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

Phanto Ridge Pinotage derives its balance and structure from the vineyards situated on the north-facing slope at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, with its shale soils that is rich in lime. Careful vineyard management resulted in a harvest of small, concentrated berries.

Rich aroma of plum and ripe banana, chocolate, coffee and mocca with a lingering impression of chocolate and plum pudding. Soft, ripe tannins and well-integrated oak provide structure and a plushy textured mouth feel.

Critical Acclaim

"Brambly berries, plum and sweet-spice aromas lead on the bouquet of this wine, with secondary hints of tree bark and licorice root. The palate turns to dark fruit notes of black cherry and boysenberry, accented by glimmers of sweet smoke and cocoa. Creamy and lush in the mouth with a texture llike crushed velvet and an enduring finish. Editors' Choice."
