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

We pick the Vin de Glacière Riesling grapes around 22.5% sugar in order to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes. The grapes are then frozen. We press the grapes frozen, resulting in a concentrated press juice (about 36% sugar) and a low yield (about half the regular yield). The concentrated juice is fermented until we reach 16% Residual Sugar. The wine shows loads of pear, and some honey and horse radish. On the palate, the wine is surprisingly light and aromatic but not syrupy or heavy. This has to do with the great acidity (0.88%) in the wine. The 10.4% Ethanol makes the wine very refreshing and quite food friendly.

The alcohol is 10.4%, acid is 0.88%, pH is 3.14 and Residual Sugar is 16.0%

Critical Acclaim

"Dark and savory, this focused wine leads with amber scents of peach and caramel. It has the palate weight of honey, and rich, lasting flavors of apricot."
92 Points

"The 2007 Riesling Vin de Glaciere Wallula Vineyard (now known as The Benches) was made from frozen grapes until the wine achieved 16.1% residual sugar and finished at 8.9% alcohol. Nicely balanced by lively acidity, this intense, succulent, pleasure-bent offering is an awesome value in high-class booty-call wine."

Superb dessert wine. Sweet but not in excess. Delightful passion fruit/citrus scent. Make sure you serve it very chilled.

A light, sweet wine that would be good thoroughly chilled on a hot summer day.
