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

Light straw in color. Intense aromas of guava, with lemon grass, key lime, Crenshaw melon, tangerine, sweet orange blossom and alyssum. It has a full and lush mouthfeel with refreshing acidity providing for a wonderfully long finish that ends with clean minerality of wet slate, and bright kumquat rind.

Critical Acclaim

"Lemon-lime and guava flavors are bright and juicy, with spice, floral and minerally details. Clean and refreshing."
88 Points

"A bit of neutral oak has allowed this fresh, bone-dry Sauvignon Blanc to breathe and mellow. It's made from the Musque clone, which gives it an exotic gooseberry and lime-like grassiness, while one-fifth Sémillon brings needed fatness and oiliness to a wine that otherwise would be severely lean. Editors' Choice."

Nothing spectacular here. Drinkable enough. Doesn't warrant the $19.99 price.
