50% less alcohol, 45% less calories without compromising on flavour.
We’ve crafted our Pure Light range to have maximum flavour with less alcohol and less calories than full strength wines. So you can have it all…..with less.
At 6% alc./vol. this wine is 50% lighter in alcohol compared to our standard Giesen Pinot Gris (12.5% alc./vol), with only 49 calories and 1.9g of sugar per 125ml glass.
We select only the best Pinot Gris fruit from New Zealand wine regions known for producing great Pinot Gris. We go through the entire winemaking process to craft a full-strength Pinot Gris wine and then use advanced spinning cone technology to delicately dealcoholise the wine down to 6% alcohol/volume which leaves us with a Pinot Gris wine full of flavour….with only half the alcohol.
Delicate pear blossom aromatics with sweet spice. The palate is light yet textural, with flavours of quince paste and papaya. This lighter in alcohol Pinot Gris finishes fresh with balanced sweetness.
When we say there's a Giesen wine for every occasion, we mean it! If you're reducing or moderating your alcohol intake, these alcohol-removed and low alc wines offer a delicious alternative.
After harvest the fruit was pressed before the juice was transferred into tank for fermentation.
Yeasts specially selected to add texture and aromatics were used to prompt the ferment. Winemakers stopped the ferment at the precise time the balance of flavour and classic acidity in the blend was achieved.
The wine was then gently dealcoholised using our spinning cone technology down to 6% alcohol/volume.

"This is fresh and inviting on the nose with peach, ripe pear, fig and floral aromas, followed by a light and refreshing palate offering fine texture and crisp acidity. Elegant and soft-toned for delightful drinking. At its best: now to 2024."
