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

Acrobat Pinot Gris is an extremely approachable wine and a versatile food companion. It has been consistently praised for it's value, delivering great quality for a modest price.

The color is a pale straw with golden highlights. On the nose there is melon, green apple, citrus, spice and tropical fruit. On the palate there is tangerine, lemon, kiwi and pear. This wine has a crisp entry with nice balance between acidity and residual sugar, round and full mid-palate, with a clean and refreshing finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Clean and citrusy in scent, with a soft leesy note, this brisk gris has a peppery phenolic bite that makes it ideal for pairing with whole-roasted fish."

Very Light and smooth, Great Pinot Gris. Nice long fruit finish

Very drinkable, but also not in the same class as its big brother or Benton Lane. For a couple bucks more, better options exist in my opinion.

This Acrobat is a great little white wine from an underrated varietal. Pinot Gris, which is actually a mutation of Pinot Noir, is one of the noble varietals in Alsace, France. I have always loved using Alsatian Pinot Gris as a utility player because of its elegance and versatility, but Oregon has definitely staked their claim as one of the top Pinot Gris producers in the world. This wine is filled with lemon grass, kaffir lime leaf, honeysuckle, tangerine and crisp, tart tree fruit like pears and granny smith apples. It is a high acid wine that has a lot of potential to compliment high acid dishes, but it could also be used to contrast fatty dishes by cutting through cream or butter. Food Pairing Suggestions: The Acrobat Pinot Gris would be a fantastic paring with Asian food, especially fried appetizers like egg rolls, wontons or samosas. Just be careful not to pair it with dishes containing too much spice as this wine isn’t sweet enough to cool off those taste buds like a German Riesling. I could see this wine cutting through the fat of heavier dishes like a quiche, chicken pot pie, cream soups or creamed spinach. I think it would also be lovely with light white fish.

An Oregon wine can simply state Oregon as its place of origin, which typically means the grapes came from multiple smaller AVAs within the state. Beyond the main AVAs of Oregon, like Willamette Valley, Rogue and Umpqua, smaller regions are gaining ground. Some you may see on the label include: Columbia or Walla...
