McGuigan Zero FAQs

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Get your questions answered about our alcohol-free wine, McGuigan Zero. From how it is made, to the taste to how it should be best served.

 

WHAT DOES ‘ZERO’ MEAN?

Like in its name, our McGuigan Zero Wines are alcohol-free wine but also full of flavours. It has been crafted just like all our other wines, but with an extra step where the alcohol has been removed. With 0 standard drinks and less than 0.05% residual alcohol remaining in the wine, it is the perfect glass to reach when you want to go alcohol-free.

 

ARE THERE ANY ADDITIVES?

No, everything in McGuigan Zero is derived from wine grapes; no artificial sweeteners or flavours.

 

IS IT VEGAN FRIENDLY?

We’re in the process of transitioning all our Zero wines to be vegan friendly. Currently, our Rosé, Sparkling, Shiraz, and Chardonnay are all vegan!

 

ARE THERE ANY HEALTH BENEFITS OF ZERO?

We all know that the general rule of alcohol is that, drinks with more alcohol in them tend to carry more calories, but not our alcohol-free wine range, here's why:

  • Lower calories – alcohol has calories in it; a 250ml glass of 12% alcohol wine can be around 210 calories whilst a 250ml glass of McGuigan Zero Rosé Alcohol-Free is less than 55 calories*
  • Lower sugar – Zero Rosé has 38 grams per litre; significantly less than orange juice (88g/L) or Coke (106g/L)**
  • Gluten-free – for those with an intolerance, no gluten products are used in the making of Zero wines Zero refined sugar – the only sugars contained in Zero wines is from the grapes; no refined sugar is added

HOW SHOULD I DRINK THE ZERO SHIRAZ?

Slightly chilled to enhance the flavour

 

ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?

The McGuigan winery is committed to sustainable winemaking practices, with 100% of our Buronga Hill winery’s electricity generated by renewable energy

 

WHY IS THERE A ‘BEST BEFORE’ DATE ON THE BACK LABEL?

Removing alcohol reduces the wine’s capacity to age, so to ensure it tastes exactly how the winemaker intended we recommend enjoying Zero on or before the ‘best before’ date specified on the label
