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

Harvested in the cool of the morning and fermented at cool to moderate temperatures in order to retain fruit spice and varietal impact. The fermenting must was gently and routinely pumped over with care. Careful selection of appropriate American and French oak barrels has allowed the fruit to remain to the front while providing structure, gentle tannin and spicy flavor from the wood.

Critical Acclaim

"Good colour; a lifted bouquet of plum, blackberry and a hint of apricot; the palate is sweet and supple and has an dark element of tar to complement the chewy finish. Drink now-2014."
