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

Hand picked grapes are collected in baskets prior to sorting, pneumatic pressing and clarification of the must, fermentation partially in oak barrels and partially in steel tanks.

The color is pale yellow, with peaches and honey on the nose. The palate is rounded and rich, full bodied with a balanced freshness and floral notes.

Critical Acclaim

"This refreshing, mineral-laced, delicious white is lighter than the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet Blanc, which continues to "rock and Rhone." Made from the same blend, this 13,000 bottle cuvee offers up notes of lychee nuts, orange marmalade, honeysuckle, lavender, quince and crushed rocks. Stunningly rich and full-bodied, it is a more viscous style of wine than the 2010. The 2010 will have greater longevity, but the 2009 is sumptuous at present. Best drunk in its first 4-5 years of life. "
