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 wine is a lustrous crimson color. Richly defined aromas of red berry, dark cherry, and blackberry are complimented on the palate with generous flavors of juicy dark fruits. The palate is enhanced with savory characteristics of olive, cassis and brown spice. Subtle and deft oak handling has ensured the flavors are supported but not overwhelmed by oak character, only contributing to the fine structure of the wine. The regional varietal characters of the Limestone Coast Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon compliment each other and combine to create an outstanding medium bodied classic Australian blend.

Critical Acclaim

"The fruit for the 2008 Limestone Coast Shiraz Cabernet is sourced from Mt. Benson, Robe, Coonawarra and Padthaway. Blended of 64% Shiraz and 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, it gives a very deep garnet purple color and pronounced blackberry and blackcurrant notes with some chocolate, mint and Mediterranean herbs. The concentrated, full bodied palate is well structured with high acidity and a medium level of grainy tannins, finishing long and fruity. Drink it now to 2014. "
