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 2007 Sauvignon Blanc has a fragrant, rather herbaceous nose infused with apple, elderflower, gooseberry and wild hedgerow. Good intensity and what you might describe as a quintessential Sauvignon Blanc bouquet. The palate is well-balanced with good acidity with notes of lime, apricot and citrus fruits and very good delineation on the crisp, focused finish. An excellent Sauvignon Blanc from the top drawer."

"Pale yellow. Aromas of green tropical fruits, peppercorn and dusty stone. Rich, tactile and fairly mouthfilling, showing more stone and herbal character than primary fruit. But there's also a subtle sweetness here and a lingering, smooth finish. Grown-up and rather idiosyncratic sauvignon blanc."
