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

Remarkably brilliant with rich fruit and balanced acidity, this wine shows fragrant citrus blossom, lemon and floral aromas, with melon, pear, lychee nut and key-lime flavors on a honeysuckle mineral-rich finish.

Critical Acclaim

"One of three Semillons in L'Ecole’s portfolio, this includes 11% Sauvignon Blanc in the blend. It shows rich, ripe pear and melon fruit flavors, lightly spicy, with classic varietal grip and mid-palate richness. The impression of lanolin is unmistakable."

This Semillon was a great alternative to most whites I have recently purchased. Crisp, unique, melon flavors...went well with a heavier, creamy dish.

It's the pride and joy of areas like Sauternes and Barsac for its ability to incur botrytis, or noble rot. The grape takes well to the fungus and in turn produces rich, golden,...
