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

This dry wine is the best of all worlds with a flowery nose, creamy texture and a crisp palate. It is our Washington interpretation of the classic Bordeaux white wine in three part harmony. Full of apricot, grapefruit, lemon, lanolin and honey, it is complete. It is made and aged in concrete tank, stainless steel tank and mature Burgundy oak barrels.

Blend: 61% Semillon, 21% Sauvignon, 18% Muscadelle

Critical Acclaim

"This shows a darker shade than most young whites, almost a burnished gold. Soft and complex, with ripe, slightly confected fruit flavors, it's super smooth, with honeysuckle highlights around waxy stone fruits. Excelent length.
Editors' Choice"
92 Points

"The components for Foster's 2010 Semillon, Sauvignon, Muscadelle – 61%, 21%, and 18% respective, from vines on the Wahluke Slope and Red Mountain – are spontaneously fermented and matured in old barriques, then transferred to concrete part-way through their maturation. Peach and lime are tinged with violet as well as musky narcissus and peony, almond extract and peach kernel serving for counterpoint both in the nose and on an animatedly juicy yet expansive and subtly waxen-textured palate. The tart, piquant cut of lime peel is prominent on entry while both the genuine refreshment and the richness of texture on offer here reveal themselves past the mid-palate."
