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 2007 vintage was a perfect, text-book growing season for white grapes. The resulting wines are richly textured, and especially full in the mid-palate, with great body, great extract and fine acidity. The blend that will become the Estate Chardonnay is really a selection of the most complete and correct barrels. The most extreme examples of Chardonnay will become Gallery, while the lightest wines will become the First Crush. The very best of the Chardonnays will then be separated into our Reserve and Estate.

This wine is treated to six months of French oak barrels and a regimen of battonage (stirring of the fine lees). This year the wine is very rich and concentrated. There is a complex array of the traditional apple, apple pie, and sweet pear aromas, along with a light citrus note. In the mouth, this wine is medium full, a delicious graham cracker, granny smith, and light baking spice, with a gorgeous, grippy and fresh finish.
