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

Clear, amber colour with golden highlights and a tint of green at the edge. Characteristic bouquet of Madeira with notes of wood, toffee, vanilla and dried fruits. Full bodied, medium dry and smooth, very well balanced with a long and warm aftertaste.
