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

Our 2009 Sauvignon Blanc displays a pungent array of tropical fruit aromas and enticing floral notes. The palate is all about power, balance and richness, providing a wide range of ripe fruit characters from passionfruit and white currants to stone fruits. The wine's tropical notes are nicely balanced by an herbaceous and mineral backbone that can be attributed to the wine being 100% Awatere Valley. This wine is completed by exciting and racy acidity with a crisp lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Eradus continues a successful run with this year's Sauvignon Blanc. As usual, it's fairly pungent and herbal upfront, but then delivers waves of passion fruit. It's concentrated and fairly full-bodied for a Sauvignon, with a lingering finish."
