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

Light yellow with green highlights. This easygoing thirst quenching wine which reveals green apple and white flowers aromas; concentrated, dry, with a fresh citric acidity which balanced so well with all this fruit.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich, deep gold color. Slightly reductive on the nose muting aromas. Some fusel notes break through. Broad earthy palate with moderate intensity of ultra-ripe stone fruit flavors. Fairly open-knit and soft texture, with hints of minerality. Moderately long, warm finish."

This was a really great white wine and it's too bad it's sold out. Unlike a lot of white wines that have a good flavor but might be flat, this wine has a great taste and a very nice, intricate flavors. Not sweet and not overly dry. I served this recently at a party and everyone commented how much they enjoyed it.

Learn About Pinot Blanc

Pinot Blanc(pee-no blahnk) Pretty and Simple A mutation of the Pinot family, Pinot Blanc was once commonly mistaken for Chardonnay - it looks quite similar on the vine.
