This is one of the questions we get asked a lot at this time of year, as many of us try to shed those extra pounds we added during the Christmas festivities.
Here’s just a couple of suggestions.
Bella by Invivo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Bella by Invivo has 30% less alcohol and 30% fewer calories than a typical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, and is absolutely gorgeous too! Fresh cut pineapple and passionfruit with hints of greengage plums and racy limes hit both nose and palate. A soft, full textured mouth-feel and pleasing balance leave the palate both awakened and refreshed. Bella by Invivo is deceptive in its power and has great length without requiring high alcohol, using fruit intensity as the backbone to its structure. This delicious wine will accompany a wide range of cuisines and excel with light salads and pasta dishes. Bella by Invivo has only a 9.5% ABV and is available at The Whalley Wine Shop for £10.99
Fresita, Sparkling Wine from Chile
This lovely Sparkling Wine from Chile is very popular for lots of reasons, not only because this wine is infused with fresh natural Patagonian Strawberries which creates a delicious fruity, juicy, mouthwatering Sparkling Wine but also the alcohol content is only 8%! We currently have stocks in the shop, and at only £7.99 a bottle (2 for £15) for a really nice fizz, it helps the pocket as well as the waistline!
