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

Petaluma Chardonnay is selected from seven distinguished vineyard sites in the Adelaid Hills sub-region of the Piccadilly Valley, that are twenty-five years old. A refined and minerally Chardonnay with nectarine flavors and texture typical of the very best vintages from Piccadilly.

The 2005 Petaluma Chardonnay is refined and has great minerality. Ripe nectarine and white peach aromas and flavours are complemented by gentle char from the barrel fermentation and lingering acid typical of cool vintages from the Piccadilly Valley. The extended yeast lees contact and Vosges oak combine to helphighlight this texture without imparting oiliness.

With a few years of age, this wine is tasting delicious! Chill down and drink up.

Critical Acclaim

"From founder/ winemaker Brian Croser’s last vintage, this is an excellent wine, balancing ripe peach and nectarine flavors with hints of vanilla and toasted hazelnuts. It’s richly textured and full-bodied, with a long finish redolent of custard and citrus."

If you like the taste of pickle with your chardonnay, then you'll love this. It's too bad, because the backdrop was a good, balanced flavor. But the weird, harsh top notes put me off.
