Cutting Sugar out of your wine diet.

Cutting sugar out of your diet is now more important than ever with recent studies suggesting sugar can be more harmful than fats.

The benefit of drinking Ghost Wines over some other wines is that our wines are a lot better for you. Quality is critical and that is why all Ghost Wines products are handpicked with excellent quality grapes and only pressed once. The benefit is the wine needs less sugar because the grapes are ripe and have good acid levels.

Machine picked grapes don’t have the quality control of the human eye and hence unripe grapes are picked which need more sugar to get rid of the sour taste. Some winemakers press the grapes for a second time to extract as much juice as possible. This can cause a very sour taste due to the seeds and stems being crushed meaning more sugar is required to balance the taste.

Humans can find it hard to taste the sugar in wine because acids and tannins in wine can distort sensitivity to sweetness. What you can do is look for the sugar levels on a winemaker’s website. Alternatively, don’t buy cheap wine that is machine picked and definitely don’t buy Moscato if you want to look after your waistline.

Here are some examples of sugar in wine per litre:

  • Moscato = 80+ grams of sugar per litre
  • Sparkling machine picked = 12-17 grams of sugar
  • Ghost handpicked Sparkling = 7 grams of sugar
  • Ghost handpicked Sauvignon Blanc = 3 grams of sugar
  • Cheap Red wine machine picked = 2-15 grams
  • Ghost handpicked Clare Valley Shiraz = <1 gram
