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 Chardonnay, grown on Mudgee's high altitude climate and ancient red-brown earth, was produced in our modern winery with the best of traditional winemaking techniques – giving an aromatic and fruit-driven wine with structure and minerality at the core.

Critical Acclaim

"Light, bright colour; as much in the modern style as is the Margaret River Chardonnay, but of course, has a very different flavour profile, with stone fruit and honeydew melon to the fore. It does share the same restraint and elegance, particularly with its oak handling."
93 Points

"Polished, lively and appealing for its sunny pear, cream, vanilla and lychee flavors, which slide smoothly through the long, elegant finish. Drink now through 2016. 7,000 cases made."

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...
