10 of the world’s lowest calorie wines

4. Follador Brut Nature Millesimato Pas Dosé

Calories per 125ml glass: 75

ABV: 11.5%

In 2018 Follador launched a new, vegan friendly, low-calorie sparkler with just 75 calories per 125ml glass. The Brut Nature Millesimato Pas Dosé has been made using the Krios system, which uses inert cryogenic gas to reduce the temperature of grapes during crushing, removing the air and eliminating the unfavourable effects of oxygen on a wine in the pressing phase.

This process has also allowed Follador to reduce the level of sulphites used in its wines by 30%. Follador claims to be the first producer in Valdobbiadene to experiment with the Krios system, and has now trademarked the entire process under the name the ‘Gianfranco Follador Method’.

From the 2017 vintage all of Follador’s Proseccos, produced across four DOCGs in Valdobbiadene in the ‘Torri di Credazzo’ Cuvée, Cartizze, Brut and Extra-Dry categories, will undergo the Krios system.

This new sparkler is described as having “an important, harmonious structure” with aromas of “green apple, pear, lime, citrus and fresh flowers”.
