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 defining characteristics of the 2011 vintage in Germany are purity and balance. The 2011 St. M Riesling is bright, with the delicate peach aroma and stony minerality that is typical of the weathered sandstone soils found in the Pfalz region. It is a medium-bodied, off-dry Riesling with a fine fruitiness that lingers lovingly on the palate and then fades gently into a medium-long, dry-tasting finish. A charming and versatile Riesling from an excellent, extremely satisfying vintage.
