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

On the nose the wine shows spice, violets, vanilla and dark cherry. The palate is rich with berry and cherry flavors with hints of smoke, spice and savoury notes. The French oak imparts a gentle vanilla pod flavour and the silky but firm grape tannins are well integrated. The wine has great balance, length and structure and will age well.

Critical Acclaim

"The husband-and-wife team of Mike and Claire Allen have turned out 2,000 cases of this terrific value, which delivers authentic Pinot Noir complexity at an attractive price. Bold black cherry fruit carries subtle herb, twig and vanilla shadings with aplomb, while the texture turns velvety on the lengthy fnish. Drink now -2017."
