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

The 2008 season, with long warm summer days and cool nights, produced fruit with ideal ripeness and sugar balance.

Lifted strawberry and red cherry fruit with gamey notes. Complimented with subtle vanillin oak. Good structure and persistence with great depth of fruit and savory notes on the finish. This wine has been fermented in open fermenters with regular plunging. Part fermentation in aged French oak barrels was also included in the winemaking process.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright hue; while light-bodied, has a complex array of aromas and flavours, the palate offering red fruits and a contrasting touch of quasi-citrus, giving a tangy finish. Screwcap."

Never had wine from Australia but me and my fiance went to the Pasadena wine festival and tried some. We both feel in love with this wine. Its sweet, great for both "light weights" and drinkers a like.

This wine sounded better on paper then it tasted in the glass. It seemed very watered down with a bit of a bite. Not fun to drink, really like having some warm grape juice. Based on the reviews and descriptions I thought I'd really enjoy it but I was just disappointed.
