Available nationally, [ yellow tail ], a wine brand for Casella Family Brands, released PURE BRIGHT, a lower calorie, lower alcohol wine with each serving containing 85 calories or less, the company says. Available in Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay, PURE BRIGHT is vegan and gluten free. To develop the lighter wine line, [ yellow tail ] began with the grapes, which are specially cultivated, and picked at exactly the right moment to maximize brightness and acidity, it says. Once harvested, [ yellow tail ] winemakers use proprietary blending techniques and gentle reverse osmosis to reduce alcohol content and ultimately calories while maintaining all of the original flavor, it adds. With an 8.5% ABV, Sauvignon Blanc evokes notes of light citrus and lemongrass complement undertones of gooseberry, lime and a hint of passionfruit. Also with an 8.5% ABV, Pinot Grigio delivers aromas of pear, hints of green apples and passionfruit. Meanwhile Chardonnay has a 9.6% ABV while evoking aromas of citrus, lemon and white peach, with a light spice and vanilla undertone, the company says. All PURE BRIGHT wines are packaged in 750-ml with a suggested retail price of less than $7.
