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

Intense lifted mineral and fresh herb characters on the nose. The palate is well structured and elegant; intense mineral characters, with layers of black currant, nettle and wet stone with a lingering zesty citrus finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright and focused, offering a lively mouthful of pear, grapefruit and floral aromas and flavors on a juicy frame, finishing with finesse. Drink now. 75,000 cases made."

OK white. Nose was unmemorable and mainly used the rest for cooking.
