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

Very pale green gold in colour. The nose is delicate, fragrant with gooseberry, feijoa fruit, tropical hints and freshly cut grass. Sweet fruit with ripe gooseberry flavours; kiwi fruit and herb nuances are displayed on the crisp palate. Good structure, balance and length.

Critical Acclaim

"Clean, fresh aromas of citrus blossom and passionfruit; builds nicely on the palate and fruit-driven finish. Screwcap."
94 Points

"Fresh, lively and compelling for its range of pear, grapefruit and mineral flavors and for the generosity of its finish. The flavors hang around a long time."
90 Points

"The 2007 Coralinga Sauvignon Blanc was tank fermented and aged. Light straw-colored, on the nose it offers plenty of baking spices, apple, and citrus. On the palate it is crisp and Sancerre-like with vibrant acidity, ripe flavors, and a fruit-filled finish. "
