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

Pale green-tinged in appearance. Bright aromas of lemongrass, lime, herbs, grapefruit, Viognier spice and spring flowers. The palate is juicy yet elegant in structure, with a fine talcy texture and a beautiful array of citrus and sweet herb flavours and delicate floral notes. The wine finishes vibrant, mouth watering and flavour filled.

Critical Acclaim

"This is clean and vibrant, with scents of lemon, fresh-cut apple and an earthier, bitter melon note. It finishes dry, with a hint of lemon-butter richness for roast fish."
