Consumers are looking for lighter, more refreshing styles of wine that better align to their lifestyle. With 8.5% alcohol, these full-flavoured wines deliver the right balance of quality and rich taste you have come to expect from Australia's Most Awarded Winery.

An Australian first, the McWilliam's Balance range is the only range of wines in Australia and New Zealand to be endorsed by Weight Watchers. Weight Watchers and McWilliam's share a common philosophy of helping consumers easily track and be aware of their intake of both food and wine. One 150ml glass of McWilliam's Balance Semillon Sauvignon Blanc or Shiraz equals only 3 - 4 Weight Watchers point.
