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 2005 Mangan's bouquet is an extraordinary combination of rich blackberry, blackcurrant and fig aromas. The palate is complex and substantial with rich dark cherry, blackberry and coffee flavors backed by firm tannins. Drink now or cellar for fifteen years to garner additional complexity.

Critical Acclaim

"A powerful, very youthful wine; all the components are in flavour and structure balance, but need further time to knit; another long-lived wine in the making."
