Accolade Wines releases Hardys zero-alcohol wine

Wine company Accolade Wines has launched its first zero-alcohol wine range, Hardys Zero. 

The range features three variants: Shiraz, Chardonnay and Sparkling. 

Accolade says the range is made using de-alcoholisation technology Zero Tech X, which helps retain natural flavours without affecting the taste. 

“The Hardys Zero range is perfect for consumers wanting to take the leap into the world of zero-alcohol wines or those who may have been left unimpressed with zero-alcohol wine in the past,” said Paul Burnett, Accolade Wines Zero’s lead winemaker. 

“With over 165 years of winemaking heritage, our winemaking team is committed to continuously pushing the boundaries of innovation and providing consumers certainty in their wine choice every time – whether that be with, or without, alcohol.”

According to Burnett, the new low-sugar and low-calorie range can offer customers a better non-alcohol option since people are more concerned about mindful drinking but it’s essential to ensure the flavour and quality. 

“We know consumers are increasingly more conscious of their alcohol consumption and on occasion are looking to switch to low-to-no alcohol options to find more balance, however, we cannot underestimate the importance of taste as part of their decision,” Burnett explained. 

“The Hardys Zero range is crafted with the same care and passion as our alcoholic ranges; wines that Hardys fans around the globe know and love. Delivering the same great taste with zero alcohol, Hardys Zero is the ideal wine for everyday or special occasions, and consumers who still want to enjoy the ritual and reward of a glass of quality wine, without the alcohol.” 

The Hardys Zero Shiraz is now in stock at Coles stores across the country with an RRP of $13. The full Hardys Zero range will be available later this year.
