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

A ripe, spicy shiraz loaded with aromas of black fruits, minerals and liquorices. The intense fruit characters are echoed on the palate, supported by charry oak. It has a supple, balanced mouthfeel that is neither heavy nor overly extracted. The ripe fruit, fine tannins and tight acidity should ensure a cellaring life of 7 – 10 years under ideal conditions.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark ruby. Fresh, high-pitched aromas of black raspberry, cassis, dark plum and fresh tobacco, with a subtle peppery nuance. Round, moderately deep flavors of bitter cherry, anise, dark-roasted coffee, clove and lavender. Supple, well-knit tannins give firmness to the finish, which features a note of star anise."
