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

This succulent Cape blend from South Africa's premier Pinotage producer displays ripe, juicy flavors of cranberry, raspberry, blackberry and plum interlaced with pleasant herbal and spice notes. A distinctive smoky, earthy character makes this full-bodied red the ultimate grilling/tailgate wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Good full, deep red. Aromas and flavors of plum, cranberry, chocolate, smoke, herbs and spices. Ripe and lush but dry, with a lightly herbaceous quality providing lift. Finishes with broad, fine-grained tannins and noticeable sweet oak."
89 Points

"Focused, with a core of fresh plum, red currant and cherry skin notes, laced with dark spice and black tea. The lightly taut structure harnesses the finish. Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc."
87 Points
