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

Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is the quintessential Western Australian blend with a nod to Bordeaux. The wines are typically fermented in stainless steel and released fresh and vibrant, the round structure of Semillon enhanced by the tighter linear tructure of Sauvignon. A true example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.

Lifted grassy and gooseberry notes with pronounced citrus blossom and lemon rind overtones that are fragrant, clean and inviting. The palate is supple and juicy, with delicious racy lemon and grapefruit flavours and a distinct minerally counterpoint. Lovely balance, harmonious and round but finishing with crisp and clean.

Critical Acclaim

"A bright and fragrant bouquet is a promising start, and the citrus and tropical palate does not disappoint; finishes with refreshing lemony acidity."

With a landmass the size of the US, Australia has just as many appellations. Many wines are simply labeled from their state of origin. Some of these are the most popular: New South Wales - home to Sydney and other tourist destinations, New South Wales has a smaller focused wine growing region, but many wines are a blend of these smaller appellations and so are deemed New...

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.
