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

Tropical fruit, lime and hints of vanilla form an alluring bouquet in our Chardonnay that is enhanced by just the right amount of minerality. Juicy citrus and peach flavors pair with a refreshingly crisp acidity, making the creamy texture of this wine a real reward, especially with its long, bright finish.
