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

Crisp and mouthwatering offering pear, apricot, lime and apple streaked with notes of oregano, tarragon, and hints of vanilla and honey. The vivid citrus and tropical fruit flavors are delicately wrapped in a rich and generously-textured mouthfeel. Mature acids hold the wine's structure and create length, while a touch of scrumptious cinnamon toast note lingers in the elegant finish.

Blend: 98% Chardonnay, 2% Sauvignon Blanc

Critical Acclaim

"For the last few years, Artesa has produced one of the best Chardonnays in its price tier in all of California. Once again, they've hit the sweet spot with the 2010. It’s rich and creamy, with orange, pineapple, crème brûlée and buttered toast flavors."

This is an excellent chardonnay. It's light and bright golden in color. It has citrus and apple smell. There's no trace of oak at all. It very crisp and refreshing on the first sip and it finishes very smoothly. For the price, this is hard to beat.

too sweet for me - nothing wrong with the wine, just the typical mango, pinapple tropical chardonnay from Napa - look for something else...
