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

Not a sledgehammer style, this Barossa Shiraz is made for drinking! Soft, slurpy and textured it is balanced with good acidity, which refreshes the palate and makes you go back for a second / third glass. Sourced from 3 unique vineyards, it is fruit laden, savoury and dangerously easy to drink! It is matured for 15 months in 100% old French oak hogsheads to allow the fruit to express itself.

Garnet red with purple hues color

A complex nose of dark cherry and blackberry aromas with a hint of forest floor and spice.

Vibrant dark cherry and blackberry with a hint of ‘wombat rolled in all spice' balanced with an even, textural palate with soft, supple tannins

Critical Acclaim

"Medium purple-red; an unashamedly full-bodied wine, with a super-abundant scrum of blackberry, plum, black cherry, licorice and ripe tannins, and oak hidden in the middle."
93 Points

"Bright purple. Intensely perfumed aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry, violet and licorice, with notes of incense and star anise adding complexity. Lush and seamless in texture, with deep dark fruit compote flavors lifted by peppery spices. Finishes with strong punch and very good, floral-dominated persistence."
