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

An intense, rich wine packed with flavors of ripe blueberry, mulberry and mocha, exotic spice and creamy vanilla with evident ripe tannins and a long lingering finish.

Guillermo Pinotage is a great partner spicy savory Mexican and south western dishes, such as carne asada, birria, bbq Texas hot links or brisket. It is also delicious with Indian dishes such as Lamb Rogan Josh or Biriyani.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red-ruby. Dark berries, pepper, meat and smoke on the nose, with a spicy lift. A supple and rather restrained style of pinotage , with a firm edge of acids and tannins framing the flavors of crushed berries, plum and peppery spices. Finishes with decent length. "
88 Points

"Friendly, with a juicy core of briar, blackberry and licorice notes that bounce through the medium-weight finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,000 cases made."
