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 Glace is a 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.

Alizarin yellow in color. Aromas of apricot, honey, quince, figs, grape flower, and fruit leather. Flavors of caramel, papaya, mandarian orance, grapefruit, honey, dried apricots. In the mouth, the wine is sweet and viscous with crisp acid and a long mid palate.

Critical Acclaim

"Sweet and rich, with a deft stiletto of citrusy acidity balancing the opulent pineapple, fig and orange blossom flavors, lingering enticingly."
