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 classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows a mixture of citrus, capsicum and ripe tropical fruit aromas. These aromas carry onto the palate which is crisp, multi layered and has a long lingering finish – a very well balanced wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Soft and juicy, with mouthwatering balance to the pear and grapefruit flavors, hinting at pineapple as the finish goes on. Drink now."
