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

Korbel Brut is the ultimate blended wine. We blend multiple varieties from multiple appellations and even multiple years. The goal is to make a champagne that consistently delivers a lot of quality for the price. Korbel Brut is crisp and refreshing, with a light citrus and fresh pear-like note in the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This is crisp and loaded with spice, offering creamy apple, citrus and anise flavors that are balanced, with a vibrant finish. Drink now. 6,500 cases made."
88 Points

"Another fine brut from Korbel, dry, yeasty and citrusy, just like good bubbly should be. It's a little rough and scoury in the bubbles, but at this price, a good deal."
