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

Vibrant lemon-green in color, the Lícia Albariño exhibits a classic expression of the Albariño grape: intense and layered aromas of grapefruit, candied lemons, quince jelly, fresh herbs, green apples and a streak of minerality. On the palate it is full-bodied and well-balanced, with a long and persistent finish. This wine pairs deliciously with grilled fish—or any kind of seafood—Asian cuisines, rice dishes, salads and grilled vegetables.

Critical Acclaim

"With its apple, peach and melon aromas, the bouquet is solid. Tha palate is a bit spritzy and spread thin, and that's confirmed via fleshy, dilute flavors of white peach and green melon. Plump and simple on the finish; good for salads, shrimp and grilled white meats."
