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

Rich and complex, with an elegant almost playful minerality. A bowl of fruit, peaches, Williams-pear, raspberries, gooseberries a hint of grapefruit and cumquat. A very elegant wine with a crisp, dry finish.

An ideal match with Asian cuisine, particularly sweet and sour dishes or sushi. It will also match most delicately flavoured poultry and fish dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Firm and powerful, with a citrusy essence to the baked apple, peach and candied quince flavors. Long finish of ginger and spice. Drink now through 2017. 1,700 cases made."
