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

Glaetzer Wallace takes on the traditional Barossa Valley blend of Shiraz and Grenache in a thoroughly modern way. Black cherries and winter fruits dominate the nose - which is pure, lively and captivating. Rich and rounded on the palate, the Grenache adds blackberry tones and fresh acidity whilst the old-vine Shiraz adds structure, hints of liquorice and bright fruit. A spicy, savoury, food friendly wine.

Critical Acclaim

"(75% shiraz and 25% grenache, the latter from bush vines that are reportedly 80 to 120 years of age; no new oak): Vivid ruby. Candied red and dark berry, pipe tobacco and mocha aromas accented by woodsmoke, cinnamon and black pepper. Fine-grained, sappy and focused, with penetrating, firm flavors of ripe black raspberry and cherry Silky and sweet on the lingering finish. "
91 Points

"Bright, relatively light colour; a lively, light- to medium-bodied wine with red cherry and raspberry nuances and enough tannins to provide structure without overwhelming the fruit. Top class elegance. "
