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

Some consider it to be most closely related to Riesling and believe the name "Albariño," stems from the phrase "white Rhine" in the local dialect of Gallego. Containing beautiful aromas of orange blossoms, green apples, freshly-cut pineapple, and stone fruit, the 2011 Fillaboa is crystalline straw-colored yellow in appearance. Soft on the palate, this wine exhibits a well balanced flavor profile that enhances its freshness and complexity. With well-integrated acidity, this wine is unctuous, soft and refined, culminating in a lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright yellow. Ripe pear and melon on the pungent nose and in the mouth. Fleshy and broad, with good depth and finishing cling. On the rich side for the variety but substantial enough to work with richer foods."
