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

Deep brick red with crimson tints. Layered and complex, the nose shows ripe plum fruits, coffee, and mocha with spicy French oak. Full flavoured, dense and strongly varietal, the palate is a combination of ripe plum fruits, spicy oak strength and integrated tannin. Rich and round with a long persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Shiraz Greens Vineyard, which emerges from the Vinevale sub-region of Barossa, was cropped at one ton of fruit per acre, aged in 100% new French hogsheads, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Representing the essence of the vineyard, and looking more like blood than wine, it possesses an inky/purple color as well as a beautiful bouquet of roasted meats, blackberries, cherries, and jus de viande, a brilliant mid-palate and finish, and a tremendously long, blockbuster mouthfeel that saturates the palate. Some tasters may feel it is too much of a good thing, but it is incredibly pure, brilliantly well-balanced, and will become more civilized with time in the bottle. It should easily keep for 20-25 years."
98 Points

"A terrific effort from two Barossa vineyards, one in Greenock and the other in Vinevale, this is wonderfully perfumed and floral on the nose, yet also peppery and fruity—in a word, complex. Ditto the flavors, which range from coffee to olive, chocolate to vanilla and berries to spice. All of these elements are tied together by a creamy, lush texture and a long, elegant and refined finish.
