  • 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

Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 2010 has a crimson, deep-red core. On the nose, it is delicately scented with fragrances of lavender, rosemary, and rose petal. Also, well-absorbed oak (cedar), and a suggestion of regional artefact — spearmint and blackcurrant pastille. The subtle background scents of fruit mince, sage, and brown butter cautiously seep in to fill any aromatic void. On the palate, it this is a lively wine. Intense, generous and vibrant fruits - with volume! Stewed quince, rhubarb and loquat laced with cocoa, cedary oak. Mouth-coating, ripe tannins augment an even and sweet palate continuum... textured and complete. Structurally, everything in place, in tune.

Critical Acclaim

"Opaque ruby. Sexy oak-spiced aromas of cherry-cola, boysenberry and pipe tobacco. Lush and creamy in texture, with intense dark fruit flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Dusty tannins add shape to a long, sappy, appealingly sweet finish. This wine is a baby.
Rating: 90(+?)"
90 Points

"A convivial, lively shiraz, 128 offers red fruit vibrancy balanced by round, spicy tannins. Its simple berry-scented fruit will keep you chewing on the bones long after the lamb chops are gone."
