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

Our 2009 Griva Sauvignon Blanc exhibits particularly bright gooseberry aromas with fresh grassy notes. The palate is lush with ripe tropical fruit flavors and grass, finishing with a crisp, refreshing acidity.

97% Griva Sauvignon Blanc 3% Griva Semillon
Our Griva Sauvignon Blanc was 100% stainless steel fermented at cool temperatures to enhance and protect the aromas and flavors of this unique vineyard. The Semillon was fermented in older neutral French oak barrels to add a note of richness and complexity.

Critical Acclaim

"A very beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, without any disagreeable green notes, although it does carefully tread the line. Shows the Arroyo Seco's crisp acidity, with tart, savory flavors of gooseberries, Meyer lemons and minerals. The addition of some Semillon seems to add fat to the bones. A great restaurant wine. "

To this end, he selected a mountain site in the Carmel Valley appellation to plant his Marinus Estate Vineyard. This site was chosen because of its unique joining of varied soils and sunny inland climate moderated by a marine influence - ideal conditions for the production of Bordeaux varietals.
