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 apricot, white peach and a hint of lemon. A round mouth feel, revealing flavors of apricot and citrus. Dry, fresh and compelling.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and bright, with forward flavors of grilled peach and apple, this ripe white has a pleasing weight that suggests it's still wending its way to greater balance. Cellar and serve with grilled tilapia.
