  • 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

2009 shaped up as another high quality year in the Adelaide Hills. The early growing season had great, mild, cool conditions, a great start for quality. A very cool December caused a reduction in the grape berry size and number. Consequently our yields were down from 2008 by about 20%. This tended to promote increased flavor and concentration in the fruit we did harvest. In January, a 5 day heat wave came upon us. Due to the delayed fruit development and excellent canopies we had no damage to existing yields or quality. Cooler conditions after this maximized ripeness and flavour development.

This wine is made with no oak and no MLF allowing the zesty varietal characters of the grape to be expressed. The nose is a myriad of fresh ripe tropical fruit aromas which are vibrant, but not overpowering. The palate is fresh and retains medium to high natural mouth watering acidity. This wine is great drinking with seafood, salads, sushi and Asian cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"The '09 Groom Sauvignon Blanc is classic Adelaide Hills style, with herb, gooseberry and grass characters on both the bouquet and palate; has good balance and length."
