Pure the Winery Low Cal Wine

We were sent four samples of the wines from Pure the Winery. These wines included two still wines, a red and white. It also included two sparkling wines, a white and rosé. The wines were produced in Italy and offered zero carbohydrates and 81 calories for a five ounce pour. The range for many wines for a five-ounce pour is between 120 and 130 calories; higher for sweeter wines. The alcohol content for all of the Pure the Winery wines is 10.5%. All wines are non-vintage. The Pure Red and Pure White have a price range of about $18 – $22. The sparkling wines have a price range between $20 and $25.

Sparkling Wines

Our first bottle to open was the sparkling rosé. It was a hot summer day and we had a few neighbors over sitting ten feet apart in our back yard. Those wine drinkers in the group liked the rosé. The salmon colored sparkling wine was crafted with Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay. The Charmat method was used for the secondary fermentation. There were multiple columns of bubbles forming a central and circumferential mousse on the wine’s surface. The aroma included berry fruits. The taste had raspberries and citrus. The smooth mouthfeel was lively. The finish was refreshing.

The Pure White Sparkling Wine was a blend of Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay. This sparkling wine made in the Charmat method, had a yellow color with light gold hue. The wine had multiple columns of bubbles forming a circumferential mousse on the wine’s surface. Apple was on the aroma, while the taste included apple and pear. The wine had a very creamy mouthfeel with a bit of liveliness. It too had a refreshing finish, perfect for hot summer days and throughout the year as an aperitif.

Still Wines

The Pure White was a blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The wine had a yellow color. Apple with a hint of lemon were noticed on the aroma. The taste included apple, lemon, lemongrass, some flowers and mineral. The wine had a smooth mouthfeel and a crisp finish.

Red Wine from Pure the Winery

The Pure Red Wine was a blend of Barbera and Merlot. The translucent ruby colored wine had a dark red hue. The aroma was reminiscent of a red and black fruit salad. The taste included red and black raspberries, plums, baking spices and leather. Fruit yielded to spices on the finish.

If you are calorie conscience you may want to consider the wines from Pure the Winery. They are incased in a white plastic bottle covering and are perfect to match as an aperitif and with a variety of food dishes.

Cheers, Terry
