Four to enjoy: what to drink this week

DryJuly just got a lot more interesting with the discovery of Plus & Minus wines. Many alcohol-free wines I've sampled struggle to have more substance than cordial, but this shiraz might be the go-to red even when the month is over. The fruit is sourced from vineyards in Langhorne Creek, South Australia, and the difference here is that grape skin extract is added during the process, returning those rich anti-oxidants. The result is a wine with substance, notes of black fruits, chocolate and vanilla. It makes for very easy drinking, and very easy morning afters. Plus & Minus also do a pinot noir, a pinot grigio, a rose and a blanc de blanc. I have ordered a mixed case.
