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

When young the nose and palate exhibit intense aroma's and flavors of lemon, peach and tropical fruits with a dry mineral raciness; whilst with bottle age these will complex and develop into the familiar honeysuckle fragrance and character traditionally associated with Marsanne. Marsanne, one of the world's rarest grape varieties - a wine with it's roots in France but its heart in the Nagambie Lakes Region of central Victoria.

Critical Acclaim

"Pronounced honeysuckle aromas, the flavour and structure offering more than is usual so young. Could be special with a few more years bottle age."
91 Points

"From fruit off some of the oldest Marsanne plantings in the world, dating back to 1927, the 2009 Marsanne has intense aromas of honeyed white peach, ripe pears and orange blossom. The moderately viscous, medium-bodied palate has a solid backbone of high acidity. Very clean and pure, this wine has a good intensity of stone fruit flavors and a long finish. Drinking now if you prefer a primary fruit style, this Marsanne has the capacity to age 7-9+ years, developing a richer, beeswax / dried fruit character."
