Great packaging that would sit well on a retail shelf or in an ice bucket with friends. I haven’t tried a lot of reduced alcohol wines so was interested to see this range. The wines that had the greatest typicity of style were the most enjoyable to try, namely the Prosecco and the Sauvignon Blanc.
The Refreshingly light label really does describe what is in the bottle, as they are all light and refreshing styles.
I would recommend to serve very chilled.
Brown Brothers Refreshingly Light Prosecco NV 9%
This wine was effervescent with a lot of bubbles in the glass and on the palate. The nose was what I expect from a Prosecco; green pear skin and floral aromas with mouth-filling bubbles and a lick of sweetness. This Prosecco has good flavour and is typical of style. The finish is short but it’s a good little quaffer with 20% less alcohol than their regular Prosecco. Best served cold.
Brown Brothers Refreshingly Light Pinot Grigio 2020 9%
The Pinot Grigio is made in a typically neutral style with green fruit notes and lemon pith. Very light bodied with some slight textural grip and the flavour does disappear quickly. But if you like a super light style with a fresh, tangy acid profile then this will suit. Enjoy straight from the fridge.
Brown Brothers Refreshingly Light Sauvignon Blanc 2020 9%
This wine shows the pungent and lifted Sauvignon Blanc characters of tinned asparagus and tropical notes. It’s a light bodied style that is full flavoured, with passionfruit, green pea notes and zippy acidity, although the finish disappears quickly. This wine represents all that there is to like about sauvignon blanc – flavour and freshness. Serve highly chilled for maximum enjoyment.
Brown Brothers Refreshingly Light Dry Rose 2020 9%
This Rose shows a very delicate perfume of candied strawberries. It is a pale pink colour and dry in style with hints of red fruits and with tangy acid. Green strawberry notes add freshness leading to a light as a feather finish. A light drink now style so the perfect BBQ wine on a Sunday in preparation for return to work the next day.
