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

From free-run juice, the new wine is racked into large, centuries-old subterranean oak vessels prior to clarification and bottling. A highly extractive, herbaceous and minerally-complex Verdejo with excellent aging capacity and a perennial hallmark wine for the region.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Marinsancho Verdejo is, as usual, one of the finest of its vintage. It is a terroir-driven offering with aromas of melon, citrus, nutmeg, mineral, and floral notes. Crisp, vibrant, and intense, this impeccably balanced offering is a role-model of precision Verdejo. Drink this outstanding value (although it is pricy for Verdejo) over the next 3-4 years. "
