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

Upon release this wine was almost water-white in the glass. The color will slowly deepen with age

A melange of gooseberry, passionfruit, and nectarine backed with hints of herbaceousness and a touch of sweat.

One aspect of this wine that will set it apart from its peers is the sheer weight of flavor that it has. It has richness and texture and a finish that goes on and on.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and open-textured, playing its herb and lime character against green apple and pear fruit. This is appealing for its detail and finesse. Drink now."
