Leitz 'Eins Zwei Zero' Sparkling Alcohol Free Riesling Germany - 250mL Can
*Non-Alcoholic* - Zero Alcohol!
Minimum QTY of 6 per order
This is the same as the bottled version, but in a convenient 250mL can. It is made like the still expression, but the CO2 in the sparkling version really balances the residual and makes it appear drier than it it is. Because of that, it's even more wine-like: lemon, spice and everything nice! This alcohol-free bubbly is perfect for the holidays, or any day really. An incredibly refreshing single serving; or, a convenient, light cocktail mixer.
Germany has been producing non-alcoholic wines for a good 70 years. Innovations have improved the quality of these wines by lowering the needed temperature to remove the alcohol. This has created a wine that is non-alcoholic, fresh and remarkably delicious.
Leitz’s hometown of Rüdesheim is the historic birthplace of the famous distillery Asbach Uralt. After the war, a fellow vigneron named Carl Jung began a distillery. Ultimately, Jung could not compete with the local brandy, but he developed a vacuum distillation system which enabled him to lower the temperature at which alcohol could boil off (because the boiling point becomes lower as atmospheric pressure decreases). Innovations in vacuum distillation have improved in recent years, and Leitz found a producer in Rheinhessen who recently patented a new, completely closed system that allows wine alcohol to boil at 28°C, preserving “wine-like” aromas and characteristics.
