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 Paringa Sparkling Shiraz has a saturated deep burgundy color with a crimson hue and an abundance of aromas that include fresh black current preserves, with dark strawberry and blackberry jam that are surrounded by underlying hints of butterscotch, menthol and spice. The palate is lively, refreshing and medium-bodied, comprising of sweet berry fruits, ripe plums and cassis, with hints of chocolate, molasses, caraway seed and fennel. The origin of the "fizz" has ensured that the grape's fresh, fruity character has been retained through to the finished wine. There is a perlage of fine bubbles that lifts the fruit and spice characters, ending with an attractive, long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Licorice-red in its scent and as bright as a lambrusco in flavor, this clean, slightly sweet sparkler would be a festive match for roast turkey. It brought memories of Adelaide summers to David Hawkins, who works in our tastings department, and recalls drinking sparkling shiraz with Christmas pudding.
