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

A blend of 78% Shiraz and 22% Pinotage.

The dominant variety is a rich, spicy Shiraz blended with a deep flavored Pinotage. The 2007 vintage shows intense fruit and I feel that the tannins have lovely soft structure.

Nose is subdued in its youth, but shows clove and liquorice hints. Medium bodied, with ripe fruit flavours. Elegant finish, with oak notes and red fruit following through.

"A blend of 78% Shiraz and 22% Pinotage, this is a serious wine despite the unserious name. It shows guts and structure with a winning combination of dark berry fruit and a notably meaty, mushroomy edge. There's a bit of oak showing along with the tannins, which are notable but certainly not too much for the lightly sweet fruit to counterbalance." 87 Points

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and ripe, this Shiraz/Pinotage blend start with savory spice and red berry aromas, followed by juicy, integrated black fruit, pepper and complex spice. Good minerality and structure with a friendly, easygoing appeal."

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...
