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

Closed and undeveloped which is always a plus for long term cellaring. The smokey oak flavors resulting from barrel fermentation and extended lees ageing are subdued and all the necessary ingredients are there for a great future. These chardonnays are never fruity and forward, but instead show their age slowly, becoming fine, elegant and delicious in their own time.

These are stimulating wines of great depth and complexity, their reputation earned through consistency of quality. They will richly reward those seeking true expressions of a vineyard's character.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale, bright straw-yellow. Peachy grapefruit fragrance over creamy, buttery oak tones of spice and vanilla. An exercise in creaminess and silky texture, with fine balancing crystalline minerality. Its bright citrus fruits and punchy, warm, ripe finish is round, soft and long."
