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

Our 2012 vintage shows a golden hue. Aromas of melon, orange blossom and citrus get the refreshing mental picture started with a clean ocean minerality and lemon cream finish. An oak note of toasted vanilla contributes to the wine's complexity. The wine drinks of honeydew melon, pear and subtle citrus spice with a round middle and clean finish. The wine shows a light to medium weight with a richness and breadth that satisfies. In a word…sublime!

Pair this wine with fish sauteed in a butter and lemon sauce. Fresh crab, mussels or chilled melon soup would make nice pairings as well. Grilled chicken, tuna salad or grilled panzanella salad make great summer pairings. Finally, a simple pizza, light summer lasagna or pasta with white sauce would do well with the richness and acidity of the wine.
