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

This Sauvignon Blanc displays tropical and citrus aromas framed by a fresh acidity and underpinned by a chalky mineral complexity. The palate is finely textured with gooseberry, subtle lychee and mineral flavours leading to a persistent finish. This wine is drinking well now but will develop well over the next five years.

Critical Acclaim

"Blended of 94% Sauvignon Blanc and 6% Semillon, 16% of the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc was naturally fermented in seasoned French oak barriques. It offers a moderate intensity of ripe apple and peach blossom aromas with an undercurrent of fresh cut herbs and oyster shells. Medium bodied with a pleasant suggestion of silkiness to the texture, the palate presents concentrated citrus flavors and refreshing acidity, finishing long and a little chalky. Drinking now, it should keep fresh through 2013. "
