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

100% Old Vine Garnacha grown in Galet soils. Due to the terroir of the area, the drainage is very high and thus the wines are very concentrated. It is raised in cement tanks - no oak at all - and shows great purity with lots of spice and minerals. Average vine age is thirty to thirty five years. The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Critical Acclaim

"Lurid red. Sexy red and dark berries and cherry on the nose, with a hint of anise coming up with air. Deep, chewy and weighty but surprisingly fresh, offering black raspberry flavors and mounting spiciness. Delivers a load of sweet dark fruit for the money and finishes with lingering spiciness and good clarity and grip. "
