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

Produced from what are amongst the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the Yarra Valley, this wine is poised, intensely perfumed, and voluptuous brimming with flavors of sweet strawberry/plum richness, anise, and beetroot. While richly textured, the tanins are silky, round, and mouthfilling to the end. This well balanced Pinot Noir has the rare ability to gain from bottle age in proper cellaring conditions rather than diminish.

Critical Acclaim

"A lovely young pinot; aromatic and spicy, with fine tannins and tremendous length."
95 Points

"Yarra Valley (and neighboring Mornington Peninsula) may be Australia’s prime spots for Pinot Noir and Yarra Yering’s 2006 Pinot Noir does not disappoint. Medium ruby-colored, it offers up a super-expressive bouquet of smoke, spice box, roses, black cherry, and raspberry. Silky on the palate, it is intense and full-flavored while remaining elegant. Its flawless balance should allow it to blossom for several more years and drink well through 2018. "
92 Points

"Vivid red. Strong red and dark berry aromas are complicated by rose, dark chocolate, herbs and smoky minerals; this is Burgundian in its interplay of fruit, minerals and earth. Suave, sweet raspberry and blackcurrant flavors coat the palate and are energized by brisk minerals. Gains sweetness with air and finishes with a late jolt of bitter blood orange. I really like the mix of depth and energy that this wine offers."
