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

Floral notes of peach blossom. Light apricot with pear drops on the palate. A rich palate balanced well by fruit driven freshness.

Viognier 56%, Roussanne 24%, Grenache Blanc 20%

Critical Acclaim

"There's loads of fresh detail in this Viognier dominated blend from Fairview vintner Charles Back. A lemon thyme and green olive brightness lifts its buxom some core of pair fruit while salty honeycomb and macadamia nut undertones keep it savory. its richness, which derives from three months of gross lees rather than from any oak treatment, calls for hearty fare be fatty tuna or pork chops. Best Buy."

Style: Fruity & Smooth
This is listed as a fruity wine and would technically qualify but has a very citrus flavor that is very good. If you are looking for a wine with a sweet melon or berry flavor this is not it but overall was very good.

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...
