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

Light straw color with green tinges.

The wine has lifted aromas of green capsicum and dried herbs. Vibrant and juicy showing bright acidity and a lingering crisp dry finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright and fresh, juicy and clean with herbs, spice and racy citrus; deep, complex and bursting with fruit; long, complex and balanced. "
