10 of the world’s lowest calorie wines

1. Sumika Shiraz, 2017

Calories per 125ml glass: 65

ABV: 8.5%

Launched by Marks and Spencer in 2017, the Sumika ‘reduced calories and alcohol’ label carries just 65 calories per 125ml serving, and manages to retain its ABV at 8.5% through a process of spinning cone technology, which removes alcohol, and the addition of non-fermented grape juice.

The wines are made exclusively for M&S by South Africa’s Journey’s End winery in Stellenbosch, which is managed by Rollo Gabb and winemaker Ben Jordaan.
The range also includes a Sauvignon Blanc, and a rosé, made with Cinsault grapes.

The name Sumika means light in Japanese.
