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

Graham's is one of the finest wines of the year, showing all the very best characteristics of this rich Vintage. Excellent deep red garnet color at the heart of the glass. On the nose a rich intensity of caramelised fruit and coffee. On the palate this wine is in perfect harmony, round, soft yet with "grip" and shows a huge length.

Critical Acclaim

"Lastly, we finished the evening with an exquisite bottle of 1970 Graham's Vintage Port. It was rich and concentrated with loads of berry fruit, an unctuous texture, balanced freshness, and surprising vigor and youthfulness for 36-year old port." Hedonists Gazette March 2006 Charleston Tasting"
96 Points

"This is an extremely full-bodied, powerful wine, but it still retains a classy balance. Deep ruby, with chocolate and berry aromas, full-bodied, with anise and dried cherry flavors, full, hard tannins and a long finish."
94 Points
