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

Much like Riesling, Gewürztraminer is a variety that is ideally placed in the cool climate of the Finger Lakes. This wine draws from the oldest planting of Gewürztraminer in the region and subsequently exhibits outstanding depth and maturity. The harvest in 2008 allowed for a long ripening period, resulting in outstanding flavors. This dry style wine accentuates the characteristic floral and spice notes particular to Gewürztraminer. A vivid flowery bouquet with hints of peach and spice masterfully prepare the way for a silky mouthful of melon and a touch of coriander.

Food Pairing: Asian cuisine, Pork, Aromatic Cheese

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh, with pure floral and peach notes up front, followed by a juicy, lychee- and quinine-filled finish. An off-dry hint keeps this flattering. Drink now. 790 cases made."
