Low-sugar wine?

MC Slim JB Mar 10, 2008 02:04 PM

A friend just got the doctor's advice to cut back on sugar, and is seeking low-sugar wines; it appears her days as a lover of off-dry blush wines are numbered. Suggestions?

    Dry roses. There are dozens.

    That said, there's more sugar in a cup of coffee with a teaspoon of sugar than in most wines . . . many labels will have the r.s. content on the label; otherwise, a telephone call to the winery will nearly always provide such information.

    Cheers,
    Jason

      That's a great suggestion, Jason! And we are going to be seeing more and more roses with the weather changing and also attitudes are changing about roses, rosatos and rosados. What I enjoy about roses are they are a nice alternative to reds in the hot weather and I continue them through Thanksgiving.
