Sulphites are chemical compounds derived from sulphur and are used as preservatives in wine to prevent it from oxidising. Vignerons de Buzet decided to start making a wine called SANS, for “NO Added Sulphites”, to meet a widespread trend in wine consumer demand today.

Controlling oxygen levels is essential and we do this with measuring devices such as Nomasens, which is designed to dose gaseous and dissolved oxygen throughout the vinification process without damaging the sample. The cork, specially selected to protect this very particular wine, is a Nomacorc Select 300.

SANS, with no added sulphites, is a very intense purple colour. The nose explodes with red fruit andblack berries. The attack is fairly powerful with tannins that are very present but already enveloped. An attractively long finish that remains rich in fruit.

A balanced wine, but it lacks the protection provided by the sulfites. Avoid storing the bottle once opened.

39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Cabernet Franc, 23% Merlot

Food pairing: Lasagne, pizza, chilli con carne, Mexican fajitas, grilled salmon, melted cheese and smoked pork.

Smooth and silky Review by Dave
Great value easy drinking wine, a little too easy drinking. I took a couple of bottles to a bbq recently and wow did they go fast! (Posted on 27/02/2017)
Not Sulphates, No Taste Review by Nick
Well, it does have taste, but its cheap wine taste. Not up to Winerack's normal hight standards. Tastes old and stale on opening. Improves if left to breath for a while, but then you're just left with a weak and lifeless palette. Definitely cheap plonk: not even worth this price!
