  • 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 origin of the Sylvaner grape can possibly be traced back to the 1600's where it was brought form Transylvania to Alto-Adige hence its name. The vine is also said to have originated from Germany and Austria. The grapes require the perfect orientation, climate and altitude to produce a high quality wine.

Light yellow color with green highlights, fresh fruity aromas of pear and melon. Good-bodied and with a decisive minerality and dry taste. Perfect for prosciutto, pastas with vegetable based sauces, oven baked fish and goat cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Sylvaner is a taut, focused white with pretty layers of perfumed, mineral-driven fruit. A long, refreshing finish rounds out this beautiful mid-weight wine.

Abbazia di Novacella is a reliable source for fairly-priced wines from Alto Adige that express plenty of varietal and regional character. These entry-level wines are all aged in stainless steel. "

"Cool climate aromas of passion fruit, white peach and crisp Granny Smith apple give this wine intensity and personality. It’s lean and compact in the mouth but would make an excellent companion to Thai spring rolls or Vietnamese dishes."
