Fruity & Smooth

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

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 displays textbook aromas and flavors of green fig, gooseberry and lime. Grassy herbal notes are supported by elegant underpinnings of mineral and chalk.

Critical Acclaim

"This has all the notes of a racy, cut-filled Sauvignon Blanc, with distinctive Meyer lemon, kaffir lime, bitter grapefruit and gooseberry flavors, but it's allied to an underlying richness that lets flashes of persimmon and rosewater flash on the finish. Very long. Impressive. Drink now through 2014. "
91 Points

"Pale yellow. Raw pineapple, grapefruit zest, pepper and a whiff of gooseberry on the very pure nose. At once broad and penetrating; a serious young sauvignon with dominant flavors of pepper and minerals. The wine's fruit is currently in the background, but lovely ripe acidity and sneaky dusty length suggest that this will be better for another year or so of bottle aging."

At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
