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.

Winemaker's Notes

Yellow straw in color with greenish nuances, bright and well defined. it is a voluptuous white wine with a surprising capability of bottle longevity that preserves it's wide aromatic offering of citrus, fruity and floral frangrances of grapefruits, pears and white flowers. In the mouth it reveals it's elegant personality, freshness and varietal character, with a remarkable pleasant and well defined texture. All through the mouth it shows up a succulent feeling adding a certain muscular structure balanced by a smooth-as-silk acidity with a persistent and lengthy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Marques de Murrieta owns an estate in Rias Baixas where Albarino is produced. The 2010 Pazo Barrantes Albarino is a fragrant white that spent several months on its lees. Aromas and flavors of jasmine, lemon, and tropical notes are displayed on a smooth-textured platform featuring lively acidity, plenty of spice notes, and excellent balance. This lengthy effort will deliver pleasure for the next 3-4 years. "

Really like this. It seems very versatile. It went well with tortilla chips and both pico de gallo and guacamole. Also paired well with linguine and white wine clam sauce as well as pizza.
