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

A very floral, fruity, and surprisingly rich Gris! This wine has flashy gardenia and jasmine flowers upfront, with pink grapefruit, lychee, pineapple, and fresh peach in its fruit-basket. The palate is pretty and mouth-filling, with layers of sweet fruit, slate, tangy acid and an amazing breadth and length that lingers after the wine is gone. A great pair for Thai food!

Blend: 100% Pinot Gris

Critical Acclaim

"Leading with scents of yeast, green apple and citrusy lemon zest, this wine's richness is complemented by that lemony flavor, which builds into the middle palate, the finish mouthwatering, racy and clean."
