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

The Shiraz from this region is not one to deliver big sweet fruits; the style resembles a more European flavor, which can be attributed in part to the cool climate. This brings clarity of fruit and earthy characters to the wine. It shows bright fruit on the nose and palate, enhanced by natural spiciness and background oak

Critical Acclaim

"Plum, black cherry, spice and pepper attesting to a cool climate; silky, supple texture with fine-grained tannins and quality oak."
