Alcohol By Volume: 13.0%

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 finished wine offers citrus and floral aromas supported by a delicate almond character on the palate. The lees and oak aging give the wine a solid body and structure that would make it an excellent partner to light meats and pastas as well as richer seafood dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe lime aromas and a full richly fruity palate give a rounded character to this wine. Apricot juice and tangerine brighten up the palate, fitting well with the wood and fruit structure. Keep for another few months for the whole wine to fill out even more."

A good summer-wine accompaniment to a light dinner. Fruity, but with an excessive herbaceousness in the back of the mouth.
