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

The Glass Collection Cabernet Sauvignon develops a very complex nose with flavours of blackcurrant, cherry, a touch of spices and chocolate. The wine has a good tannin structure and perfect balance.

Critical Acclaim

"Pure and sleek, boasting fresh, mouthwatering black currant and black cherry fruit laced with maduro tobacco and mineral notes. This has length and balance, with the minerality lingering nicely. Drink now. 900 cases imported. "
90 Points

"The aromas are promisingly thick and chewy, with assertive notes of black cherry, cigar tobacco and bittersweet chocolate. The creamy mouth delivers more of the same alongside additional elements of cassis, pepper and leathery spice. The mocha-infused finish leaves little else to be desired; drink now.
Editors' Choice"
90 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Aromas of currant, licorice and mint. A sweet, spicy midweight with good energy and definition to its dark berry and licorice flavors. Still a bit tightly coiled. Finishes with dusty, ripe, building tannins."

Learn About South Africa

South Africa A long history of growing grapes and making wine, but less of a history on exporting it, and even lesser on the quality aspect. At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
