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

#68 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

The nose is bursting with stone fruits - peaches and apricots and lime citrus characters. The generous, multi-layered palate begins with typical Viognier pear flavours which meshes seamlessly with fresh, melon flavours from the Pinot Gris. The tannin from the Pinot Gris adds firmness and structure to the palate. The 2007 vintage is tighter, fresher and more zesty than the 2006.

Critical Acclaim

"Smells like Viognier, with all the floral and sweet lychee fruit up front, then lightnens up in the mouth, with freshness and pazzazz of Pinot Gris. A lovely balance. Drink now."
91 Points

"Light, bright yellow. Spicy pear and apple aromas are complemented by notes of honeysuckle and white pepper. A relatively demure expression of the variety, offering a supple texture and round orchard and pit fruit flavors. Finishes with a refreshingly bitter note of pear skin and very good juicy persistence. This is rich enough to handle full-flavored foods."
