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

"Veigas" are the verdant fields of Galicia. Selected grapes from two "eidos" of ungrafted vines over 80 years old are micro-vinified each year. Held on the fine lees until July following the vintage, a mouth-filling, complex and lingering Albariño is the result.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Veiga de Padrinan was sourced from ungrafted 80+-year-old vines. It is a bit more terroir-driven with an intense mineral element, earth notes, lemon, and floral rudiments. On the palate it is impeccably balanced, concentrated, and lengthy. It should drink well for several more years. "
92 Points

"Made from older vines (40 to 80 years old) than the Eidos de Padriñán recommended above, this is more ambitious and powerful. The tension between its lime-citrus fruit and briny mineral components comes across as volatility, the unctuous fruit and tart acidity not completely integrated. It needs time to meld or something substantial to match, like grilled merluza (hake)."
91 Points

"Light yellow-gold. Floral honey, melon and pear on the nose, with dusty mineral and lemon pith notes adding vivacity. Bracing and sharply delineated, offering zesty lemon and green apple flavors and a dusty mineral quality. The dry finish features a strong echo of citrus zest. This would be great with raw oysters."

Try the Pazzo de Barrantes 2010. It costs less and was much more enjoyable to drink. This wine had an astringency to it that I couldn't get past.
