The lower-to-zero-alcohol wine market in South Africa is still very young and little to no information about the chemical and sensory profiles of the commercial products are available. South African consumers’ perceptions about the category are also unknown. This project aims to generate new knowledge about the sensory quality, chemical profiles and consumer perception of the lower-alcohol wines. A better knowledge base will make a contribution to support the development of the lower alcohol wine category.
