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

Garrida's blend of 50% Tinta Roriz and 50% Touriga Nacional is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. This wood treatment lends the wine a fuller body, but still allows its fruity character to show through.

The Quinta da Garrida Vinho Tinto is dark red in color. On the nose, notes of licorice, plum and prune are followed by hints of smoke. This wine is appealing and sweet, well balanced and attractive with a long finish in the mouth. Ideal with mushroom risotto with parmesan.

Critical Acclaim

"A blend of Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz, with big, dusty tannins, ripe new wood and black, jammy fruit. The exuberance is held in check by minerality, but the final effect is of a ripe, satisfying wine, the spicy new wood showing strongly."
