Wine Style Guide

Light & Crisp

Light to medium bodied wines that are high in acid and light to medium fruit. Typically no oak.

Fruity & Smooth

Light to medium bodied wines with lots of juicy fruit, typically medium acid and medium oak.

Rich & Creamy

Full bodied wines that have typically undergone malo-lactic fermentation and/or spent time in oak.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

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

This crisp, zesty Sauvignon Blanc hails from the cool coastal area of Constantia. The racy bottling displays textbook flavors of gooseberry and lime, with grassy, herbal undertones and elegant notes of mineral and chalk. This wine makes a great match for grilled or pan-seared fish dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"This has good cut, with citrus peel, chive and sea salt notes that stay racy on the light-weight finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases imported."

Learn About South Africa

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
