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 brilliant dry wine with a balanced combination of lively acidity and extract. Elegant, with invigorating freshness that recalls grapefruit and peach. Ideal for every season, young vegetables and white meat.

Critical Acclaim

"This blend,from several estate vineyards, is slightly off-dry,with a power and thickness to it in the mouth that belies its modest 12.5% alcohol. Honeyed pear and briny gravel notes are complex and satisfying, while reflecting the limestone marl soils of the region.
