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

White gold/platnum straw color. Aromas of pear, cantaloupe, lime zest, tropical fruit and spice. Flavors of citrus, mango, pineapple and honey. This wine has great weigth and acidity, with a nice balance of acid and sugar, and a long crisp finish with minerality. One of America's finest white wines, our Domaine Pinot Gris is 100% steel tank fermented and aged for 11 months on the lees.

Critical Acclaim

"Done in 100% stainless steel and left sur lie for eight months, this intensely fruity, spicy Pinot Gris could be the archetype for Oregon style. Bold pear fruit is set in citrusy acids and dotted with cinnamon spice. Fresh, crisp and full-bodied."
