  • 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

The wine in the glass is bright straw yellow with green tints. Lifted floral, pineapple and guava aromas are mixed with a strong presence of petrichor (smell of rain hitting dry earth). This is complemented by notes of honeydew melon and brown lime. The wine has a strong presence on the palate with an intense acid backbone and flavours of fresh papaya, yellow peach, cumpuat and feijoa.

Critical Acclaim

"From a single vineyard planted in 1979, this release is one of the finest to date. It boasts great fruit purity of mandarin and lime on the nose, mirrored on the zesty, mineral, bone-dry palate that’s lifted by tropical fruit. Super.
Drink 2014–2025"
94 Points

"Fresh, crisp and vibrant, showing expressive nectarine, lime and spice flavors that float through the tight finish with elan. features depth and intensity on a tight frame. Drink now through 2020."
