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

Verdelho is a semi-aromatic white grape that was traditionally used in the production of the revered wines of the island of Madeira. Verdelho has found popularity with forward thinking vintners from around the world in the production of delicious table wines. This bottling is full bodied with tropical and citrus fruit aromas with grapefruit, melon and apple flavors. This refreshing wine can be enjoyed as an aperitif or served with seafoods or Pacific Rim cuisine.

Verdelho's aroma and bouquet is unique and reminds me of citrus flowers and ripe Casaba melon. Its palate weight is more full-bodied than many other white wines.
