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

Full nose showing tropical passion fruit, pineapple and stone fruits with some green apple and just a touch of fresh grass in the pungent style that defines Marlborough. An outstanding intensity on the palate explodes with refreshing lemon-lime and tropical fruits enhanced by well-balanced acidity and finishing with a long, clean finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Driven by bold pineapple and passion fruit aromas, this medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc boasts a smooth mouthfeel and silky texture."
