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

This is our first Nuthouse Chardonnay to be dominantly from Lone Star Vineyard. Unlike Pinot Noir, we have found that Chardonnay vines require more age before "making the grade". In this case, the vines were 8 years old.

Very bright aromas of white peaches, roasted hazelnuts, with blossom honey and a unique fresh roasted wheat kernel jump out of the glass. The flavor has a surprising concentration of white peach and hint of melon up front and in the juicy mid-palate, all tethered to an exciting Meyer lemon cool climate mineral backbone. A fresh-fruited finish is framed by delicious roasted hazelnut, vanilla, and key lime citrus long after the glass is emptied.

Critical Acclaim

"A bright and lively white, delivering a silky-textured mouthful of pear, grapefruit and cream aromas and flavors that linger with a hint of walnut on the refined finish. Drink now through 2012."
92 Points

"The 2007 Chardonnay Nut House exhibits a lovely perfume of baking spice, toast, mineral, hazelnut, and tropical aromas. Creamy textured and vibrant on the palate reflecting the natural acidity achievable in 2007, it has a zingy core of fruit, intense flavors, and a lengthy, pure finish. It has the balance to drink well for at least a decade much like the 1999. Drink: 2009 - 2019 "

Very nice, but I expected better than very nice for the price, considering the review, and from this producer. I think this wine is on the decline and should be drunk soon (as of mid-2011).
