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

Our Doña Paula Estate Torrontés has an attractive golden yellow color. Intense and delicate jasmine, white acacia, white rose petals, and orange blossom notes can be perceived. In the mouth, it feels fresh and lovely, with a perfect balance of acidity and freshness and a persistent floral aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright, light medium yellow. Pungent aromas of orange peel, cinnamon, rose petal and flowers; I was reminded of a dry gewurztraminer. Supple and aromatic in the mouth, with ripe acidity giving a light touch to the dense flavors of pineapple syrup and rose petal. A bit soft in the middle but firm and perfumed on the back end, which features good citrus lift and grip. Less exotic than the 2009 version. Argentina's most intriguing white wine makes for a lovely warm-weather aperitif."

This is by far one of the BEST white wines I have tasted. Full of flavor, crisp, light taste of grapefruit, a little oak. Just yum!
