Calorie counters rejoice! Gin and slimline tonic is the go-to drink for dieters, and thankfully Aldi has answered the call for more options, with their Featherweight wine range.

The four bottles in the range all cost £2.99 and have an alcohol percentage of 5.5, making it less than half as strong as typical wines, which typically have a percentage of 11.6.

The range includes a Sauvignon Blanc, an Italian Pinot Grigio, a Merlot, and a White Zinfandel.

A 125ml glass of Aldi's Featherweight Pinot Grigio contains just 55 calories, while a standard glass has double at 104.

Aldi's Featherweight Sauvignon Blanc meanwhile has 55 calories while the Merlot has 59.

However there is a small catch.

Only the Merlot is available nationwide, while the others are only available at certain regional locations.

The Sauvignon Blanc and White Zinfandel are only available in Swindon, Bathgate, Chelmsford, Neston, and Goldthorpe; while the Pinot Grigio can only be bought in Atherstone, Bolton, Darlington and Cardiff.

Tony Baines, joint managing director of corporate buying at Aldi UK, said: 'We have seen over the last year a real appetite from wine drinkers in the UK for lower calorie and ABV wines to moderate their alcohol intake.

'We ensure we're offering our customers the products they want and so have introduced our Featherweight wines as a lighter choice for our shoppers.

'These bottles have been carefully selected by our experts.'

So half the calories, but also half the alcohol percentage. What are your thoughts?

MFP tells me there's half as many calories in pale ale as ruby ale. It's probably lying but shhhhuuushhh....

P.S that looks disgusting. I tried their 8% rose the other day and didn't taste like anything that had ever been near a grape. I'd rather put fizzy water in full strength wine.

Morgan is the cat and the rum, but Morgan will come out of the cat and go in the kitty in a minute. And I promise there is no beastiality involved.

To halve the calories of a standard drink just drink half of the standard volume.

The site mods are posting some dubious threads lately...

Surely rather than trying to work this out, which would be difficult to do as alcohol affects each of us in different ways, it would be more sensible to just not drive after you have consumed alcohol.
