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

Color: Impenetrable black with a concession of purple at the rim.

Nose: Saturated dark fruit flavors of blackberry/ mulberry fuse with notes of dark chocolate, Ribena and licorice. The "chocolate" spike unfolds with air, revealing cocoa bean and cherry liqueur components.

The overt, aromatic contribution from the legendary, ancient Kalimna Block 42 vineyard offers soul, purity and character. The 100% new oak contribution is of academic interest only - it is completely absorbed.

Palate: The palate displays an oscillation and juxtaposition between a solid, assertive and muscular first impression, and later, an opulent, saturated and succulent demeanour.

Blackberry and loganberry fruit flavors glide across a supportive continuum of tannin and oak to reveal a profound synergy of Blackforest cake and bread & butter pudding flavors. What's promised on the nose is revealed on the palate - perceptions delivered.

Food pairings: Ideal with rare roast lamb cutlets.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
