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

The 2007 Sibling Shiraz is a brilliant deep ruby red color. The wine is strongly fruit driven with lifted, ripe mulberry, blackberry, and blood red plums balanced by vanilla, white pepper and spice. The palate is of full to medium weight with a great intensity of sweet black cherry, blackberry, and plums; this intensity carries through to a long and focused finish with fine grain tannins framing the generous soft fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"The bosky cherry flavors of this wine carry the scent of the Margaret River's costal forest. They add a light and airy contrast to an otherwise full-bodied wine, a bit of restraint in the dark-chocolate tannin and hints of molasses. In the end, the cherry tartness and pleasantly bitter tanning clean up the wine's sweetness and ready it for grilled lamb chops."
92 Points

"Bright crimson-purple; lively and zesty red fruits run through the bouquet and medium-bodied palate; attractive touches of spice add to the appeal and length of the palate."
92 Points

"Giving a medium garnet color, the 2007 Siblings Shiraz has intense dark berry aromas -- freshly crushed blackberries and cinnamon with some savory marmite and meat notes, plus a suggestion of underbrush. With a medium level of fine tannins, medium to high acid and plenty of juicy fruit, this medium bodied style is very drinkable and at $20, it is a real bargain. Drink it now to 2017. "
