I saw a picture of myself at a wedding recently. On the day I thought I looked really slim and svelte considering I am a mother to two children. However the picture conveyed something rather different; quite a porky looking tired woman who looked like she had had rather too much to drink! Now that the nursing days are behind me, I can at last enjoy a good old glass of wine. However as I am still up and down during the night with Son 2, it makes sense for me to only have a glass or two so I still have my wits about me. This is where new Stowells Light comes in! I was lucky enough to be sent a bottle of the Rose wine to sample. It is a new low calorie "light" wine that contains 30% less calories per glass than a typical glass of wine (60 calories per 125ml glass). Perfect for the holiday season, and for those Mummies trying to manage their weight. Stowells Rose also has a low alcohol content at just 5.5% which is great if you don't want to get sozzled after a glass or two. This is what Stowells have to say: -
"A refreshingly light taste experience, Stowells Light is a delicious treat that’s both full of flavour and low in calories. Stowells Light stands up to taste tests. Bursting with fruity aromas and a touch of sweetness, it’s a fresh choice which can be enjoyed at every occasion, plus it has the added benefit of containing less calories and alcohol than your usual glass of wine."
This Shiraz Rose is a vibrant youthful pink, full of juicy strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit flavours. Perfectly balanced with a zesty acidity and a touch of sweetness.
Stowells Light is available at all ASDA stores nationwide for RRP £5.49
Although wine is lovely, please drink responsibly ;)
