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

Light yellow in color with greenish hues and brilliant clarity. An aromatic bouquet of gooseberry balanced by ripe tropical fruit aromas of pineapples and passionfruit. Drylands Sauvignon Blanc displays the quintessential Marlborough qualities of rich, ripe tropical fruit and citrus flavours. The palate has luscious weight and complexity, lingering in a crisp, refreshing finish. A fantastic aperitif or as an accompaniment to light seafood and poultry dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"This silky white has a distinctive peppery note weaving through its pear and lime flavors, lingering easily and even delicately. Drink now."
