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

This wine celebrates our journey in life and our partnership in winemaking. Just as we use our separate abilities to enhance our winemaking, we blend the separate characters of these two classic varieties to create a wine that is powerful, opulent, elegant and seamless.

When you join the Enchanted Path and the Carnival of Love together, the two labels form one beautiful continuous love story.

The grapes were grown on the Gateway and Prime vineyards in McLaren Vale. A Shiraz and Cabernet blend.

Pairs with pan-fried Atlantic salmon with honey and parsley, veal saltimbocca and roasted chicken

Critical Acclaim

"A blend of 66% Shiraz and 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2009 Enchanted Path was matured in 97% American and 3% French oak, 85% new and 15% one year. Very deep garnet-purple, it has a great intensity of cassis, blackberry, violet and eucalypt aromas with a whiff of coffee. Crisp in the full-bodied mouth, it has medium-firm very finely grained tannins, finishing long. The tight-knit palate suggests it should have more to give in 18-24 months, drinking to 2019+."
93 Points

"Broad and generous, with a sandy, spicy edge to the red cherry, blackberry and tar flavors, persisting with real elegance on the long, focused finish. Drink now through 2013. 2,008 cases made. "
