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

Our second vintage of the Monterey Chardonnay has evolved, yet still saw only stainless steel and remains fresh, crisp and exuberant—exactly what we like about Chardonnay.

The cool, breezy weather of Monterey Bay allows for a longer period of maturation which enables the grapes more time to develop classic varietal characteristics. This growing environment produces a Chardonnay with aromas of orange blossom, white peach and jasmine with a bright acid structure.

The vineyards of Monterey consistently provide ideal fruit and exemplify our winemaking goal: a natural balance between sugar and acidity. This vintage of the Monterey Chardonnay provided us with yet another year to display our progression towards a more complete wine, one which marries brightness and energy with subtle weightiness on the palate, providing our truest expression, thus far, of the fruit.
