Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
THIS GIRL ROCKS IT!
Aromatic, smooth, vibrant and tasty. Think tangerine, pineapple wet stone, key lime, clove, and nectarine. Now stop thinking and start drinking.....'CAUSE KUNG FU GIRL KICKS ASS!
We love Riesling from Evergreen Vineyard in The Ancient Lakes area of Columbia Valley AVA.
"Vivid, distinctive and immensely appealing for its juicy Winesap apple, apricot and citrus flavors, finishing with zing to balance the sweetness. Drink now. 64,000 cases made."
Fruity & Smooth
Kung fu Girl Riesling kicks butt! Sorry couldn’t resist. Recently served this at a party and was a huge hit, wish I had more to serve. This wine is bursting with fruit yet still has the supple sweetness of an off-dry wine. Wine.com - I hope you plan to continue to stock this.
Everyone enjoys this wine - even us red wine drinkers. It's a riesling for non-riesling drinkers - but white wine folk always rave about it. and it's cheap!
