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

This deep red wine delivers aromas which are rich, bright and fresh, chock full of spicy berry fruits with hints of earthiness and cedary oak. A medium to full bodied wine with currants and plums in a fresh structured palate that finishes leaner with fine grainy tannins.

Enjoy this wine with pork loin, stuffed with wild mushroom and truffle served on creamy sweet potato.

Critical Acclaim

"Attractive colour and bouquet, with red and blue fruits providing a framework for gentle spices and a touch of the herbs of Provence; medium-bodied with a cedary edge, the fruit is concentrated and tightly wound, with a long, supple and fine-grained tannin conclusion; the regional touch of mint sits seamlessly with the fruit."

Learn About Redbank Map ItMap It

Redbank captures the rugged essence of Australia's High Country of North East Victoria as well as the collaborative spirit of the early Australian pioneers. A small, select "family" of grape growers have come together for a common effort to produce the premium fruit for the wines of Redbank. Vineyards which are lashed by blizzardly cold winter winds and buried in snow for part of the year emerge at harvest with grapes of the highest quality that enable the Redbank winemakers to produce superb cool climate wines, infused with plenty of hard work and humor.
