    Lower alcohol wines are taking a huge surge by wine guzzlers all over the world. In fact in the USA around 20% of all wine is now low alcohol or low calorie wine (good job, most of them could do with losing a few pounds!).

    That trend hasn’t missed NZ either as wine drinkers here turn to a healthier option. Brancott Estate (you might remember them as Montana Wines back in the 80s and 90s?) were one of the first to plant vines in Aotearoa (their marketing dudes like to call themselves "Pioneers") and the Flight range is their naturally lighter in alcohol range.

    Picked and harvested earlier than their standard Riesling so it’s naturally lower in alcohol at just 9%. A lightly bodied white with juicy, citrus flavours.

    Lighter in the booze it’s naturally a good option as a lunchtime wine, try it with white meats, fish and fresh salads.
