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 wine is mid plum in color. The nose shows intense dark cherry and spice overlayed savory oak with hints of violets. The palate is powerful and full flavored and is supported by minerally acid and fine-grained tannins that will ensure medium term cellaring. The wine finishes with a good persistence of flavor.

Critical Acclaim

"From the chilly Macedon Ranges above Melbourne, this cool-climate pinot has scents of black tea and bosky raspberry. It's complex, with touches of root vegetable in the flavor, the lovely texture suited to stewed wild duck or other game birds."
