In their regular wine range, Blue Nun have an alcoholic wine called Gold which apparently has real gold flakes in it. Because who doesn’t want to be drinking a metal? Blue Nun silver seems to be based on the same basic product, but in this case has no added precious metals.
Blue Nun Silver is a non-alcoholic sparkling wine. Like other sparkling dealcoholised wines we’ve looked at, this is not simply a grape juice, as the prior fermentation has significantly reduced sugar content, and developed other (subtle) elements in the wine.
Blue Nun looks the part – a good white sparkling wine with just the right effervescence.
On the nose it’s mildly fruity, with almost a citrus zing. This follows through on the palate – a sweet white sparkling wine that you can enjoy without the alcohol. I was pleasantly surprised by this offering, and will be returning to it from time to time.
Style: Sparkling white
A well finished sparking white, suitable for desserts (and celebrations)
Where to find
