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

Vin Glacé, also known as Ice Wine, is a style of wine made from ripe frozen grapes. Pressing the frozen grapes produces a sweet juice, while leaving the frozen water crystals and grape skins behind. The resulting juice is very concentrated in aromas and flavors and demonstrates intense varietal character. Fermentation occurs slowly and is stopped before the wine is fermented dry.

Medium golden straw color. Aromas of tropical fruits, apricot, banana, tangerine, and a touch of spice.

Peach, apricot, guava, and Mirabelle plum flavors. Great balance, soft and round yet crisp with a spicey finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This vintage of Vin Glace` is vibrant and fresh, from the scents of saffron, passionfruit and white peach, to the lemony tone and flavors. It balances ripe apple with brisk acidity, lasting on a hint of vanillin amd lemon creme."
