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

Layers is crafted to illustrate our belief that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Don't be fooled by this wine's easy drinking and approachable nature. The blend of three classic Barossa red varieties (Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre) and two new ones (Tempranillo, Carignan), create a multi-dimensional wine with beautiful aromas of dark plum, chocolate, and savory black olive while the palate is a soft mouthful of forest fruits with mild bramble undertones. It's a quintet of a blend in perfect harmony!

Blend: Shiraz 41%, Mourvèdre 20%, Tempranillo 19%, Grenache 17% and Carignane 3%

Critical Acclaim

"A gulpable blend of five varieties (Shiraz, Mouvedre, Tempranillo, Grenache and Carigan), this is a medium-bodied wine reminiscent of cherries and cedar. A bit of crispness on the finish accents the otherwise lush feel. Drink now."
89 Points

"Shiraz makes up 41 percent of this blend, accompanied by mourvedre, tempranillo, grenache and a small portion of carignane. It's rustic with scents of thyme and saddle leather, the mineral tannins guiding sweet strawberry fruit through the finish. For slow-smoked beef ribs."
