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

Reflecting an outstanding vintage in Western Australia's leading Riesling region, this is a softly textured, crisp, dry, lemon-lime fruited wine with a fine line of acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale straw-green; the fragrant, floral bouquet leads into a delectably juicy, fresh palate, with lime juice and minerally acidity playing equally important roles."
94 Points

"This is a bit rounder and richer than many Australian Rieslings, with pronounced weight and rich texture on the palate. Instead of lime, it delivers orange blossom and orange sherbet notes that linger elegantly on the finish. Editors' Choice."
91 Points

"Sleek and dry with juicy citrus and mineral notes; silky and fresh with elegance and pure flavors; long, balanced, and lovely."
90 Points
