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

Deep red with inky hues, this medium bodied wine is bursting with aromas of spicy black pepper with apricot notes. On the palate the wine shows soft warm characters and fnishes with rich fruit flavors.

The grapes for this wine were sourced from Angove's own Nanya vineyard and from premium growers in the Murray Valley (Riverland Region) of South Australia, 150 miles northeast of Adelaide.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep ruby-red. Peppery dark berry and floral aromas smell more syrah than shiraz. Jammy blackberry and blueberry flavors provide good palate coverage and betray no rough edges. Spicy and well-focused on the persistent finish, with the sweet dark berry notes repeating. On the sweet side but this will satisfy fans of big, assertive shiraz."

This was my first dabble in shiraz/viognier blend and was pleased. Wine was well balanced and it went down smooth.
