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

The Yalumba Y Series Merlot is an intense crimson red and displays a very pretty bouquet of violets, blueberries and black forest cake, with a splash of wild fennel. The wine-style is warm and generous with juicy fruit and tongue hugging tannins. This gives an impression of velvet in the mouth and brings a long and dry finish to the wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The ubiquitous Y Series of Yalumba seems incapable of failure as it crosses all varieties. Attractive packaging gives this a head start over most of its rivals. A light- to medium-bodied example of the variety, with cedar and olive (as well as plum) playing their part in creating the relative complexity of the wine. Drink now."

Learn About Merlot

Merlot(mehr-LOW) No second fiddle Merlot is coming back into its own. High popularity led to mass production, which then led to a backlash towards the variety (remember Miles in Sideways?). But passionate Merlot producers, and of course the right bank of Bordeaux, continued to produce quality versions of this grape. Merlot remains the principle grape of top chateaux in St...
