Low-calorie wine?

Wine is not slimming. The two components which contribute to its calorific value are alcohol and sugar, so the most fattening wines are strong reds from hot countries, plus dessert wines. The least calorific are dry whites and light reds from cool climates. It is by no means the case that white wine is less fattening than red, nor that dry wines are necessarily low in calories. The least calorific wines are bone dry and low in alcohol. Unchaptalised Dutch, Belgian, Danish, English and Luxembourgish perhaps?

white wine has less calories than red.
Crete i'm surprised! (but then am not a wine drinker) on slimming world diet wine has the same "syn" value whether it's red or white.
