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

Rich and intensely flavored wine. Classic fruit aromas of talcum, crushed stone and limes, with a hint of overlaying dried herb. The palate shows great length and depth with lemons and limes. The wine finishes with a soft but fresh natural acidity which balances the flavor intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"The bouquet has a very aromatic display of citrus blossom, the palate with delicious lime juice flavours backed by fine acidity; has considerable length. Screwcap."
94 Points

"Light and refreshing, with pinpoint pear, apple and grapefruit flavors, the fruit echoing on the beautifully formed finish. Drink now through 2019."
91 Points

"A superb buy for lovers of dry Riesling – Pewsey Vale's 2010 Eden Valley Riesling reveals intense aromas of warm grapefruit, spicy poached pears, apricots, acacia honey and jasmine. Dry, very crisp, medium bodied and concentrated in flavors, it has a long finish. It’s still a touch youthfully tight, so it is best approached 2012 to 2018+. "
91 Points

"Light scents of lemon-lime lead to rounder smoky flavors of kiwi and nectarine. This is a tangy, mineral-tinged oyster wine if you open it now. It is also suited to age."

Actually, 3.5 stars. Color, nice clean color. Nose, pear, green apple, a hint of grapefruit, and some flowers coming through. Midpalate, considerably dry, clean, crisp, not a light riesling. Finish, this wine has nice acidity, lingering, nice finish. I am 90 on this effort. Happy drinking!

A sweet and crispy drink. A bit too sweet for my regular preference, but still somewhat pleasant.
