THE DOC­TORS’ SAU­VI­GNON BLANC, 2017

Tesco

£9

This Sau­vi­gnon Blanc is nat­u­rally lighter thanks to clever prun­ing and yet still packed full of New Zealand’s clas­sic fresh­ness and fruit­ness. 9.5% ABV.

SUMIKA SAU­VI­GNON BLANC, 2017 Marks & Spencer £7.50

Spin­ning the wine in a cone re­moves some of the al­co­hol, leav­ing be­hind some de­li­cious green pep­per and goose­berry flavours at just 8.5% al­co­hol.

A J ADAM DHRONER RIES­LING TROCKEN, 2014 Wood­win­ters £19.50

Ger­man ries­ling is a re­ally great low­er­al­co­hol choice and this ex­am­ple re­ally sings with fruity ap­ple and cin­na­mon notes. 11% al­co­hol.

PG PINOT GRI­GIO ROSÉ, 2017 Spar £6

A light Ro­ma­nian rosé of­fer­ing up a burst of ripe straw­berry, rasp­berry and red cherry flavours and with a mod­est al­co­hol con­tent of only 11.5%.

ESCARPMENTTHE EDGE PINOT NOIR MARTINBOROUGH, 2017, Waitrose £11.99 un­til 1 Jan­uary then £14.99

Cooler-cli­mate pinot noirs make great lighter reds, this brings spun sugar and rasp­berry jam, although not that light on al­co­hol at 14% ABV.
