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

This varietal comes from the Northern Rhône Valley in France. Presumed to have arrived from Dalmatia and transported to the Rhone 1,700 years ago by Romans. There are only 2,000 acres of this variety in California at this time. Viognier is known for its perfumed aromas and ripe fruit flavors.

Cline Viognier shows big pineapple, peach and apricot flavors mixed with citrus and floral notes. This full-bodied flavorful wine is an excellent match for Mediterranean stews, Thai curry and spicy Mexican dishes.

As the reviewer before me said, this isn't a very complex wine. However, for the price, it is wonderful. Drink this one super cold, if it's too warm it's too sweet. My sister, who only likes Reisling, likes this one. It's a nice crowd pleaser because it is slightly sweet, but not too much so. Drink with seafood, cream-based dishes, and salads.

It's hard to find inexpensive Viognier, being it's such a difficult grape to grow, but Cline does an admirable job, creating a wine that has bold Viognier flavors, like peach, apricot and floral notes. Not super complex, but a wonderful wine for the price and a great spicy food match. Always a winner in the store.
