10 of the world’s lowest calorie wines

3. Brancott Estate Flight Series

Calories per 125ml glass: 75 (Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris), 72 (Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc)

ABV: 9%

Last year New Zealand’s Brancott Estate, owned by Pernod Ricard, relaunched its 9% ABV wine range, the Flight Series. Comprising a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, each wine carries around 20% fewer calories than the typical wine produced from the same grape variety. Rather than using alcohol removal techniques, the wines are produced from grapes that have been harvested early, with a lower sugar content and higher acidity.

Speaking about the relaunch last year, Pernod Ricard UK said now was the right time to reintroduce these wines to the UK market, having been last available in 2015 when it said the appetite for such wines was “not as strong”.

The range is available at Sainsbury’s in the UK.
