Chateau Thomas uses no sugar in their Slender Wine claiming they sweeten it with Zerose®, a natural sweetener which has zero calories, a zero glycemic index; making it the world’s only naturally sweetened wines. A great wine for those who don’t want or can’t have sugar…
Clearly the target market - just look at the name and label - is diet-conscious women, hence the showcase on our blog. However, not knowing the name, I would still consider drinking this wine. It is on the sweeter side, comparable to sweet rosé, moscato, or riesling.
We ordered all 3 of their Slender Wines:
- Slender White: At first the white seems so light it’s hardly there – in fact, it’s almost clear in color. It has flavors of peach and apricot. If you like sweet wine, you will enjoy this.
- Slender Blush: This seemed less sweet than the white, and was light and easy to drink. It’s not a dry rose though, so don’t expect that. It is chock full of strawberries and is quite pleasant.
- Slender Red: This one definitely will grow on you. It’s in the style of an everyday table wine. If you’re looking for a red summer wine, this is a good one.
THE SKINNY: Let’s face it, everyone needs a drink every now and then, and having a natural penchant for wine, the Slender Wine series by Chateau Thomas can be that guilt free drink you want at the end of the day. With 0g total fat and 0g total carbs, it’s hard to beat.
We heard they had bottles of Slender Wine in the celebrity grab bags at the Oscars a few years ago… if it’s good enough for the celebs, it’s good enough for us!
