The Best Australian Low Alcohol Wines:

Edenvale Low Alcohol Sparkling Cuvee

Edenvale is the crème de la crème with their low alcohol range, with their top-rating tipple being this sparkling cuvee. It’s as crisp as any other cool cuvee, featuring refreshing fruity flavours that linger after every mouthful. Due to the wine having the alcohol removed, rather than being alcohol free, the wine is made in the traditional way with the process of removal of the alcohol added at the end. This enables the classic taste to be retained. Best served with friends!

Jacob's Creek Better By Half Pinot Grigio

While it’s not exactly low alcohol, it still harnesses less of it compared to your standard Pinot Grigio. Half of it, in fact. To be exact, the alcohol is half that of the classic Pinot Grigio by Jacob’s Creek, and also contains half the calories too! One of the healthiest low alcohol wines on the market; just like your standard Pinot Grigio, this baby is light and luscious, with a crispy bite. Expect a fruity balance between nashi pears and lemon blossom with a classic, textured finish. Best served with seafood or punchy Thai cuisine.
