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

Deep crimson red with vibrant purple hues, the 2008 Bin 555 Shiraz shows a bouquet of lifted aromas of plum and blackberry supported by subtle spicy oak. On the palate, it is a rich, full-bodied wine showing intense berry fruit flavours; plums, dark cherries with lifted spice characters. The wine is soft and generous on the mid palate, with fine tannins and balanced with subtle oak nuances, all of which contribute to a finish of good persistence.

BIN 555 will reward medium term cellaring and complement most red meats, game and cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright hue; fruit and mocha oak on the bouquet come through well on the medium-bodied palate that has surprising structure, length, fruit, oak and tannins very well balanced. Screwcap."
