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

Staete Landt 2010 'Annabel' Sauvignon Blanc has an intensely aromatic classic nose with nectarines, tropical and citrus characters. In the mouth a soft velvety texture with abundant peaches and grapefruit flavours with chalky & slaty characters, rounding off in an elegant mineral finish.

This wine is drinking well from now onwards but will increase in complexity and reward cellaring for up to 5 years.

Formerly known as Estate Sauvignon Blanc, this wine is now named "Annabel," named after Ruud and Dorien's (Staete Landt founders) youngest daughter.

Critical Acclaim

"Twenty percent of the 2010 Annabel Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in old French barriques. It offers fragrant notes of lemongrass, lime leaves and coriander seed over a core of green apples and lime slices. Bone dry and medium bodied, it has refreshing acidity running through the concentrated flavors, finishing long and a little chalky. I tasted this same wine from under screw cap and cork and there was very little discernable difference between the bottles, though the screw cap was just slightly livelier."
88 Points

"Pale bright yellow. Aromas of gooseberry and underripe stone fruits. Offers nice texture and concentration, with sweet stone fruit flavors framed by strong acidity. A bit rigid but not bad. The lingering, brisk finish features grapefruit pith and caraway seed."
