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

Blend: 70% Shiraz, 25% Grenache, 5% Viognier

Big, bold and beautiful! The Aussie Salute is a blend of succulent Shiraz, spicy Grenache and a whiff of aromatic Viognier - a feisty combination that works wonders on the palate. Rich, fragrant and inviting, this wine expresses blackberry, plum, currant and black pepper notes.

Made with structure and grip, the vibrant, juicy length lingers with a "have another glass" finish. Drink now or hide in the cellar for 3 years.

Food pairings: Spinach salad with goat cheese and dried cherries; penne pasta with feta, peppers and sausage; soy-ginger flank steak with grilled eggplant.

"A blend of Shiraz (70%), Grenache (25%) and Viognier (5%), this is a lush, weighty red imbued with earhty flavors of espresso, olives and dark-skinned plums that linger on the finish. The creamy texture makes it go down easy; pair it with grilled or roasted meats." 89 Points,
Wine Enthusiast
