Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Pale straw with green reflections. Rich and concentrated, with white flower and apricot notes. Smooth, medium-bodied with good fruit acidity.
Delicious with light meals such as salads, poultry, chicken, veal, roast pork, and seafood. The Pinot Blanc has beautiful fruitiness and makes an excellent all-occasion drinking wine.
"A light, tangy Pinot Blanc, with hints of glazed pear, lemon curd and spice. The clean and dry finish lingers, boasting hints of smoke and apple blossom."
"Very pale, green-tinged color. Deeply pitched aromas of dried apricot and stone; less fruity but more serious than the 2008 version. An attractive, slightly oily midweight, with firm acidity giving energy to the stone fruit flavors. Dry but not austere, and long on the finish for basic pinot blanc. In a rather elegant style."

It was okay. I like a little bit more fruit. But perfectly chilled makes a big difference. Good stuff!
I like it. It is a bit fruity, but also a bit herbaceous, which balances it out nicely. It is delicious, actually! ... said the girl who really likes REDS better!
I really liked this wine, definitely serve very chilled. Great fruit on the palate, very smooth.
