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

TIC TOK Shiraz comes from the home ranch in Mudgee - it has everything you want in a glass of red wine. Sumptuous and velvety this wine has complexity and some spicy characteristics. Berries, plums, baking spices and a touch of mocha on the lasting firm finish. This well rounded Shiraz would be perfect when you are grilling up a great steak and you need a great wine.

Critical Acclaim

"a decent value, the 2009 Tic Tok Shiraz is medium bodied and easy to drink. The blackberry fruit is easily accessible, accented by hints of vanilla, pepper and clove, while the texture is supple. Drink now."
88 Points

"Showing zip and balance to the ripe flavors, this offers cherry and spice character on a medium frame, finishing nicely. Drink now. "
87 Points

"Light colour, although the hue is good; a light- to medium-bodied wine, with pleasant red and black fruits, a touch of oak and a balanced finish"
