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

Aromas of pink grapefruit, pear, nectarine and wild flowers meld with subtle and complexing flinty undertones, with hints of cashew nut. There are lots of different elements, but all beautifully integrated. A very complex and harmonious bouquet. Citrus (pink grapefruit and lime), peach and pear flavors finish with persistent mineral acidity. The flavors start delicately in the mouth and build through to the finish. The palate is medium bodied and textural with restraint and finesse, but no shortage of flavor. The wine is powerful, yet controlled, with great focus and harmony…and beautifully seamless. A slightly more restrained version of the Devil's Lair Chardonnay. The cooler year has lent beautiful focus to the wine, with a tantalising mineral acid finish. There is every bit of interest and complexity you would expect from Devil's Lair Chardonnay.

Critical Acclaim

"Well-balanced and modulated melon, nectarine, white peach and grapefruit, plus quality French oak soars through the finish."
