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

An elegant, crisp and fruity Riesling with a hint of natural residual sweetness. This wine has the typical light character of the Riesling grape and the style of a classic Mosel Riesling.

Critical Acclaim

"Opulent and exotic, featuring brown spice, slate, smoke and tropical fruit notes. This is an open, fluid white, drier in style than most in this group and higher in alcohol. The submerged acidity reveals itself on the finish, along with a tactile sensation around the gums."
