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

This unique white blend is a sensory revelation. We wondered what it would be like to blend grapes from three high-elevation vineyards from across Argentina from three talented growers, and we were happily surprised. This baby is bright, fresh, and crisp with floral aromas and citrusy flavors with plenty of body from the unoaked Chardonnay.

For food partners, we're still pondering what food this wouldn't go with, but for sure it's a wine to keep in the fridge for all occasions between Easter and Halloween

Critical Acclaim

"The unoaked 2009 Cocina Blanco de Blancos is an intriguing blend of 70% Chardonnay, 15% Torrontes, and 15% Sauvignon Blanc. It exhibits an excellent bouquet of mineral, citrus, and lemon meringue leading to a medium-bodied, dry, intensely flavored, ripe wine that would be a fine match for a crab cake. "
88 Points

"Full golden yellow. Aromas of very ripe stone and tropical fruits, with a strong element of smoky, spicy oak. Supple, sweet and spicy, with just enough liveliness from the sauvignon and torrontes to leaven the chardonnay's butterscotch and caramel notes. Slightly phenolic on the back but this offers good texture for a white wine in this price range."

Learn About La Posta

We have tasted over a thousand wines since we began importing from Argentina. In that time, we have discovered a handful of grape growers whose results in the vineyards with specific varietals have been truly amazing--year in, year out. Our first encounter with many of these growers was at a posta del vinatero, or tavern of the grape grower. Here they drank wine and spoke...

Learn About Argentina

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector. A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner. Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...
