10 of the world’s lowest calorie wines

6. Yellow Tail Pure Bright

Calories per 125ml glass: 79

ABV: 8.5%

One of the biggest wine brands in the world, Australia’s Yellow Tail last year announced the launch of a new lower ABV wine range in the UK. In line with Pernod Ricard’s strategy, Casella Family Brands, which owns Yellow Tail, cited changing attitudes toward alcohol to have led them to launching a lighter wine range in the UK.

At the time of its launch, head of strategy, Michael Sergeant, said health and social drivers were impacting the wine category in many ways, with drinking more moderately an aspiration for more people than ever, but that concerns over the taste of lighter wines was holding the category back. Pure Bright seeks to address this, with the aim of offering the same varietal characteristics of a Pinot Grigio, citing notes of red apple, pear and passionfruit, but at a lower abv.

At 8.5% Pure Bright Pinot Grigio carries 79 calories per glass, with the range also including a Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and rosé. The wines are available in Tesco at £7 each.
