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

Fleshy tropical melon, guava, ripe gooseberry aromas leap from the glass in the first instance, followed by the more elegant refined herbaceous ripe green smells of fresh fennel, tomato leaf, coriander and nettles, all bundled together with citrus lime to deliver the full aromatic spectrum of what "great" Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc can offer. The palate is intense, soft and inviting with succulent crunchy acidity and delivers line with salty sinewy phenolics giving structure and textural weight – Another remarkable Wither Hills "Wairau Valley" Sauvignon Blanc!

A perfect match with plump oysters, green lip mussels, even prosciutto and rock melon. Or simply on the deck with great company and repartee.
