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

The color is a bright, vibrant gold with green reflections. The bouquet is of stone fruit (such as white peaches, apricots), lemon, pineapple. On the palate are stone fruit flavors that round out a full-bodied, balanced, exquisite wine with distinct mineral and flint nuances.

Delicious with lobster, shrimp and spicy Thai-style dishes, as well as blue cheeses, creamy cheeses, apple pie and fresh fruit

Critical Acclaim

"Aromatic, showing lilac, freesia and violet notes, followed by baked apple, black currants and slate flavors. Elegant and tightly wound, with a racy structure well-fused to the rich texture. The appealing aftertaste features notes of candied berries and mineral."
94 Points

"This plump creamy-textured spatlese displays ample minerality – there’s a distinctly slate-driven note – allied to ripe apple, stone fruit and citrus. Sweet but not overwhelmingly so, this would be terrific with slightly sweet or spicy dishes."
92 Points
