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

These grapes come from a single vineyard in Wrattonbully, located on the southern edge of the Limestone Coast just west of Coonawarra.

This wine displays juicy, ripe, soft tannins with notes of menthol and eucalyptus. Flavors are of mulberries and other dark fruits, plus all the "extra vinous" sought after complexities, such as tobacco leaf.

Critical Acclaim

"A reliable offering over the past few vintages, this is a medium- to fullbodied Cabernet brimming with cedar, plum and mocha. It's muscular enough to pair with steak, or to cellar for a couple years."
