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 is an attractive medium bodied and beautifully balanced Marlborough Pinot Noir with aromas of strawberries, blackcurrant and wild blackberries with lifted spices. Elegant and juicy with multi-layered fruit flavours, with a hint of spicy oak. This wine has fine structure and juicy acidity to give freshness culminating in a lingering finish.
