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

Reflects the typical qualities of Saar Riesling - great minerality and acidity that more than offsets the residual sugar, making the wine seem drier than other German Riesling Kabinetts.

It would pair perfectly with richer fowl, cream sauces, raw or cooked seafood dishes as well as a wide variety of cheeses, including aged cheeses. With its wonderful acidity, it also makes the perfect aperitif to jump-start a meal.

Critical Acclaim

"A strong showing for this entry-level offering from the Dr. Fischer estate on the Saar, with some funky passion fruit notes adding character to this creamy-textured, amply concentrated wine. Finishes off-dry, with lingering mineral notes. Hand-picked at kabinett-level ripeness, this is a great value.
