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

Aromas of fragrant lime and lemon peel, a hint of cantaloupe and an undertone chalky, stony note greeting the nose. The palate is succulent, supple and juicy with those citrus flavors driving through the core and finishing with a lick of fresh acid and savory minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"Tight with the flavor of green grapes, this wine is round and smooth, yielding lemongrass and flint notes in the finish. It should open up with a few months in the bottle, to chill for a calamari and carrot salad.

88 Points

"The 2009 Omrah Chardonnay is an unwooded style that receives no malo-lactic, remaining 12 months on its lees with stirring. It has intensely tropical aromas of pineapple, guava and honeydew. Medium bodied with good concentration and balanced acid, it finishes long if a little simple. Drink it now to 2014. "
