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

An intense floral nose with delicate notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom dance lightly across opulent aromas of freshly baked lemon tarts, dressed with rose petals. The combination of lower alcohol and bold acidity offers a refreshingly bold and somewhat unexpected brightness from the wine. Enjoy as an aperitif or with figs, cheeses or fruit tarts to end a memorable meal.

Every vintage I look forward to making this wine. It represents everything I love best about organic farming, bringing forward fresh, clean flavors. There aren't many wines that actually taste like the grape they're made from, but this is definitely one of them.

Critical Acclaim

"Good price for a zesty, sweet dessert wine. It’s a nice way to finish dinner over something with white and yellow fruit, vanilla and custard ingredients. Shows rich, honeyed orange, apricot and honey flavors, with tingly acidity."
