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

The color is pale yellow, moving to green. Clarity is excellent. The nose is earthy with melon with notes of leather. Strong on the mid palate, the flavors over apple and melon predominate with a bit of pineapple. Good depth and character are derived from 21 days in French oak. The acidity is moderate making it a nice match for oily fish like salmon but flexible enough for chicken and pork as long as the sauce is not too rich or very spicy. This is a crisp, easy to drink wine for every day.

Pairs well with Crab, raw oysters, scallops, shrimp, smoked seafood; white meats like chicken, pork; citrus, vinaigrettes.
