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

Pale straw in color streaked with green hues. Herbal elements of sage and mint are balanced by lime and passionfruit aromatics. A subliminal hint of vanilla and cream provide the added complexity. The palate's rich core of fruit is tempered by citrus-like acidity lending balance and freshness.

Suggested as an aperitif or servied with fresh salads.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale yellow. Lemon, pineapple and peach aromas lifted by pungent herbs, white pepper and flowers. A concentrated bomb of yellow fruits in the mouth, but kept firm by brisk, harmonious acidity. Finishes broad and long, with a chalky character contributing to an impression of dryness. Serious sauvignon blanc. "

In time, as the vines mature on their own estates, the wines of Craggy Range Winery will without doubt express their origin and the commitment and skill of their people.
