Good news if you enjoy a glass of wine but like to watch your waistline.

M&S Wine has launched a new wine range which is lower in alcohol and calories yet retains all the flavour of a standard glass of vino.

Called Sumika - meaning light in Japanese - the wines are made in Stellenbosch, South Africa and contain 30% less of the calories of normal bottles.

You can choose between white Sauvignon Blanc with just 50 calories per 100ml while the red Shiraz and rose contain 52 calories per 100ml. All wines are prices at £7.50.

 The low-calorie range includes a rose

M&S winemaker Sue Daniels says: “Using clever blending and space-age spinning cone technology we’ve together created this range which is lower in alcohol and calories by over 30% yet still – most importantly – retains its character and flavour.”

“As we’ve seen in our foodhalls, customers are increasingly aware of their calories and are looking for options which fit into with their lifestyles, yet don’t compromise on the quality or flavour. It’s taken us a while to perfect this balance, and we’re excited to see what customers think.”

Sumika wines are in M&S stores and online
