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

Amber with orange tints. Aromatic with toffee and malt aromas. Smooth textured with toffee and caramel sweetness balanced by a touch of rancio. Complex hints of nuttiness and some cold tea characters. Good length and weight. Long nutty aftertaste. Maturation Old oak casks.

Critical Acclaim

"A bargain among Down Under fortifieds, Buller's Victorian blended Tokay features wonderfully complex notes of tea, spice and citrus atop lush caramel-like sweetness. It's silky and balanced, with a long citrusy finish. "
92 Points

"Buller's moderately priced Tokay offers a range of delicious flavors, a whole dessert in a glass. Unctuously sweet, rich in texture and long, playing out its creme brulee, orange peel and evanescent remnants of cherry fruit as the wine coats the mouth luxuriantly. Drink now."

While too sweet to have more than a tipple, this is a luscious dessert wine. Really fruity and delicious!

Cough syrup. I love good Port and a good Tokay - but this is neither. It is, in the curious (and I think unfair) Australian usage, a Liqueur Tokay a barbarous pseudo-port of the Muscadelle. It is no Bastardinha. Australia owes me $20, as this stuff was undrinkable. I poured it down the drain.
