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 Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of grapefruit and lime underpinned by a chalky mineral complexity. The palate is finely textured with gooseberry, zesty citrus and mineral flavours combined with a slight creaminess. A firm acidity helps to draw out the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Organic/biodynamic practices in the three estate vineyards picked between 6th and 25th April, the grapes whole-bunch pressed, 80% fermented with wild yeast, 15% in aged French barriques and 5% semillon, all in all providing 29 separate blend components. Now draw breath. The wine is as complex and intense as one might expect, particularly on the aftertaste. Drink to 2013."
94 Points

"Succinctly crisp, clean and refreshing, offering lime peel, gooseberry and grapefruit flavors,with a hint of fresh ginger on the finish. Powerful in its focus. Drink now. "
