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

Fruit for this wine was sourced predominantly from the Great Southern (40%), with 20% coming from each of the Pemberton, Blackwood and Geographe regions in the south west of Western Australia. Vines are predominantly vertically trained, irrigated to maintain healthy canopies, growing on predominantly well drained loam soils.

Lifted grassy and gooseberry notes with pronounced citrus blossom, lemon rind overtones. Fragrant, clean and inviting. A supple juicy mid palate, delicious racy lemon and grapefruit flavors with a minerally counterpoint. Lovely balance, harmonious and round but finishing with crisp clean finish and lovely long flavors. Drink now to enjoy its freshness.

Critical Acclaim

"Clean, vibrant citrus flavors bring out the sauvignon element of this blend, ripe peach notes layering orange and lime. Semillon adds fullness, along with stony leesiness. Together they form a lithe and refined white, an exciting wine made more so by it's price. "
92 Points

"Aromas of fresh cut grass, with a touch of citrus are offered on the bouquet; clean, varietal fruit with real persistence to the very fresh, clean finish."

I used to be a Semillon fan. More recently Sauvignon Blancs. I thought this would catch the best of both my interests, but it was not the miracle blend I had hoped for.

Some of these are the most popular: New South Wales - home to Sydney and other tourist destinations, New South Wales has a smaller focused wine growing region, but many wines are a blend of these smaller appellations and so are deemed New...

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
