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

Medium straw color. Very fragrant with lifted gooseberry fruit aromas, accompanied by floral notes of apricot and peach blossoms and perfumes reminiscent of jasmine.

It continues the freshness and lift of the nose. The fruit flavours are intense gooseberry and passionfruit and which combine with crisp acidity to give lift and length.

Critical Acclaim

"Moss Wood’s 2009 Ribbon Vale Semillon Sauvignon has intense aromas of lemon juice, pineapple, grapefruit zest and fresh grass. With a good backbone of high acidity, this medium to full bodied wine has good very concentration and a long finish. Drink it now to 2014. "

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
