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

Produced from Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Barossa Valley Shiraz this blend is a well balanced, full flavored wine. Herbaceous Cabernet notes together with full berry Shiraz characters compliment each other producing a blend with elegance and structure.

Critical Acclaim

""The 2005 The Formula Cabernet-Shiraz is a 50-50 blend. Purple/black in color, it has an enticing bouquet of violets, spice box, black currant and blackberry. Mouth-filling, ripe, and dense, this lengthy effort is also a great value. Small Gully Wines is a partnership between winemaker Stephen Black and vineyard owner Robert Bader. The portfolio is loaded with remarkable values that should strike a resonant chord in our difficult economy.""
