Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 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 straw green. Bouquet is refreshingly intense concentration of citrus, tropical fruits and fragrant fresh summer herbs, underpinned by an appealing degree of minerality. Generous full bodied wine displaying an excellent balance of fruit and acidity with a fine citrus infused finish, a portion of indigenous ferment adding depth and richness.

Pairs well with seafood – especially oysters, scallops and mussels, but also salads, white meats and mild cheeses. Cellaring Ideally enjoyed young, but may be cellared for several years.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright pale yellow. Knockout, varietally expressive nose offers musky grapefruit peel, lemon, orange, tangerine, anise, pepper and tarragon. Densely packed and penetrating, with superb definition to the flavors of lemon, grapefruit, licorice and peppery herbs. A floral element gives added lift to the middle palate. Really pristine and uncompromising on the very long, spicy finish. Conveys outstanding energy and yet this beauty is pliant rather than hard. "
92 Points

"20% of Dog Point's 2010 Sauvignon Blanc was naturally fermented. It offers expressive notes of fresh grapefruit, lemon zest, kumquat and under-ripe pineapple with hints of bay leaf, fennel seed and baking bread. Medium bodied with a wonderful concentration of citrus, tropical and spice flavors, it gives a great backbone of refreshing acidity and a long yeasty finish. Drink it now to 2014. "
