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

Pale straw gold. Delicate aromas of tropical fruit with subtle nuances of caramel and hazelnut. Full-bodied and harmonious, concluding in a long, smooth finish.

Enjoy as an aperitif or with a variety of dishes, including fish, pasta in cream sauces and a wide array of appetizers. Serve chilled.

Critical Acclaim

"This wine is a delight to the nose and mouth, with aromas of passion fruit and honeysuckle that are followed by flavors of lemon angel-food cake, vanilla ice cream and orange sorbet. It’s soft and refreshing on the palate, and it closes with a zesty floral and spice backsplash. "
