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

Clean and bright, light yellow in color with rich and concentrated aromas of tasty pear, fig and toasty hazelnut. Marques de Casa Concha is a full bodied wine with distinct minerality and a core of ripe, opulent fig and pear flavor. This wine is big in the mouth, creamy with crisp acidity and a long, memorable finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This racy white delivers a solid core of Jonagold apple, melon and lemon verbena notes that ripple through the fresh, invigorating finish. Drink now through 2011"
90 Points

"Light gold, toasty oak, baking spices, hazelnuts, white peach, impeccable balance."
