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

A blend of 93% Pinot Gris, 4% Chardonnay and 3% White Riesling.

This vintage reveals vibrant aromas and flavors of green apple and citrus complemented by a hint of mineral and a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel.

Pairs well with salads, light seafood, delicate fish dishes and spicy foods.
