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

The subtle fruity aromas and the freshness of the Demi-Sec drives the character of this light bodied, semi-dry sparkling wine. The palate carries through with a creamy sensation and vivid flavor of green apples, ripe pears, pineapple and a hint of mineral. It is delicate, lively and elegant! Winemaker's Note: Toasty bouquet, light and elegant with good acidity, exotic fruit flavors.

Very nice sparkling wine! Husband even enjoyed it and he normally does not like sparkling wine. Not to dry nor to sweet.

I just moved to New Mexico and wanted to get a taste of the local wines. Gruet is far and away the leader in the State and their sparkling wines are not to be missed. My wife and I prefer sparkling wines that are NOT super dry and this one fit the bill perfectly. Great balance with a refreshing finish make this one a staple in our fridge and you should give it a try as well.

Learn About New Mexico

One of the least likely areas to expect wine, New Mexico's wine potential was tapped when the Gruets, a French family, moved to the state with the intention of making sparkling wine. Just to show that the French really do know what they are doing (the Gruets were from the Champagne region after all), Gruet is now a nationally, if not internationally, recognized wine. The...
