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

Crafted from the fruit of some of South Africa's oldest Pinotage vines, this benchmark bottling is a true Cape classic! Alluringly complex and distinctive, it boasts juicy layers of dark berries, cassis and plum intertwined with hints of bacon and mocha and a smoky, minerally undercurrent.

Critical Acclaim

"This softer style Pinotage is a benchmark for the variety from a producer who has helped put the wine on the map. The nose is a melding of plum, cherry, spice and black currant, and on the palate, mocha, plum, spice and cherry mingle, Soft, rich and integrated, it still has the spicy vigor of a true Pinotage. "

This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
