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

Bottled in June of the year following the harvest, the wine is both fermented and aged in stainless steel. Its color ranges from a greenish to a golden yellow; its nose is fruity with aromatic notes. On the palate it is pleasantly fresh and sapid; at 14% alcohol it is a well-structured full-bodied white wine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Kerner flows with the essence of passion fruit, lime, honey and jasmine. The expansive, generous style suggests notes of botrytis-like sweetness that add wonderful complexity. The 2008 is an especially rich, generous vintage for this wine. This is a gorgeous effort from Kofererhof. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012."
