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

Thomas Hyland Riesling is made in an off-dry style and was sourced from the Adelaide region. The wine has spent a small amount of time on yeast lees, which has given the wine greater fruit concentration and a softer mouth-feel whilst maintaining freshness and natural acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright straw-green; has a highly aromatic, almost pungent, bouquet of citrus and tropical fruit, the emphatic palate following suit. The Adelaide Zone encompasses Adelaide Hills, Eden Valley, Clare Valley and Barossa Valley."
93 Points

"Bright, tangy and juicy, offering a mouthwatering whoosh of lime blossom-scented pear and apple flavors, lingering effortlessly on the vivid finish. Drink now through 2014.—"

Love this wine, I first had it as part of a lecture. Needless to say I was very surprised to learn it retailed way under $20. Gorgeous bouquet, delicious. It's a steal.

Again, a riesling that is being judged next to a god--Eroica. Solid flavors, but not to the depth of other rieslings. Good, but not as good... :)
