Blossom Hill have asked us to find 100 Mumsnetters to try lower alcohol Blossom Hill Vie White or Rosé.

Here's what Blossom Hill say:
"The start of the new year is all about lighter choices, so it's the perfect time to try Blossom Hill Vie 5.5%vol. Vie is a reduced alcohol wine based drink that has an elegant, light and fruity taste. It is the perfect choice for those occasions when you'd like a drink without the higher alcohol content like lunch or early evening.
Vie has all the taste you'd expect from Blossom Hill, the nation's favourite wine*, but with only 5.5% vol and 30% less calories than Blossom Hill still wine. Vie is available in White - with hints of citrus, pear and apricot flavours and Rosé - with a floral aroma, ripe peach and strawberry flavours. Both are v. elegant, v. delicate and v. tasty choices.
If you prefer sweeter style drinks, then Vie is perfect for you. We think it's v. tasty, but would love to hear what you think! For more information about Vie and to explore more of the Blossom Hill range visit:

Those selected will be sent a bottle of Blossom Hill Vie White or Rosé (RRSP £4.99). Please indicate your preference when signing up, we'll do our best to meet this but can't guarantee it.

Every tester who adds their thoughts to the feedback thread will be entered into a prize draw to win a £100 Debenhams Gift Card!

This product test is open to all UK Mumsnetters aged 18 and over. If you'd like to take part please sign up here.

Thanks and good luck,

Signed up smile Would love a free bottle of wine!

Done. I don't like the effects of alcohol so tend to feel left out but love making sorbets and granitas with it. A new lower alcohol version to experiment with would be lovely.

Anything with apricot flavours is like a lure for me. Love them.

Am I the only one to be honest enough to say that low alcohol wine doesn't really appeal grin?

vintagesewingmachine Mon 13-Jan-14 15:19:19

Most low alcohol wines are vile but I'll give it a try if it is free!!

Good luck to those who signed up.

Didn't sign up as I loathe sweet wines. Shame. Would have loved to try a lower alcohol content wine. I love the flavour and hate the sensation of being drunk, so for now will keep on adding sparkling water to normal wine.

On holiday in Italy we discovered a dry, sparkling low alcohol wine. Didn't taste disgusting and didn't make you feel disorientated after two glasses. Wish it was imported here. Venetian frizzante. Lovely stuff.

If Vie ever brings out a dry version, I'd love to try it.
