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

Pale green gold in color. The nose is lifted and intense with sweet fragrant florals, zesty limes/lemons, white currants and mineral notes. The crisp palate shows rich intense citrus flavors, good acidity and length.

Critical Acclaim

"Has the Henschke riesling stamp on both bouquet and palate; tighter and more intense than the Lenswood; similar generosity to the regional lime juice flavours. "
95 Points

"Julius is one of the top Rieslings from the Clare and Eden hills. In 2007, between the drought of the previous year and spring frosts, yields were down nearly 50 percent. An early harvest brought this riesling in with fully mature flavors and impressive density. The fragrance runs from Rainier cherry to lime, while the flavors tighten around an earthy, forest freshness. It's a potent young wine, clean, mouthwatering and lasting in its flavor. Cellar this at least six years from the vintage, then those flavors will begin to evolve."
92 Points

"Green-hued straw color. Nervy lime and pink grapefruit aromas are given depth by pear and melon qualities. Lively and focused, offering bracing citrus and mineral flavors and a late note of succulent herbs. Emphatically dry on the finish, which leaves a complex array of citrus, floral and herb notes behind. I'd put this away for at least five years to let it unfold and gain depth. Very promising stuff. "
91 Points

"Bright and refreshing, this classy wine delivers a lively mouthful of greengage plum, gooseberry and lime flavors that glide gently through the dry, refined finish. Drink now through 2013."
90 Points

"The 2007 Julius Riesling is medium straw-colored with an enticing perfume of floral notes, citrus, and a hint of petrol. Medium-bodied, intense, and vibrant, this well-balanced Riesling should evolve for several years and drink well through 2017. "
