Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

With the great aromatic intensity typical of a cool-climate wine, this wine shows fresh herb aromas over its fruit. Notes of tomato leaf mingle with fresh green chili (capsicum) and asparagus, all complemented by delicate citrus and mineral traces. On the palate, this is a fresh yet elegant wine with mineral and citrus flavors. The wine has a character that is easy to understand and a pleasure to drink.

Food Match: shellfish, scallops, oysters, Asian cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"A rich sauvignon, this has ripe notes of white peach balanced by juicy, citrusy orange flavors. The finish is long and refreshing. A sauvignon for scallop curry."
91 Points

"($17) Pale yellow. Pungent aromas of mint, lemon thyme and lime are accented by a touch of dried ginger. Racy and precise, offering firm citrus fruit flavors and showing a dusty quality. Uncompromising and clean, with strong finishing cut and bite. I like this wine's fat-free character."
