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

The 2011 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc embodies the quintessential Marlborough style – full-flavored and medium-bodied with fragrant notes of peach, gooseberry and ripe tropical fruit, followed by freshly cut herb undertones. Showcasing a brilliant straw color, this elegant wine refreshes the palate with a long, clean finish.

Style: Light & Crisp
I do not typically like Sauvignon Blancs -they carry too much forward melon flavors and it is just not my thing. This wine is a total departure from that - I loved it. First had at Latitude 41 in Columbus, OH and had to order some. It is a very crisp wine that has all the great qualities of a NZ/AUS whites (full of crisp fruit, some earthy tones, and enough tang and acid to make you pucker just the right amount). And, while I did not want to use a bottle on it, it makes a mean St. Germain Sangria (combine a bottle of wine with 1 cup St. Germain Liquor, 5-6 fresh strawberries, several fresh raspberries, 2 fresh peaches, and white grapes). Definitely worth a try for those who have a similar melon aversion, and for those who do not and typically enjoy this type of wine, do exactly that and enjoy it with a friend!
