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

The 2012 Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling is a classic example of dry Eden Valley Riesling. A pale straw with green hues, the wine shows intense fruit aromas of talcum, crushed stone and lemon lime fruit, with a hint of overlaying dried herb. The palate shows great length and depth with lime, a hint of white flowers and fresh rosemary. The wine finishes with a fresh natural acidity that balances the flavor intensity and a minerality that will reward medium to long-term cellaring.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and inviting, tangy and appealing, with green apple and peppermint flavors, lingering on the refreshing finish."

Pewsey Vale is truly great in that it presents great fruit as a dry riesling but still has a tremendous bouquet with immense complexity on an expansive finish. The fresh and crips acidity makes this a winner with practically any meal. Awesome stuff.
