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

The name Woodcutter's stems from David Powell's several years spent working the Scottish Highlands as a lumberjack in the Torbreck forest. This wine reflects the up & coming Shiraz vineyards of the Barossa, rather than the battle hardened old vines which make up the core of our other cuvées.

Dense, rich and opulent, this wine combines great fruit puritywith texture, complexity and finesse. It is elegant, structured and powerful and is a fantastic introduction to the Torbreck range. While offering immense pleasure in its youth, the 2010 Woodcutter's Shiraz will no doubt develop into an impressive wine with a few years in the cellar.

Critical Acclaim

"Very deep purple-black colored, the 2010 Woodcutters Shiraz is a little reduced to begin, giving way to youthful aromas of black fruits, blueberry and blackberry preserves with underlying cassis, chocolate, nut and licorice hints. Full and rich, this mouth-filling wine is well supported by medium to firm velvety tannins and lively acid, lending texture and freshness through the long finish. Drinking nicely now, it should keep to 2016. "
91 Points

"Ripe and generous, glowing with blueberry and plum fruit that plays against savory black olive and charred meat notes. Lingers easily on the polished finish. Drink now through 2017. "
