Constellation Wines Australia & Europe, soon to be renamed Accolade Wines, has launched two low alcohol Moscato wines under its Banrock Station brand in the UK.

"Results from our focus groups told us that consumers are definitely interested in low alcohol wines," said Constellation's general commercial manager for Europe, James Lousada. "There are retailers thinking very hard about how to bring this to life," he added.

The Moscato wines have a residual sugar content of around 100g per litre.
