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 color goes from pale straw yellow with green highlights to pale gold. Strong aromas of apple, aromatic herbs and tropical fruits. Full minerally and almost salty on the palate, it is very eloquent in its deep, mouthfilling finish.

Perfect for antipasti, and shellfish based dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright straw-yellow with a green tinge. Highly spicy, perfumed aromas of violet and ginger, with hints of lime and crushed stone. Lively, juicy, very fresh flavors are similar to the aromas and linger impressively on the persistent finish. Impressively balanced, complex and spicy, this kerner has sneaky concentration and great finishing lift and thrust. For those who think nothing but bad things about kerner, this is a must-try wine."
92 Points

"The 2010 Kerner Praepositus is a more textured, creamier wine that the Sylvaner Praepositus tasted alongside it. Layers of fruit caress the palate in this effortless, totally gracious white. Ripe peaches, apricots, sage, savory herbs and wild flowers are all woven together nicely."
