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

With the help of the ancient varietals of Galician white grapes, including Godello and Loureira (along with small amounts of Albariño, Torrontes, Albilla and Caiño), this wine is an aromatic, tasty and deliciously refreshing Viña Mein.

Blend: 80% Treixadura, 10% Godello, 5% Loureiro, and 1% to 2% each of Albariño, Torrontés, Albilla and Caiño

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Vina Mein is composed of 80% Treixadura along with 6 other varieties fermented and aged sur lie in stainless steel. Tropical aromas, honey, melon, and mineral inform the nose of this dry, complex, vibrant white. With excellent volume and precision balance, this lengthy effort will provide pleasure over the next 5 years."
91 Points

"(80% treixadura, 10% godello, 5% loureiro and the rest albarino, torrontes, albilla and caino): Pale yellow-gold. Fresh melon and fig aromas are complicated by notes of peach pit and licorice. Impressively complex and lithe, with penetrating citrus and pit fruit flavors braced by dusty minerals. An herbal note builds with air and carries through the long, dry, sharply focused finish"
