I've been trying to cut down on my fat and sugar in general but aren't actually on a diet, my mate is doing the same so we share any bits we find that will help make eating healthier a bit easier. It was her who found this Refreshing Rose wine in Asda, it's made by Weight Watchers and is lower in sugar than other wine. The bottle looks a lot nicer than I thought it would being Weight Watchers but it still looks a bit cheap compared to other brands of wine in the same price range.
The alcohol content is 9.5% and there are 80 calories in a small 125ml glass.
The wine is a bit fizzy but I thought it went dead flat too quick. Weight Watchers say it's got the flavours of cherries and raspberries, I wouldn't say I could TASTE them things myself but it's deffo a fruity and summery wine. It's got a bit of an acid taste and that put me off because it got more and more acid the more I drank, I only had 3 tiny glasses but couldn't manage to get the 3rd one down at all and it started making me feel a bit pukey because swallowing the wine gave me a sort of heartburn feeling that wasn't very good. It tastes like cheap wine, that's the problem because I can have a glass of cheap wine because there's shedloads of sugar in it to take the harsh taste away.
Obvious Weight Watchers have taken most of the sugar out of their wine for it to be so low calorie and the problem is that means you can taste the alcohol dead strong in it because there's not enough sweetness to cover it up. The fruity flavour ALSO needs a bit more sweetness because it's just THERE and isn't blended very good I don't think, the wine tastes majorly dry to me and I'm not a big wine drinker so I don't know all the special words to describe it but this deffo needs more sugar to give it a nicer taste.
I think if you're counting calories you should get yourself a decent bottle of wine and just count for the few glasses you're going to have. This is a proper boring wine that tastes harsh and bitter, I wouldn't bother with it because you're not going to enjoy it as much as a NICE bottle and you might as well save your calories up for something a bit more special.
A 75cl bottle costs £5.97 and honest, I've tried CHEAPER wine than that that has had a nicer flavour.
