This Delicious-Tasting Wine Will Makes Cutting Down on Your Alcohol So Much Easier!

With new freedoms beckoning and social IRL gatherings flooding in, you’re suddenly busy again juggling going out, work goals and maintaining your exercise regime, but you can have it all.
After the year we’ve all experienced, our focus has shifted to finding a healthy balance that allows plenty of good times while living a more hangover-free life. State of Life premium-quality, mid-strength alcohol wines gives you that option without sacrificing taste.
So if you’re mindful of a healthy lifestyle but still want to drink the wine you love, then this consciously-created range is for you. State of Life offers a delicious range of premium New Zealand wines for you to enjoy on any occasion with 45% less alcohol* and 35% less calories* than a standard glass of wine.
It’s the ideal picnic provision for day drinkers, a perfect match for leisurely lunches with girlfriends and the drink for celebratory gatherings and toasts – hello work Christmas party, baby shower, or socialising the night before an early morning start.
State of Light utilises clever wine technology to bring the alcohol content down, while still preserving the delicate flavours, body and complexity of aroma in every drop. What gives State Of Life wines their superior taste, not normally associated with reduced alcohol wines, is the use of premium New Zealand wines as the base, making sure elevated flavours are added back into the final drop.
And of course, we know lower alcohol means less sugar, so each flavourful sip is lower in calories than your standard wine, too.
State of Light Rosé and Pinot Gris are crafted to showcase Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand’s oldest wine region located on the east coast of the North Island, while State of Light Sauvignon Blanc hails from the Marlborough region, situated at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. Both regions are renowned for producing some of the country’s best wines.
So what’s the taste like? There’s a wine to suit your palate and upcoming gathering:
1. For a mid-week drink:
2020 STATE OF LIGHT SAUVIGNON BLANC: Marlborough | Alc/Vol: 7% .
With the succulent aroma of fresh passionfruit and guava, this is a refined and delectable drop – all the way to the full crisp citrus finish. Perfect for rising bright when the alarm sounds for that early morning gym class.
2. Take to dinner:
2020 STATE OF LIGHT PINOT GRIS: Hawke’s Bay | Alc/Vol: 7%.
This luscious and vegan-friendly drop has a fresh floral nose that blooms in the mouth, unearthing lemon and lime notes to a delightfully dry finish with bright aromatics of apple and pear. Drink it when you want to wake up with a clearer head so you can maximise your weekend.
3. Take alfresco:
2020 STATE OF LIGHT ROSÉ: Hawke’s Bay | Alc/Vol: 7%.
This blooms with mouth-watering berry fruits and watermelon aromatics with an elegant dry finish. Perfect to sip on during all-day summer picnics when you want a light and refreshing drop that complements your gourmet cheese platter.
