Dewlands Guava Juice

When it comes to eat­ing fresh guavas, I’m more famil­i­ar with the green apple guavas that are com­mon in South East Asian coun­tries than the red guavas that tend to fla­vour Western bever­ages. But I do enjoy the fla­vour of red guavas and this is Guava Juice by Dewlands, a blend of 78% grape juice and 22% guava juice.

The juice is an opaque orange-red col­our with a sweetly trop­ic­al guava nose. Served chilled, the sweet notes of red guava come through from the out­set with a min­im­al amount of grit that is char­ac­ter­ist­ic of guava juice giv­ing it thick­er mouth­feel than ordin­ary juices. The sweet­ness becomes more pro­nounced in the body of each sip, but the grape juice adds only sweet­ness without inter­fer­ing with the pleas­antly bold guava notes through to the fin­ish. A slight grit lingers on the pal­ate in the fin­ish, leav­ing a refresh­ing trop­ic­al after­taste. Overall, we’re pleased with this guava juice and it’s second only to the Dewlands Lychee Juice.

This bottle of Dewlands Guava Juice con­tained 1 litre. It was pro­duced in South Africa and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
