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

Dense red-purple. Perfumed concentration of blackberry, blueberry fruit and fragrant French oak. Rich and well structured. A layered complexity of dark fruit and smokey, savory French oak. Impressive texture of mouth-coating tannins that provide the framework for the richness and intensity of fruit. A powerful but restrained Barossan.

Critical Acclaim

"Dense but bright colour; has perfectly pitched blackberry, plum fruit and French oak on both the bouquet and medium- to full-bodied palate, with a very long finish."
95 Points

"Vivid purple. Strikingly complex aromas of blackcurrant, raspberry compote, violet, olive and Asian spices. Broad, palate-staining dark berry flavors are brightened by zesty minerals and pick up an exotic floral note with air. The mineral element gains strength with air and carries through a long, pure and sweet finish. I couldn't get this off my palate, but I didn't try very hard. "
94 Points

"The top cuvee is the 2006 Eligo Shiraz which spent 20 months in 66% new French oak hogsheads. Opaque purple-colored, it emits a fragrant, captivating nose of Asian spices, toasty oak, incense, blueberry, and licorice. Full-bodied and structured with the fruit to match, this packed effort will evolve for 5-7 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2026. 93+"
93 Points

"A big, burly, muscular expression of Barossa Shiraz, with mouthcoating tannins that frame rich flavors of chocolate, cedar, vanilla and just enough plummy fruit to support all of the new oak. Give this 3-4 years to integrate and mellow. Imported by Old Bridge Cellars."
