Monte Xanic Vina Kristel Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon 2001
Other White Blends from
This Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon coupage is a brilliantly transparent, pale yellow wine, with complex aromas of tropical fruits, such as melon and leechi and secondary notes of oak, caramel and butter. On the palate the wine is dry, light-bodied with a pleasant acidity.
This very versatile wine goes well with poultry as well as seafood, especially oysters and shrimp. Its pleasant freshness makes it a good complement for spicy cuisine, such as Mexican, Chinese and Thai dishes.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost 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%.
