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 purple with blue black hues, this is a medium to full bodied wine which speaks of the essence of the region and the variety. Blackcurrant fruit aromas combine with mint and kaffir lime on the nose. On the palate these flavours are omplemented by the soft silky tannins and elegance demanded by Cabernet grown in Coonawarra. This wine will reward the patient with cellar potential for many years.

Critical Acclaim

"Good colour; very correct varietal expression courtesy of blackcurrant, and touches of sweet earth; excellent texture and mouthfeel; great value."

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
