Can you? Toi Toi releases low-alcohol Sauvignon Blanc
Ever wanted a delicious wine, but don’t want to drink too much alcohol, or take a whole bottle to the party? Finally, there’s an answer to this perennial issue: Toi Toi wines has released New Zealand’s lowest alcohol Sauvignon Blanc, just in time for party season.
Toi Toi 8.5, is the label’s first low-alcohol wine in a slimline can, created by the award-winning, family owned New Zealand brand in response to growing customer demand for conveniently packaged, naturally lower alcohol drinks.
The cans are 250ml, the size of two small glasses of wine. They contain 8.5% alcohol, significantly less than the 13% usually found in white wines, making Toi Toi 8.5 New Zealand’s lowest alcohol wine in a can.
Toi Toi 8.5 is blended from 40% Toi Toi Reserve Sauvignon Blanc and 60% Toi Toi Sauvignon Blanc. The reserve wine lifted the Perpetual Trophy for the Best Sauvignon Blanc Wine at the 2018 Sydney International Wine Competition last month. There has been no cutting corners with the lighter Toi Toi 8.5 – only the most premium wines have been used from the brand’s sustainable Marlborough vineyards.
“Toi Toi 8.5 is bursting with beautiful passionfruit, citrus and gooseberry flavours – it’s a real taste of summer,” explains Samantha Joyce, Toi Toi Sales & Marketing Manager. “The cans are ideal for the Christmas holidays when Kiwis will be relaxing and celebrating – often with a wine in hand – but don’t necessarily want to be feeling the effects all the time. More people are looking for a quality wine drinking experience without the high alcohol.”
