  • 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

The 2010 vintage was distinguished by an exceptionally cool growing season which favored the development of the coveted 'ripe green' character in our fruit. Aromas and flavors of gooseberry, green fig, lemongrass, snap pea, chive, honeydew melon and lime abound and interplay with passionfruit and mineral notes. The lively acidity makes this an ideal summer aperitif and a delightful partner to oysters, shellfish, scallops and avocado, as well as a brilliant partner to spicy cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"One of the best unoaked Sauvignon Blancs on the market. Clean and briskly acidic, it shows complex lemongrass, Meyer lemon, orange, green melon, fig, mineral and spice flavors. Could finish a big drier, but it's an outstanding wine for cocktails, Asian fare and seafood salads.
