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

Stainless steel tanks combined with clean and simple winemaking techniques make for a pristine and crisp Sauvignon Blanc. We employ special yeasts during our cool fermentation process to create the crisp and ripe fruit flavors of kiwi, pear, and green apple with distinctive mineral and gooseberry notes prominent. The stainless steel treatment assures that the wine delivers the crisp finish and fresh structure expected from a true Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Critical Acclaim

"The bottle may not be traditional, but what’s inside is typical Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, loaded with upfront passion fruit and hints of bell pepper. It fades a bit quickly on the finish, but it’s a plump, medium-bodied example of the type and nicely balanced for the price.

Boxes are back! We have this box sitting in our fridge and while cooking dinner I just use the tap to pour myself a glass of this wine - crisp, grassy, grapefruit-y Sauvignon Blanc. Well balanced and fresh every night, even after a week. This is the perfect wine to keep stocked in your fridge this summer. Great for warm weather, with seafood - 4 bottles worth of wine in here! Can't beat it!
