Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 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

2010 shaped up as another high quality year in the Adelaide Hills. During the ripening season we were blessed with dry conditions and mild temperatures which allowed ideal flavor maturation in the berries. The growing season itself was a little more condensed than average and the actual grape harvest was some 3 weeks earlier than 2009. This was attributed to warmer than normal conditions in October and November which really gave the vines a big jump start with growth. Just prior to this we had great abundant rainfall and, as all gardeners know, water plus sunshine is just what plants love.

This wine is made with no oak and no MLF allowing the zesty varietal characters of the grape to be expressed. The nose is a myriad of citrus, grapefruit and fresh ripe tropical fruit aromas which are vibrant, but not overpowering. The palate is fresh and retains a nice medium mouth watering acidity which gives the wine a clean crisp finish. This wine is great drinking with seafood, salads, sushi and Asian cuisine or simply enjoying on its own with friends.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and refined, with a streak of hay and warm grass weaving through the pear and apple flavors, persisting nicely on the refreshing finish. Drink now. 2,200 cases made."
