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

Pale straw color with green hues.

A lifted nose showing refreshing snow pea and herbal notes, melon and fresh guava.

Light bodied and refreshing with typical Marlborough flavors of passionfruit, gooseberry and grapefruit. A pleasing herbaceous thread leads to a long lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Winemaker Alana McGettigan is an associate of Matt Thomson (Saint Clair, Delta), so it’s no surprise this Sauvignon Blanc overdelivers. Hints of tomato leaf garnish passion fruit and citrus flavors in this wine, which reveals a certain amount of austerity and restraint on the palate, a silky texture and a long, grapefruit-driven finish. "
