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

This Shiraz Viognier wine is full depth red in colour with purple hues, and shows violet, wild berry and dark cherry aromas, meaty and spicy with black pepper hints. The palate is medium- to full-bodied with beautifully defined fruit, juicy right in the middle with a long, intense and elegant palate with black espresso-like tannins to finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep in colour; a heady mix of black fruits, roasted meat, liquorice and thyme; the palate is thickly textured, full of gravelly tannins and toasty oak; long, rich and supple on the finish."
95 Points

"A consistent performer, Yalumba's Hand Picked Shiraz-Viognier seems slightly bigger and chunkier in 2008 than in the past, with bold fruit - blueberries and blackberries - accented by hints of mint. Expect some savory notes to develop over the next couple of years in bottle."
92 Points

"The 2008 Hand Picked Shiraz / Viognier contains 4% Viognier. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives intense black cherry and blackberry fruit with some chocolate, a bit of toast and some dusty earth. There’s a touch of oak on the medium to full-bodied palate, with a good amount of fruit, medium-firm fine-grained tannins and a long mocha laced finish. Drink this one now to 2016."
