I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Brancott Estate Flight Song Wines. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
It’s been almost a month since I’ve posted here on my blog. A month?! That’s crazy…where did that time go? Well, between the kids being off for two weeks for spring break, a trip to Palm Springs, Easter and some home renovations, apparently the month just flew by. Another exciting thing happened: I found some low calorie wine that is just as tasty as regular wine. I found Brancott Estate Flight Song Wines.
Brancott Estate hails from New Zealand and their line includes Flight Song wines. These wines are light, refreshing, crisp, and tasty, AND have 20% fewer calories compared to their other wines. I was lucky enough to receive a bottle of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and one bottle of Marlborough Pinot Grigio.
If you are a fan of grapefruit, the Brancott Estate Flight Song Sauvignon Blanc is for you. And for me. You can smell the grapefruit and it’s the first flavor that hits your palate and it travels all the way through to the finish. It’s a citrus-y, refreshing, full flavored delight and would be perfect to sip around the pool.
But by far my favorite was the Brancott Estate Flight Song Pinot Grigio. While I’m not normally a huge fan of white wines, this one was a winner for me. It’s also full of citrus and is very refreshing. There are major notes of white peach, too. And the label mentions guava, but I didn’t get that. This is one of those wines that from the first sip I gave it two thumbs up. It was like summer in a glass. It would be perfect to sip around the pool or at a lunch date with friends. It was a palate pleaser for sure.
Overall I would say give both wines a shot…and remember, this is coming from somebody who isn’t a huge white wine lover. These are easy drinking, casual wines that you can drink without feeling guilty because they are also lower in calories.
Connect with Brancott Estate Wines on Facebook and Twitter – I’m hoping that they’ll be coming up with a low cal Pinot Noir soon! And if you’re a wine lover, check out my All Wine, All The Time board on Pinterest.
