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

After fermenting in stainless steel vats, a small percentage of the wine was left to mature in 10 hectolitre oak casks, while the rest matured in steel. Pale greenish-yellow in color, the wine has a fresh, fruity nose. On the palate it is dry and harmonious, with a full enough body to pair well with salamis and hams, as well as pasta dishes with aromatic vegetable sauces, and goat cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Sylvaner is another gorgeous wine. Perfumed peaches, apricots, mint and flowers come together in a gorgeous, finely-knit medium-bodied wine of notable elegance and purity. This is high-class juice. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012. Kofererhof is located in Valle Isarco, one of the most privileged spots in Alto Adige for intensely focused, mineral-driven whites. Proprietor Gunther Kerschbaumer began estate-bottling his own wines with the 1995 vintage, and since then Kofererhof has emerged as one of Italy's most exciting properties. Unfortunately only a few of the 2008s were in bottle as we went to press, but I hope to be able to taste the rest of the estate's current releases in the near future."

Gunter Kerschbaumer is an unusually talented young man who makes some of Italy's best white wines. Unbelievably good sylvaner, Muller-Thurgau and kerner arise from splendidly situated vineyards at close to 700 meters above sea level. These are wines that will put to rest any preconceived notions you may have on those grapes. His riesling is quickly becoming one of the best Italian...

Other White Wine While there are a slew of other white varietals out there in the world, a few more worth knowing about... Albarino Mostly grown and drunk in the northwest part of Spain, Rias Baixas (in Galacia), this grape is loved by almost all who try it.
