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

Bursting with lime and lemon the aroma of this wine heralds a great drink. Bright and crystal clear with pale green hues, the wine is crisp and fresh on the palate with great length and moreish sweet fruit. Lovely now but with the potential to age for many years.

Enjoy with grilled octopus, antipasto or tapas.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and zingy, with lime and green apple flavors glowing brightly on the sleek frame, finishing with pizzazz. Drink now through 2016."
