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

Bright, light staw color with crisp, golden highlights, this wine displays lime zest, nutmeg and quince on the nose with hints of lemon, clove and vanilla. It is lush and silky on the palate, with bright flavors of nectarine, acacia and tangerine fruit. The coolest vintage in 20 years brings out the minerality and tang in this vibrant, crisp Chardonnay. Nutty, spicy notes and rich stone fruit dominate this stylish wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The winery strikes a happy balance between richness and elegant austerity with this bone-dry offering. It's minerally and reserved, offering intriguing hints of apricots and tropical fruits, with notes of buttered toast and smoky vanilla of new oak that many Chardonnay lovers crave. Editors Choice."
