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

The 2008 Chardonnay is a wine of great intensity, yet with elegance and balance. On the nose peach, pears, nectarine and other stone fruit dominate with a hint of lemon zest and smoky oak giving depth and intensity. The palate is supple, lively and vibrant and leads to a long, rich finish.
