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 vintage has sweet berry and black cherry notes with a touch of mocha spice to the bouquet and complex vanillin oak with some smokey overtones. The major accent is on complexity and finesse which will develop wonderful secondary characters over the next 5-7 years. This wine has fragrant ripe berries and some chocolate and savory smokey elements. The palate has a young but fine tannin structure, good mid palate richness and a sweet cedar menthol finish that will evolve with age.

Critical Acclaim

"It may be the Penley second label, but it marks a return to top form for Penley Estate. The bright red-purple colour is a good start to a 52%/48% blend of estate-grown fruit, underwriting a substantial medium- to full- bodied palate, with blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, plentiful tannins and 36% new oak, all contributing to the length and balance of a wine with a minimum 7-year future."
91 Points

"Blended of 52% Shiraz and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2009 Condor Shiraz Cabernet presents a deep garnet-purple color and aromas of mint, cassis, warm blackberries and spice box over hints of chocolate and licorice. Full bodied, richly fruited and very minty in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of finely grained tannins, crisp acid and a long finish."
