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

Golden straw colors. Aromas of baked apples, touch of pineapple/tropical fruit, element of zesty citrus on the nose. On the palate, green apple, pastry, light body with vibrant acidity and abundant fruit, slight hint of creamy oak reminiscent of crème brulée. Bright with flavors of tropical fruit. The refreshing acidity keeps these extraordinary flavors juicy and light with a smooth finish.
