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

It's a terrific example of modern bright Australian Chardonnay where fruit and texture are present with a hint of oak. Aromas of lemon meringue pie, fig, and some pineapple with a touch of vanilla in the background. This blend is nicely framed and has a lingering finish. TIC TOK Chardonnay should be great on its own or matched with shellfish and most fish in general or chicken and lighter meats.

Critical Acclaim

"Light straw-green; unexpectedly, there is considerable synergy between the Mudgee and Pemberton components, perhaps due to riper Mudgee stone fruit and a citrussy shaft from Pemberton. Whatever, works well. Screwcap. "
