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

Subdued fruit on the nose that explodes on the palate. Full of complex leathery fruit flavours. Wonderful balanced tannins match the intense fruit. Great length. A truly fine wine.

Fruity and juicy red with medium body and lingering finish; hints of mineral; a decent house wine.
