Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
The diversity of the Barossa landscape, its terroir — the soils, elevations, rainfalls and temperatures — all vary from one Barossa vineyard to the next. This means that Shiraz has many facets and allows for different expressions of the wine. With Eight Songs, we show a stylish, elegant and distinctly softer side to Barossa Shiraz.
"Deep and succulently-fruited, with mulberry, fruitcake, licorice and a fine seasoning of toasty oak; the palate is richly textured and warm, but maintains freshness and complexity for a big impact, big boned style."
Australian Wine Companion
"Dark and brooding, delivering a dense mouthful of dark berry, plum, peppery spice and licorice notes that come together on the medium-weight finish, which lingers with intensity. Best from 2014 through 2020."
"Deep ruby. Dark berries, cola and woodsmoke on the nose. Aeration brings up suave mocha and candied rose qualities that carry onto the palate and complement sweet blackberry and cherry-cola flavors. Ripe and seamless shiraz with very good finishing cling and intensity. This big boy will go well with a strongly seasoned, grilled steak."
International Wine Cellar
"Tailored along crisp lines, this opens to reveal scents of mint, leather, eucalyptus spice and red fruit. It has Barossa character without any excess weight, a balanced take on ripe shiraz. Age it further, or decant it now with roast lamb."
