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

The initial impression on first picking up the glass is one of fine, subtle ripeness; fruit aromas of super ripe gooseberry and yellow grapefruit with fleeting overtones of white blossom florals. With time in the glass and a generous swirl, the fruitier elements are given greater depth and complexity by signature greener notes of asparagus and dried herb. Plump and round in the mouth with a desirably smooth texture and fine juicy acids; flavors mirror those of the nose with enhanced by a slightly tropical twist. The finish is clean and fresh.

Style: Light & Crisp
This is a nice crisp Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. It has a number of the typical NZ attributes, including some grassiness, but does not have the nuances of "cat pee" that some others have. On the nose there is a nice dose of grapefruit, and a hint of other citrus fruits. Very soft in the mouth and finishes with a good dose of acidity. A great bargain, and my 2 case purchase will never survive the summer. What a great everyday sipper!

Learn About Nine Walks

The creation of Nine Walks Sauvignon Blanc was inspired by The 9 Great Walks of New Zealand, one-of a kind walking and hiking trails unsurpassed in their natural beauty and ability to transport you to a more peaceful, balanced state of mind.

Grapes for Nine Walks were grown in the Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley sub-regions of Marlborough, NZ. The fruit from the Wairau Valley delivers the more tropical & herbaceous elements, while the fruit from the Awatere Valley provides a more mineral–infused and restrained streak that gives Nine Walks its distinct texture and palate weight.
