Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
The Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache has a very expressive aroma full with layers of lush plum, blueberry coulis, currant confiture and mulled cherry notes. The palate is medium to full weighted Grenache that shows a fleshy core of steeped red berry fruit notes that weave through to a juicy mouth-watering finish. With ample tannins, all polished and embedded in the fruit.
"Kevin Galstonbury seems to have perfected the art of grenache, working with vines from 30 to 70 years old, destemming most lots, but fermenting others with their stems, allowing fermentation to being without adding yeast (a slow start that can build complexity in the wine), then inoculating half way through to finish the fermentation. The result is a fragrant 2012, the most appetite-inducing vintage of this wine we've tasted on release. It's a deep, strawberry-scented red with notes of tarragon and smoke. Rather than weighty with oak, this is clean, fresh and bright. It brings all sorts of foods to mind, from bacalao a la vizcaina to roast turkey with tarragon mashed potatoes. A by-the-case-buy.
Wine & Spirits
"On the lighter side, with a mix of red and black fruit in the profile, playing against an open texture and refined tannins on the harmonious finish."
