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

With its beautiful light golden straw color this refreshing Viognier offers aromas of honeydew melon, lychee nut, apricot and orange blossom. On the palate you will find flavors of white peach, Maui gold pineapple, crème brulee, vanilla and honeysuckle. This wine has great balance with fresh acidity that leads to a zesty finish!

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Viognier Santa Barbara is an inexpensive, tasty introduction to what Santa Barbara Viognier is all about. Abundant notes of tropical fruits, apricots, and white peaches emerge from this richly exuberant, fruity, round, generous, crowd-pleasing white wine. Consume it over the next year."
