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

Fruit blossom, spices and almond flavours, followed with a well textured palate with nice weight and a rounded finish. The wine has a lingering aftertaste with subtle wood flavours.

A friendly style displaying characteristics of the components in harmony. The Viognier grapes are sourced from a dry- land vineyard in Malmesbury, the Chenin Blanc from Stellenbosch and the Grenache Blanc from the Piekenierskloof near Citrusdal. The Chenin Blanc and Grenache Blanc were barrel matured in French oak, after which the Viognier was blended and the wine was cold stabilized, filtered and bottled.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and juicy with notes of black raspberry, cherry and mulberry accented by hints of mocha and cigar spice. The mouth is silky and decadent with a wonderfully peppery finish that lingers nicely. Widely available with 15,000 cases imported. Drink now."

Learn About South Africa

South Africa A long history of growing grapes and making wine, but less of a history on exporting it, and even lesser on the quality aspect. At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...

Albarino Mostly grown and drunk in the northwest part of Spain, Rias Baixas (in Galacia), this grape is loved by almost all who try it.
