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

Sweet but not at all cloying; well-balanced and with an extremely refined fruitiness.

Excellent at the end of a meal with desserts or fruit (especially fruit salad). Also delicious with gelato, or just on its own as an accompaniment to conversation among friends.
