and have mild acidity and a fine bouquet. The non-alcoholic wine can contain fruity to earthy notes. The properties are strongly influenced by the soil and location of the vine. Herbs, fresh hay and gooseberries characterize the aromas of this white wine. Light wines go well with light vegetable and fish dishes with asparagus.
Verdejo, a Spanish white wine variety, comes mainly from the Rueda wine region and is only cultivated in this region. The Verdejo grapes are medium-sized and can produce very concentrated, full-bodied white wines. In terms of taste, non-alcoholic white wines from this variety can convince with exotic fruit aromas and aromas of fennel, laurel and aniseed. After several years of storage, non-alcoholic white wines from Verdejo develop a nutty and creamy character.
Weißburgunder is also a white grape variety from the 14th century, which has the names Pinot Blanc, Weißer Burgunder, Pinot Bianco and Klevner, among others. Countries such as Italy, the Czech Republic, Portugal and Moldova are among the largest growing countries. The grape variety usually grows where it is too hot for Riesling. Some grape varieties and wines are so similar to Chardonnay that the varieties were often confused up until the 19th century. The aroma of the non-alcoholic wine is subtle and unobtrusive, reminiscent of apples, pears, quince, apricots, citrus fruits, pineapple and nuts.
Muscat (also known as Gelber Muskateller or simply Muskateller) is a white grape variety whose full name is Muscat Blanc à Petit Grains Ronds. The best location for growth is a warm place as the variety germinates quickly. For example, it is grown in the Mediterranean region. There are many flavors and different compositions. Muscat may feature floral notes such as white peach, pineapple, lychee, lily of the valley, jasmine, and violet, among others. While other Muscat non-alcoholic wines take on flavors such as pear, apple, orange, tangerine, quince and almond. Yellow Muscatel flavors include almond, orange peel, peach, rose, ivy, cardamom, gingerbread and Florentine.
