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

A delicate wine originating from our cool climate vineyards. The 2006 Cliff Edge Shiraz is now showing terrific fruit intensity, red fruit flavors, complex spice characters and balanced tannins. Excellent balance of finesse and depth, this wine points the way for Cliff Edge Shiraz in terms of finely structured palate and fruit intensity.

Critical Acclaim

"Similar in many ways to Billi Billi, but with a riper fruit spectrum and much more juicy plum and spice fruit on the finish; controlled oak too."
94 Points

"Not only is this a great value, but it exhibits completely diffferent character from many of its competitors. It starts off smoky, then adds raspberry fruit and builds layers of savory complexity on top, culminating in a finish that features crisp berry flavors and tapenade. Full bodied and intense, with moderate tannins."
